Damn, that looks nice. Makes the decision between the oxblood cxl and brown midweight much tougher
@scb you can do it!
@CharlieAngel stop by anytime! The new studio will have its opening event on 8/10
@FrankCowperwood it's going to look awesome on you, and this leather is freaking bulletproof. Thanks for ordering it!
@lbrig well, they've got two very different weights. The Midweight is fairly thick but very soft. It's softer than any horsehide that I've seen from the likes of Schott or Vanson. The Oxblood Chromexcel is more or less like a leather suit of armor.. but it will age like no one's business and will give enough wear for about three human lifetimes. The color on Oxblood is pretty unstoppable.
The really great thing about the heavyweight front quarter horsehide is that it does soften considerably with wear. So not only do you feel like you're wearing dragon skin, but it also molds to you - much like heavy denim. This is all based on my experience, though.
Oh definitely, and this CXL has so much freaking oil in it, it should mold and break in pretty quickly.
