so used to my calf leather but this lamb just fits so much better, and a hell of a lot more comfortable too.

 

i beat my lamb up and it's fine

whenever i wear it i'm always touching myself

This is how I damaged my lamb AMDR:
Pop bottles -> leaning/dancing against a newly constructed backdrop behind the table. Little did I know, they didn't bother rounding off the raw edges of the metal mesh they used for said backdrop. This resulted in some unfortunate discoveries the next morning.

Glued down what I could with the tears and then hit it with Saphir Reno. I brought it into a biker shop that specializes in jackets/repair and they said they would have essentially done the same thing for > $50. What more can you do musicboohoo[1].gif It's still a sick jacket.

^ damn that sucks, how bad was it?

 

honestly, it's been like almost year and I don't even remember scuffing up my jacket after I hit it with renovateur.

The lady at the leather jacket shop asked if a cat had attacked my jacket/I had bailed off my bike.

You know I was wearing my TOJ at home today (I can't be the only one that does this) and it sort of struck me...since TOJ is moving away from the double-zip, it really makes the true TOJ  / \  cut unattainable for future generations--sort of sad.

A haircut cannot look more Asian American than that

Why are they leaning away from the double zip

post #27773 of 39302
A lot of people like to zip up the lower zipper a bit, Drew was not pleased. I don't like it, it looks like they broke the zipper or forgot to zip it down after they went to restroom (which I believe was the original reason for the double zips in those kind of jacket)

What does the quilt look like on the new bcdr?
post #27775 of 39302
I ordered a navy lamb suede BCDR with single diamond quilt on 1/1, will post pics once it comes (hopefully soon)

Interesting. I always thought the partial zip looked kind of cool.

I have a grey baseball, brown goat A2 and a medium whiskey calf moto 2011 on the way. What should my next TOJ be? I'm leaning towards a black lamb MA-1.

I mean where is the quilt located? Is it going to be like the old BCDR with the quilt on the back, arms, etc.

On double zippers it's harder to get that pin through both sliders without some effort because the sliders may hang at different angles off the tape (it's easy to scratch up your hands doing this and I find it annoying) and you must do it anytime you zip and unzip the jacket. It's most definitely a two-handed operation, whereas a one-way zip feels much easier.
Plus, I find the two-way zip look where people feel compelled to bring that bottom slider up too much to be a bad look, bordering on contrived.

wow. nice photoshop there. Yes, the jacket will look almost just like that with the channel quilt. Was thinking of not bringing the quilting down so far the sleeve on the men's, but now you have me thinking.

Ehh, the new quilting pattern doesn't look nearly as sexy as the old one did IMO. The old BCDR looked way more epic.

Thanks for finding the post Willy.
