    Dbear posted a comparison between the three leathers not too long ago. Use the search option. It's handy.

    I also don't see why that photo is making anyone want goat.

    That photo could be captioned with any other leather and we'd probably believe it. I can see why that photo might make you want a rider, but not sure what it has to say about leather choice (since the photo has enough noise to hide the texture and is in a position where the leathers would look similar).

    Awesome. Thank you for posting this. Would it be possible to get a better close-up picture? It looks basically identical to the brown lamb, maybe a touch lighter.

    Length is fine on this, sleeves could be slightly longer but thats not a deal breaker at all. Looks good.

    Just picked up my toj02013 from the post office.

    I thought the goat was good--and it is--but the lamb is just on another level.

    I think I'll leave my A2 for outdoorsy stuff and get a black lamb cwu.

    All this time, I've been passing over the varsity jacket style. It never really caught my eye and I recognize it's just a fad that's come back strong lately ... but yours is what I consider a perfect fit. And it's making me want one.

    Dammit.

    How stupid an idea would it be to remove the lining from one of these jackets?

    A) to make it less warm
    B) to avoid the sweating caused by the synthetic lining
    C) to feel the leather against your arms

    Alternately, having a tailor replace it with cotton?


    Sorry if this is dumb

    Very dumb. Bemberg lines nice suits, not cotton.

    What about no lining?

    I only wear them with t-shirts so its not such a big deal with sleeves catching etc

    Is there exposed stitching under the lining that would be uncomfortable?

    Could I just keep the lining for the sleeves and remove the body lining? Since tshirt protects my skin anyway

    Thanks!

    I have no idea why you would ever want to do this. Whatever you're imagining, the result will be much worse.

    Go sleep naked on a leather couch, and upon peeling yourself off in the morning, decide whether or not you think an unlined lamb leather jacket is a good idea.

    Well Ive never seen a pair of leather shoes lined with bemberg

    I suspect id wake up sweaty if i went to sleep on polyester as well

    There are lots of unlined leather jackets out there, some very expensive. I expect because they have to close the seams on the inside of the jacket as well as the outside.

    Heres an example
    http://supertalk.superfuture.com/in...igh-collar-leather-jacket-black-horse-size-m/

    Im interested because I wonder if they may breathe better without lining

    Socks.

    Big difference between that Incarnation and Toj is that the Incarnation is designed to be unlined; the Toj is not. The lining is not causing you to sweat; the fact that you're wearing it in weather that is too warm for you is.

    The lining in shoes is called "socks."
