^I'm sure it's not really a big deal. Have you ever flipped through magazines like Free & Easy or Lightning? All that vintage stuff looks better with some abuse than fresh off the assembly line and they look great decades later. Anyways most of the best jackets here are the ones that are well worn and lived in like Aeglus' red DR. I know it isn't as delicate as suede but it's still lamb which isn't regarded to be as durable as other leathers. I think the only worry with suede is getting dried out our discolored by the sun. And that won't stop me from wishing for a black suede M-65 Any news on sunglasses/eyewear? I've been wanting to pick up some NDG-1s but I've hesitated on buying them since I'm curious to see the TOJ offerings.
