i'll also say that the calf is kind of underwhelming compared to the lamb. it just doesn't feel as "luxe" as the lamb did, and i wasn't in as much awe putting this jacket on as i was with the lamb one i sent back (though this can be attributed to the latter having been my first time wearing a mtm item and me experiencing a lot of anticipation leading up to trying it on). having handled both now, though, i'd still pick calf just cause of its sturdier feel (which i feel better suits the "character" of this type of jacket; the lamb was really nice, though).

i'll take some more pictures with just a t-shirt that more accurately show the lengths/amount of crop later

i only added an inch to the body, so it's still decently cropped, but it's not as extreme as the old jacket

and on a side note, to anybody else who has a dr3 - does your guys' dr3's have slightly uneven collars as well? when buttoned down, the right side of my collar overlaps the epaulet more than it does on the left. it kind of bothers me, but i don't remember whether that was the case or not with my old lamb dr3 as well. i hope that what i'm talking about makes sense at all (you can kinda see what i'm talking about in the picture i posted, though, due to the mirror reversing things, it looks like it's the left side of the collar that overlaps the epaulet more than the right).

i also feel like the sleeves got shorter by a quarter of an inch or something, which i know seems pedantic/anal/etc., but it doesn't sit where my lamb one's sleeves did (which were perfect imo) - i'm guessing that this can be attributed to the difference in leathers? or maybe i'm just misremembering how "perfectly" the lamb one fit, idk.

You get this with or without the belt? and if with the belt do you mind posting a fit pic of it with the belt on?

i mean u gotta think its m2m and its a different leather. m2m will deviate by a little bit...its human error not everything will be exactly the same. u shouldve added an inch to the sleeves too imo.

Yeah, looks good. I wouldve preferred maybe 0.5-0.75 more in the sleeves bur ymmv. Congrats!

Any chance of brass hardware on the double riders?
post #1615 of 2082

Charly, do you have any plans on releasing a collared moto jacket with two chest zippers like the 4-zip moto?

post #1616 of 2082
Ever think of bringing back the OG ma-1?

post #1617 of 2082

Super Excited. I just put in my order for a belted DR. This will be my 4th jacket and 2nd from Falcon. Hoping the stock size 48 will be good for me since I always went MTM before.

 

I went with Lamb again since I love how it feels but I did seriously contemplate the calf. Anyone have both and have any input on the two? I might want to get a calf jacket eventually.

Do the dyed (colored) calf leathers tend to differ in stiffness, feel, and texture from the black calf leather?

Would also be interested in this. 4-Zip Collared Moto would be nice.

They're all slightly different in feel.
