I spray dyed one of my old jackets and it looked great but it didn't last for . Everywhere there is wrinkles in the leather, the dye will come off. Like in the bends in the elbows, around the wrists where the gloves ride etc....the dye like wears off. Not too hard just to keep touching it up but.....

Still cheaper then a new jacket. Even if you use a $8 can of dye a year for touch ups.....not too bad I guess...
