    Vintage Police Uniforms

    Nice discussion here, like said before Police must earn authoritative position. One way to earn it is by looking intimidating so everyone will notice them. Is that good way to protect and serve? in my opinion is no it isn't, but who am I to say :) I understand that officers realise the...

    Show off the sports coats.

    Thanks, No markings at all, liner is repaired in few places and still ripped/worn in few others. I thought previous owner was real party animal before A.C. Lyles gave his idea. Didn't even cross my mind to use it as outerwear :) just weighed it and it is 3,4 lbs. Good to show here something and...

    Show off the sports coats.

    This is my winter lounge lizard coat. Really thick, heavy and padded. Was bit big on me so my current seamstress could add darts in front, I had nothing to loose :) Color is much darker than in the first two, but that third is too dark. I really like this but it is really too thick...

    Show us your waistcoats/Vests?

    My pinstripe vest, prpably part of lost suit but I really like it. Six pocket if you count inside pocket too and nice pleats. Inside pocket is as deep as it could be. What is the history behind these pockets? wallets when not wearing jacket? That white stuff is snow :)

    Hair cuts

    I also like the feel after haircut, I guess being refreshed could have something to do with air going thru your scalp. In winter your ears will remind the coldness of air after losing hairy shield :D I've used that German haircut guide, or one part of it.. I guess in the name of correctness you...

    The delightful attic smell.

    I'll stick to the old freezer trick then. Fortunately winter is coming soon and clothes will get to see some snow and cold air.

    The delightful attic smell.

    Would good steaming do the same? I also have pressure washer :D but with only bit off pressure I could wash jacket easily. Hmm, never thought that big cost saving of dry cleaner bill is self ironing.. I'll have to ask can I do my own ironing.
