Today is the second time I’ve heard the term “red rot” in a discussion regarding a vintage jacket. What exactly is it? Can it spread to other jackets? And how can we avoid or fix it? What other issues are there with vintage jackets that should be avoided or could lead to costly repairs? Is it worth repairing/ restoring an old jacket? When is distressed actually a write off? I would love to hear the thoughts of or members on what situations would push you to fix a jacket vs. giving up the ghost.
