you hate alcantara?
post #28322 of 42028
You like fake suede?

It's okay for linings as it's reasonably durable. I've seen it in cars. Would not recommend for an external surface.

I appreciate those of you who pointed out that Drew and company had created a bag similar in style to what I had proposed (great minds etc.). I'm dissappointed though as I sense Drew and company do not like to repeat themselves so the odds of that bag re-appearing seems neglible.

I checked the gallery and did not find a carry-on style so i"m still hopeful for that.

The seabag probably deserves a re-sampling but I can't be bothered to do it. Last time the turnout was disappointing. I have the feeling the Helmet Bag might meet the same fate and pinedust will end up buying the one off sample, like a new-generation aeglus. lol.

Nah I wanna throw down

How much?
post #28330 of 42028
What ballpark are we talking on the helmet bag if you put it into regular production?
post #28331 of 42028
Is there a breakdown of the different characteristics of the leathers?

Specifically lamb vs calf vs goat on the moto. Hard to go thru 945 pages of this thread. Thanks!

They're obviously not jackets for really riding a bike in, but lamb falls nicely on your right out of the box, you can wear it a little slimmer because it stretches and doesn't crease hard in your elbows or pits like the harder leathers do, and it looks really fucking cool when you have a Bomber in A-2 style but it's cut trimly, see what BoO is doing this season (and what I've done for 2 years now with the Bomber - I<3Bacon wears the very first prototype and wears it well, it may not even come across slimly enough in pics but it definitely is, because it was made for me
) The thick lamb we have (which is all of those colors except the red, which is mid-thickness) is something really nice, not run of the mill stuff. That's why I tend to use it on all sorts of things, like varsity jacket sleeves, coat trimmings, there will be more; it's 'ours' if anything were. Other makers make leathers in Korea here using the same garment leather sources that we do, like Geller, etc, but they don't step up the extra $1-2/square to the nicer lamb that we use, because a larger sized leather jacket with detailing can be 50 squares per jacket. They tend to stay with the thin Italian nappa hides that are more standard and run fairly cheaply, it's genuine leather as opposed to full on aniline dye leather like I prefer to use, which has a transparent, deep finish with several color layers and a full grain, as opposed to the painted-on opaque finish that covers blemished or split-down hides.

if you could see my MMM leather in person, this question is not even a question - the jacket looks cool because it's been worn to death for almost 12 years, but it's not high quality. The MMM calf is about one to one with the TOJ stuff on the topside finish though I might be edging the MMM out a bit, it's hard to tell since there isn't an unwrinkled spot on my MMM anywhere (our calf is near flawless in the hide and we pay a huge premium for that) but the MMM is very thin for calf, not even 3oz, more like 2oz (about 0.6-8mm, it's really quite thin), the lining is cheap cotton+viscose (that has gaping holes all over, and I have to stuff the strands of sleeve lining back into the sleeves), all the seams around the zippers and placket are just sewn and then excess edges are cut - when the seams break away from the stitching there's nothing to do about repairing it cleanly that way.

The jacket is missing the little flashing details of leather that 'hide' the zips like on my TOJ jackets, etc, and the folded over/sewn seams. The MRS zippers are nice on the MMM, but pound for pound the YKK Japans are about as good functionally - which is why MMM themselves moved to the same YKK zips later on. If you ever look at the Junya X Vanson leathers, you see they use the same exact front zip as we do. It's the same part in a bright finish.

Yes, I have made this exact post once before.

However, I actually don't think there have been a great deal of posts of goat on Moto styles, but I know they exist. I know theres a dark brown goat moto running around.

Oh there it is: http://www.styleforum.net/t/217855/the-new-official-toj-thread-2011/22635
