no, I really dislike pre-distressed stuff because it looks, well, pre-distressed. I have handwashed lamb that has qualities of distressing, without the outright deterioration of the leather itself, and lamb breaks in a lot faster than calf. You can get noticeable arm creasing in lamb within a day or two. If you study my fit pics, all the jackets have taken on very mild creasing in the arms in the 5 minutes I have worn them around. Cowhide takes something 5-10 years before it starts looking incredible, but it is worth it. Maybe two years of intense wearing would show results too, but the reason I hate predistress (like the C Diem above) is that just like faux whiskers on jeans, there is no dimension or personality, and it's too washed out and deteriorated. An honestly broken-in leather jacket will have great creasing in the arms and back (from sitting down) soft creasing around the collar bone, some creasing up the side seams as well, plus, there will be the nice contrast between the matte of the leather and the shine on high points like seam puckers and the calandering effect you get on rolled edges, cuffs, the sides and back (where it follows your body contours) and around high-use areas. Just say no to pre-distressed leathers.
