    if the jacket has been patched for sometime then creases already adjusting to form around it, depatching it would leave holes and probably different shade of fading, and confused creases on the area, so I would leave it alone.

    if the paint was wet and just happened I would use wide cellotape to lift off the paint, but now probably you need leather cleaner sold for cleaning/ stripping shoe polish if your leather is open pore vegtan or something with overdye, if your leather is just normal black drum dyed pigment...

    so probably the fragrance must be synthetic so it doesn't oxidate and perhaps imbued into oil so it doesn't easily evaporate and when sprayed on fabrics or porous material then it really get absorbed just like oil stain is difficult to clean then if the smell is carried by that oil it too will...

    Question on Stitching in general

    I think if fixing the whole missing stitches is too difficult or if you don't have that thread color, then on the next hole that is still intact you should secure with just single stitch and a knot until you find someone who can repair it, and also clip the loose thread or burn it and press the...

    Question on Stitching in general

    Only hand stitch wont spread, machine stitching will spread if not fixed. Depending on the area of course and friction of the leather holding the thread, if the hole is pre punched and the thread is waxed i think it will unravel pretty fast.

    New Thedi Memphis- Fit Check!

    I think the jacket fits you great, but I also think the pocket flap is too close to the armpit I imagine after some wear the outer side of the flap would get folded or distorted by constantly hitting your sleeve during driving or typing, etc.

    don't mask odor with another fragrance, it would be just get mixed into overwhelming mix of smell imo, I use a odor/ bacteria neutralizer solvent sold for dry cleaner, I don't really know the active content of it, but it works in eliminating odor, it evaporates quickly and I really have to leave...
