    I have a fairly new suede leather jacket that I somehow managed to get the collar stained from apparently neck/skin oil or moisturizing lotion. How can I get his out?

    You could moisturize the rest of the jacket to match.

    I hear that Nivea for Men is good.

    Take more frequent showers.

    Kidding aside -- I have a light beige RLPL leather jacket with the same issue on the collar and cuffs. It's just a natural part of a leather jacket building character and aging. You can try a bit of leather cleaner (sold in auto parts stores); I just enjoy the jacket for how it's aging.

    You can try a clean terrycloth (face cloth or inside-out clean white sock) with a bit of vinegar.
    Sponge the stain and allow to dry. Gently rub the nap with a suede brush.
