^lovely! what are those white stitches at the corners of the patch? I don't know Samurai that well- are they always there? Left over from a paper flasher? Or are they from a repair?

.
it's a personalized [added-on] feature_ most of my jeans have them. it started as a means to reinforce a Denime patch [about to fall off] & then it became a ritual before they queue in for rotation.

does anybody use obenaufs on their leather patches before the hot soak so it repels the water to prevent shrinking/cracking?

me too. because from my observation so far, mustang paste is a good care product but don't really change the color, so the leather can still age naturally

Gorgeous patch - ostrich leather - amazing
My pair due in the post have a navy alligator patch so I agree totally - SO SO GOOD

Do exotic leathers need treating to keep them looking that great?

+1 to the use of Obenauf's on patches. I always use a really thin coating on patches after a soak or wash.

Thanks a lot for the advice because I wouldn't want to ruin the patch.

They're due next week but I won't be washing them for a while.

Hey guys, I am a complete newb to leather care and have been rocking brands without leather patches for a while now, but I just got some Flat Head BSP's and want to do right by the leather patch. That said, how can I go from the leather patch as it comes 

se05bsp_01_02.jpg

 

to something more like this

1477599805_fa610b61f2.jpg

 

I understand some of this has to do with just wearing and breaking in. But should I be using polish to darken? What specific products should I be investing in? Obenauf's has been mentioned specifically a few times in the thread.  But which product? Just the Obenauf's Oil? Obenauf's Heavy LP? I'd appreciate if those that know could break off a newb with some knowledge.

Obenauf's heavy duty LP is a great product to preserve and protect but it will not darken your patch to that degree.  Only thing that will do that is time.  basically, be patient.

You can't compare the Samurai and FH patch. Most patches shown on this very page are made out of different types of leather and age differently. A general rule is, that the leather will darken (wether you oil or not, but adding  Paste or oil will add to the darkness). Oiling is only helpful to prevent leather from cracking after washing or soaking, but is not obligatory. Just enjoy the time while you can read the printing, I have enough jeans that just have a dark piece of bacon on their back And if you wonder which products have which effects - see here:http://www.ironheart...hp?topic=1977.0
