Insert my typical lamentation about the 200 year process of getting JL’s website built so people can actually shop their stock…without having to be in the store some 2,100 miles away….

I’m getting new longer sleeves put on an older M200L jacket, I’ll post a few photos when I get it back.

if you’re there, just talk to them in store. I’ve seen them do some major alterations on other jackets. But right now I believe they only do it for their own jackets.

I’m curious to see how their sleeve replacement looks, especially with matching older leather. I have a pull over riding shirt with short sleeves. I am debating between replacing the sleeves and putting on some type of sleeve-end snap cuff to fix it.

I wonder what color is the leather? I need some older leather for a project (sleeve panel, and belt) I am trying to repair.
Looking forward to the results!

My problem is the opposite. Always need to take in on the sleeves.

Mine in alteration is a newer jacket that has same available leather so I got lucky there. There are so many different shades of black it's best to see in person how the old leather and new leather matches under different lighting.

I could drive across a bridge and be at JL in half an hour. It took every ounce of discipline I had not to do just that yesterday.
I don't have the self control! Just stood out in the rain lined up for 15 minutes to get a pair of glasses on sale. Feeling the holiday vibes.

Apparently they've been selling quite a few suede truckers recently that I've been eyeing. They have both a split suede and a full grain reversed roughout, I've always understood that the full grain roughout is superior to the split suede but from what I was told the split suede they have is comparable to the roughout. I don't suppose anyone has handled both?

I think split suede has longer nap so it has that nice suede shine. But for unlined versions my personal choice is still rough out (full grain on reverse side). The suede side of the rough out probably won't feel as luxurious as the split suede, but it has the potential of patina development on both sides, a least that's what I had hope for. Haven't gone down that road yet, will post pics when the time comes.
