Convinced me to get a MDR instead of a Moto. Now which leather should I get for a black MDR? Also do my measurements look normal?:

shoulders: 43 (front)
chest: 90
midsection: 76
waist: 88
front: 61 (slightly sagged, right below the waistband)
arm: 63

There are certain 'specials' now and then that come along as a result of the right meeting of design and material, and a 4-zip MDR in the super dark brown goat with brown-taped YKK's in silver is another one of them. We make a lot of nice stuff, but there's the few things that are just exceedingly NICE, like that whiskey 2010 DR we made for aeglus. I got to see that thing in person and it was pretty amazing. Blows up my ego to see stuff like that.
What I want to see is that dark brown goatskin 4-zip MDR with some age, maybe 3 months or more on it. It will look godly. Anybody who has to go back to college this coming fall should get one now so that it's perfectly worn-in by the time school starts, so you can style on campus plebes. redface.gif Fuck, I wish I could be in college again... I'd leave a trail of styleless victims...

Have to echo Johan, I was impressed with how soft and comfy the goat is.  Tried to take a photo in sunlight to capture that texture.

A zipped up photo would be great!

the dark brown is really dark. Looks almost black in photos but in person it's a dark dark brown.

This photo nicely illustrates the properties of the goatskin that TOJ is currently using. It has a vintage, textured, kind of distressed feel right out of the box, though at the same time the softness and slight gloss give it a air of quality / refinement. If the black lamb is a "baller" material, I would describe the goat as "rogueish"

Doubtful, it's generally marked low to avoid that.

Brown goat MDR looks great. Really like goat as a leather, maybe even more than lamb (although I haven't seen any black lamb yet).

Yep, most everyone who sees it at night will assume it's black.

Looks great Lorcan - when did you order? I ordered the same jacket 24hours before the cutoff.*


*Actually ordered in black but recently changed it to brown. Really good to see how close to black it is. Best of both worlds.
