    For those dudes who own both Bombers+ DR2010 or MDR or CM. Did you use the same measurements?

    DR's and CM's are somewhat similar but bombers different from them.

    Chatting with my friend just now about leathers and it made me wonder...what do I need next? I already have a medium whisky calf 2011 moto and a dark brown calf mdr. I haven't really experienced what TOJ lamb is like or what black leather would look on me (I know...).

    Getting itchy to get a leather.

    Black cwu-45 or brown a-2 bomber? Leaning towards the a-2 as I like the shearling and seems more simple. Though it looks as if without the shearling, the cwu-45 has a nicer collar? What do you guys think.

    The A-2 can make you look like you're trying a bit too hard if you've not got that Asian/Black man swag. When I see white boys wearing an A-2 I instantly think "WW2 re-enactment enthusiast". That's what makes the CWU-45 such a good alternative imo given that they haven't ever issued it in leather. But take that for what it's worth, for all we know you can make it work.

    I know it's part of the original design, but I'm just not feeling the large cargo pockets on the CWU still, which got me to decide on an A-2

    The black lamb is insanely nice, it's a good deal softer than your whiskey calf (as intended) from what I remember. Completely different texture and drapes really well too. I second Charly, think you need to go for a bomber man (black CWU45 or brown A2). I want a CWU45, waiting on those Christmas red pockets lol [​IMG]

    Oh as in, "the thought of that just blew my mind", sounds amazing.

    Black suede is one of those things you never think of

    Thanks

    Im going to wear a navy three piece wool suit, MTM from that Melbourne outfit that PG uses.

    Will wear with black / white macclesfield tie, black captoe C+J oxfords and a white hidden placket poplin shirt.

    Im a pretty happy man

    I have so much to sell, lol. Also I really want to buy my fiancee more Schneider, which she loves. Gotta get her a nice handknit to chill in, so she stops stealing my dries charcoal robe cardigan.


    Black suede is so nice. Im going to wear it with schneider scarves and a white hanes in winter, with black raws and margiela / carpe boots (would kop like 2 more pairs when they come up on various B&S)

    Yeah, Ive been thinking alot about my wardrobe lately, pretty much want to have it finished in a month or two. I dont really need anything else, have some nice jackets, some nice outerwear, alot of cardigans, a couple of bomber jackets, good boots / shoes / sneakers.

    What Drew says is 100% correct, and I pretty much wear this everyday: White T / Buttonup, Raw Jeans / Overdyed Jeans, White Sneaks / Black Boots, in Winter its with an Schneider Scarf and a black lamb bomber, in spring / autumn its cardigans and handknits, in summer its as is, with a cotton cardigan handy for night time. Nothing wrong with a uniform, at least its damn comfortable.

    I have 4 leather pieces, a suede, and a peacoat. When I started, I wanted a brown bomber and black leather of some kind. Then I saw the whiskey. I bought the horsehide for the heck of it. This is what happens when you 'inquire' just for to get more info, next thing you know the Paypal is sent.

    I'm done for now with the 'streetwear' side. I'm allocating the next $4,000 or so on MTM shirts and balmorals.

    I doubt anyone on this board 'needs' anything to this extend.

    My leather road path would probably be something like

    Grey MDR then Brown A-2 then Black CWU-45 or Moto.
