Hi All,

Hope you've been keeping well.

I'm on the ebay hunt again and have come across this Schott 674 for a reasonable price:

Unfortunately, it's heavily creased. They mention it will need "sorting out" in the description, but what is the best way to get rid of creases in a leather jacket? Here's a full image for reference:

Get it wet and then let it dry flat on a drying rack with a towel between the rack and the jacket.
When the jacket is 90% dry wear it and let it dry fully on on you.

This is my drying setup:

Have we seen you wearing that lace shirt jacket? I don't recall now.

Thanks for the tip!

It's a bit much, but it really feels great on the bike.
It is only half lined, and the leather is really thick and supple, makes you feel like you are riding without a leather jacket.
I really like riding with it in summer.

Ok not to get off topic but what kind of bike do you ride? It's probably somewhere on here but just curious.

I love the gold rims on a GS.

I'm sorely tempted to get the rims on my little Trumpet refurbed in gold when I do some things to it over the winter.
