I believe there is a glossy goatskin and a non glossy one. Their pictures could also look like that because of the camera settings.

EDIT: sorry got my answer, sounds like another 3 weeks or so... shit.

Honestly, lead times are way longer than any cut should last at this point so just place the order and fiddle with measurements later as needed.

I owned a black calf 2011 moto briefly and that was WAY shinier than my goatskin jacket, and I think mine is the glazed goat rather than unglazed.  The texture diffuses the light a bit.  But obviously its not matte in the way a washed leather is.

 

Took another shot of my jacket:

I can't decide, this picture has me thinking about getting a black unglazed goat ribbed collar CWU-45 as a final piece instead of a brown Moto. (Together with my black lamb collared CWU and brown lamb A-2). The sizing would be spot on as well since I could just adjust the measurements from the first. I'm thinking the first would work well with with button ups while the second would look great with a sweater underneath and could be worn in worse weather.. I won't receive anything before the ordering closes which makes this harder to decide. Would this be extremely redundant?

Yes, it would be

I personally believe it's redundant.

Seeing as you dress conservatively, you wouldn't get a DR of any sort so I would lean towards a CM or a Moto.

Like 5354 said, why not get a moto or collared moto in the black unglazed goat? It would be less redundant and still awesome. Plus, I feel like everyone who has experienced TOJ really needs at least one rider style jacket.

Also, this is awesome.

Having seen a few shots of your jacket now I'm convinced our leathers are quite different even though they are both billed as dark brown goat. My pictures are a pretty accurate representation (or perhaps it is a nano-shade darker in the flesh). Yours seems much darker and matter. Yours was what I was hoping for to be honest.

emailed Charly with best fitting jacket measurements and my actual measurements for a TOJ0. He suggested 44 with 46 lengths even though 46 sleeve length is almost 3" longer than my actual arms and 1" longer than my best fitting jacket, which has sleeves that are too long. I even double checked with him and he said 46 lengths would be best. I know everyone says to trust Charly, but this seems a little much. What should I do?

post #31902 of 44936
it's because of the elasticated hems on a varsity jacket.

You don't want them to fit bang on because it looks weird.

Sleeves like this always need to be a bit longer.

Trying my best with my own jacket:




It's like a medium brown with a touch of green to it. I actually think my pictures are pretty darn close (at least on my monitor), but as you look at it from a further distance, it starts to look more like the 2nd picture shown. It's definitely not as dark as the olive lamb, at least from what I gather from the pictures.

Is that the Italian Olive calf skin?
