6 Elements of Luxury Leather Men's Accessories That Define Greatness
The difference between generic leather men’s accessories and luxury leather men’s accessories is all in the detail. Anyone can slap two pieces of leather together, stitch it together with a broken-down sewing machine and call it a great product. So, to ensure you’re getting all the bang for your buck instead of breaking your bank for something that’s supposed to be luxury fashion, as well as rough, tough luxury goods that can withstand your adrenaline rushes, you need to know what to look for.
Basic vs. Exotic Leather
Basic leather accessories are pricier than cotton, polyester or other mediocre materials. Luxury leather accessories for men are more expensive than generic leather accessories mainly due to the type of leather used. So, the first thing you want to look at is the type of leather used to craft your small leather goods. Otherwise, you could be paying luxury prices for non-luxury leather.
At ColdFire, we use both full grain and aniline kangaroo leather to ensure optimal quality and luxury. Kangaroo leather is known for being thicker than other alternatives, with greater tensile strength and retention of strength making it perfect for those wild times you have out with the guys. It’s also lighter than other leather options. So, whether you’re flying down the highway on your motorcycle or jumping out of a plane, kangaroo leather has you covered.
The Details of the Luxury Leather
The way the leather is produced and decorated are also key differences between generic leather accessories and luxury leather accessories. Some leather companies use paints and insoluble pigments that deteriorates the natural surface of the leather, which ultimately strips the luxury and authentic elements right out of the material.
Full-grain kangaroo leather is often hailed as being the best quality leather available, as the leather hasn’t been changed. All of the natural marks are left as is, which allows for a luxurious look and feel, as well as optimal strength and durability.
Aniline kangaroo leather is dyed exclusively with soluble dyes. In other words, we make sure the genuine accents of the leather are preserved even when the hide is changed to a different colour.
Now, the way in which the luxury accessories are put together is just as important as the materials used. After all, you can have a Tomahawk but if it’s put together with duct tape, it’s far from luxurious. So, craftsmanship is a huge component that should never be overlooked.
ColdFire luxury goods for men uses Dyneema® - a durable, tough and extremely versatile fiber that is recognized for being 15 times stronger than steel. It’s made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, patented processing technology, heating, elongating and cooling of the fibers to provide high-performance, durable craftsmanship.
As we said earlier, the luxury of leather can be found in the details. Always look at the details.
RFID Data Armor Foil
When shopping luxury leather goods, security is important. With all these scammers running around scanning people’s credit cards through their back pocket, you want leather goods, such as leather wallets and cold holders to have some technology infused into the leather.
Our small luxury leather accessories, particularly the wallets and card holders have RFID Data Armor Foil. Put simply, it’s a technology that blocks signals from being transmitted to and from RFID chips. In other words, no one is stealing your credit card information via your ColdFire wallet.
You can have a collection of leather accessories for men, but if they aren’t designed with optimal durability in mind, you’ll be replacing them more often than you use them. Add in the fact that you likely pay a pretty penny for your luxury leather goods, and you could end up running your bank account dry. So, durability is a huge factor that should never be underestimated.
Yes, leather is a highly durable material but not all leather goods are created equal. To ensure intense, tough and rough durability that can withstand your adrenaline-pumping, thrill-seeking adventures, you want every part of your luxury leather accessories to be designed with durable materials.
Coldfire leather goods combine the toughness of kangaroo leather with military grade threads, CX6 carbon fiber, and aircraft grade titanium to ensure one hell of an experience with many more to come. These attributes are tough, intense, strong and surprisingly, incredibly lightweight.
As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. If you come across a cheap leather product that’s claiming to be “luxurious”, the product is likely to be cheaper than the numbers on its price tag. Luxury costs – it doesn’t have to break the bank but it shouldn’t be cheap either.
Luxury leather men’s accessories aren’t just about genuine leather or leather goods that look great. It’s about raw, authentic style infused with high quality craftsmanship, durability, toughness and high-tech elements.
While we can’t speak for other companies, we can give you the fine details of ColdFire leather accessories for men to give you confidence in your purchases. You can also use this as your go-to guide when shopping other leather statements.
So, whether you’re updating your wardrobe with fine luxury goods for men or are looking to fill your closet with leather statements, these are the dapper elements that separate generic from greatness.
