    Naked Leather - Handcrafted in the USA!

    Naked leather is a soft leather with no finishes added to give it that broken in feel. If you notice some fading after years of use, we recommend applying Sheps Neatslene Harness Oil Dark to the outer shell. This product will bring back the same softness and black color as it was at the time of purchase. When applying this oil please take care to NOT get any on your patches or the inner lining. A little bit goes a long way with this oil. Put a very small amount of oil on a clean, small, non-abrasive sponge or lintless cloth and let the oil soak in. Then go over the whole outer shell of the chaps. That should take care of all fading and add moisture back giving you that soft leather feel again. Once you have applied the oil to your garment, hang to dry for about the next 4-5 hours to let the oil absorb into the leather.

    Naked Leather - Handcrafted in the USA!

    This style leather has the same feel as the unfinished leather, but during the final tanning process it is finished in a way that gives it the classic look of a 1950’s motorcycle jacket. Over years of use, this will fade slightly to reveal the natural patina of the leather. Do not apply any oils or cleaners. This leather is perfect just the way it is. To remove dirt and road grime just use a damp cloth with warm water and no additives. Let air dry.
