so oiled calf stooges and reverse cow stooges are the ones to go for

I liked washed lamb but it is more delicate, the basic calf used to be pretty nice to look at, not sure now that lots of jackets look like Balmain.

The washed lamb is what I have and I really like it.  It is really soft though, I'm not sure how it'll age.

 

I'm still tempted by that shearling but I feel like shearlings are something that would see little use for the price (too hot to wear in a bar, etc).

My stooges are regular lamb and it is very supple, I love it. It is more wearable in California too and easier to layer.

the unofficial rule is that the one you own is the best one

Admittedly, I bought the lamb because I couldn't find the oiled calf.

i had and sold the oiled calf but got like 3.5k so i couldn't refuse

Checked out the website and saw this right in the front page, can you provide details on the jacket? Is it custom and is that shearling on the collar?

This is a Vanson Custom CHP with a removable black mouton shearling collar.  If you like this jacket, you might also want to check out the Aero J106 in Horween C/X Front Quarter Horsehide.  Vanson and Aero's leathers break in very well, displaying a lot of character, color, and grain.  To give you an example of how these leathers break in, here is an Aero Sonoma Cafe' Racer in Horween C/X Front Quarter Horsehide with five months of wear...

I liked the feel of the oiled calf Intarsia that I owned briefly FWIW.
