    I bought a hoodie in FL and the tag on it says "dry clean only". The jacket is made out of a soft material and has leather crosses sewn onto it. I went to two different dry cleaners, both said that they both refuse to clean it because they will ruin the leather. The leather will shrink reguardless of warm, or cold water and it cant be washed. One of the guys said that the tag saying "dry clean only" was put on before the leather was put on.

    Any ideas on how to clean it?

    Sure its genuine leather? Might be imitation leather, which in turn one can possibly dry clean.

    I have no idea, sorry, never had to have anything leather cleaned. Maybe streetwear might be more imformative?
    Just search for your nearest dry cleaners that do leather online, and call up/go and ask.

    I went to two, both said they cant do it. One even reccomeneded not getting it cleaned... Im guessing its genuine leather considering i paid about 600$ for th hoodie.
