    IRonheart M-51 thoughts on weather proofing

    Years ago I was taking slow speed police course in the Detroit area. The last 2 days it was lightly snowing and sleeting. I went to a Walmart type store and got a can of waterproofing which I sprayed on the shoulders and back of the leather jacket. I stayed dry, and there was no residue on the...

    Why are some brill bros g-1 labels painted black?

    Never seen nor heard that theory. Not saying it is incorrect but that I have never seen it.

    Questions About the United States Navy Peacoat

    Please disregard that post. I just looked at the Schott website again and noticed several discrepancies in the description of the 740N. Over the years I have noticed so many discrepancies, and omissions, in the Schott description of its civilian "peacoats," that I no longer trust anything the...

    Why are some brill bros g-1 labels painted black?

    Is the label painted black or is that the color of the fabric that the text is on?

    Brown Leather Jacket Collar Question - How to Keep it from Getting Nasty?

    Having a dark collar on a light colored leather jacket is just a cost of doing business. What you might try is an actual leather cleaner rather than a conditioner. I have been using Lexol cleaner on horse tack for 35 years with good results. It is designed to get salt and oils out of the...

    Do these leather gloves look like a poor fit?

    Yes, extra space at the tips of the fingers. Guess I didn't phrase that very well.

    Do these leather gloves look like a poor fit?

    I can't really tell much from the photos, but if there is any overlap on the fingers or the thumb, they don't fit.

    Embroidery Removal

    And how do you propose to remove the logo without leaving thousands of stitch holes in the jacket?

    Modern codet quality?

    What type of insulation is inside the lining? I don't think any company is making a jacket shell of 26 or 28 oz. wool these days. To get a new wool jacket that is warm, it has to be insulated.

    Help! Fake Levi’s Vintage Clothing 501?

    I thought about that and then realized I didn't know if it was a label from a jacket or a pair of jeans. Probably jeans. I think I will leave it here for now, subject to moving later.

    Good to hear from a chemist on this subject. As the perfume compounds are volatile, they should evaporate in the warm sunlight. I'm really surprised the ozone generator didn't do the job on the cologne odor. Maybe try it again in a smaller space and leave it on longer. The one Marc has is...

    Thanks, Marc. I never thought of that. What a terrible idea.

    That is disheartening to hear the ozone generator doesn't work on cologne odor. When it got the smoke smell out of my kitchen, I thought it would de–deodorize anything. As an aside, how does a jacket pickup the smell of cologne? Wouldn't it have to be applied directly to the jacket?

    Yes, I think a small bathroom or a closet would be the best bet for one this small.

    The odor is in the lining as well as the leather shell. Don't waste your time worrying with the shell. I didn't have an ionizer machine either, and then I got one. I had a minor kitchen fire that left an awful smoke odor. A few minutes with the ionizer took care of it. I have since used it...

    Waterproofing an N1 jacket

    As @Aloysius said above, it is probably water resistant as is. The Navy normally has top of the line stuff, usually at the expense of the Marine Corps. May be just fine the way it is.

    Freewheelers Wool Wigwam Jacket

    Love that Wigwam. For me, this will be another wool winter. As to the question of the weight, it is probably a 28 oz. weight. That is heavy for a jacket. A vintage peacoat has the heaviest wool possible, and that is 32 oz.

    Anyone else still waiting for jacket weather ?

    We haven't had a heat wave, but I am ready for it to cool off so I can start wearing some of my jackets again.
