thank you sir. ive been receiving the same questions so i thought id answer them here for the benefit of the community
Hi, I noticed your thread about the dye job on the MMM 5 zip.
After pics looked fantastic.
I am thinking of buying the exact same distressed brown 5 zip in my size, and then dyeing it.
Was wondering how your jacket held up over time? Does it still look good? Does it leave marks everywhere you lean against? Does it feel tacky?
Thanks very much! Definitely wouldn't have thought about buying it in brown unless I saw your thread!
Jacket has held up well - no leather creme rubbed off. The leather glows but doesnt shine if that makes sense. I would do it again
was considering dyeing my TOJ gray lambskin moto black after Obenauf's oil made it splotchy. What did you use, this?
And just spread it with a brush? Any help is appreciated.
i used this in boar brown
its not too shiny so thats a big plus. saphir makes high quality stuff, creme doesnt rub off and the creme is free of foul/chemical smells
I think the biggest reason why this worked out so well is because the MMM jacket came pre-distressed and the leather was also a little dry so the jacket soaked up the creme evenly. I used the shoe polish dabber typically found in shoe polish kits
