i would say its closer to a dark red with a lil bit of a plum hue. it definitely is a different shade than the TOJ and i prefer it a lot more. i also really like the double inner zip pockets, especially because they are vertical.

how does the new calf feel compared to the old?
post #1008 of 2311
a little less pliable, but still just as nice. it's also just as heavy, but it seems like it will break-in slower than my calf TOJs. that's not a bad thing at all, it might even be better it terms of longevity. it has an awesome grain texture that i don't remember any of my previous TOJs having. i couldn't be happier to be honest with you. the quality of the threading seems a little bit worse than TOJ, but the fit is better than any other jacket i've ordered.

Got my navy calf 4-zip DR2 today. Paid Oct 20th, arrived today (Nov 23rd).

Pictures and more thoughts later, but it's damn near perfect.

Mostly I just wanted to thank the FG crew for keeping to their word. The entire process was cake and hopefully it stays that way as things scale up.

Not even worth bringing the other guy up in this conversation, but feels great to finally have jacket in-hand. No way will this be my only purchase from FG.

I love the colour in that moto.

got my lamb MDR in the mail today. paid on 10/19.

 

only complaint is that i had wished for snaps on the upper and lower lapels, but a minor detail and i am very happy overall with the jacket. i do not understand the complaints of the lamb being light or thin, the jacket feels fairly substantial to me (i have only handled calf leathers). the second you open the box the smell of leather is overwhelming. fit out of the box is obviously not perfect but i have included fit pictures as well.

 

as evidenced by the photos the jacket has a fair amount of veins which doesn't bother me at all and is practically invisible when worn. considering i had mtm and not a stock size the turn around time from payment to jacket in hand was incredible. look forward to my next purchase.

Just got my calf DR1 today (size 44). Really well made, leather is thick and heavy. Seems to fit pretty well right out of the box.

 

I'm really disappointed with rear facing zippers being announced 5 days after placing my order. I contacted Falcon the day of the announcement at the possibility of altering my order. I was told it was too late because the hides were cut already as they try to complete orders as fast as possible. That's awesome, I'm all for that. With that understanding, I offered to pay extra to replace the sleeves on the original jacket with a new set with rear facing zippers. However, even that wasn't possible. Maybe I'm being unreasonable, but at this price point I think there should have been some sort of accommodation (especially since this is a stock sized jacket). 

 

I'll be selling this jacket at a loss in order to buy another jacket with rear zippers. It's been worn once for size. Pm me if anyone is interested.

^^That's a pretty good fit. Too often I see riders that are way too tight up top.

You must really dislike the zippers.

Looks better. Do you think the shoulders are a bit wide?
post #1017 of 2311
don't believe so, it hits right where it's supposed to just hasn't settled in yet. lamb while much more pliable than calf isn't some windbreaker that lays on you perfectly out of the box.

i am not a smaller individual, about 185 in that photo at a height of 5'9".

Slightly off topic but does EMS require signature?  If I'm not home when they try to deliver, they won't just leave it at my doorstep will they?

EMS has always required signatures for me. Obviously, this is anecdotal.

Same, I always needed a signature.
