    Well guys, I have always wanted one and decided sod it you only live once so just get one. I have been looking for a second hand one but thought sod it and ordered a new one. Copy of an Original Irvin jacket. Does anyone know how to age or soften the leather on these? I have heard when new they are quite stiff

    Nice jacket Ben, that'll keep the wind at bay! As for the leather, best way to "soften" the coat is just natural wear over time. I have several leathers, have always owned them and find that nothing beats the natural worn effect that comes with wearing the coat regularly.

    Cool jacket, to soften the leather try Nikwax leather treatment or neatsfoot oil!...

    To age it try dragging it behind a motorbike for a few miles!..
