Do it. You'll immediately realize you should've ordered one in the beginning (And by one, I mean five). biggrin.gif

It's way too dark outside now, and I don't want indoor pics for this beauty. Tomorrow afternoon I'll try to get some good ones. Luckily, since I'm home, I have the option to use my dad's Nikon dslr or my s95, whichever will do the peacoat justice.

(I hate mirror pics)

I was secretly hoping that the MDR wouldn't work for you reedo, and that you'd sell to me :P Too bad it looks awesome

Hahaha I totally think like this about other forum members purchases too. I doubt I'll ever give this bad boy up.

Now that I've settled on my size, if Drew ever gets any more whiskey leather in, think I'll buy a medium DR

I actually didn't, but I'm really happy it came that way as I usually only zip my jacket halfway unless it's necessary. I used to wear my MA-1 half zipped, but it looked like it would be fully zipped from far away because the placket was full length.

Anyone order a new fishtail? I'm wondering if I should get one or just wait to see what new stuff comes along this spring with the new fabrics. I think I'd rather have a field jacket or something similar instead of a parka since it hardly dips below 50 here, and even that's not really cold.

Lolol, you are going on a frenzy since we last met up. You're going to love it. From what I remember, I think it will mesh with your style nicely.

So no tracking code today means no jacket in time for Christmas, right? frown.gif

As it seems that first VTG jackets are being shipped now, would you have some last minute advice before we start messing up our jackets?
I'm personally pretty keen to hear more about the soaking process.
Why did you do it? To shape the collar?
Would you do it again?
Any new oil/wax products you have tried on your jacket?

Thread Starter 
All I did to the VTG's was this - soaking is unnecessary IMO, unless you want to mold the collar. It won't discolor the jacket if you just soak a portion of the jacket or whatever either, so do as you want with water.

Oils and stuff though - exercise caution, and err on the side of 'nude' rather than trying to oil it down within an inch of it's life, I've learned. Let the leather take on an honest color and patina as you go. It will not soak oil uniformly, and just get blotchy if you go too hard, so if you're gonna condition it, do so very lightly, wipe off excess from soaking in, and then let it dry to naturally mellow a bit too. I used regular body lotion, vegetable oil, and then neatsfoot oil. The oils are heavy and can cause splotching if you use too much. The splotches will wear out over time if you do mess up, but yeah, just oil and tan very slowly and don't try to rush it along too much, be conservative.
