The vests are produced all over the world from Italy to Canada and even the United States. The meat industry is the starting point when it comes to their assembly. Other alternatives to the natural leather vests are made from PVC. These materials have a distinct similarity to leather materials and are used as an alternative if the wearer finds it a bit too cumbersome to wear original leather. In addition, this alternative comes in whenever there is an increase in demand for leather vests. With celebrities like “Batman” adorning the vest, you will most likely find a heightened demand for the vest. When you acquire one though, here are a few steps on caring for it.
- There is not much needed for the smooth surface. Just thoroughly cleaning it and reconditioning it will do the trick. Use mild detergent if you want the best result. You can use a damp cloth to do the rinsing and remove excess water through patting.
- Conditioning the vest is also important. This will prevent the material from cracking and drying. This is done easily by rubbing some leather conditioner on the surface.
- For those with suede options, you need to tend after the material immediately it comes from the store. Make sure that water and some stain protection has been sprayed on the material as you do the purchase. The smoother end of the material should also be conditioned. Any stain on the suede area can be eliminated using a rubber eraser or very fine sandpaper. Any water spot that needs cleaning should first be allowed to dry, after which it is brushed using a suede brush.
- Avoid folding the vests, as this will easily cause creases all over the folded areas. Wooden hangers should be used to store them. Should you spot a crease on the leather area, you can simply hang the vest over the shower after a hot steam bath and let the steam work its way through the crease.
