My sincere condolences @Carlos840 on the passing of your father.
Is that a separate room just for the jackets?
No, that's on one of the walls in my office.
There is already sort of a jacket room though, but basically these new wall rails will hold the equivalent of one of my three rails:
It's about saving space and having more opportunity to see jackets.
There are some i rarely wear but love looking at, i might as well have them on my wall.
What's the first jacket on the second rail with mouton collar?
Got it now, I thought you're making some sort of room only for jackets and as soon as I saw that wall I had the idea of decorating it
Did you ever oil or condition either of yours?
nice, is it a drywall or brick wall? if brick wall I think you need more spacer from the wall.
my condolence for the passing of your father
it's a brick wall that has been plastered on top, so it is smooth, no risk of scratching the back of jackets.
@Carlos840 As promised, here's an update of my Sunset - light conditions are not perfect today but at least you can see the aging of the leather:
...If there ever was perfection.
Thanks Robbie, it really looks amazing.
Did you buy it new? If yes was it much lighter?
Did you ever apply any sort of oil/conditionner to it?
How is it in the rain? Does it soak water in straight away?
Oh I mean brick wall painted or plastered is sometime feel cold and moist and might start molding on leather at least in my climate here.
I have stable 30-40% humidity in my house most of the year, i doubt that would ever be a problem.
Thanks. It was second hand but the colour was lighter when I received it as I wore it about 10 times but never in the rain as I wear only LW, Aero, etc. stuff when it's raining (I know I'm really picky). I assume that it will soak water more easily due to its soft nature - not sure about water stains, etc. No, I've never applied any sort of oil/conditioner to it. As you can imagine it's less resistant to scratches and abrasion/wear due to its softness but as you can see despite the aging process it's still almost flawless.
No. Never did a thing to them nor do I plan to.
At the most I would use a bit of Bick4 on the Sunset because I think it's quite old and some spots feel "dry" but it doesn't darken leather. I could take pics before and after when I do.
@Robbie79 @dudewuttheheck @willyto
How do you guys feel about getting this leather wet?
Basically i got the jacket, the first time i put it on i managed to make two water stains on it within seconds. (Beard was still wet from the shower...)
That made me go "screw it" and i decided to treat this jacket as if it was a regular leather jacket.
It has been raining all week, and i have been wearing it in the rain all week.
The first few outings i came back looking spotted like a leopard and as the water dried it was leaving huge water stains, after a week the jacket has gained great grain, the colour has much more depth and is much darker from the water only, and elbow creases are looking sweet.
The leather is a lot less even looking, there are light and dark areas, few stains, it really improved a lot from out of the box.
This made me wonder if you guys wore your jackets in the rain? Or are they reserved for sunny weather?
It's been too dark and rainy for me to take good pics, when we next get sun i'll take a few.
Unfortunately i don't have pics of it brand new out of the box to compare.
I literally made two giant stains on it 15 seconds after taking it out of the box and couldn't bring myself to photographing it in that condition. Stains have now completely blended in...
