    Lot of nice leathers here.

    I've got a FW Rick Stooges hammered lamb from Exploder that kind of kills anything else I've ever considered. I'm not a RO superfan or anything but it definitely makes you realize why that season still commands the prices it does. I just moved to a warm climate and am having the hardest time deciding if I will part with it or not because I know I won't get another shot at one. First world problem.

    Keep it for sure, make it that one outerwear you bust out when it gets cold or chilly. Just because you can't wear it year round doesn't mean you should get rid of it.

    Just like what happens in every other online community when people ask dumb questions without spending a couple moments to search or read.

    Idk I have 3 TOJ calf leathers don't really have any issue with them. The thing you need to know Jbravo is that they don't shave down the leather so they're thick and high quality as intended, they're meant to be worn and last. I got dark whiskey which is probably was the hardest to break in but honestly now it's really fucking nice. Got a red in a soft calf which is really soft and drapes great and bottle green which is Italian calfskin which is probably the highest quality one is really nice.

    As sinnedk said I do like TOJ a lot, but its really just mainly Classic looking jackets with a twist/better details. Im not into the skin tight high-neck anatomic jackets anymore, especially with heavy leather treatments and washes. A brand like Undercover also does a great job mixing the classic with the new.

    I checked out the TOJ link and liked their stuff a lot. What I like the most is that they create custom jackets according to your liking . You can choose your own color, material. The prices are really really reasonable too. Should definitely give it a try.
