    This is far from being over conditioned yet.
    I'd not add any more oil at this point, but wax...yes.
    As said, I have taken it veeeeeeeeeeeeery easy with the oil.
    Only one thin coat of mink oil applied so far.
    Wax balsam is now applied, and this will be the final coat for now.
    Yes, I brush it quite a bit now, but do not intend to do that much in that future.
    I feel it helps the breaking in process a bit, but I might be wrong here.

    Get the bomber. I was one of the advocates of bringing back the fur collar and so I feel bad that I haven't taken the plunge on one. With the addition of the wind flap, re-styled pockets, and collar, its the perfect bomber by a lot. Willy cheescakes recent photo in the wywt thread proves just how fantastic it. Btw, your whole outfit in that shot worked perfectly together and on you, well done.

    I hope the bomber is around long enough for me to make some money and pick it up...

    I'm sortof curious why the recommendation to go with jeans and a button down/t-shirt is the bomber over a moto, as it seems like most of the moto fit pics are people wearing jeans and either a tee or button down. Any insight?

    The most common fit pic with any jacket is a tee/button down with jeans, so I don't really see your point. But I think both are fine, the moto being a little more fashion forward and the bomber being more conservative

    My point is just that I've seen a couple people say "I wear mostly jeans and button downs/tees, should I go with a moto or a bomber?" and people say things like "Bomber sounds like it would totally fit your style." It seems like a bomber fits pretty much any style, to be sure, but I was just wondering if there's anything beyond it being a safe recommendation that causes that reaction.

    It's also because of the versatility of the item. With a moto or MDR you can't wear it with dressier shoes or a business casual outfit. The moto and MDR look better with sneakers and beat up/distressed boots.

    Shryke and Uncontrol are like the Tomax and Xamot of TOJ MDR's

    Got my very first compliment on my varsity today by some random middle-age dude, riding MUNI. Dude even had to pinch the leather...took me off guard. He was like "custom-made?" and I was just like "yeah."

    Now only if it did the same with random girls...haha

    I have applied 2 thin coats of Obenauf's oil, and planning on doing another, as i have been baking this jacket in the Aussie sun. For every bake i oil it back up and wear it around the house.
    After this last oil I'm going to put a thin coat of bees wax as a finisher.
    The jacket is already looking awesome, here's a couple of progress shots.

    First day:

    After sun and two coats of oil:
