they dont look to bad, take some pics of the label,

and the edge of the sleeve, that can give me an idea of thickness of the leather, dainese older suits were 1.4 now they are more 1.2mm.


also if you can get a close up of the grain that can let us know if its cow or roo (kanga) most likely cow

you may also want to look to see if the leather was drum dyed or silk screened, depending on the year it was made it could be either, now the industry standard is drum dyed,

you can tell this by looking at the inside of the leather if its the same color as the outside most likely its drum, if on the edge you see the color only on the top layer then brown tan on the inside could be silk screened,

drum dyed is when they soak the leather so ink becomes the inner fabric, which weakens the leather fibers,

silk screen they only put color on the top layer, so the inner layers are still fibrous and stay in tack better when they were swimming down the pavement,


NICE SUIT!!!!

OH YEAH AND AWESOME TO SEE YOU GEARING UP!!!! Keeps us riding!!!
