Anyone else has creases on the front of the jacket

    On the other hand, I had a buddy who saw the vertical fold on my Highwayman shortly after I'd bought it who reckoned that it ruined the look of it. He said that if he'd paid 650 bob for a jacket, he'd be furious.

    Because I've known him a long time, I didn't throw him into the path of an oncoming train.

    I have a crease where my back ends and legs begin. Not sure what that's about.

    JMax,
    I can assure you that crease is quite normal. Whatever you do, please do not post any photos!

    Been trying to capture the crease in my bathroom mirror, but I lack the skills at the multi-angle, low-light bathroom selfie that another FL member has.

    I just dont like the creases on the front, i dont even like chest pockets; it messes up the look of the entire jacket -like its too tight. Elsewhere is fine.

    - condition the leather and put some weight on it hoping to unlearn the crease
    - make the leather damp, cover it with towel, iron on with low heat setting
    - wear it more so it learns new creases to overwrite old creases

    the thing is it will come back in more or less the same look and spot.
    try google cafe racer jacket with one chest pocket, then compare the crease pattern on the front left and right panel, see the difference.

    you either have to love those vertical creases or love a pair of chest pockets. only one of the two.

    My first Highwayman had spent some time as a fit jacket before it came into my possession, and as such it had traveled around the world inside a cardboard box. After wearing the jacket for a little while I noticed two pronounced horizontal creases across the back of the jacket that were the result of being folded and stuffed into a box time and time again. I tried several of the fore mentioned methods to remove the creases but nothing worked for long, those lines always came back.
    I guess I understand where you're coming from onstar. Might be time to sell this jacket and pick up a new one. I would take Navetsea's thoughtful advice into consideration as well because I think he's right about the creases and pockets.

    what about an inside chest pocket, would they help preventing thosr creases?

    no because inside pocket is on the lining not sewn on the leather panel, maybe a front yoke will do help

    I thought I recognized it. Such a great looking jacket. Sleeves are sure tight if I want to zip the cuffs, but it fits perfectly everywhere.

    Runs a bit small for 42" don't you think

    Slightly. I guess that's typical of this style. My Highwayman in 42 fits very differently!

    ^^ Speaking my language. My Aero 4-pocket CR in a 42 is S N U G which is fine for warmer weather wear, not so much past this time of December. And oddly, has developed a large crease vertically in the middle of the back.

    well, take a habit to pull forward both jacket's front panels, before leaning on the back rest of your seat.

    Here I am hoping for my leather jacket to develop creases in the front and all I've got is a clean chest and front. Damn it!

    It looks way better now, broken in but the front is still crisp and plain. I think it has to do witht he jacket being roomy in that area so there's a lot of drape.
