    I dealt with you guys 5 years back well before all the drama went down, glad to see you guys are still here and pumping out quality garments as per usual. That being said, bring back the MA-1 in goretex and/or suiting wool please!!!! :D:D:D

    Any word on the belted rider's design? Would be nice to have at least one DR design to have the rear facing sleeve zippers.

    For those that have received their jackets or even Charly/Dan, can you please comment on the amount of veins that are present on the lamb jackets? Trying to avoid the dreaded excess of veins that has plagued some of the ToJ jackets. Would going Calf minimize this issue?

    The sleeves on my Varsity were not veiny enough for comment.

    Guess that would be me. The lamb looks great. Not perfect, but for sure not plagued by a dreaded excess of veins. I guess that is mostly a matter of everyone's opinions, experiences and expectations. This is my first leather so I cannot comment on going Calf other than I don't think I could have with the MA-1, maybe goat.

    @RetroFuture I just received the DR1 in black calf (huge thanks to Charly and Dan!) and the leather is very uniform. Pretty much zero veins, scars, marks or anything like that.

    On a side note, IMO the somewhat typical veins in lambskin only adds character and I personally don't mind them. So yeah, I wouldn't chose calf over lamb only to avoid veins, because they have very different characteristics. Calf has that armor like feeling especially when new, whereas lamb is pretty much instantly soft and drapes beautifully.

    Have you considered goat? Cool texture, no veins, drapes well and it's durable.

    I just received my DR2 in dark wine lambskin and the leather is great. Very uniform and soft.

    I'll post pics when I get back.

    Are you guys mistaking veins for stretchmarks? It's more common in softer/thinner leathers like lamb

    Hi. Would you mind posting some pics of your calf leather please. Is this the 'new' calf falcon is supplying which is meant to be softer? The old calf (which is available on request) was tough as nails and had a sheen to it.

    Thanks.

    @rbnman sure thing, I should be able to take a few pics tomorrow. I believe this is the new softer calf, which is still quite a bit stiffer and more substantial feeling leather than lamb or goat, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

    What are the considerations when choosing between goat and lamb?
