Picked this vest up a couple? Years ago for 5 bucks and she was stiff. Today I lightly wet the leather then applied neatsfoot oil and rubbed it in, applying heavier in the real stiff areas. After I started pulling and massaging the leather and let it sit for an hour. It's amazing how soft it's getting!

Just a side by side. The lighter color side is the real dry side.

That's amazing.  I'm guessing it will work on any leather goods  Question
