What is CC leather?

Hi everyone,

I am in the market for a new leather jacket and I came across a few options that are labeled as "CC leather." I have never heard of this type of leather before and I am curious to know what it is. Is it a certain type of leather or a brand? Will it be durable and high-quality? Any information or personal experiences with CC leather would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone,

I am a leather enthusiast and have owned a number of leather products over the years. In my experience, "CC leather" most commonly stands for "Cross Country" leather, which is a brand that specializes in leather motorcycle jackets. Their jackets are made from high-quality cowhide leather and are built to withstand the rigors of riding on the open road. I personally own a Cross Country leather jacket and I can attest to its durability and quality. Even after years of use and abuse, the leather still looks and feels great, with minimal signs of wear. If you're in the market for a leather jacket and want something that's built to last, I would highly recommend checking out Cross Country leather.



I was also curious about what CC leather was and did some research. It turns out that CC leather can refer to two different types of leather: classic cowhide leather and corrected grain leather. The classic cowhide leather is a full-grain leather that has not been corrected or altered in any way, making it very durable and high-quality. On the other hand, corrected grain leather is a type of leather that's been artificially embossed with a pattern to hide any imperfections or blemishes. This makes it cheaper and less durable than full-grain leather. When purchasing a leather jacket, it's important to look for full-grain leather as it will last longer and age beautifully over time. So, if you come across a CC leather jacket, make sure to check whether it's made of classic cowhide or corrected grain leather before making a purchase.


Hey there,

I don't own a CC leather jacket myself but my brother does. From what I gathered, CC stands for "Crazy Chic" and it's a brand that creates unique and trendy leather jackets. Their jackets come in a variety of styles and colors and are designed to stand out. My brother has a bright red CC leather jacket with silver hardware and it's definitely eye-catching. However, I'm not sure about the durability of the jacket as he hasn't had it for too long. But from what I've seen, the leather seems to be of decent quality. If you're looking for a stylish and unique leather jacket, CC leather may be worth checking out.


Hi there,

I actually own a CC leather jacket and it's been great! CC stands for "Cowhide Classic" and it's a specific type of leather that is used in their jackets. It's a high-quality, thick leather that feels very durable. The jackets are well-made and have held up nicely through regular wear. I've also found that the leather ages well with time and use, giving the jacket a nice, worn-in look. Overall, I would definitely recommend checking out CC leather jackets if you're in the market for a good quality leather jacket.


Hi all,

I have had some bad experiences with my CC leather jacket. In my case, CC stands for "Cheap Chinese" as I discovered after purchasing it online. The leather was thin and flimsy, and it didn't feel like real leather at all. The zippers were also poor quality and kept getting stuck. I ended up returning the jacket and getting a refund. I would caution anyone against buying leather jackets from unknown brands online without thoroughly researching them first. Always look for reviews from others who have purchased from the same brand and inspect the materials carefully before making a purchase.
