Pics work now - I especially like the shot of the cuff where you can see all the color variation and wear. Yeah I kind of see what you mean about the UV lightened spots. I never expected that to happen.. very cool.
Your jacket is literally my favorite TOJ ever. Thanks for the info.
I got my 2010 DR in Toffee tan because of your jacket. Wish mine was slightly lighter in color like your light whiskey, that thing is gorgeous.
PS, pics don't work.
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?
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.
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.
