On a related not please bring out the winter steez earlier for 12/13.
Had to buy a new coat before the winter stuff released this winter.
you got it. Now that we have new supplies of fabric from Japan, a lot of the problem is solved - we are gonna make a few things for Spring/Summer now - those pants are also gonna be available as shorts - but also soon we will be putting together F/W in advance this year. We used to be subject to seasonal fabric changes here in Korea because the markets don't operate in advance fabric-wise, but in Japan the fabrics I want seem to be available year-round.
Hope you guys are ready for a whole lot of whisky pics! I bought PDinh's Collared Moto in Medium Whisky calf, which is a really beautiful jacket. Unfortunately the arms are a bit short for me, and it's a just a bit too slim when zipped so I'm probably gonna put it on B&S (size 46 BTW), but first some nice high res pics of that famous TOJ quality:
These pics are in sunlight so you can see the nice depth that the leather has. Last pic is in shade just to show the difference. Whisky calf looks great under bright light IMO.
I hope you slapped PDinh when he sold it to you (before graciously accepting your new jacket), it's damn near criminal for someone to sell something that pretty.
welp, what we've got is some new black and (very) brown goatskin - available on the Bombers as well. It's got the kind of texture that aeglus' whiskey goatskin bomber has, but a nice pliable, soft hand. It's like a ever so slightly tougher, pebble textured lambskin kind of. It'd also make an interesting rider's style jacket, like a 2010 DR or something.
Also, a chocolate brown horsehide, and the aforementioned re-up on dark whiskey.
I think there's a decent supply on the goatskin, but the others are limited to the stock as usual. graphite grey, bottle green, dark blue, and red Italian calfskin are also still available as of last week. All of these leathers mentioned in this post are great and about as good as it gets.
Will these colors be available for the collared moto? Edited by Aeneas - 2/12/12 at 7:34am
