How to Care for Your Men’s Balenciaga Jacket
To ensure your Balenciaga jacket lasts for many years, clean it regularly using the correct products and procedures.
Each jacket comes with specific instructions detailing how to wash and clean them. Follow these instructions carefully, as they can vary for different materials.
With that in mind, here's some general advice:
• Balenciaga’s leather jackets have a soft, vintage feel to them. To make sure they stay that way, keep them out of the rain and direct sunlight and store them in flannel bags (if provided).
• Ready-to-wear jackets like blazers are dry clean only (unless the care label instructs otherwise).
• Avoid machine-washing leather jackets as this can dull the color and shrink them. Instead, stains can be treated with leather cleaner. Apply a small amount of product to a clean, damp cloth and gently rub over the stain using circular motions. Allow the jacket to dry before repeating to get rid of tougher stains. You should avoid the use of soapy detergents as this removes the leather's natural oils and can dry out the material.
