    Advice regarding vintage tan leather jacket

    Gents

    I am looking for your advice. I recently bought a vintage tan leather bomber jacket on a bit of an impulse, and now I'm not sure whether to keep it, or whether it's just a bit much. Here are some links to it. What do you reckon? Is it a keeper? And if so, how would you style it?

    Also, it smells quite strongly of smoke, so if I do keep it, does anyone have any tips for getting rid of this?

    If I return it, I will have to do so in the next few days, so quick replies would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I think it looks brilliant! A perfect all round jacket, that works with pretty much anything.

    I can see how the smoke smell would put you off. I'd take it to a dry cleaner and ask what can be done about it. I'm sure they have treatments for it.

    Nice find!

    I like it, it seriously looks like the Steve McQueen special edition Triumph Leather jacket.

    Leave it outside on the washing line or something if you can, that should help get rid of a lot of the smell, certainly in the lining, otherwise take it to a leather specialist to be cleaned.
