Definitely agree with you on this. My aw13 for my everyday wear.. takes forever to break in..I love it. Had opportunity to get the mutton, but I already had 2 lamb L01 and the aged calf l01.. it just made sense to keep it at bay with 2 calf and 2 lamb. Must say the aged l01 is super light calf though.. since there is no padding.. I never got to handle or check out the mutton. But it looks great and I hear non stop good things about it.
