I have a black leather jacket that squeaks every time I move. Any advice on how to make it stop or do I need to just break it in? I've worn it sporadically for a couple of years and it hasn't gotten any better.

Are Cole-Haans really that bad? Obviously they don't compare to the Ed Greens, Lobbs, Vass, etc.. I'm almost embarassed to say CHs are the nicest shoes I've owned. However, I just can't see myself spending over $200 for a pair of shoes, no matter how beautiful and well-made they are. As a...
