    Sorry, I mean the cotton one, PG2G. Otherwise, you'd have to wait your turn for the defibrillator.

    Just want to bump this to warn anyone that owns this or anything like this, ignore the wash directions, do NOT take this shit to the cleaners. You will want to kill yourself and all involved, that is all.

    Now I need a new jacket.

    I think I'll send a nice letter to Rag & Bone. If the jacket isn't meant to be dry cleaned, don't say so on the tag. Jerks :/

    Damn sorry to hear that bro. I don't see how they could spray chemicals on the wax coating and not have anything happen. Maybe they only meant on the inside?

    It looks and feels like a $40 jacket, not a $400 one. The color is gone, the texture is gone... meh

    Compare this to earlier pictures

    I rather strangely find myself still wanting it.

    You consider rewaxing it?

    I have no idea how i'd go about doing that :p I'll look into it. I'm emailing them right now to see if they have any suggestions.

    I'm honestly rather shocked that you tried to dryclean a waxed jacket, but I'm really only more surprised that they actually put that on the care tag. You can hand wash one in mildly warm water with mild detergent, but harsh chemicals are just not a good idea. Check out the thread on the waxed denim jacket for an idea of how to wax cloth. It's time consuming and possibly a little dangerous, but it should help. Or, you know, you could just mail it to me. [​IMG]

    I probably should have known better, but seriously :p why put that shit on the tag if its going to do all that. I bet sticking the shit in the washing machine would have been less brutal.

    On the delicate cycle, it may well have been. Waxed cloths are very durable but in many ways very sensitive. I still have trouble believing they actually put that on a care tag. They'd better replace it or repair it for you.
