Saw willycheesesteak at Buchon Bakery in his TOJ.
Drew, is the A-1 still available in calf split suede, like the blue suede sample?
are you letting him know for the first time here, in this thread? lol
You guys can say hi to each other... you talk to each other everyday online anyway....
VTG looks great just virgin like that.
disclaimer, related to before: You guys should keep in mind that during my month long R+D process I was purposely abusing the hell out of it ,and doing whatever I wanted to it, it didn't even come inside that month. The more extreme, the better, for the test monkey sample. Just hung on the patio 24 hrs a day..... but you guys should probably take it naturally with your jacket and care for it like any other leather jacket you'd wear.
Nah girlfriend and her friends were in a rush to go.
whoa i think that's the first pic in which the vtg looks and fits perfect.
I'm generally taking drew's route with my MDR VTG. I gave it once over with Obenauf's oil, it was a bit blotchy but after a day it evened out with a light gold colour. I have just left it outside while i go to work, after that i'll apply one more coat of oil, then just like with my natural veg tan belts, I'm going to wear it tough and give it a beating.
Oil, sun and hard living.
I hate being precious with my clothing.
These days, honestly, I've been wearing my blood red (looks like the new spring version, but infinitely better) Margiela 5-zip. My black horse racer needs a coat of Obenauf's right now. And really, it's too cold for just a leather right now, so, I'm going to be switching to my RRL Gamblers (Drew, Jean jacket styles do sell - the Gambler's is all sold out) under a melton wool jacket. So, that is my uniform.
How do you all deal with shirt cuffs under the elastic cuffs? They always get bunched and feel annoying while looking bad...should I just get longer sleeves with whatever I get next that has elastic cuffs?
Drew how do you and Charlie size these VTG's in comparison to Lamb jackets? More space in sleeves, shoulders, chest, mid, or perhaps all over?
Drew, do you still make that VTG? How much does it run for?
It seems like a lot of people didn't get the chesterfield? It sucks that more guys didn't hop on it, I keep finding new ways to wear mine.
