No not ewww, the aging is part of lamb's charm. I was once told high quality NZ lamb wrinkles like that...stretch marks? I guess it is a bit ewww.

fantastic to hear

Pretty sure that was a pic of a brand new jacket

What do you guys think about Drew saying "stouter" guys should get something like a moto rather than a rider? Would short and a semi-muscular build constitute as "stout"?

I've wanted an MDR for a while now but recently I've been thinking about dressing more for my body type rather than just wearing pieces I like. Shifting my aesthetic from what I would want to wear more to what looks better on me.

Yeah that's not right, if the grain wasn't naturally there to begin with, it's not going to age to look like this. It depends on the batch of leather than the jacket was made with.

that pic with the grain like that...

that's how it came (not that it wasn't worn already in the pic, as it was and you can tell from the creases on the arms)

you get that type of grain sometimes, but the grain that you see from wearing it is completely different. you don't get the vein-y look
it just looks a little more like the goat grain, if you're familiar. 

 

 

EDIT:

worn lamb

fresh vein-y grain

semi-worn vein-y grain

The jacket is a few years old, but after some thought, I believe this is correct. For example, I have brown and black lamb that does not look like that. My brother has the navy lambskin and it is around a year old. It looked the previous picture when it came, and still looks like that now.

Actually, all my TOJs look pretty similar to the day they came, the leather has just "molded" so to speak.

Lots of unwarranted reactions in these last couple pages from the image of omgcookielol's old black lamb TOJ DR 2010.

 

This is the exact same jacket some time later after that original pic was shared:

 

 

 

The grain of the lamb isn't nearly that pronounced; that's probably just from the photo lighting/angle. It's one of those visual effects that pop out upon closer inspection. Gives the leather a lot of character.

^ Ewwww


To be honest, I've been pretty ignorant about my own lamb jacket, once getting caught stumbling home from the East Village in NYC to Battery Park being pounded with rain the entire way. I just pulled on the attached hood and suffered, not thinking the leather would be affected. Thankfully, it doesn't look anything close to that pic above.

But yes, I am curious as well as to what I should be doing to maintain the leather now.http://www.unionmadegoods.com/UNIONMADE_Harris_Tweed_Golden_Bear_Barracuda_in_Charcoal_Herringbone_7624.html

you dont know what you are talking about. that aging + the grain effect is awesome. people would pay a lot of money for that look. it may not be your cup of tea but you response is ignorant. you cant always expect to have clean cut looks.

great jacket

That 2010 DR is beautiful. Can't wait for my first lamb jacket to look like that, its lack of texture is boring.
post #35277 of 40729


I would pray for a jacket to show up with this much texture and character. Beautiful.

Wow that looks amazing. What color/leather combo is this?

It was a year (or two?) old when I bought it from the previous owner, but the texture on the body is natural. Really beautiful effect.

Likely sarcasm, but I'll bite - not new. satisfied.gif

This is right, so just give your leather a look if you're concerned. If it was there this whole time and you didn't notice, then you should understand that it wasn't a big deal after all. satisfied.gif Nice touch for people like me, though.

Yeah guys, it's not like quilt stitching. They're small depressions on a soft black leather jacket. Step back and think about the angle/lighting/etc of the picture and how that might effect the appearance. The effect is pretty subtle, but the overall effect is pretty great when you can have the grain all over the body like that.
