uh whats wrong with a DR in suede? please explain...
It probably has something to do with the apparent incongruity of the material choice with the historically intended purpose of jackets of this design. But, if the jacket in question is calf suede, then it's probably already thicker (and "safer") than the lambskin DRs that are ubiquitous here, none of which will be used for riding, I would think. All that's left to say is that it defies convention and will draw some ire from some people. The important part is if you can make it look good though. If you can do that, who cares. Personally, I think it looks a little weird now, but will look totally BA after it gets worn in and darkens. edit:
secondly, who the fuck buys a dr in suede...cmoooooooon
I think this was already answered: People that have got 13 leather jackets. I applaud your efforts to get people to diversify their wardrobe, though. I enjoy seeing people who can bridge the spectrum of menswear with a lot of different types of fits the most.
