debating between goat and lamb, more leather information please
how does goat age? lamb?
i had the old toj calf and that was far too thick/indestructible but afraid of the lamb being damaged on a night out etc
your testimonial isn't an anomaly, plenty of people did just the same and reported essentially versions of what you claimed. iirc the only leather that was head and shoulders above TOJ was a Balenciaga that someone compared their jacket to.
fwiw i have read that the "quality" of MM sidezips varies greatly with every season and more than a few people have been terribly disappointed. it is worth mentioning that they are almost 1k at retail.
