post #18781 of 45036

On the fence about changing my order to a black goat 4ZMDR (these acronyms man).

This new goatskin still so soft that the zips could easily scratch the leather? I recall someone saying the new goat was a bit tougher than lamb.

Also, mocked this up from one of Aeglus' photos to help envision the black:

369

Clicked last post and didn't see the 2 pages of discussion, before I had made the post.shog[1].gif

I've been thinking a bit about the bball. Would it look good in any of the non-suede leathers? Was thinking a leather with a bit of texture could work, like goat. Might also make it stiff and difficult to button.

Anyways, please make final call bball after recollection is available.

Anyone got pics of the olive lambskin on a finished jacket?

Anyone here ordered the grey melange trousers? Charly told me some were ordered. I really just wanna see the fabric on those (and a better fit pic) before I put an order in for a few pairs of trousers.

good question and I should've addressed the other question like this a few pages back but I've lost the post now, the one asking why so many people go for the same makeup as the sample colors, there's definitely more than just those.
I'd say, off hand;
2010 DR, basically all of the available colors, but I'm not cracked up on the idea of cream/off white - skip that one if you want my opinion.
Lamb: black, brown, navy, whiskey, sand, bottle green, olive green, cream/off white, medium gray, light dove gray.
Calf: black, brown (light, medium/standard and dark), navy, olive green, bottle green.
Goat: dark brown, black.
Horse: medium brown, dark brown.
If you want the best of the best of that list, I'd say the two green Italian calf leathers are insane quality leather, if you want something solid but not yet done before, go for the goatskins, and if you want the standby, black lamb of course
Moto - black or brown calf or goat, or brown horse; whisky or sand tan if you can swag it
MDR, I like the 4-zip version, get it in black or brown goatskin, or one of the calf colors, or black lamb
QDR, all the lamb colors work, the two green calfskins, skip the goat and horse for this model. You want something softer that lets the leather undulate from the many stitch lines on this jacket, it's an amazing effect. Black lamb is standby here again
A2 Bomber - black or brown lamb, or black or dark brown goat
CWU-45 - black lamb
Bball - tan or grey calf suede
A-1 Bomber - colored lamb suede
T-1 and T-3 jackets - colored lamb suede
am I missing any?

Awesome post. What are your thoughts on the CWU-45 in olive lamb? Still straying from the envisioned design?

I know what he said, just following up since olive is the "authentic" color for that jacket so it might not be as much of a stretch as brown or any other color.

Just checking to see if any more experienced Toj heads, could advise me, have a toj2011 48/46 lengths, the length is perfect, getting a A2 should I get length added, since it seems shorter? I don't wanna email drew yet, won't have the cash for a week or so

 

I read back through the thread, earlier drew was talking about how you wear your jeans, has an impact on length, I tend to wear my jeans low, and looking at some of the pics on the gallery, I see some with the length I want other's I find too short.
