So I was just taking a look at my lamb L17 today which I haven’t worn in a few months, and noticed these faint white looking marks. Is the leather drying/cracking from storage? Should I treat it with something? I know it’s minor, but don’t want it to worsen and become more noticeable.

I would highly recommend conditioning the leather with a high quality neatsfoot oil or similar product. Likely what is happening is the finish from the leather is starting to show it’s age and it needs a little love. Nothing to be concerned about. I have restored multiple pairs of leather boots.

Personally I would take that money and save up for a preowned L01. You can find them from 1500-2500 on Grailed in great condition.

What are folks' thoughts on the Coach moto jacket as a more affordable option vs the L01?
if something pops up in your size (they run small), cop a Blackmeans leather jacket of Grailed instead. They aren't super common, but they're just as high quality - if not nicer- than SLP is. Blackmeans calf feels thicker/sturdier to the touch, but I don't think they make lamb ones. My last fit pic was with a calf blackmeans

And the coach jacket is just as nice as an L01, at least from when I tried it on in store. Once you get above ~1K retail diminishing returns start to kick in and quality is basically the same

Blackmeans quality is insane, the Blackmeans x John Elliott collabs are great as well (I have two and they are heavy AF). Another brand to check out is fine creek leathers, their Leon custom is amazing.

I genuinely have this jacket and I love it. I have tried on the L01 several times, including the day I purchased the Coach jacket, and while it compares favourably the main benefit to the L01 is the higher quality lining and YSL brand clout/flex factor for sure. The Coach feels much nicer than the high street brands like Sandro and Kooples equivalents, and IMHO is much nicer than my friend’s Schott jacket. Another friend has a Dior biker from a few seasons ago and I think it holds up well to that too.

glad to see another blackmeans fan in here. They got a few hella cool videos on YT if you're into their mindset and whatnot. I've been debating copping a pair of their leather bikers- the trousers- but I'm not sure if I can rock em enough to make it worth it for me

regarding one specific model of the teddy jacket:
white collar, white cuffs,
black leather trim on shoulders and pocket slashes
is the above limited to a specific year / season? i have not seen that iteration lately on the website (most common is black and white, red and white, and all black [black collar, black cuffs, black leather trim])

thanks!

I have NWT D17 M /BC/LW Black SIZE 31, looking to sell by weekend if anyone interested. Otherwise I will just taper the boot cut and keep it.
