einstine just wear it instead - it'll dull down



that AP jacket is too busy - the zipper flaps frown.gif. the one Ink is selling is a lot cooler

edit: oh jeez it's the same one - worse lighting, didn't notice!

Im hopping I will be able to make it like this. Removing the shine of leather jackets seem to be pretty common on the web, lots of DIY guides out there. Ill post pictures of it them, not sure when ill go about doing it.

Don't do it einstine.

Why not do it?

Just research a bit and buy the appropriate products.

I took my 5-zip to a cobbler to get it vibrammed. Turned out really well. I'll post pics later.

i wasn't disagreeing with you, i was telling everyone about the successful vibram job on my 5-zip. now i can roll down hills and stop muggings-in-progress without scuffing the calfskin. i recommend it.

Fuck yeah. Love the shoulders.

UPDATE: Its seems to be a no go turning my schott matte black. I dont know what kind of protective coating they use but its strong.

 

I tried rubbing alcohol first, then dish soap and water, nothing. Then I gambled on the little hanger tag piece of leather on the inside of the jacket with my sisters 100% acetone for nails that didnt even do anything! 

 

This is a good thing I guess I do like matte leather, but it has its downfalls of looking either fake or not even like a leather jacket and just a coat look to it. So the downfalls of the shine is practically nothing especially since it protects it that much.
