HOW TO CHOOSE HIGH QUALITY LEATHER
Updated: Jan 6, 2019
Leather is always a good choice, especially when talking about the best leather quality in the world: Argentine leather.
Choose leather for durability and versatility
One of the outstanding features of a high-quality leather jacket is its durability. Generally speaking, the larger the animal, the more substantial the leather will be, both in thickness and in weight. While a leather jacket purchased at a discount store may seem like a bargain, it won't look as good nor last nearly as long as a premium one like the ones we craft at LAFFON. The investment is well worth it: when quality leather jackets are properly cared for, they can last a lifetime.
Versatile leather pieces are available in a variety of textures and finishes. Heavy and durable by nature, it's the leather-of-choice for motorcycle jackets, briefcases, luxury bags and belts. The latest techniques in tanning and finishing also are creating lightweight versions of leather that are excellent for year-around wear. It's easy to care for, water-and dirt resistant, and the perfect match for any lifestyle.
Choose leather for beautiful finish options
Strong, yet lightweight and luxurious Argentine leather is the ultimate leather indulgence. It responds beautifully to tanning techniques and color finishes, giving it wonderful dimension and rich hules. It's soft-to-touch, durable and unparalleled quality makes it the favorite among the world's top designers.
The superior quality of construction in LAFFON's leather jackets shows the attention to detail that is given by the artisan who is dedicated to producing a high-end product communicating the sense of timeless beauty. LAFFON works with Argentina's top leather tanneries and we pride ourselves on delivering only the very best.
Choose leather for its different types
The type of leather is a huge determining factor in a coat's function and feel. There is no "best type" of leather; rather, each has its own unique characteristics and strengths.
At LAFFON, we choose only the best Argentine Lamb Leather, which is the crème de la crème of leather in terms of softness, suppleness, and wearability. It has a luxurious texture and is quite versatile, working equally as well in an elegant, full-length coat or a chic, cropped leather jacket. Naturally very lightweight, leather jackets made from lambskin can be worn comfortably year-round.
Lamb leather lightweight nature and buttery texture give it a sophisticated appeal, which makes it the perfect choice for dressier jackets, sportswear and accesories.
Being Argentine lamb leather the best in the world, it transforms beautifully into today's most-fashion forward designs.
