Things seem to be looking up!
Job and now this weekend found the damn leather pants we picked up last year at Folsom from David Menkes booth for 80 dollars hiding behind some jackets in the closet.
Real nice ones and they even fit nice and snug.
They are the type with the color strip up the side and the flagging color on a back pocket.

Now have to finally get over to Davids and have him make a couple alterations the primary one being lose the red pocket rim on the left and have a Black and Grey lip put on the left so i am flagging correctly.
Yes it has red stripes up the side and i just like the look.

Did a neat trick to make them fit and to get whomever owned them last's sweat out.
Shaved about a quarter of a puck of saddle soap into shaving and went over to my local laundromat and in the 4-loader ran the pants through the wash (Cold water only) using the saddle soap in the first cycle.

Now before anyone goes how can you wash leather, its no biggie!

The trick is to not dry them near or using heat or leave them in the sun.

Just a cool place and good air ventilation so they dry on their own. Toss them in a dryer and you can kiss the leather good bye.

Took off any dirt sweat and grime plus the saddle soap reconditioned the leather nicely.
Now sitting around while they are still damp and moving in them and stretching to make them conform and stretch to my shape and to keep them from shrinking any. So far feels like a second skin Yaaay!!!!!!

Yes that a trick all you bois and gurls to get your leather to conform to you get em wet and wear em till they dry and they will fit you like a glove.
