    I think that a new HH jacket should be worn as it is. If you want a jacket that looks 30 jears old, weare it 30 years.
    Remember when your jacket is in fact 30 jears old and looks like 60 years you may come across that you have treatet it wrong in the beginning.
    Or your son may think so?

    Regardless of what I decide to do, I'm digging the creativity of some of these responses.

    Here's one. If you have a convertible, put your jacket on, the top down, and drive as fast as you can.

    I keep just one thing in my mind that if my current jacket has been torn out, I just move out to a store and get a good looking jacket for myself. I never rely on any particular brand or labels.
    I love my wardrobe

    Haha, not a bad idea Butte. Do you wear your A-2's on your motorcycle, or other motorcycle jackets more specifically?

    In electric guitar playing circles, there has been a long running (often heated) debate about the credibility of pre-distressed guitars. All started when someone in the Fender marketing department was inspired when Keith Richards sent back a bunch of new Telecasters, ordered for a tour, with the instruction that they were "too new" and to "rough them up a bit". Fender developed a whole set of specialist techniques to make a new guitar look and feel like one that has been played for sixty odd years. Among those who profess to hate these "Relics", as Fender brand them, there are many who nonetheless wish their guitar to look broken in as quickly as possible. A running joke has emerged about tying the guitar to the back of your car...

    Believe it or not, this is a new guitar:

    If in doubt - overdress.

    Most "real" musicians say bah to those. I know when my son was starting guitar after bass, I asked him about the Joe Strummer Tele, and he looked at me like I was drunk. I was glad he felt that way personally. That whole thing is part of the immediate gratification many are addicted to today.

    You know what Edward, I'm right in the midst of the reliced guitar debate. I play and love fender telecasters. I just bought an American Standard recently. I bought it without the relicing because I just couldn't bring myself to get one pre-reliced. With that said, I really like the look of worn down guitars with the bare wood showing through.
