ok so i picked up this eastman d pocket a while back for $300 and was wondering what you guys thought about it and if anyone knows when its from. this is my first “”””serious”””” leather jacket (i know $300 is chump change) eastman is a good brand from what i’ve heard but im kinda disappointed in the quality of the leather. it has a really thick paint like finish on it. its nice leather underneath, i can tell because some places the finish has worn off and the leather their has a wonderful feel. anyway here are some pics

Maybe it could use a good conditioner, I use several different brands as it’s a personal preference. But, overall a great jacket from a high end maker.

It's a good buy but you are disappointed in the leather cos it has worn out a bit in some areas? What were you expecting and are you wanting it to be newish?

If you want to "restore" the leather, some shampoo, maybe some dye and a good layer of conditioner will keep it going to years more.
