Which is a perfect segue to my question. What's everybody's favourite non-Aurum last? I've been going through his tumbler and for his regular line there are times when he doesn't identify the last.
His leathers are basically left overs from the original run. It's like purchasing end of roll fabric. You can get some nice stuff at a great price if you know what you're looking for when buying from re-sellers. The downside is that you never know what Drew will find in the market when he goes shopping for leathers which impacts consistency. The olive Italian calf is a perfect example.

What's the weight of the cloth? What was the template/inspiration for the jacket? A field/safari jacket? It doesn't quite look like a shirt jacket.
Skoaktiebolaget carries both brands. You should probably mosey on over to their affiliate thread to ask them this question. At the very least they should be able to give you a side by side picture of leather swatches of both leathers. I believe that G&G orders their hatch grain from Horween in just one colour, strips it and then re-dyes it so colour variations can occur from batch to batch. If the colour is important to you it's probably best to purchase in person. From...
