^ Stellar!
ML, I would definitely choose the Vicenza over the tumbled cordovan.  The Vicenza is a great hide!

 The Canuck in that photo is HH. Himel's Shinki HH jackets are $2,250 - $2,450.  Himel's new Steerhide jackets are $1,350 - $1,650. The new Steerhide is nice.  That said, I prefer the Shinki HH. 
 I have owned Michelin Pilot Sport Cups.  The ride is not terrible.  The much bigger problem is that, because they are so soft and sticky, they pick up everything on the road.  I had countless punctured tires.
 I was speaking in terms of higher performance cars (e.g., the dual clutch transmissions in my 997TTs and GT-R, which do not have torque converters).  I don't know about the majority of paddle shifting transmissions in the marketplace.  I was surprised that Chevy went with a torque converter in the A8 for the new Z06; on the other hand, it shifts remarkably fast.  I recently drove a F-Type-R with a paddle shifting auto transmission and it also shifted quickly.

 Yes.  Shinki Horsehide from Japan.
