    Wear it. A lot. Although I've never resorted to it, some people sleep in their jackets for a week or two. I am not sure there are any shortcuts, and I am still breaking in a Vanson motorcycle jacket that I bought last summer..

    Thanks. Failed to consider the sleeping option but when I think about the suits I've rumpled by nodding off in them it makes sense:)
    Thanks for writing

    Shovel snow in it. Do yard chores. Essentially, anything that is manual labor but you are not actually going to get slashed.

    If it's a horsehid jacket, just throw it in the washer, and the wear it around a bit when it is still damp. Of course, the shoveling snow is a bit more honest.
