Hi, this is Aubrey from The Leather and Vinyl Doctor here in Utah. We're talking today about how to distress a leather jacket. Now there's not a lot of rocket science involved here. It's really a case of pounding the living daylights out of the jacket so it looks really banged up, okay? Now you can do that in a variety of ways. You can get yourself some sand paper if you like, you can get yourself a scour like this and you can just start going crazy with it. One of the pretty popular techniques is to take the jacket and thrash it against an asphalt floor or something that's pretty rough. So you can bash it and bash it and just have a look at it and make sure that you're not thrashing it too much and putting tears and rips into it, but work it against some gravels, some sand, you know various things like that and that's going to break it up and it's going to cause probably a loss of color, a bit of scratching, it's not going to be the, obviously the pristine jacket that it once was but that's obviously what you're after, a very distressed look. But you can get a little bit creative, a bit imaginative with how you want to distress the jacket but that's how you do it. That's how you distress a leather jacket.
