Not sure if this is the right place to post, I am new to the forum and this is my second thread.
I bought a used Polo A-2 style brown leather bomber jacket that I am very happy with except that it has a pretty dark ring around the collar. I have tried cleaning it myself using dove men care face soap and it did seem like a lot of oil came off onto the rag but it still doesn't look much better so I took it to a leather specialist that got really good reviews online and the guy told me it won't come out.
Has anyone had success?
Also what do you think about having shearling sewn onto the collar? Has anyone had that done? Is that something you could have done?
I appreciate any advice
