Need A New Coat This Winter? Here Are Three Reasons Why You Should Choose Real Leather
Christmas is swiftly on its way and, for many of us, the cold weather and icy winds are already here. As the days get darker, it can be tempting to stay inside and keep warm, but it’s also important to see some daylight once in a while, which means wrapping up tight.
Here at Leather Treasure, we know that a winter coat needs to be three things: cozy, warm, and stylish. On top of that, it always helps if it can stand up to a little wear and tear. We believe that a good leather coat can meet all of these goals and more, which is why we’ve put together this list of three reasons to buy a leather coat this winter.
1. It Feels Warmer
When it comes to good insulation, you can’t do much better than real leather. As the product of millions of years of evolution, leather is nature’s ultimate answer to keeping out the cold, and, for as long as there have been humans, we’ve been borrowing it to make clothing.
Leather is lightweight, waterproof, and excellent at keeping in the warmth. Where many winter coats are bulky, even a thin layer of leather will do a lot to protect you from the elements without compromising on comfort. If you’re looking for a coat to keep you cozy, you really can’t go wrong with leather.
2. It Lasts Longer
Let's face it, in recent years faux leather has come a long way. It might sound scandalous coming from a leather store, but we’re not too proud to recognize quality when we see it. That being said, there are several counts on which faux leather will never win out over the real stuff and by far the biggest is its longevity.
Real leather can last for years without showing signs of damage, while the same cannot be said about its polymer-derived counterparts. Even when real leather does begin to age, the signs of wear and tear are slow to appear and can often give a nice vintage look to a piece. When faux leather ages it’s quick to crack completely breaking the illusion.
Real leather is always the way to go for a look that will age with grace.
3. It Looks Better
Okay, so we may be a little biased but, be honest with yourself, what better look is there than a nice leather coat?
There’s a reason leather coats never go out of style and that’s because they always look cool. They’re the perfect combination of sleek modernity and traditional comfort. From sweeping dusters to padded body warmers, leather has always lent a touch of class to any style of coat and it will no doubt continue to do so for years to come.
At the end of the day, leather really is the best all-purpose material you could look for in a winter coat. While it might not be able to protect you from an arctic storm, for practical, everyday usage, we believe you won’t find a better material on the market.
