    Miles-

    Cedar wood is a good deodorant. I have had good results with using cedar wood shavings inside of a small cloth pouch. Put the pouch inside the jacket while the jacket is laying flat. Zip up the jacket and leave it for a few days (or longer). Hopefully, this will help you.

    Miles,
    If it is that bad I have seen posts where people have actually machine washed a shearling jacket and air dried. I did some research a while back and bought some lanolin soap which is supposed to be more delicate to shearling. I used it to spot clean cuffs with reasonable results. In a washing machine I imagine greater results.

    Don't let your dog wear it.

    I would spray it down with Fabreze Spray and Odor Remover and put it out in the sun for a day.
    I've used it on my B3, B6, Irvin AND my dog..........takes the smell out of all of them!;)

    once in a while I give my dogs a bath (all 3 of them) ...

    but no joking think the advice of B-Man 2 works: used that "Febreze" a couple of times on WW2 garment to remove stink so should alos work with your jacket

    I found a solution and it worked incredibly. I used sandal wood oil. It’s a natural product used for homeopathic remedy. It instantly took the smell off my collar and never returned. I just put a few drops on my fingers and wiped it on. The sandal wood scent is very subtle, smells like quality leather, and goes away after an hour! Really worked fantastically. Here’s an image of the product [​IMG]

    I'm glad that you found a solution, Miles. Your jacket will be ready for many more hours of hard wear. :)
