I’m not going to lie to you, men’s faux leather motorcycle jackets are very difficult to maintain, especially if you are using them often, and unlike real leather ones, which are much more durable and elastic, faux leather tend to be a little difficult to maintain in good shape, not because of the quality of the fabric itself, but because most people do not know what to do.
When you are dealing with a real leather jacket, time looks good on it, the more it looks rustic and old, the better it will appear, however with faux leather, if it’s stressed and stretched often, it’s going to look terrible and soon, it will start scratching and even looking horrible!
