You never know, the bcdr already has inherent flexibility built into it via choice of paneling, and Drew did randomly add that secret menu for the classic moto after people asked.

I like that, slipgun. a lot. I'll add that to the secret menu (aka the list of things I post here and the really gud readerz catch) - one thing that won't be apparent in the photoshop sample is that the inside sleeves have the quilt detail as well. Nice.

I've patiently (ok, maybe not so patiently) read through the past 15 pages or so after briefly hyperventilating upon realizing that the exact jacket I want - BCDR, no quilting, in grey - is now available. Is there a restricted time window for ordering? a) I doubt I'd wear it much before fall if I ordered it now, and b) I'm already eyeing a new tattoo and a vacation, so it'd be nice to have a few months to save up the $$$. Considering manufacturing time, I don't think I'd want to order before August or so.

I hope that Drew's tomorrow is somehow my today, due to timezone. Also, sayonara tax return.

so is this the medium grey lamb? one more question - has there been a post in the past describing the washing process? I know shit about washing the leather, is the lamb gonna shrink at all for example? Thanks

-dark grey
-i just soaked it under a hot shower for 10-15 minutes, hung to dry on a correctly sized hanger - results were bad as the leather released a white powdery feed from the leather (most likely salt or something from the dying/finishing) and looked blotchy and ashy, which is unusual for this lambskin
-i used leather conditioner all over the jacket and it restored the finish to an even sateen grey, which is the state you're seeing in the picture above. Looks very nice after the wash/conditioning in real life as well.

refer back on more about washing the leather if interested. More importantly - if you don't know what to expect from washing leather, then just don't do it. It's not mandatory by any means, it's experimental at best.

yeah I know it's not mandatory, just wondering if it can be used for shrinking the leather? I believe lamb does shrink a bit doesn't it?
