Leather trimmed seats

Recommended Posts

Just EXACTLY what part(s) the seats are the "trim" that is leather ?  They used to have "leather seating surfaces", so I expect this is much less.

Hi tow. This refers to only the part of the seats that our bodies touch.

 

Good luck.

Hi tow. Yes, but the "OLD definition !" still applies. For marketing purposes, it is now called "leather trimmed" instead of "leather seating surfaces". That is the correct information.

 

Automotive manufacturers decided it sounds more upscale, for whatever their reasons.

 

Good luck.

I believe in the upholstery world, "trim" is what the call "piping" !

Hi theoldwizard1. The information I provided is correct. To paraphrase an old saying...Yes, all "piping" is trim, but not all trim is "piping". "Piping" is what they call "piping". Trim simply means part of something, as in not all. Leather trimmed seats refers to the parts of the seats that touch the body are leather. The rest (sides, rear face, map pockets, etc.) is not. 

 

This subject has been discussed often in the past. Including this thread located here, begun by member "theoldwizard" :

 

"Leather trimmed seats" is just the newer marketing speak for "leather seating surfaces", as was discussed back in 2016.

 

Good luck.

Hi theoldwizard1. Additionally, since I am relatively sure you will not believe me alone, and to avoid a needlessly drawn out discussion, you can peruse these links: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=ford+leather+trimmed+seating+surfaces

 

As with most information on the Internet, you will need to sift through the "opinions" and chaff to find the informative articles.

 

Good luck.

An upholstery shop is also referred  to as a trim shop. Trim is just another term applied to upholstery. So, you could say leather upholstered seats
