    Picked this up via buyee for pretty cheap. I knew it had a red stain in a prominent area and was hoping I could minimize, but alas no good. It's also a full size too small for me. So after multiple attempts to wash, scrub, scrape, etc. I got creative. In person it looks amazing. Like 10 shades of brown. Can still see the red, but just looks like part of the color scheme. Now I really wish it would fit me. Going to be on the hunt for a size 42 so I can repeat the process. Let me know if anyone interested in this one. Otherwise going to keep for the kiddos.

    You can burn off those loose fibers with a lighter. That might sound radical but it works really well. Just make sure to stay clear of the sherpa lining :)

    Here's a before - after

    Nice tip. I'm still brushing it to get the fluffy nap back and got most of it. But theres a few stubborn loose fibers here and there. I'll give a try. I might hit the red with some brown dye directly but tbh, it's not bad as is.

    I wish I could capture the color better, it's almost like shiny hyena coat lol. I swear it would be my top 3 fav jacket.

    The measurement was right on the edge, but with the lining, I need another .5 inch everywhere. Bummer. I'll still get some wears on it without closing it. My wife refused to let me leave the house with it lol. Said it was too short and tight. But I was wearing long tshirt, so it did look off.

    Tag size 40
    Ptp 21.25
    Shoulder 18.5
    Back 23.5
    Sleeve 23

    Btw, it's a Schott rancher tag. Cant tell how old. I'd say at least 15 years.

    Edit. Actually it's "Western" tag not rancher. Think these are older which makes sense. If it's more vintage size, no wonder didnt fit. I can wear 38 on some modern schotts lol.

    I can see the red stain in the first two pics, but not in the subsequent ones. Maybe the stain is hidden by the shadows on the jacket?

    You did a good job on that jacket.

    Thanks. they're still there, but obviously with the darker brown and the highlights and various shades of brown, it blends more, and looks like more of the bigger vision. If you're looking straight at it and know what to look for, you'll spot them. But yeah, at least it's wearable now (well not for me too small LOL) without it being a topic of conversation like "yo, what the heck is on your jacket". Looks like he had a permanent marker in his chest pocket that exploded.
