RE.  Conditioning calf leather.   I've seen drew mention that you can use "conditioner" to soften up leather, but don't recall seeing anybody mention brands or anything.   Have you guys used anything to speed up the break in process and get the leather more pliable? Did conditioner darken the color?
AKang :  Nice style/haircut!
One of the best leather jacket manufacturers in the world is going to be closing shop soon, and you guys are worried about the little totes.   Mine is sitting in the basement collecting dust.
Thanks chubacca.     Here's some more pics of the Toffee Tan Calf.  This is about 2 weeks of wear, with a little watch porn thrown in for good measure.           All are natural light in the evening.  This color varies a lot.  From orange, to brown, to brown/yellow.
Looks great man.
Those of you with tight sleeves on your (calf) jackets - I have a question.     How much "give" did your jacket have in the sleeves after some wear?   I typically wear button up long sleeve shirts, with the sleeves rolled up on my forearm.  Well, I ordered my jacket quite fitted, and when I put it on the jacket forces my shirt sleeves to hike up past my elbow... leaving most of the shirt on my bicep.   I can't bend my elbow much past 90 degrees which sounds...
Probably the last picture.  It's somewhere between light and medium brown...kind of the color of peanut butter.   It's a nice looking shade of brown as is, but I think with some serious wear it will be off the charts.
2010 DR Calf Toffee Tan          
As noted, this isn't VTG.   And I wrote a typo.  I'm not getting the tan calf (couldn't get a picture of it).  I'm getting the toffee tan calf, after charly sent me a sample pic.  It looks very similar to the above jacket.
I debated for a long time, which of my jackets would be tan and which would be black lamb.     In the end I decided tan = DR, and black lamb = Moto.  This post is to blame...
