    Unc, be sure to do it right. The first pictures must not be shitty cellphone pics straight out of the box with bad lighting otherwise we will be disappoint.

    This is exactly what I was thinking when I read your original description of it.

    The guy who's worn the same pair of jeans every day since March is intrigued (and cheering for a moto version).

    ^ I I too have been wearing the same pair of jeans almost every day since March and I can't agree with you more lol
    not this thread related but decided to get the Glow in the Dark jeans. That counts as grey jeans right?

    One can only hope, man.
    I've discovered my inner Fonz this week, and a veg tanned CM would be an awesome way to reflect that discovery. :slayer:

    Exactly how you mold the collar. Soak the collar/jacket and then keep the collar popped during drying. You can shape it how you will during the process too.

    Was a bit more laid back than that, but we stood there at the post office and admired it for awhile. There is tons of snake on it, you can't even see from the outside how much snake is in it actually.

    There is a collared Moto (I don't know if I will call it a Moto or what, but it's collared and fairly similar to the old CM) in the veg tan coming too. Dan is sending the samples to me in Japan and I plan to mess around with them, see what they do. The veg tan leather is pretty expensive as you can imagine - a little leatherworker-made wallet is well over $100, and the material content in a wallet is nothing. As a leather jacket - pretty high.
    There will also be a banded collar Moto jacket. Design details are not set in stone yet, still deciding on zippers and hardware, but those aren't changes that I think people will have a hard time imagining, if they are different from the sample.

    Nice thing about leather, vs denim - as you wear it hard and try to get it to age, all you gotta do is wipe it down or air it out, and it doesn't get too funky like denim does. If you keep oiling the veg tan, it'll be waterproof as hell too.

    this probably started out as veg tan, 80 years ago (whoever had it probably quit wearing it soon after though, by the looks of it) - I've seen a few jackets like this before. They all get am amberish glow and dark mottling where your hands make contact with it most.
    The TOJ is stiff, so if you got in the habit of crossing your arms and resting palms on the arm accordians you'd end up with insane sleeves

    pics? so that white veg tan wont stay white unless it is object dyed white? is drew offering object dying services for his leathers only?

    those are so awesome. the guys carry a blk light to show customers how the denim glows. was fun.
    its just a coating, according to the SA so id assume it would count as a grey denim.

    Would the veg tan look good with brown boots? Sounds so great.
