Before: After: Boar Brown
You must be really proud
I'll be first to say, from the poor lit photos, that the before after is good from initial look.
meh. Nothing to be proud about, just clothes. No one is gonna care or give a shit anyways. But I do like how it turned out. ill take some photos in the sunlight. shitty lighting in my apt
I still prefer it black, but I gotta say it's a pretty outrageous experience. Y'ballin'.
does the polish get all over the place?
not in the slightest. the leather literally just soaked it up. I even poured water on it and tried to wipe it off and almost nothing came off. Im sure the color is now much more engrained into the jacket just 12 hours after the procedure
it seems that the distressing was a product of surface contact. when they removed the fine top layer of leather, it exposed the surface to the elements. the leather felt dry. took on the shoe cream very well.
I think it looks much better in the after.
thanks man. never had any issue with the leather cream coming off either
Was the jacket sold distressed before or did a previous owner wash it?
It came distressed
Nice job NAMOR. I care!
thank you sir. ive been receiving the same questions so i thought id answer them here for the benefit of the community
Jacket has held up well - no leather creme rubbed off. The leather glows but doesnt shine if that makes sense. I would do it again
i used this in boar brown
its not too shiny so thats a big plus. saphir makes high quality stuff, creme doesnt rub off and the creme is free of foul/chemical smells
I think the biggest reason why this worked out so well is because the MMM jacket came pre-distressed and the leather was also a little dry so the jacket soaked up the creme evenly. I used the shoe polish dabber typically found in shoe polish kits
Thanks Namor. Great thread
