The softness and quality of the suede in the jacket I received was superb. Each time I wear it, I can't help but touch how luxurious the suede is, and of course the fit is perfect. I love the minimalist double rider look in this design. It's definitely stylish, but it can work with a lot of different personal styles, I think. The whiskey brown hue is a also very versatile color for coordinating with my other clothes. If I had to point out anything, it would just be the fact that since it is suede, it's not going to be as durable as some of Independence Brothers' other more traditional leather offerings. I have noticed some very minor wear near my wrists. That's not to say it's fragile; I think that's just a fact of being made of suede and that I like to wear it fairly frequently. Overall though, honestly, it's hard for me to imagine a better jacket than this for me. It's only a matter of time before I order another. Thanks again, Scott!
