Is the "italian calfskin" soft or stiff? Compared to standard calf.

What can the horse be use for? Just motos and DRs?

If I had the choice I'd definitely pick lamb over calf.

Subtle pushes for more quilted suede BCDRs. I'm assuming the "Forest green" suede is that "Sherwood"? Only on an iPhone so it's hard the gauge the colors still.

Sherwood is mostly forest green but has a tinge of blue through it, and is weaker in yellows than a normal 'forest' green. It's like forest green mingled with dark teal and got smoky looking, it's very nice. Diesel blue is also very nice.

Horsehide is very limited. We probably only have enough for a few, and I am still deciding what models we want to make of those.

'Soft calf' is almost like lambskin. Italian calf, which we're almost out of, is drier to the hand, and very heavy. Black and brown are slightly waxier and smoother, also very heavy.

SO far the chart is just there so you guys have something to look at. Ignore the codes, those are internal reference numbers. I am working on card for each product so that you can see which colors/materials are options.

Sorry, but to clarify: does this chart represent the full gamut of colours available in the various materials?

Specifically, I am curious about the calf suede. I'm not really seeing the colour I was originally looking for, so I might tweak my order

So the olive calfskin I recieved will replace the italian calfskin?

 

"New" olive calf (not mine):

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

 

 

Italian Olive Calf:

 

Is this correct?

Cheers, appreciate the response. I'm really excited to see more calf suede. Not that baseballs don't look really cool, but the BCDR is just on a whole other level. Now I have to consider quilting more though.

Anybody who is able, feel free to take a stab at designing some product cards for me. I am not much of a graphic designer/computer expert. Here's something i just whipped together but we're aiming for something to eventually make a uniform look for a site.

I don't think there is a "new" olive italian calf. I think they are simply almost out of it.

Make that a Sherwood QBCDR, and you'll be the one teaching others things in life.

Since you're moving towards new product cards, I think you should definitely consider more obvious ways of displaying options. Such as having it laid out:

1) Calf
2) Lamb
3) Goat

Then move on...

1) Brown
2) Black

Then zippers...

1) Gunmetal
2) Silver
3) Black

This is all just an example, but I think it would drastically simplify the ordering process. Without fear of de-personalizing the process, perhaps even radio buttons would be a good move. A few ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing stores come to mind, sites like Outlier have very good product forms, and an expansion of this could be very good.
