Leather Jacket - Shrinking

Question: I had to buy a 2x leather coat. However, the sleeves are to long. How or what can I do to shrink them a little? Should I spray it down with water and let it dry in the sun?

Thanks, William

Reply: Wetting the coat and drying it in the heat is the worst thing you can do to shorten the sleeves. You are better off taking growth hormone and hope your arms will grow. Seriously, just take your coat to a good tailor who has equipment to handle leather and he can shorten the sleeves for you.
