Skidmore’s Update It’s been a few weeks (I got impatient and coated the sleeve again- so the clock started over), and I’m still happy with Skidmore’s on the arm of the deerskin jacket! I also used it with mixed results on my green Brooks. The underside piece of the sleeves and sleeve gussets are still much softer than they had been, but the rest of the jacket feels mostly the same as it did a couple of weeks ago before the treatment. Today, I decided to do a re-boot on the deerskin jacket! I wiped down the whole thing with Reno-mat to get rid of the waxy finish left by Tenderly (again- mixed results: i did get lots of wax on the rag, but it didn’t all come off). Then I treated the whole jacket with lots of Skidmore’s and put it in my hot car out of the sun to soak in. In 2 hours the conditioner had evaporated, and the jacket was dry again, and a bit crunchy I still believe that letting it soak in over a couple of weeks works remarkably better. So, I slathered the jacket up again and put it back in the closet... more to come in October, but I think it will be better.
