    The MF® “JOHNNY” Campus Jacket does not require any type of pre-treatment or conditioning and is ready to wear as-is. This garment is cut quite slim but is considered true-to-size.


    I wear a slim-fitting size 38 in the “JOHNNY” Campus Jacket, my usual size in mfsc jackets. Keep in mind that we are referring to a classic old-school type fit, not a contemporary streetwear silhouette.


    Please refer to approximate measurement in chart below.

  • CARE


    We recommend you leave you CAMPUS as-is and just wear it. Because of its original light natural color that will darken over time, it is prone to get soiled, water marked etc… This is part of the tough life of a leather jacket, your second skin.

    Just for info, Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap is used by some pro tack shops to clean leather, at your own risk. Pecard also offers quality leather dressing. Please be aware that almost anything applied to light colored leather will alter its color. What ‘works’ on boots is not what you put on a saddle (if you want to stay on it), and definitely not made for clothing. Seek the help of a professional leather cleaner should staining occur that you cannot live with.
