much appreciated.

edit: also-- would silver zippers or gunmetal look better?

Just be aware of how different the calf feels compared to the lamb.

I've read plenty on here about how different it is, but maybe you could provide some insight? you own calf and lamb, right? that'd be great, thanks smile.gif

Lamb is soft and feels "cool" and as it ages it becomes matte in places of wear where the grain wears down. Calf feels more waxy and smooth and gets more wrinkled as it ages.

12.5 weeks in and charly said I could change still but it's another $90 for the tan calf.

for those wondering, he also recommended silver hardware and said there are no current pictures of the tan calf.

Here's a question that I never see come up but that I think is important: where does ToJ source its leather? What sort of ethics, etc? What sort of due diligence and quality assurance?

I'm not criticizing or doubting. Just curious.

Drew has touched on this subject a couple of times I believe. Use the search option and I'm sure you'll find it.

The supple leather comes from bathing the lamb in the blood of its mother

Drew cares tenderly for each lamb from the moment of birth. Feeding, bathing, and nurturing each lamb like it was one of his own.

When a lamb reaches the prime age for "harvesting," Drew heart-achingly steps aside and I step in. With my bare hands, I choke the life out of each lamb as per the sacred rituals of the temple. I do it with great pride in tradition but my weak human emotion cause me to shed a single tear for each lamb's soul I reap.

Once Drew helps to pick me up and carry me off to lament, Daniel walks up to the lifeless corpse and skins the lamb for its supple hide that is used for your jackets. He also sections off the lamb so that Drew may use it in his cooking. No part of the lamb goes to waste.

jk.. but this would be pretty ideal - vertical integration

Hah. I realize in hindsight I shouldn't have asked the ethics question: its irrelevant if you're wearing the baby animal eventually anyways. Just more interested in where the leather comes from... most I've read here is NZ lambs.

Mostly I'm just trying to provoke discussion here on something other than "OMG SHOULD I GET THIS ONE?"

etc.
