How To Care For Your Sam. Jackets
Cleaning instructions vary depending on what material(s) the Sam. jacket is made out of. Feather and goose down-filled jackets should be dry cleaned. However, a damp cloth can be used for spot cleaning.
If a Sam. jacket comes with a real fur lining or trim, it must be cleaned by a furrier or fur expert to prevent damage. Fur used in Sam. Jackets vary. For example, the Jenny Bomber Jacket and the Blue Millennium Matte Coat both showcase hood trims made with 100% Asiatic fur (sourced from Finland). Whereas, the Women’s Mackenzie Jacket boasts100% natural lamb shearling from Italy.
In some cases, the fur lining is permanent, and in others, the fur lining is detachable. Either way, the fur must be cleaned by an expert.
