    Footwear to go with our jackets

    I’m always surprised to hear that most guys only go down 1/2 size in length and up a width in Whites. I size down 1 full size and go true width and they still have a lot of volume that I have to fill with an insole.

    Cleaning a goat leather jacket?

    agreed. I’ve gotten jackets completely wet, used isopropyl alcohol, and acetone mixtures with no negative effects. Just make sure to condition after it’s dried. Number one way to destroy leather is to let it dry out and crack from not conditioning.

    Cleaning a goat leather jacket?

    Goat is a very durable and water resistant leather compared to other animal hides. I use angelus easy cleaner. Brush on and wipe off.

    Dyed Vanson Jacket Black

    I’ve read that the USMC black has more brown undertones while the pro dye has more blue. I definitely won’t be sitting in any white chairs for awhile, just like I wouldn’t with new dark indigo jeans.

    Dyed Vanson Jacket Black

    Just used cotton balls and q-tips near the welt. I’m too lazy to use painters tape. This was my first time trying to dye anything..guess it’s just beginners luck.

    Dyed Vanson Jacket Black

    I also dyed a pair of green Benzein’s which came out not nearly as black as the jacket. I only applied 1 coat of dye to both the shoes and jacket. They should show some nice aging with the blue and green showing through. The benzein’s were a lot brighter green than the first picture portrays.

    Dyed Vanson Jacket Black

    Ton is correct. Leather is dyed completely through with the deglazer only taking away the glossy finish and a very tiny bit of the dye. I believe the deglazer is a diluted acetone mix with some additives in to help prevent the leather from drying too much.
