So I had this H&M jacket that I wasn't totally happy with in terms of overall fit and look, but the style was good and it still had some life left. I tried to sell it on B&S but after a couple of price drops, I figured I may as well try my luck washing it a la this Blackbird post. It ended up turning out way better than I expected, so I'm posting the before and after pics - hopefully I captured the change, the fit and texture really do look noticeably better up close. BEFORE: AFTER: The wash took about 15 minutes of underwater time (I used a plastic storage bin, $5 from Target). I dried it overnight on a hanger to give it a little drape, then transferred it to a towel on a tarp to dry for another day, then hung it up again for one final day to get it really dry. Then I sponged Lexol all over to condition it. Jury is still out on durability, but the leather feels healthy to me so far. Wore it for the first time today.
