... and now I wish that a similar detail was available for the 2010 DR. laugh.gif

What exactly do you use them for?

obviously I unzip the cuffs all of the time, but I have yet to find reason to pop open the snaps

Pretty much nobody can get their hands in the hand-warmer pockets. I have now had to do repairs on both pockets on my bomber b/c I have tried to get my hands in there and tore stitching while trying. If it's cold enough to need my hands in my pockets, I just wear gloves instead, and keep those gloves in one of the bomber's top-access pockets. I wouldn't expect to get any pocket-use-related stretching. Mine is the 2010 bomber, btw.

You pop open the snap to zip the cuff all the way and make sure it wraps around your wrist rather than making an unsightly bump.

This, and if you feel brave, you can actually modify your gloves to snap into the cuffs. There were a couple pairs of glove which I did this, but the snaps were not the right match with the ones on the jacket so one was too tight and one was a bit loose. Maybe when I go back to Korea next year I might ask Dan to sell me a few sets of snaps and try again.

(Sorry for no pics, I lost both pairs because I am a careless bum. one pair was black knit gloves which I sewed a suede patch on & put the snap on it; another was black leather gloves that already had a wrist adjustment strap so it was easy to punch one in)


ps. I need to learn to speak better English

It just works on any level you look at it.
Humour: check
Pleasant to say out loud: check
and as Willy demonstrated looks good in official looking fonts: check.
I mean look at this shit, it's perfect in Copperplate.

I am somewhat concerned that the bitches will not be impressed.

veg tan moto, almost 1 year in. It didn't get worn at all over the summer (I was in a tank top and underpants), although it did get oiled once or twice. It's looking better and better, although it's a bit stiff right now, and I think it could use another coat of obenauf's. It's really strange in that it sort of toes the line between "second-skin comfortable" and "armor-like bondage device." I'm often too faint of heart to wear it, since I love the supple softness of the lamb and calf suede jackets, but I'm certainly never unhappy to put it on.
The personality of the leather is only getting more pronounced as it ages, and I find the spots, discolorations, and visible grains very appealing - it also really is a constant reminder that you are wearing the skin of a dead animal.
I suppose the main issue is that it doesn't get that much sun, or that much wear, so it's definitely going to be a multi-year process to get it to the point even that Dellath is at with his. It has already turned into sort of a good 'ol standby at this point, which is nice - don't know what to wear? Raw jawnz, raw jacket. I mean, it's not quite baseball-jacket-throwonable, but it's definitely a sort of coddling piece. Which is interesting, actually, because if you think back to Temple Grandin's squeeze machine, it's a bit weird to be soothed by getting squeezed by the skin of a dead animal that was probably...soothed by getting squeezed before it was killed.

Starting to look really good Synthese! How did you treat it? (sun to oil to wearing/beating it up ratio) Also, has it softened up much?

To all the other VTG owners...did anyone use anything else besides Obenauf's leather oil and mink oil?

Maybe change the dot in Coppidge to a diamond? (like, a real sewn in diamond) wink.gif

Arggggh now I'm really torn. Any other votes? Fishtail or Peacoat? If I go with the Peacoat which colors do you guys like? I'm thinking black, navy or dark gray.
post #23730 of 45025
Navy peacoat for sure.
