Or members of the nightwatch...still saddened by the rehashed designs. Wish Hedi was more of a risk taker.

Never seen this Rick before. It looks pretty cool from the picture, but looks like only Bergdorf stocks it?

Anyone else watch 30 rock notice Tracy Jordan rocking RO leathers in a handful of episodes?

All the leathers they wear in True Blood is ridiculous, and all the fits are so damn good!

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. 

 

I am assuming that what you got is a 654, which uses that waxy cowhide leather? Here's a pic of my 626, which uses the same leather after one soak in hot water for around 15-20 minutes. Didn't shrink much, but took off the shine quite significantly as you can see from the pictures (I had another new 626 at my shop, so I took a comparison photo of mine before selling the new one). Also included is a fit photo. My advice for this waxy cowhide leather is not to hang it to dry though, as it drapes significantly because it gets sooooo heavy with water, so make sure you dry it flat. Also, hot water sorta gelatinize the leather, which makes it really hard when it dries. Use mink oil considerably. I have since done a second soak earlier today to remove the 'drape' will post pics as it dries, but using a different method than my first soak.

 

 

Left is new, right is after one soak. Considerably duller and less shiny.

 

 

Fit (I'm wearing an S) after one soak.

That doesn't look good, loosen the belt or something.

Yeah agreed, it sorta frays out at the bottom, being a 26" long jacket. And I sorta lost weight. Hence the second soak.

I used this leather honey 

http://www.amazon.com/Leather-Honey-Conditioner-Since-Bottle/dp/B003IS3HV0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1381950792&sr=8-1&keywords=leather+honey

 

It actually removed the waxy-ness of the jacket and gave it a very nice drape.

 

My camera didnt focus for some reason but here is a fit pic, leather honey applied.

I dig that black cherry leather, but the western-esque styling isn't really my thing.

Have to say that it is rather strange.
