Okay I posted something in the "Oh Little Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeoooooooooo" thread to the effect of:
Brooks are ugly, heavy, and look uncomfortable.
I did some research (tiny bit) and they look pretty kewl. The leather is not really wrapped around a shell. More like it's riveted to the nose and tail & there is no shell underneath. You sit on a "banana hammock" type thingy.
Who's got one that can tell me about it?
