    The leathers this spring were really short in the sleeves, but it looks like they're making up for it this fall!

    That Justice x S2A is in my opinion the perfect perfecto- too sick.

    I like the bomber cuffs and the straight vertical zipper, but if you look at the S2A website, you can see a back view, and the belt doesn't go around the back. Which completely ruins it for me. It's just so busy in the front, and so plain in the back.

    Just curious, why do people always act like horse leather is some grail of leather? I don't' mean this in a disparaging way but more it's coming from my own ignorance. Is it supposed to be nicer looking and draping better in real life? Does it just age better? Just because it's thicker (personally i don't want all leather jackets to be thick and armor like)? Because it's more rare to see than lamb/calf/cow? Is there some "quality" thing? I honestly don't know but it has come up in various threads before where i see a lot of people clamouring for horsehide and stuff like that


    still want that normal leather black 5zip. wanted it for years. prob will never get it based on price but so nice

    from what i've read in the TOJ thread, FQHH (not just horsehide, but front quarter) is extremely tough. Also, it has less of a sheen than other leathers. So more dull, and a tighter grain.

    so if that's what you like, then FQHH is cool. Otherwise it's no better or worse than any other leather.

    Well, i know lamb is the most delicate. I guess compared to other leathers you normally see (lamb, calf, cow) ahhhh. so that's what fqhh means. feel dumb now [​IMG]
