That is indeed! I was all about Ibanez guitars and basses growing up, but now I'm suddenly wanting to get a fender, or at least something warmer. Still, an ibanez feels the most comfortable in the hand to me.
Not sure if you mean unlined as well but without lining it could be uncomfortable and scratchy to wear. I own like 30%~ unlined jackets, and I have to say that the difference is not as much as I thought it would be, but definitely feel that a more lined jacket is more practical/easier to put on, better movement, and I can believe that it'd be more durable as is said.
I feel that structure does some of those things too (wearability etc)
