Dear Loungers, I'm looking for advice around something that's happening to my LL Star Lightning Horsehide. Please let me know if you faced this situation in the past and if you have any idea how I could fix this. Some context, I bought the jacket around a month ago on the LL ebay store. I had to have it tailored as the sleeves were too long and used it 4 times since then on the commute between work and home. At home it was stored in a clean room, nowhere near a source of heat, in a pet free, smoke free environment. I'm from Paris so no tropical heat outside. The problem, after my last wear I noticed some color is litterally peeling off in the armpit area (see photos attached). I don't know what caused this (my aero jackets are fine). I inspected the leather and it doesn't show any scars or scuffs. Analyszing what's coming off makes me think that somehow the color coat and the shiny finish coat are detaching from the leather (as when you grab this part you can feel it's sort of plastic-y and is not actual leather coming off) but why so fast? and why so much ? What I did so far? I emailed LL and I took the jacket to a leather repair shop. I haven't heard back from LL yet and guys from the store told me they've never seen anything like this and that this was not normal. They confirmed the leather underneath was fine and this wasn't due to a shock or excessive rubbing and were reluctant to take the jacket as they don't know how to fix this. They could try and tint the leather again but then inspecting the jacket in details shows that this is happening all around it but with far less severity that the armpit situation meaning it would require a full retan and they didn't see any easy way to take out cleanly all the coating that's coming off. At the moment I'm still waiting for a response from LL but I'm at a loss here. Should I try other shops and have the jacket completly recolored ? Is it even fixable ? If you ever experienced something like this please let me know as any advice is welcomed at this stage. Thanks for having read through this and for your help.
