Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 1853
I kinda agree that the TOJ lamb is glossy and thick, despite being soft, and therefore it gives a classical vibe that could be bikerish in certain designs. If you don't want this, I highly recommend the new TOJ goatskin. It's thinner, lighter, more matte, and has a slightly distressed feel. Would be great in a double rider type design.
From my experience, that kind of suede is suede with a coating applied to give it the 'burnished' look. Coincidentally, this comes off if some drunk chick spills her rum and coke on the left toe of your new pair of burnished suede shoes and you try to clean it. For example. Whereas I think that blistered leather is actually leather with some type of chemical applied to crack it, so it's not suede at all. The definitely handle very differently.
