post #26281 of 40784
Trying to decide between a black or olive lamb harrington or another black CWU-45 to replace the one I've now outgrown. Any thoughts?

Hmm... okay, I would still go flakes before grease, just to see if it's necessary.

I doesn't really which color it is, as it's a beautiful color either way. inlove.gif

Dark green leather done right is amazing, the local Knoll reseller has a forest green Barcelona chair in the showroom, such a great color.

I know gdl has an olive lamb harrington if you look through the gallery.  I think another dude is wearing a black lamb harrington as well.

Yeah, saw both. I was leaning olive but I'll have to think about this for a minute.

I would say get another CWU - beast of a jacket. really love my one

If you want something different why not try out the A2, still a bomber but different at the same time

Not to fond of the idea of a harrington in a leather. Doesnt seem badass enough for one - if it was to be in a suede then hells yeah.

I would go with an olive suede harrington, just because I would expect to receive it around March if I ordered now. Earthy-colored, lightweight suedes sound perfect for Spring, especially if you live in an area that has warmer springs or doesnt get much sudden/unexpected rainfall.

I remember saving this image, don't remember what brand it was but I liked the sizing of it. Was gonna use it to ask charly to help me on sizing for it.

sorry, that pic I posted wasn't the sky blue. I was just posting a nice suede color that I thought people should get. redface.gif

I'm back in Korea, gonna start setting up the color charts and stuff today.

I swear. Jong-Un must have some kind of weather manipulation machine because its goddamn freezing. Also, I was wondering what's the best avenue through which we can arrange a repair of my DR 2010? I sent you a PM but it must have gotten lost amidst all the Charly questions.

One more day until shipping day!

I fell down twice on ice on the way to work today, with an adjumma taking a picture the second time. Then she practically skipped away on the same path while wearing heels.

I think it's black magic.

I was munching on a delicious Kinder bar and sipping some stout last night when I slipped on some ice- cartoon character style. Broke my candy bar in half and spilled stout everywhere. A friend of mine slipped on some ice on New Year's Eve and broke her wrist. Everything looks like a potential lawsuit...

Apparently the gov't doesn't salt the sidewalks because 1) it's expensive and 2) it's bad for the environment.

Yeah I had been gone for a week, turned the heat off in my place - come back and it took 4 hours for it to reach a humane temperature level indoors. Not very good heating here I think. When I went to sleep (head to toe multi layers of Uniqlo) I could see my breath. This was indoors, in bed. ffffuuuu.gif

I'm sitting here with a cold, in the cold, but kinda wrestling with my screwy computer to get color samples up. Dan is grabbing some suede color samples for me today too, so we can look at getting those out. New pricelist updated for 2013 soon.

I love that APC wool bomber. been thinking of coping for a while. In terms of toj I think drew could do something really solid with a piece like this.

We made one, long ago - a wool version. We could do heavy wool later but I'm thinkign of releasing that suiting wool MA-1 pretty soon. Considering the manufacturing timeline it'd be a nice spring piece, has volume without being too hot.
