I'm lusting after that BCDR example, but I'm in Seattle where summer is the only time we don't get rain. If the suede is just not going to work here, then I can ditch any plans for acquiring it (especially since I just got two ToJ leathers last fall, I really don't need another).

It is thick and heavy. It's at least twice the weight or more of my lamb A-2.

cyc wid it, PATIENCE.

This, haha.  At least I've got my quilted duffle.  That thing has been worth ever penny I paid for it.

Winter: I am so getting me a fishtail for next winter

Spring: Actually, I think I want another leather for Fall

Summer: I really need to put down an order before its too late

Fall: Well I am totally happy with moto I own, and maybe this winter won't be too harsh

Winter: ... I am so getting myself a fishtail for next winter..

Has anyone bought a black suede rider of any type? I can't find one in the gallery.

Also, new bag pics look amazing.

It's not supposed to be wild colored and overwhelm your outfit, keep it kind of modest in color. suede jackets look best when integrated with your shirt and pants in balance, rather than being like a black leather jacket.

The T-1 works in it as it doesn't really come off as a leather jacket, but as far as leather jackets go, black leather vs black suede isn't even a question. Black leather, lamb to be specific. It never lets anyone down and it's what we've made our name on for a reason.

60 is leather compatible though which I think was his point (especially if daytime highs are only in the mid 60s).

You don't need a jacket (a sweater would do) but if you are outside sitting on a park bench and not moving around, you probably be a bit chilly. Not going to end up uncomfortable in a jacket at all.

Maybe a touch long, but hardly a big deal. I would have no problem wearing it.

Really lol I thought it was the opposite maybe it is because my sweater is pretty cropped
post #28962 of 40816
Looks fine but it's a poor angle and those pants look way too tight.
