Yep. I got a new Schott that's pretty stiff, but if I wanted soft I'd have bought one of those import jackets at the mall. If it's heavy enough to protect you, it's supposed to be stiff.

I have herd of people washing them Not sure about the dryer
Do NOT put your leather jacket in the dryer. You will not be happy. I have never done it myself but have heard other and it ruined their jacket.

a dryer is not going to hurt it unless you have the heat on. the dryer should just tumble the jacket while the shoes flex it around.

Default use rolls royce hide food

rolls or connelly make a cream called hide food. just rub it all over the jacket put it in the sun and forget about it for the day . It will soke in the leather makes the great leather smell come back and keep it soft . I have been useing it in my rolls for 25 years and my car still smells like new leather. you can get it at a rolls dealer or just go on line for connelly hide food . take care . its not costly either

I would never do this! If you could smell my shoes you'd understand.

Got a busy road near you? Throw it out there for a while. In a couple of hours it will be nice and soft.

Washing machine with some softeners. Then you smell good too.
