Sure, I recommend the 3-in-1 leather care kit by Danier. Fantastic value (cream lasts forever) and effectiveness. It brings out the best of the famous Makcage leather scent as well.

How do you pronounce Mackage?
ma-KAHge.

The name was based on one of the designer's niece's mispronounciation of the French word for make up, "maquillage" (ma-kee-AHge).

i have the "Mitch" from a few seasons ago, got it in the "camel" or whatever...it's a khaki colour

reached out to Mackage to get a recommended cleaner and went to many other cleaners that Holt Renfrew/Harry Rosen but no one would wash it without me acknolwedge that the leather trim could run and ruin the jacket....

the mackage support team just gave up and stop responding to me, and my jacket still remain uncleaned. what do YOU suggest?

Are these designed for skinny people because the models looks borderline anorexic? I'm average build myself.

That really shouldn't happen, sorry about that. I wish I could help you directly, but I don't work for corporate anymore. I'd suggest partially cleaning the jacket only with cleaning sprays and dusters. Better than nothing!

They have among the slimmest fit among all major winter jacket brands - the bombers hug you even closer than the Parajumpers gobi. I would suggest taking the same size as you would for your suit jacket - 36 for 36, etc. This trim cut is really the USP of the brand; the designers wanted to create something warm like a puffer but also sexy and flattering like a leather jacket.

I unfortunately cannot, but both Mackage and SSENSE have a Black Friday sale on right now, so go check them out!

I recently purchased a Mackage Blaine jacket from Harry Rosen Toronto. I was trying to find some info or review or something on this specific jacket online but there is literally no mention about it anywhere and which led me to think if this is an authentic mackage item or not. I'm also interested to know the fill power of this jacket and up to what temperature it can withstand.

Why would it be fake if you bought straight from Harry Rosen? No reviews doesn't mean it's fake. I have a mackage jacket and there's also no reviews but I purchased it from sporting life instead on kijiji so I know what I'm getting is not fake.

I have a Stefano that comes with black fur hood but would like to change it to non-black one.

Does Mackage sell after market fur hood for their parkas?

TIA.
