do you dare to commit to wear a single jacket for a month through all your waking hours?

    Yes, pretty thin topcoat. As if the dye only just barely penetrates the leather. Scratches go right through the dark brown and bring out the natural color of the leather.

    Should make for a very interesting evolution in a few years. I’ll bet it will look pretty cool.

    That's how BK Liberty HH works!

    BK Liberty is very crispy with lots of memory which paired with the thin top coat leads to accelerated patina. I really like that leather.

    As soon as weather permits I am in. But still over 20 Celsius here... Autumn is not arriving any time soon.

    That’s what I do anyway, wear a leather jacket for a full A/W season. Last year and probably this one too will be the Himel goatskin Grizzly, the creases on the sleeves are so nice.

    I'm up for the challenge. I've had my Schott 613SH for almost a year (purchased it during the Black Friday sale) and haven't seen much break-in despite wearing it fairly often. I want to achieve the amazing Schott HH graining I've read about here.

    I'll be spraying it with a water bottle and wearing it daily as much as possible, even if it's not the jacket I wear out and about.

    Here's its current state. For some reason, the left sleeve and front panel are showing much more creasing and graining than the right sleeve/panel, even though I'm right handed. A little bit of graining is starting to show on the upper right of the back.

    I've been wearing the Aero Lee most of the day, except in the morning when it was far too cold for it. So technically I've been cheating though not a lot.

    Either the way I sit is mega lopsided, the leather is thinner in the right shoulder than the left (kinda feels like it imo) or I just didn't notice this when I got the jacket. Pretty interesting.

    Either way, it's like day 5? Of basically the same outfit

    Sorry for the delayed response—been away. I’ve been only wearing it about one to two hours a day. This jacket has been claimed (in Japanese) to age and to grain and to crease quickly. This jacket so far has demonstrated that claim quite nicely. I’m assuming it’s the tanning process?

    I think generally it fades a shade lighter, looks more grey with some yellow tint

    What's with these tropical plants in each of your photos? Had you opened a botanic garden in your home?
