    I have a "vintage" leather jacket that has a crease in the vent so the last 1/2 inch flips up. It's small and not obvious but I'd like to fix it if I can. Does anyone know any way to get a crease out of leather?

    Have you tried taking it to the dry cleaners? If they don't do it, most of them have a leather specialist who does.

    You can iron leather, no problem. Set iron on low to medium heat and protect leather with tissue or brown wrapping paper while ironing. (I only had bad experiences with leather dry cleaning.)
