Yes it is a thrifted stone coloured jacket that definitely didn't smell. It's one of the checks I do when buying. I hate even passive smoking! It was bought some months ago and I have been waiting for the warmer months before wearing it out. IF...it had smelled already it would have made other jackets in my wardrobe smell too, it was that strong. Not the case here.
As it stands, a good airing has removed most of the strong odour.
Ps. I found the thread subscription.
