Leather shrinking

Whats up guys, just bought a used leather JoeRocket jacket but its alittle big. What can i do to shrink the leather? I heard you can throw it in the dryer with wet towels and turn it on high heat. Any advice would help, thanks!

A cows skin doesn't shrink...
It may tighten up with water but it will loosen right back up. Your only choice is to have it altered or to get another jacket. I suggest ebaying it off and getting a new one that fits you.

You could save yourself a lot of hassle by visiting your local retailers.

Well, there is a Cycle Gear not to far from your loadtion listed to the left there. Although, they do not offer you a MotoHouston discount of atleast 10% off retail but, that should not stop you from trying their gear on.

Naturaly, I am going to say... Stop by Motorcyles-Unlimted and have Patrick or Suzanne get you fitted for just about any brand you like but, that is because I have been very happy with their service and pricing over the years I have dealth with them.

But, there are several sponsors of this site including Motorcycles-Unlimited, North West Cycles, Grand Prix Motoring and AJ Foyt Cycles that can be of help to you and I believe they all offer discounts for being a member of MH. So, find someone that is close that you like or just someone you like and give them a try.

I am pretty sure patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited can basically order you anything out of fieldsheer and alpinestars catalog. More brands too possibly, I am sure he will chime in.

Well, I have to ask-- have the opposite problem.. Since I started working out I hve put some inches on the arms and chest and shoulders.
Who can recommend a tailor to adjust my suit to fit the new me?

There is one in the Galleria and one next to Motorcycles-Unlimited. I have seen the work from the guy next to Motorcycles Unlimited and it looks good. Not familiar with the Galleria guy but hear it is good work as well.
