    I personally wouldn’t, and I don’t recommend it. I avoid any chance there is of increasing the demand for such a product. Imagine if someone were wanting a leather jacket, but decided to look for one at the thrift store before going out to the store for one. They might not find one if you’ve already purchased it. It also gives others the idea that it’s okay to wear/buy. Plus, I don’t like walking around with a partial carcass on my back (ick!).

    I agree with @Styna. I don’t buy any leather but if I desperately need new boots and can’t afford a vegan alternative then I will buy from a second hand shop so I’m not directly supporting cruelty to animals (and if it’s a charity shop then at least I’m donating money to charity with my purchase!).

    If you feel like you absolutely need to buy leather… that would be the way to do it so that it didn’t contribute to the leather industry. But these days, it’s just as easy to find leather-alternatives at thrift stores, which is obviously preferable.
