Damn, that Navy/Black TOJ0 looks amazing. I might see if I can change mine from the Black/Black.

Yes, we know, and you don't have to constantly remind us.post #32135 of 491336/28/13 at 3:43pmpost #32136 of 491336/28/13 at 3:59pmQuote:Originally Posted by phobicz
I know everyone says it, but the calf is so much more heavier and thicker and stiffer than I expected. Gotta see how it breaks in, but I think I would've been better off with a lamb for my first jacket. But then I haven't experienced a lamb toj in real life so maybe I just think the grass is greener. I've got a Sherwood calf BCDR in the queue and I'm strongly reconsidering a lighter lamb suede instead. But again, gonna see how this jacket breaks in before bothering Charly with order changes.
I wanted to order a BCDR in the lamb suede, but Charly highly recommended against it -- said it would be too loose and floppy for the jacket style; so I switched to calf suede. I have both lamb and calf regular leather jackets, and there is a big difference between them.post #32137 of 491336/28/13 at 4:50pmI ended going with goat, and I still would love to try the lamb and calf. I doubt I'll have a chance too, unless B/S is nice to me in a few months. The reason I didn't go with the lamb is that though it sounds amazing, I'm less a fan of the striations that develop as it ages. Also, I for rider jackets, I will be wearing it the collar up often, and it seems that the lamb loses that ability within a couple years. That's just my thought process though. If I had another couple months, I'd be grabbing either the CWU or A2 in black lamb.post #32138 of 491336/28/13 at 5:29pmQuote:Originally Posted by schrike

Trust Charly. Lamb suede in general is a super lightweight material, definitely no good for a BCDR.post #32139 of 491336/28/13 at 6:43pmQuote:
dammit, I had JUST accepted that I would just wait 4 months and get a toj of some sort off B&S, and then you post this gorgeous picpost #32140 of 491336/28/13 at 7:09pmpost #32141 of 491336/28/13 at 7:30pmpost #32142 of 491336/28/13 at 8:05pmpost #32143 of 491336/28/13 at 8:27pm
What do you guys think of an unglazed goat black CWU-45 or an olive lamb CWU-45?
I know black lamb is the best but I don't have too much black in my style/wardrobe and the black unglazed goat seems to have visual interest at least. Although I think the olive lamb can potentially look amazing - I don't really like the A-2 as much from the pictures I've seen from the gallery.post #32144 of 491336/28/13 at 8:45pmpost #32145 of 491336/28/13 at 9:30pm
Hmm, well I figured Olive Lamb would be a nice alternative to a Brown CWU-45 - brown in some lighting and greener in others; if I'm not mistaken it would be a slightly darker variation of the Olive Italian Calfskin. I already have a brown moto (from another brand, not ToJ unfortunately) and I feel that the CWU-45 could be a bit dressier If I needed it to be and still play nice with some dark denim since I ordered a Diesel Blue Suede BCDR. I don't like black and denim combo as much unless if it was a DR.
