Alpine Star jacket, great price, terrible smell!!!
Dark of night after a long day on construction,... "hey buddy, want to buy a good motorcycle jacket!!!" Great price, windy evening, got 2 miles down the road and had to put it in the back of the truck. Smells like it hung on a rack in a smokey bar for about three years.
I've scrubbed the outside with a good leather cleaner and the smell goes away for about a day. The inside liner has been airing on the back porch for about a week and is fine. Removed armour and soaked in Biz it's fine too. Turned it wrong side out and showed the inside mesh the better part of a bottle of febreeze over a couple day period and it still smells horrible. Any ideas?
