    What else do you collect?

    I used to collect a lot of stuff, magazines, leather jackets, motorcycles, US military boots, tools, literature. In the last three or four years, I have stopped all of that, sold nearly all of it off (aside from the tools), and am acquiring no more. Less is more, I want a little as possible...

    The 80s, myth and reality?

    Uh Uh, no. At least not of anything I saw on the West Coast and Arizona. ...maybe in the rust belt or the large east coast cities, at least until the Rodney King riots.

    What advice would you give to your younger selves?

    I had a manager whose motto was exactly that. She was one of the most miserable people I have ever met.

    Another Cafe Thread: help me make a decision!

    If it is actually going to be a riding jacket, just have Vanson make up whatever you want. I have had a couple made for me and they are dead on.

    What advice would you give to your younger selves?

    When one of your life long best friends advises you to buy as much Microsoft stock as you can after he finished up his internship in 1989 says so, do. Same for the other friend from grade school that said the same about Amazon in 1995. Take that trip after high school, after college, and after...

    Today in History

    While I missed the December 7th and 16th (yesterday) "what happened on this day", in early December, I think of two servicemen from my little town of 150 that were killed in WWII on those two days. Claude Gowey was on the Oklahoma on December 7th. I just ran across an article that his...

    Broken-in Lost Worlds a Myth?

    Current photo. Very much an old friend. I just haven't worn the jacket much since about 2005 after I got a real job and stopped wandering around. The thing has literally been around the world. I wear it occassonally, mostly when motorcycle riding.

    Unknown Reproduction Heavy Goatskin A-2 Jacket, Size 42--Great Shape

    I will be listing a number of my jackets in an effort to pare down the jacket armoire. This is an odd jacket. I don't know who made it since it is missing the tag, although there is a size 42 tag in the lower part of the liner. The jacket is extremely heavy goatskin, like Lost Worlds heavy...

    Where's all this intolerance coming from??

    I don't think it is complicated. Humans are predators and that is the base root. Modern laws and the societies and tenuous civility they create are the unnatural state.

    Does Aero make the most `Period-Correct' B-3 Jacket?

    What a coincidence...look what I just ran across stuffed in an old "Fighter Aces of the U.S.A" Book:

    Does Aero make the most `Period-Correct' B-3 Jacket?

    No, I no longer have the jacket. It went to James Garcia after a couple of years of ownership in 1993. The thing that make me think it was different were the samples of the new sheepskin I got when I got the russet horsehide A-2 from you about a year later .

    Does Aero make the most `Period-Correct' B-3 Jacket?

    Odd...the B-3 I bought in 1990 which I had to wait on since it was one, if not the first to have the horsehide trim, did not have that finish which I though came out shortly after thereafter in 1991-92?

    Does Aero make the most `Period-Correct' B-3 Jacket?

    I would agree with this if Eastman is still offering the polyacrylate lacquered finished sheepskin.
