This is my first post but definitely not my first day in the lounge. Every time before I make a purchasing decision, I always wanna see how the leather will develop. So I always find myself here searching for pictures of ‘broken-in’ jackets. That’s why I’ve decided to share some of my own ‘broken-in’ jacket pictures and hopefully it’ll be helpful. Below are some pics of her enjoying tea in the afternoon There are some serious grains and creases developed on the arms. The color on the right arm is fading slightly and showing a copper tone. (Not sure why it fades so quickly but I like it) This is the only CXL jacket I own, comparing with my Vicenza jackets: Appearance: My CXL has a wilder appearance with large marbling grain, more creases and fades while the Vic feels more luxurious with a more even color, better drape and finer grain. Comfort: The Vic definitely wins. My CXL feels like a cardboard when it’s not warmed up. It can stand up on its own and when it's laid down, the sleeves will remain its 3-D tubular shape However, it does soften up A LOT after warming up. And when it does, it wears more like a heavy-duty denim jacket. While the vic is as soft and pliable as goat all the way.
