I bought a nice Burberry leather bomber jacket a few years ago that I wear pretty heavily during the fall/winter months. Breaking it out again for the season and noticed that it's got a bit of accumulated grime on it and the leather has coarsened a bit in spots from exposure to the elements. Can anyone recommend a good way to clean or oil it to get it back into top shape? I'm also open to taking it in somewhere for treatment if that's advisable, but very wary of harsh treatments or chemicals (i.e., certainly no dry cleaning).

In 4 months, I'm starting a new phase of my life where sweatshirts are no longer acceptable. Recommend things to keep me warm! [more inside]

Where can I get a jacket like Kim's blue one from Freaks and Geeks? Hopefully you've seen the show. If not, I'm not quite sure how to link to the google image results from my phone but it should come up quickly. It's worn by the character Kim played by Busy Phillips. I believe on the show she stole the jacket to get it. You know the one - blue with some stripes.

I read this a LONG time ago, a jacket where you could snap ur wrist (or some other hand geuster/movement) and it cause ur phone (stored in the sleeve) to drop right into ur hand. It was awesome if slightly risky and I'd like to take a look at it again.
Anyone know of it? Or something similar?

I didn't buy this jacket
when my kid was a baby. Who spends over a hundred bucks on something so frivolous? I didn't, but have been obsessed with it ever since. Does anything exist on earth that is similar and would suit a preschool-size boy? Boy being the operative word. [more inside]

For people living in areas where it snows each year: How many types of jackets do you use in a year? As in windcheaters, fall, light winter, heavy snow, etc. If you have more than one jacket that falls in the same class only list the most practical one, and please also give a brief description of each.

I'm trying to find an Russian Olympic warm-up jacket for my adult daughter. Nothing political, she just likes the colors. All my searches just turn up U.S. stuff. Any suggestions?
