    it does look dark brown but it's probably due to a combination of the lighting and the camera trying to compensate for it but failing. if anything blame the camera.

    This. No more discussion about the picture, please! It's just poor lighting.

    Thanks. I know you like the black CWU, whiskey 4 zip, brown goat 4 zip MDR, and brown A-2. Mind telling us if there are any others that you consider to be among the top TOJ makeups ? Not just the quintessential ones, but the ones you consider to exude the most swag.

    There needs to be a CWU advanced user group because I have some questions but don't want to mess up the thread.

    good question and I should've addressed the other question like this a few pages back but I've lost the post now, the one asking why so many people go for the same makeup as the sample colors, there's definitely more than just those.

    I'd say, off hand;

    2010 DR, basically all of the available colors, but I'm not cracked up on the idea of cream/off white - skip that one if you want my opinion.

    Lamb: black, brown, navy, whiskey, sand, bottle green, olive green, cream/off white, medium gray, light dove gray.

    Calf: black, brown (light, medium/standard and dark), navy, olive green, bottle green.

    Goat: dark brown, black.

    Horse: medium brown, dark brown.

    If you want the best of the best of that list, I'd say the two green Italian calf leathers are insane quality leather, if you want something solid but not yet done before, go for the goatskins, and if you want the standby, black lamb of course

    Moto - black or brown calf or goat, or brown horse; whisky or sand tan if you can swag it

    MDR, I like the 4-zip version, get it in black or brown goatskin, or one of the calf colors, or black lamb

    QDR, all the lamb colors work, the two green calfskins, skip the goat and horse for this model. You want something softer that lets the leather undulate from the many stitch lines on this jacket, it's an amazing effect. Black lamb is standby here again

    A2 Bomber - black or brown lamb, or black or dark brown goat

    CWU-45 - black lamb

    Bball - tan or grey calf suede

    A-1 Bomber - colored lamb suede

    T-1 and T-3 jackets - colored lamb suede

    am I missing any?

    Among the 2010 DRs, Willy Cheesesteak's whiskey, and that other dude's sand tan are my favorites. :satisfied:

    The CWU looks a lot better in the fitpic then it does in the other one. Nice.

    On my screen it looks dark chocolate brown, so I see where you are coming from.

    On the fence about changing my order to a black goat 4ZMDR (these acronyms man).

    This new goatskin still so soft that the zips could easily scratch the leather? I recall someone saying the new goat was a bit tougher than lamb.

    Also, mocked this up from one of Aeglus' photos to help envision the black:
