Maybe you could use yellow paint and stencil? I think that's what I'd do.
I hit the jackpot... or so I thought. I won a great looking, broken-in brown A2 leather flight jacket on eBay for $25.
Now, the listing said it had a smell like cigarette smoke that would have to be aired-out. I got it yesterday, and it would have been more accurate had it said that it smells like it had been in a house fire. It absolutely reeks of smoke. It stunk-up my office for 20 minutes just taking it out of the box briefly to try it on.
So does anyone have a tip for getting the smell of apocalyptic hellfire out of a leather garment? One that doesn't involve me sending it out to a cleaner for 3 weeks and $60 to have it professionally treated?
Also, I will need to put 'Nostromo' on the back of this thing, and I don't know the best way to do it on leather. I know a guy with a silk-screening shop, but would silk-screening even work on leather? Does anyone have a stencil I can use or know of a maker who can do something that will work on this jacket?
Hi, to me they look somewhat like modified Palladium (Pallabrousse) boots from France. I'm not sure about this, but they have the look.
Fred--brilliant researching! I agree with you, they seem to be initially the French boots. Yes, probably altered for the screen, as the PF Flyers certainly were altered slightly (extra breathing hole, up from two to three; the lacing change).
