    Had a Corduroy jacket like the one on the right,(Santa Cruz) but in Beige in the late 1980's but I hadn't the confidence to wear it, and sent it to goodwill!!!!

    "NOW NYLON LININGS GUARANTEED FOR LIFE OF OUR BEST LEATHER JACKETS."

    Well, I have one of these Hercules jackets in near pristine condition, but the lining is starting to fail. What do you think the reaction might be if I showed up at Sears with my jacket in hand and a copy of this ad, trying to make good on their guarantee? :eeek:
