Old leatherjacket
Some time ago I fixed up an old waistcoat that belongs to my father, and we were both very happy with the result.
So, when my father came up with the idea to "re-condition" his old leatherjacket from 1957 - he thought I might be interested - which was of course correct.
The jacket looked a bit tired... But after changing some of the fabric and fixing up the parts that looked the most torn -

it looks pretty cool again.

The only thing I could not do, the machine could not handle a leather this thick, was to exchange or at least fix the seams around the zipper - but since it is working this should be fine.
Now to the burning question - will he use it again or will it be art on the wall?
