Feels like the sizing on dead end jeans are honestly a headache to deal with.

My KIT-RTC (well worn) jeans are a 46 and the measurements of the waist laid flat is approx. 41cm. However on KIT-D (brand new) jeans a size 48 laid flat could be 39 cm. Do KIT-D stretch like crazy? Or is the sizing just ridiculously inconsistent?

inconsistent

the KIT-D fit a whole size small
the KIT-RTC and KIT-BW fit TTS

Kit D doesn't stretch much, and the cut of that model is pretty unforgiving

How do you guys generally clean/condition your CCP leathers? I've never handled Kangaroo or Horse before and usually I just Lexol my Rick leathers (all of which were calf/lamb).

I would strongly recommend against treating them at all. If you need to clean them, just spot clean them. Leather jackets otherwise don't really need much care. Putting something like lexol on a CCP jacket, where the treatments are a big part of the character of the leather, seems like the wrong way to go.

Doesn’t this significantly shorten the life of your leathers?

No, I mean, unless you live in an extreme dry climate and the jacket is in the sun all day, a jacket like my CCP scarstitch, which is pretty much inpregnated with oils, doesn't need to be conditioned for a great number of years.

Congratulations. Your jacket should last you generations - leather jackets = the new Patek.a

could of sworn i read lexol somewhere but i would not recommend that, maybe try otter wax oil to condition it but do keep in mind it may change the "sheen" to the jacket and dull it down.

Do you have the booklet, i think it says something about that in there.

First time post here. Just wanted to share my CCP boots I have. One #19 in CUBS. the other #5 in GOLF. If I recall when I got the #5s at Maxfields years ago, the sales associate said these were made in Goat 🐐 Leather. Anyone have insight if that’s the case?

Sorry for the late post. Hope these pics help. Mind you I’ve owned this pair for ~ 13 years now. Probably only worn these on average 2-3 times a year. And until a few weeks ago, never walked out of the house in these for like 2 years.

Back in the day, I paired these really well with an olive green Cloak trench coat (when Phlokov & Gelderland were still a team) white shirt & dark denim jeans.

These are shorter (about mid-ankle) & a touch narrower last than the Goodyears I bought this year from PNP.

didn't know ccp used goat at any point, neat, boots look great.

why did you wear those only 2-3 per year? add some vibram and wear hard.
Hard to wear for a while with the pinch of the leather right around the toe. So only on special occasions lol
