Leather Shrinkage

Post  Chalkie on Mon 07 Dec 2015, 7:16 am

Wondered if anyone has a solution for this. Tried on my old leather jacket only to find it was too tight. Only explanation I can think of is the leather must have shrunk.

Befriend a motorcyclist who is one or two sizes larger than you (than you used to be, that is) and buy him lots of custard tarts.

If you hang onto it long enough it will shrink down small enough for you to make a fancy key holder out of it  like this one ..................
