The brand name is Tana and it` s called "Style 16".It is an aerosol,so I guess any "Greenpeacers" here won`t want to use it.The guys at the Original Leather Factory recomended it and have been using it twice a season on my suit which is now 10 years old :cool .............ken.
We just got some creamy stuff from Dania Leathers when Sherry bought a dress coat there recently. It's supposed to restore the suppleness and repels water. I'm gonna use some on my racing suit really soon. It feels like I'm wearing plywood.
It's just called Dania Leather Conditioner. $12 IIRC
The "Style 16" stuff moisturizes(which then would soften)leather,it also makes it easier to remove dried bug goo,and also makes the leather somewhat water resistant.I`m sure the rub in stuff would be better at repelling water :rolleyes ...........ken.
I think you just need to work the leather back and forth to soften it up. I washed a pair of leather gloves and they were very stiff when they dried. I just worked them back and forth and they softened up like new.
You would probably need a gallon of rub-in conditioner to do your suit, since it is a lot thicker than a regular leather jacket.
