    Set your dryer on air tumble/tumble dry. Toss your jacket in with a pair of clean boots/sneakers for 30mins.

    Why would you want to wreck your jacket? I have one that's like 5 years old and still looks new because I take care of it, and it's tough cowhide. Makes people think I have $$ when I'm poor lol

    Only problem is people try to buy coke off me when I'm wearing it... sorry guys, no REALLY I don't have any... sorry again... OK GO AWAY

    He wants the rugged leather look, not the "I have money" look.

    Oh well if you wanna look rugged do what I did to my old one... wear it while working on your cars. Preferably from underneath with no creeper. Go skiiing in a leather jacket. Give your motorcycle too much gas and crash the f*cker going 45 around a right angle turn.

    Actually I'd recommend against the last one. Kinda hurts
