    I think in the case of that intarsia, the thin leather gives it it's appeal, makes it drape much better. Same leather as the ones on the scuba I poster earlier.

    Is that always so bad? I prefer lamb because it is softer and thinner than calf. If it is garbage quality thin leather then no, that isn't good. But I have some leathers that are heavy and some that are light and don't distinguish between them quality-wise based on that characteristic.

    Also Kunk, since you've probably handled it as well, what non-distressed leather are they using for the stooges this season? Probably not oiled calf since you only said the only RO worth it right now is the scuba leather.

    I know they have distressed black and grey version, which is probably lamb.

    Then they also have the stonewashed.

    Looks like a nice piece, but how comfortable are those to wear? They look very thick and rigid. I wouldnt want something like that.

    The scarstitch is by far the easiest & most comfortable CCP leather to wear. It's pretty stiff when new but breaks in nicely.

    Here's the brown Julius FW06 moto that winq gave me this week. Rare color, you guys might've seen me wearing the black one a few years ago, same jacket.

    I'll write a little more about it in a second.
