    rbnman - thank you for your concerns and to ensure some confidence for you, I decided to eliminate one of the workshops who made the classic belted DRs along with the BCDRs due to some inconsistencies in production and limited the rider and bomber jackets to separate facilities to ensure consistent details and workmanship. The new belted DR will be obviously coming from the same guy who makes all our riders jackets so I don't think you have to worry too much in terms as mentioned.

    cheers!

    Discovered some nice calf hides today - navy and a dark walnut. The navy is limited to only about 5 jackets worth but has the texture and feel of a thick lamb hide, semi-mate finish with a slight warm and pliable texture. Definitely a great looking hide with natural dye colouring and texture. The dark walnut has very little gloss/sheen and thus the texture to this leather makes it a bit more "naked" as the vendors described and is incredibly smooth with very little grains on the surface texture. Slightly colder feel and feels fucking tough as nails.

    Just to update the calf color options - black, brown, oxblood, dark walnut and navy (limited). I will continue to add to this list whenever something new and interesting comes up.

    Lamb suede color options - black, brown, olive, khaki, wine, red, dark grey. Lamb suede hides are smaller than leather hides, so based on your sizing and measurements, you would have to inquire with Charly to see if we can make it happen in lamb suede.

    Belted DR should come out soon along with a new possible quilt series and definitely a new military inspired jacket in the works. Also we will be revising the varsity for something a bit warmer and more functional. Keep checking back as we roll with new stuff down the line.

    No calf suede? Charly mentions it in his previous post.

    Ms CWI wants a belted DR, but with the belt delete. :satisfied:

    People slept so hard on the lamb suede stuff in the past (T-1, Harrington, etc). If they ever bring those back, I suggest people kop.

    I'll probably sit tight to see some of the non-leather stuff.

    Have you guys set a date for when you can order a belted DR yet?

    Do you offer Goretex (or other non-leather options) on the MA-1?
