And I like the creasing and graining the leather develops. Rather quickly in the leather LW has used the past two years or so. The leather will wear like most other jackets, in typical spots especially. It just takes time and effort. Not everything has to happen quickly or artificially. I really like LW leather. The feel of it too. Love handling my LW jackets. @Marc mndt Sometimes I feel like I’m the one missing something lol. Not for everyone, but I guess nothing really is. I do receive compliments on the leather, especially the J23, from non-riders. Plus, the jackets are heavy, durable, tough, as well made as a jacket could possibly be- all things I value while on a bike.
