For the select few troglodytes not reading the TOJ thread:

"Downsides" - or just "asides": Much more visible grain on this leather, stiffer feel too. I'll have to see if it breaks in differently. Pooches out a bit in the stomach, that could settle as well, but is maybe also a function of the hem style and single-direction zipper. It could just be because I owned the 2010, but the torso feels maybe a bit naked without the buckles - could be because I'm 6'1 and the jacket is sized accordingly.
Overall: Much less of a superhero-type jacket. Slouchy, lots of character, lots of really nice detailing, as usual. Feels more "TOJ" than the 2010, and although it's kind of moot now, still the best your bones can buy. Construction is insane, as usual, and feels like slipping back into a second skin.
cooking brussel sprouts with pancetta now, it's cheating but it's the only way to make them taste good.

i disagree; brussel sprouts tossed in olive oil, salt, and pepper, then sauteed in a pan for a few minutes are delicious.

jacket looks good, though.

Whether roasting or sautéing brussels sprouts, you gotta split em in half to get that nice browned half. I have also had them sliced up into little ribbons and fried and that's pretty excellent.
No opinions about leather jackets.

I eat my leather jackets au naturel, like a man.

What a waste of pancetta synth

Pre-cooked new potatoes sauteed with finely sliced garlic and cubed pancetta, season with sea salt, add a good seeded mustard and lastly, finely sliced red onion at the end before serving.

Goes well with a zucchini, boccocini and roasted garlic tart (fresh lemon juiced over at the end) and my chocolate souffle for desert (my wifes favourite)

thanks guys, i've been racking my brain for hours trying to decide what to eat for dinner!

post #28121 of 43373
def cut the sprouts in half, some cubed lardon is always a good idea and some dried cranberries temper the saltiness of the pork
post #28122 of 43373

deep fried brussel sprouts are the best.  it gets crispy and brown on the edges, with a creme fraiche or some other cream on top.  throw in some sliced apples for freshness, and you have the perfect tapas. oh, and bacon doesn't hurt.

dont forget, brussel sprouts are an aphrodisiac and build testosterone. woot!

post #28124 of 43373
