Possibly of interest: a place that's specializes in leather repair and cleaning

https://www.withoutatrace.com/

They also do invisible mending, which is a kind of high-end-(ish) repair work on tailored clothing. So maybe they're good with leather as well.

If someone uses them, report back and let us know how it went.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I live in Chicago and have some need for leather work, will probably try them after the summer passes and it's cool enough to wear leather again.

Do you guys condition your leather jackets often? I've had a Lewis Leathers jacket for about 6 months now and I think it's starting to feel a little less supple.

6 months seems a little soon. TBH, I've had leather goods that have been fine for like 5-10 years without any conditioning. Shoes get conditioned maybe once a year. I've only conditioned old, vintage leather jackets I've brought home. New ones haven't been conditioned in the last five years, at least.

Please make a distinction before buying and dont get carried away by the tag Real or Genuine Leather. I've came across Lewis jackets which are made of PU leather rather than the real leather.

Won't that entirely depend on the condition?

It's this one

Also curious because I almost jumped on that one on eBay back when it was still listed. I take it got put up elsewhere, not sold?

Posting this as a heads up to other users selling jackets (really any items for that matter),

 

just went through a terrible grailed transaction as a seller that resulted in me losing ~$1000.

 

I recently sold off a brand new forest green Vanson dare devil jacket that fit me too small. Once the jacket arrived to buyer, I received an email a couple days later saying that the jacket was scratched and he wanted a $150 refund.

 

I assumed there must have been a small scuff or something super minor since I knew the jacket had never been worn and I gave it a close inspection when I first bought it. I told him to send me some photos of the damage so I could file a claim with the post office, then I would work with him on a refund.

 

He refused to send me any photos and immediately opened a paypal claim. I figured, alright this is fine, I will upload my pre-shipment photos that show the jacket in new condition then work through paypal to come to a conclusion

 

About 3 weeks later, paypal comes to a resolution and opts to refund the buyer and return the jacket. All good with me as I expected the jacket to just have a minor scuff or something small (not sure why this guy kept refusing to send me any photos). 

 

just received the jacket back today, and below are the pre shipment vs post shipment photos.

 

 

 

At this point, there really isn't much saving the jacket. This cut goes damn near through all the leather. It looks as if someone got excited opening the box and sliced right through it, then made some attempt to buff or sand it out. Never really seen anything like it. 

 

Unfortunately, paypal doesn't really seem to give a shit about its returned condition. The buyer claims that when he received the jacket initially, it was in good packaging and doesn't feel that this damage was caused during shipping. He insisted that I sold it to him with this cut and never mentioned it (like this would somehow go unnoticed). 

 

I get the feeling that this damage was either accidentally done by the buyer or intentionally done in order to receive a refund on a purchase he no longer wanted. Regardless, I feel that paypal offers about zero support to a seller in a situation such as this. 

 

To make matters worse, this was the one jacket I didn't get shipping insurance on because the damn mail guy that day couldn't figure out how to add it for an international shipment and he didn't have anyone else there to help him. 

 

all in all, generally a pretty shitty situation. I Contacted paypal today immediately after seeing the jacket and they are supposed to keep the claim open and contact me again for me information, but I don't really see them going my way on this.

That sucks dude, I'd try escalating it with PayPal. Contact Grailed also and see if there's anything they can do. I'd think with the fees now they have some sort of obligation to help you out.

 

At the very least get that guy blacklisted.

Yeah that sounds pretty typical for paypal/ebay. Have you tried to get in touch with grailled?

Sucks. Reminds me of the guys who say 'item never recieved' etc when you don't get confirmation
