What do I use to re-color my black leather coat?

I have a black, lambskin leather coat from Wilson Leather. The coat has faded along the seams and down the front. When I look down at my coat (while wearing) I can see a white fading like an oxidized paint job on a car. The rep at Wilson Leather told me to use a conditioner to treat the leather and use black shoe polish, sparingly, to touch up the faded spots. I am very hesitant to use the shoe polish. Any suggestions?

Just buy a new jacket or try the shoe polish if you are really concerned with the way it looks.

Shoe polish is your best bet it's for leather shoes, and its supposed to add color back in

Depending on the age of the jacket, you would probably want to bring it to a GOOD leather shop and see if they can match it with a dye that will look more natural and not too much of one color or another... More
