Keep in mind that there is always variation in practices between manufacturers owing to desired or expected garment performance. In this case, the vest (being a split suede) is a 2 oz garment weight leather -which isn’t noted for keeping its shape without a little assistance. Hence the fusible. And yes of course you can press leather, don’t fret so much over it. At close are links that provide back story should you need that but suffice to say, I’ve become partial to knit nylon tricot fusible. It sets quickly (no, we don’t hold the iron down for a count of x) and neatly with a bit of steam. I also fuse without a pressing cloth but then my iron has a teflon (or is it silicone?) shoe so nothing sticks to it.
