    Great thread! As I looked through the catalog

    thinking, "Oh, yeah. That one and that one and that one." I realized that those jackets are still being made. By Aero.

    A Hercules and a modified Bootlegger (I liked the buckle cuffs on Ronald Reagan's capeskin, p144 and had them added). The price has gone up a little since 1942, true, but, the jackets are still available.

    While I am no tanner, philologically speaking, I'd say, "goat".

    Oh how I hate email shorthand. The laughing smiley above was actually typed as l.o.l (without the periods). I wasn't laughing out loud, but typing philo logically.

    Fortunately Spiegel and Sears are still in business...I'm placing my order. Mark (fishmeok), drop me a line when you get into these patterns, in case the're out of stock. You know I want you to build me one. You've got my email.
