Send to me for long term testing relative to other calf... just saying. biggrin.gif

The Julius jackets are available for long term testing - please see my classifieds.

 

The Julius leathers have a dry hand.  The Julius calf is slightly thicker than the lamb and has a distressed finish.  It isn't as heavy as the Rick calf from this season (which is a plus if you're looking to wear the leather in the spring or summer).

I've been looking for the right stooges for a long time and think I might have finally found it. Thanks @GarleyCavidson for the tip about serie noire. Crazy fast shipping and great service (though I'll probably get murdered by taxes). As he mentioned... it's thick.

Sleeves are of course ridiculously long. I will probably have them shortened to regain use of my hands.

Looks great and you guys got them for a great price. Grats!

Excellent Stooges lately, wow

And yeah, I recommend having the sleeves shortened - can't believe I waited four years to do so, made the jacket a million times more wearable. I'll bet Zamb could help you out with that

^My thoughts exactly, gotta give him a call. Thanks for sharing yours. Did they move the zipper?
post #11438 of 17209
Yep, no way to have it shortened from the shoulder with the construction of the Stooges. Left the full zipper intact and had it moved up, the long zipper is part of the aesthetic. Kept the sleeves long but not obnoxious, had them tailored to just above my thumb knuckle

@artishard116, looks great! :fistbump:

 

@nicelynice, I suppose I could go to Denim Revival and get the sleeves shortened... I'm a bit hesitant as it's so new... but the zipper makes the end of the sleeve really stiff (and it pushes up on my hand) so I'm really tempted to get it done.

I highly recommend it, just snapped a picture to give an idea of how the balance looks (excuse the pajamas and the vuvuzela). Regained the use of my hands
