Scuff marks on leather

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by The Predecessor, May 7, 2009.

  1. Okay, so I went for a slide down the road on the weekend...

    I have some scuff marks on my leather jacket, any suggestions as to how I can fix them up to make it look like new again?

    They arent the worst of scuff marks, but they're still there... light, white, looking marks... Suggestions are appreciated :)
  2. I'd hit it with some 'leather food', or simply use boot polish on it. This latter will be easy if its a black jacket, but any other colours will probably benefit from just the leather food.

    You may want to ask your local dealer about products available.

  3. Leathers are supposed to bear scars. So you can show them off without having to bear them yourself :wink: .
  4. Is leather food a brand name? Where can you get it from?
  5. Yeah its a black jacket...

    boingk :?: :?: :?: :?:

    Hahah.. maybe so, but I want my jacket to look schmick again :p
  6. Wouldn't using shoe polish rub off on clothes and such?
  7. Not if you buff it up properly. Would want to be a single-colour jacket though, or black could easily spread to other bits during application.
