    two shoes - I think the jacket and fit are perfect. Try popping the collar, I tend to prefer mine that way, it creates neater lines down from top of collar do the lapel. The cuffs are a problem - they gape open because sleeves are too long - you can either get sleeves shortened (probably a PITA) or add a snap in the middle.

    btw, no-zip cuffs are not a customization of the pattern, it's part of the pattern that Drew designed for the VTG jacket.

    OK, but comparing the VTG to this is kind of apples to oranges.

    Meego I've never found the lamb to be fragile, I'm not sure what you guys are doing that makes you worry about it so much.

    I got scuffs and holes on my black lamb (sorry Drew) and it looks fine. The blueish-grey flesh adds to the cool factor. If tough you mean no visible scar evar, :/ but if you are just looking for something that is going to protect you when you hit on sharp/hard stuffs lamb is good enough.
    Remember this is not really a protective gear though

    I don't understand what this means. My point was that it's part of the pattern, not a modification. Would a VTG jacket with snapped cuffs look any better if the sleeves are too long? I doubt it. The problem is that sleeves are too long, the gaping cuffs are just a symptom of the problem. Either that or there is a real defect with the way the cuffs are cut but I don't think that's the case.

    The VTG was designed the way that it was due to the material used. Those design changes do not translate well to this much softer leather. I think the VTG would work better with longer sleeves snapped on, though it might actually just break your hand off of your arm.

    While I do appreciate your opinion, I have to disagree - based on personal experience. I own several ToJ, some with zipped cuffs and the UMDR with snapped cuffs - and find that this design element translates very well to lambskin and is essential to the design of that jacket. IMO a zipped cuff would be very incongruous with the rest of the design (no zips on hip pockets) and wouldn't work.

    We just ran into some more [COLOR=FF0000]red calfskin[/COLOR].

    If you want it, hurry up because I don't know how long it'll last.

    Just got my red 2010DR in at the office. Calf is stiff as all hell but it looks unreal and got the fit absolutely perfect this time. Can't take a photo of the fit at work, sorry!

    Hopefully this pic will do.

    The red in person has a darker hue than the pic shows because of the lighting. It is darker than Aeglus' 2010DR but not as dark as the one on the front page of the galleries IMO but close.

    In love with this jacket already.

    So exciting...girlfriend has gone to the Post Office to pick up my artishard rider. Shipped from Korea on Friday morning, delivered to Ireland on Monday morning. That's some insanely quick shipping!!

    Red DR looks great, hope it fits as well as it looks.

    OK so I got my red calf 2010DR today!

    Drew, this jacket is amazing. On another level. People shouldn't hesitate before pulling the trigger on the red calf - it's absolutely stunning - so much colour and texture. The fit couldn't be more spot on for how I wanted it - I only slimmed the sleeves down from the fit of my Lamb MDR.

    Quick fit pic (more to come at a later date)

    Very hard to get the colour right in a photo. It's darker and waxier looking than that.
