I just received a new jacket from Leatherup.com
Jacket looks and fits great, unfortunately it has been intentionally distressed at the edges to give it a fake vintage look. Makes no sense to me, as the rest of the jacket looks brand new. This "feature" was not mentioned in the online description, nor is it visible in the pictures.
Rather than deal with the hassle of return shipping and possibly getting something else I'm not happy with, I'd rather just fix this one.
The edges look like someone took a semi-fine grade sandpaper to them prior to stitching the jacket together. All I want to do is restore the black color in the least noticeable way possible.
I have very little experience with leather. Never even polished a pair of shoes! My two ideas are black shoe polish, or black leather dye.
Anyone have an opinion on which would be preferable, or a suggestion for something not even on my radar?
