After several years of careful maintenance, my two favorite pairs of raws have developed a little exterior surface fraying 1" or so above the cuffs from the roll-up crease.

So now I live in London and roughly three out of every four leather jackets is either some Perfecto knockoff or a cafe racer style moto jacket - and generally made of cheap leather. It's so ubiquitous that, as a motorcyclist myself, I'm officially over moto jackets. So what's the next evolution of the leather jacket?
