Why Myk smells like pee

Pride of Cleveland became an official Joe Rocket dealer today:
Phil: My only problem with Joe Rocket is they’re made in Pakistan.
JR Rep: Not anymore, as of last March none of it is made in Pakistan.
Phil: Where’s it made then? (thinking Central America, etc.)
JR Rep: China. The quality has gone up significantly and the leathers smell
Phil: Smell better?
JR Rep: Yeah, in Pakistan they cure all their leather products in Cow Urine.
Phil: What !?
JR Rep: Ever wonder why your leathers smell so funky the first time you sweat
in them. It’s the curing process in Pakistan, giant vats of cow urine with
hides soaking in it.
Phil: Damn, you learn something new every day. I guess China ain’t so bad.
