Edit: Also -- my mom had purchased some lamb leather purse while traveling somewhere. She compared it to my lamb leather jacket, and then she was disappointed.

 


I have another Lambskin jacket and it's hard to believe they came from the same type of animal.


This girl asked me after feeling my jacket (as girls will do) if the leather was real. I was a little annoyed at the question at first until I realized she had probably never felt high quality lamb before.

Got these on friday. I still am awful at picture taking, but felt the need to document these.

Navy lamb quilted double rider

Picture doesn't accurately show the color, but i felt like i needed to get a pic up. This is a bit thinner than my black lamb 2010 dr, but it still just feels and looks great. Nothing will ever tol the black 2010 dr for me, but this is very close.

And my resized baseball jacket.

Felt like my old one was a bit tight from the get go, but sf confirmed it so i reordered. Like this fit a lot more.

Sized up on the toj tote in the background. Good choice.

What's the story with the length of the placket flap on the A-2? willy cheesesteak's is two zig-zags longer than Renalan's, so I presume we have a choice between two(?) lengths?

post #28673 of 39455

Just some more pics and info about A2 -- got it last week, wore it everyday, still bounce2.gif over it.  Bear with me as I do a review for those that wonder about the details.  

 

+ Don't know why it took so long for me to get a bomber--went through 4 riders/motos (sold 3).  

+ The main difference is the fit.  This is basically identical to my moto (but added length to both body and sleeves, as directed), but the fit is pretty different.

+ This is mainly due to the ribbing.  The ribbing tightens everything up (in a good way).  It sort of pulls the bottom away creating a / \ effect, and it makes it so it doesn't feel like the leather is hanging on you.  Also, since there is less leather at the ends of the sleeve and the bottom of the jacket, it's just lighter in general.  Feels good man.  This might be common info, but I didn't realize any of this until I actually got the jacket.  

+ Shearling collar is removable (of course).  It's connected by 3 snaps and 5 bands on the underside and inside of the collar.  

+ Suede patch is perfect--it breaks up the wall of leather--must have.  So is the placket--highly recommended.

+ Sleeves are slim and armholes are high (as intended).  

+ As always, leather is supremely soft and thick.  It definitely has a "wow" factor.  You can tell by the thick rolls in the stacking (pic below) that the leather is substantial.  

 

Anyways, you would think that having 1 black and 1 brown leather is enough, but it never is...never is...

Well great, now I want a brown bomber. How does sizing compare to Riders?

So what size baseball is this one/what are your measurements?
post #28676 of 39455

That bomber is like leather porn right there.

post #28677 of 39455
I think people typically go slightly more relaxed, but you can actually go slimmer if you want because of the ribbing

My bomber has a smaller mid/waist than the rider I have and the BCDR/moto in the pipeline. I shortened the other 3 by just a tad (quarter inch)

Wore my blue suede harrington today, y'all slept on that model. Also, need moar bag updates.

What sneakers/shoes would you guys recommend to go with the blacked out TOJ0 and black lamb 4-zip TOJ MDR? And what do you guys think of these leather nikes as a cheaper alternative to CPs? Could they work with those jackets?
post #28680 of 39455
The looser relaxed fits on the bomber (see drews fit in gallery) looks much better than the tight fits.
