Washing My Cabourn Mallory

After reading a post on the Nigel Cabourn blog on how to wash your Mallory Jacket to get it looking rugged for Autumn, decided to give it a shot. It’s always felt a bit stiff, so softening it up and making it a little more rugged is all good with me.

It’s basically just soaking it in lukewarm water, nothing too aggressive, but still crapped myself at the thought of ruining my favourite jacket.

The Mallory is a heavy jacket anyway, but once soaked it weighs a ton and took two days to drip dry in the sun hanging from the balcony! Couldn’t be happier with the results though, it’s shrunk about half a size making it a perfect fit now. Roll on Autumn!
