    Unrelated: How do you store your leathers for winter? I don't want to hang them because some are too heavy to be hang for an extended period of time. I don't want to stack them because it might leave creases. I'm kind of puzzled. First world problems.

    isnt that the time you should be whipping them out?
    LOL

    Anyways, maybe you roll them and put in a garment bag. I think rolling is better than folding as it helps to lessen the creasing?

    Yeah it was -5C yseterday (that's 23F for my ameri-friends ;)) and it was snowing, and it only gets worse from here. My shearling is starting to feel cold. If you have a heated leather jacket, hit me up ;)

    Thanks for the rolling suggestion. That's how I pack suitcases for the same reason, I think it sounds like a winning strategy. Will report back in April. Ha. Thanks!

    I just picked up a pair of the Rick Owens Tractor Dunks and I have been having some toruble breaking them in. I believe the leather on the boot is leather (read it was cow or horse I believe?)and I looked online and saw some people recommending you use a hair dryer to soften the problematic spots. Would you guys recommend this? Just afraid to irrepraibly damage the leather or should i just tough it out?

    Personally, I wouldn’t try that. The leather might become too dry and start to crack. Just give it some more time or maybe try some leather-stretching spray if they don’t soften up.

    I did that to my horse leather 10Sei0otto sneakers. They were a bit too narrow. Didnt worked out. But didnt do any damage either. Took them to a cobbler to stretch them.

    Hey man thank you so much for your reply. Is there a specific leather-stretching spray you recommend?

    Vintage stores around me really suck so I'm looking towards online sellers like ebay to start building up my collection. Sorry if this is the wrong thread, but what tips do you guys have for buying online? I'm getting my measurements taken at some point but aside from that, anything in particular I should do or look at before buying online?

    For me if it is not a new piece best way is to ask the size of the seller. How tall is he and how much the person weights.
    Some sites has the model height and weight listed along with the size of the garment they are wearing which helps a lot.

    The sizing help thread on this of forum can be a good source of information: http://www.stylezeitgeist.com/forums...36-Sizing-help

    Search for designers, if pieces stay true to size over different collections for example. Many general questions like that have already been answered.

    What are your hints for a functional, slim-fitting yet stylish winter jacket? Should be short, not a coat.

    I am looking for something combining the functionality of, say an Arc'teryx jacket with the aesthetic of e.g. Devoa or Stone Island x Shadow Project. So minimalist functional-ish

    P you looking for something insulated or just an all-weather jacket?

    I have a TVA hooded down jacket from a few seasons ago that's perfect for very cold winter weather, Fascinate did a special bespoke edition of it this F/W.

    For an all-weather jacket the 11 by BBS J2C has been serving me well here in rainy Seattle, and if you go TTS there's plenty of room underneath to layer another jacket and sweater.

    I have a pair of Ann leather boots that I would like to dye black. What is a good product?

    Those are both excellent recommendations, thanks. Aesthetically, I would prefer something alike the 11 by BBS jacket - but ideally more suited for autumn / winter than being a true all season jacket (luckily, winters dont get too cold in Germany). So if anyone has something similar in mind (or sells a similar jacket to fit a Sz.L within EU) shoot ahead.

    Saphir dyes are very good products.
    Blue base though. Depending on the initial color of your leather, you might have to dye a few more times to avoid dark shades of blue.

    Do i need to use their decapant product to remove some of the shine? It's ann d riding boots for reference.

    God, I was hoping it was possible to just soak them for 48 hours...

    I use acetone, but one might consider the product too abrasive for leather goods. So yes, you can use their decapant.

    Thanks for answering my stupid questions. Should have known Saphir had this stuff!
