Right now I'm jumping between that, the one I mentioned above, an olive calf MDR, or a dark red/medium grey T-1.

 

RFX's suede MDR just did it for me though, looks so great.

So many choices, so little money. cold[1].gif

Will trade bank account and firstborn for horsehide A-2 with shearling collar.

These are excellent shots. I don't know what it is, but the lighting really shows of the leather....

Also, that dark brown goat is really growing on me. At first I thought it was too dark, but it looks fantastic in your picture. I'm starting to really want a 4 zip MDR in it....is 4 earth-tone TOJ leather jackets too many? devil.gif

How would you describe the difference in hand feel of the lamb vs goat?

lamb is soft, almost oily sometimes, with a 'cool' hand feel that is meaty - and then goat has a very cold (probably one of the coldest of them all) handfeel due to the pebble grain and it feels more lacquered and slick. Also, a bit tougher feeling, but when made up, it's still a soft jacket.

Don't see the point of posting pics of the same jackets on the hanger over and over again. Might post a few fit-pics though. Could use some advice styling these. Having a hard time getting the olive right.

Considering a T1 for SS. I'd like to see more pics of the suedes before I pull the trigger.

They probably have it in some kind of lamb, seeing they have a huge variety of options. Best way to find out is to email them.

Was wondering about this as well since a lot more suede color options were listed in the T-1/T-3 product pages. Really wanted a sand/tan suede or heavy black calf to be available

Short answer, no. The longer answer is that this is a room that I've just cleaned up, and I have no desire to mess the room up again. There is tan in calf suede, ask about it within. As for anything else, I selected these colors for a reason. There is a point where things start to get ugly very quickly. Colors of leathers are always available in a limited palette, not to mention the limited selection we contend with, and unfortunately people usually expect a wish color to exist and it never does. Henceforth, it can go two ways - the chart is there, and if we get anything new we'll add it, and then if people feel the need to ask about a color that's not on the chart, they should probably go in expecting it to not exist in suitable form. If it does (like, tan calf suede) then we will just pick the one that looks best, and something like this needs to be taken with an open mind and some flexibility.

As for lamb suedes, there are also more colors, but unless you're small sized, they won't work, as the hides need to be long enough for sleeves and most lamb suede hides are not that long. That's why there are so few colors in that category.

There is no burgundy leather.

I've picked/rejected a lot of leathers simply because I am here with the swatches in hand, I go to the leather market all the time and know what these leathers look and feel like, andI want to offer a uniform quality - and also I want to make sure the various options result in good looking pieces. One thing doesn't always work with every style, and not everything is begging to be customized. It's a waste of money if you don't love it, it's a waste of our time if it results in something that is made to order but looks ugly, it's a waste of an animal(s) if it becomes like that, etc, etc.
