Burberry Prorsum's FW10 aviator jacket is the best modern interpretation of that style.

I recently procured a Margiela 5zip leather circa year 2000 or so. Problem is that is has that "old clothes - Salvation Army" smell. Any tips on how to get that smell out without damaging the leather?

hey imhotep, do you still visit authenticforum?

Regarding your questions, I think you should wear it until your own odor becomes the primary scent . Unless the leather has a sour smell coming from the lining then just throw it away. Not worth it bro

Hang outside and air it out, maybe febreeze the inner lining. just make sure that its not a humid/damp day. That should remove some of the smell a little. Also ask a local cobbler they know their leathers .

Thanks. I've tried that hang outside trick... didn't do much. I'll give Febreeze a try

Try putting in plastic dry cleaning bag taped shut with baking soda at bottom (on a hanger obviously without touching the stuff at the bottom). You could also substitute with charcoal or coffee grounds in a pinch (will smell like coffee though). That's my standard solution to cigarette smell on clothes.

coffee smell > cigarette smell

i'd prefer have my leather jacket have a blend of tobacco/cigarette and coffee smell.

Take a large plastic tub, one that has a lid on it. Open tub. Place jacket inside, and sprinkle generously with this: http://www.amazon.com/Marineland-PA0373-Activated-40-Ounce-1134-Gram/dp/B0002566WY/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1378331807&sr=1-1&keywords=activated+carbon

Put lid on, and seal with tape. Leave for 1 week, in dark, dry area. Open tub, enjoy smell-free jacket.

you can also try inching each part of the jacket up your asshole until it both smells earthy and has a nice umber hue
