always lamb for first maybe goat for second and calf when you're ready to break in a jacket for years.

Buy the leather which you prefer in the mdr style. Refer to the toj mdr gallery

IMO Some leathers are better suited to a particular style than others. For example, Lamb suits a2 & dr 2010 well, but i like the look of calf on the mdr vs lamb.

Some prefer lamb on mdr which is fine as well, its just personal preference really and i dont think 1 is better than the other. Consider the properties below which should help with choosing.

Lamb: buttery soft but still thick, ready to wear/no break in required, less structure than calf, has a matte look to it where calf has a bit of shine.

Calf: heavy, provides a structured look, requires break in, looks bad ass, has a shine to it that lamb doesnt.

It's the Italian calfskin in olive. Every time I need to go outside I smile when I reach for the jacket.

Re: calf v lamb, the break in period really isn't something to be feared. I've got three cow hide jackets and though you'll want to wear it a bit at home first for the creases to set in your arms, once you're good the structure and the way the jacket sits on you makes you feel like a million bucks.

Thanks guys!! Its my first toj so I think I'll stick with the lamb.

just saw the silver zips and whiskey moto, the zips look sick

makes me kind of regret going for the gunmetal on my 4 zip

but i just checked my a2 and honestly the zips look real silver to me anyways so whats up with that?
post #24217 of 40680
Bomber default zippers are silver. Gunmetal used to be the default for motos/riders,but that has since been changed to the new silver zips.

This thread could really benefit from a FAQ

weird when i ordered i specifically asked charley about it and he told me they only came in gunmetal =/
post #24220 of 40680

He told me silver "will be standard soon enough" when I asked last week, so gunmetal may still be the "default" option if you don't specify.

 

Anyway, this zipper talk got me thinking, what's going to happen with the leather choices when JC comes around? With the limited availability of some of them, will they be a MTO option or something like that?

Would like to. Probably will. It was in one of the visions I had a couple weeks ago.

 

Please make a weekend bag/large hold all. Has a TOJ bag been made previously?

Ok I think I am over my manic/hyper sarcastic episode I was having this morning. I get like that when I am frustrated and drinking hard. lol

Let's talk some new topics, shall we? Leave the finicky details and exact specs on everything alone for a moment....

^ here's a novelty, Drew: when can I order my new black MA-1? I want it while it still wears a toj logo in the neck, mind you.
