Hard-working, sleek, functional and stylish. Few materials have all of these resounding properties, but leather does, making it a wardrobe essential. It has been worn for centuries, and various methods for producing it have been developed over this time, resulting in a range of finishes from smooth and supple to compact and tough.
Leather tends to start with a natural grain on the surface, emphasising its authenticity. Good quality leather will break in with use, gaining extra character as you wear it.
BOSS carefully sources its leather from selected suppliers, ensuring that the animals are bred under the correct conservation conditions. Since 2016, BOSS has refrained from the use of exotic leathers. All leather is tested for its physical characteristics to ensure that the finished products, whether clothing or accessories, are of the highest quality. You can find out more on our .
Leather is utilised in a variety of products due to its versatility. These are the top reasons to purchase authentic leather goods.
Because leather is a natural material, it contains a certain amount of inbuilt stretch. This allows it to adapt to the body's movements for ultimate comfort.
The way leather is treated makes it suitable to wear against the skin often without risk of causing irritation.
Leather is inherently strong, and with the right treatment a high-quality leather product can last a lifetime, developing a beautiful patina along the way.
Natural breathability ensures maximum comfort while wearing leather items. The material is also protective, providing a barrier against the elements, such as strong winds.
