    If I can't get my wife to use her new camera, I'm sure that there will be a picture or two of me in our coverage of Pitti starting next weekend. I plan to be wearing this jacket a lot. The thing is completely broken in - elbow creases, shoulders have relaxed, etc... the whole deal.

    Do you actually work Obenauf's LP into an entire jacket? That's a lot more surface area than a pair of shoes or boots. Or do you use the oil? It seems like you'd risk unevenness and splotches using the oil.

    I get what you meant though, you want a more substantial leather that feels like armor, built like a tank, and ages in a nice way. Although I really think you need to handle some nice thicky juicy lamb leathers. Some definitely have that flimsy feeling, I feel that everytime with rick hammered lamb leathers, but I know theres some nice thicker julius leathers that have the feel you expect from leather.


    Kangaroo is really spectacular for something thin though, its probably the toughest? I know CCP made one with titanium gloves and nobody is gonna touch that badass level wise.

    sorry for a shameless plug. but buy my lambskin jacket from Zam Barrett and you'll see that lambskin can be with the right treatment - as Zam did.

    Yes, I don't think this style is as extreme or unwearable as many SF users seem to. e.g.

    It can be worn very modestly. I think it's cool.

    Probably the best leather blazer fit I've seen but it still looks weird to me.

    I think a lot of people can't pull this kind of item off. But if you're thin and have a casual-rock style, it can add a lot and be very versatile.

    That is not the same jacket I posted, btw :eek:

    Yah that last fit pic of the leather blazer looks awful. Makes the guy looks 20-30 lbs heavier.

    That's because it's too big. The long shirt emphasizes this.
