How to pass down that old leather jacket!

The beauty of a leather jacket is that it gains more character as it ages. The leather has a story to tell, whether it’s the owner’s military service or the adventures he’s experienced on his journey through life. It’s a time-honored tradition to pass down a trusty old leather jacket to the next generation; and these old leather jackets are much desired since the history and character these jackets possess cannot be duplicated by any “new” leather jacket.

Unfortunately, while the jacket’s leather is often in satisfactory condition, the other non-leather components are often broken, tattered or have deteriorated beyond repair. Fortunately, US Wings’ Professional Leather Jacket Repair Services can make it possible to pass down that worn-out special jacket by replacing the zippers, linings, cuffs & waistbands; we can even replace G-1 collars and perform minor leather repairs.
