    Leather jacket makers in the New England area?

    I would first ask around at local cobblers. A shoe repair guy could easily add a zipper.

    Leather Police Jackets

    The jacket was ordered on a Saturday, shipped on Monday, and arrived on Friday. This jacket is a leather replicate of the textile jackets regularly issued by police departments. The first thing I did was remove the liner. The inside of the jacket liner is fleece, and it is filled with...

    Side Laces on Motorcycle Jacket?

    Everytime I buy a leather jacket, I think to myself: "can I wear this on my bike?", "will these laces get in the way if I need to draw my sidearm?", "what heels and purse will I wear with this?"............ just kidding about that last part.

    Taubers of California

    Until about 50 years ago, leather jackets were just not commonly sold or bought by the average person. Leather jackets were a specialty item. Military, police, motorcycle riders. And from what I was told, longshoremen. Dockworkers. Military and police jackets had manufacturing...

    Leather Police Jackets

    I bought this jacket. I didn't need it. But then again, I probably didn't "need" any of my leather jackets after I got my 1st. Every leather jacket after that, was "want", not "need". This jacket is identical to "raid" jackets sold by uniform manufacturers. I have a jacket just like this...

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    Except for the people who wear yoga pants, who are not physically fit. It's not just the office. Yoga pants are now a fashion item. People wear yoga pants everywhere. And a lot of those people, are not athletic, in any way. I think that for some of those people, they enjoy the attention...

    So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    You may as well ask him to dress for dinner. Request that he wear a dinner jacket. Make your house "black tie". As I discovered in real life, nobody really knows what it means when invitations read "semi formal", "black tie", "formal", or "white tie". Because people in general no longer care...

    Your Most Disturbing Realizations

    Parts of California are some of the safest places on earth. Not so in my neighborhood. People of my ethnic lineage are targeted for hate crimes. Justice is administered in different ways, depending on your level of income. The police have never come to my house to welcome me or deliver a...

    Your Most Disturbing Realizations

    Very few people sympathize with the wealthy people who are hungry. Or the "rich" people who are poor. Her main problem is cash flow. From earning a salary to living on disability is a big difference. But the big difference is that disability does not pay enough to match the cost of living...

    Your Most Disturbing Realizations

    I have this friend. A homeowner. Lives in a very nice, upper middle class township, just a mile or so from The Big City. Amongst her neighbors are elected officials, appointed department heads from city and county agencies, and business owners. Homes are over $1 million. Her home is...

    Vintage Food

    $0.88 per pound. The price is vintage. That's probably what pork chops sold for 50 years ago. It makes a pretty good pork sandwich. Ham and cheese?

    Vintage Food

    In some cultures, they don't eat pork. In other areas of the world, goat and lamb give milk and meat. Not so much here in The USA. In The USA, we don't sell horsemeat. There are specialty sellers who sell "exotic" meat. But "exotic" means everything which isn't beef, chicken, and pork, from...

    Vintage Food

    I guess it's cultural. Offal is found on Latin American and Asian restaurant menus. Tripe, intestines, heart, liver, tongue, kidneys. Brisket is very common in Asian food. Jewish delis still have brisket. Corned beef was brisket, but now I also see round, as in top round and bottom round...

    Why a Leather Jacket?

    It all depends on your "crowd". Different social groups. I know a spot where guys are still wearing 3/4 length leather coats and turtleneck sweaters. Not to mention that if you go to a motorcycle club, then yes, everyone is wearing leather. I didn't want to be the guy to mention it, but...

    Why a Leather Jacket?

    The leather jacket, where I worked, was issued to motorcycle riders and the people riding horses. Nobody else even wanted one. Not 1 person, ever, wore one if they weren't riding a horse or motorcycle. And a lot of the guys who were riding, didn't wear the leather. Some people thought they...

    Why a Leather Jacket?

    Bartender Edit: OK, folks - enough fight talk! Let's keep this on track, please. Further posts in this direction will be discouraged.

    Why a Leather Jacket?

    The better option is to not fight at all. Unless you are the guy that other people call when there is trouble. I firmly believe that most people should not be fighting, and that most fights could be avoided. As someone who has been in fights, I don't like them. This is what it's like...
