@Potsnu -valid points, man. I totally get why you were hesitant to post box fresh pics now after seeing the MDR before and after breaking in that you posted. That jacket looks fucking great, man. I assume the suede BCDR will break in similarly. Fuck the haters.

Also, for what it's worth, I have 5" cuffs on both my jackets and it is perfect IMO -just enough room for a watch when zipped up, but very snug. I usually unzip my cuffs about halfway though, but I don't really notice a 'bell' effect. I wouldn't want to go any smaller than 5" -especially when you have to accommodate the leather tab on the inside of the convertible cuffs and a watch into the picture. That might just be me.

After some deliberation, I've decided I may just keep my Whiskey MDR. Does anyone have any experience with breaking-in the thick calf? It's quite unwearable at this point...

Would some kind of leather conditioner be recommended?

DR2010 in calf or lamb? I'm getting a BCDR in lamb.

Calf in that case

I hope most of you realize that the jacket didn't break in. Potsnu hit the gym hard and filled it up.

I have a light whiskey calf MDR from a few years ago when it was first available, keep in mind that nothing is going to make the jacket more wearable than actually wearing it and getting through the break in period.

 

A leather conditioner isn't going to do too much but it may help, I used Saphir

post #37267 of 45022
yeah basically wear it all the fucking time

you could try conditioning with lexol and that might help a little, but mostly, wear it a lot. go exploring, get rained on, move around a lot, etc.

Just wear it, it might not be too comfortable at the moment, but that'll change and pretty quickly.

 

Where's it uncomfortable at the moment? My calf MDR was pretty painful around near the back of the neck, but that only lasted a few wears.

I had never experienced calf till I felt my friends' calf moto and holy shit that thing is tough. I used to own a horsehide leather jacket and although the calf wasn't as thick, it sure felt at least 80% of the way there. If the toj lamb is known for being buttery soft, the calf is tough as nails

Can someone comment on lamb vs goat for an ma-1? Heard that the lamb was fabric-like and tbh i'm gonna wear the shit out of this thing so want something that's not going to need to be treated too delicately.

I'd go with the goat...

The lamb is very fragile and you'll only get a couple of seasons out of it..

You don't even own one, wtf are you talking about? The lamb is fine for normal everyday activities and by far the most comfortable.

lol. I'd jus prefer something that can hold up to being worn day in day out - i travel a lot and don't want to worry about the lamb getting worn out.
