    That's crazy. Maybe the cleaners really did just destroy it, but it felt awful and the stitching was terrible. Practically coming apart.

    Thanks everyone

    Designer brand's didn't always put out great stuff in the past. Pierre Cardin for example.....

    Hey guys. Anyone have a suggestion for how to get a dusty, old smell out of a vintage leather jacket? Recently bought a vintage leather that I really like, but it has a sort of vintage-shop smell. I know about the diluted vodka and vinegar tricks. Will give that a shot this weekend, but does anyone have any other suggestions?

    (cc'ing @SpooPoker since he may know)
