I'm inclined to say navy would work, but not entirely sure since the raws don't have much wear in them yet. So there wouldn't be too much contrast between the jacket and jeans for a while.

I would get navy. Black jackets look better with black pants generally. It also probably won't go with your brown boots.

If you are referring to the blue lamb, it will look something like this (minus the collar):

the lamb there looks a lot darker than i thought it was; i remember seeing it before and thinking it was a lot lighter, which is why i was thinking of going with the dark blue calf instead (saw it here and thought it looked really good)

It depends on the lighting, I would call it a dark to medium blue. The calf is darker, but the lambskin isn't "light" in my opinion.

True all depends on the lighting. Charly advised me that the lamb in navy is darker than the calf.

Blue leather is fucken sick, but i can't wait for the burgundy to come. anyone know what it would look like? If it's anything liek swooc then its winnah.

Hey Drew - any chance of the VTG leathers making a comeback?

How do you guys feel about an olive green lamb moto compared to the brown (silver zips on both)?

 

I have been back and forth between the two and thought some other opinions may help. I'm typically wearing brown boots, indigo jeans, and a brown messenger. With the brown moto I had thought it may be too much of one color.

Speaking of the VTG, I'm in socal all next week on vacation, and I'm thinking about the VTG being my primary jacket while I'm there. But I'm weighing the deal:

Pros:
lots of sun
good temps for wearing it
rain unlikely
i love this thing

Cons:
it's vacation, and bar stains etc are a possibility
my friends historically do not take care with my stuff.

so those cons will make it hard to just be chill.

Maybe I'm not being Zen enough about this jacket, but TOJ friends, guide me.

^ that jacket is not meant to be babied, the more worn it gets, the better. go for it, those cons are actually pros
