Leather care
 
I have a leather jacket that I haven't worn in a few years, got it out last night and it's gone dry I guess, it feels cardboardy.

What can I use to bring it back to condition?

Leather conditioner, Gliptone was the best I've used previously. Recently bought a Motul one but haven't tried it yet.

Baby oil was recomended by a leather guy and it works great

Neatsfoot oil, or any of the Carr and Day leather conditioners. They're the bolox.

Millennial obviously :rolleyes2:

125ml straight 10W mineral oil (Castrol R for the roads fans), rubbed in with a well broken-in Brillo pad. But do remember to test on an inconspicuous part of the item first. :thumbsup2:

As Gixxer says Neatsfoot oil. Works wonders. Use it on all my leather pieces when I finish them.
