Thank you for stopping by the boutique. I asked about the leather jacket. The idea is not have the leather jacket trenched in water for a very long time. Even though some jackets might withstand very harsh conditions! in fact each leather jacket has his own strength given by the fact that is a different leather all the time. High quality leather is treated in small batches. Bottom line is our jackets are of the best quality and probably the best option you can have for weather challenging conditions, plus if you take care of it it will last you a very long time!
