Yep, that's the tag on my jacket.

Now I'm starting to wonder, would mine indeed be a size 46? It was somewhat big on me at first so I removed the shoulder padding and installed an extra elastic band next to the original one which I shortened somewhat to increase the tension, pulling in the back gussets to make the jacket more fitted.

Yup Marc that jacket is waayyy too big on you. Looks terrible. ;) When you realize that and decide to sell it, I’m your huckleberry that’ll take it off your hands.

What's Up Dudes!!!!???????

No FIND---No DEAL------ so my apologies over the slight breach of thread etiquette here.

I just wanted to poke my head back into the Lounge here and see how things are goin with y'allz!!! This being one of my favorite threads---I figured I'd pop in here.

Some other life priorities have hijacked me away from this hobby so I'm currently on a mini hiatus from the Lounge for a little bit longer but I am doing well and champin' at the bit to get back to the sport of jacket hoarding.

I hope that you are ALL WELL and continuing keep this place afloat!!!!! I love the Lounge and I really miss keeping up on all the goings ons and who's into what etc. I admittedly have shadow lurked here and there from time to time and seen some nice pick ups by a few members and that has sorta helped satisfy my addiction to vintage jackets.

Anyway, I miss you all you guys---and I miss this place and this hobby, but as MacArthur promised the Philippines, "I SHALL RETURN"...........Hopefully in the Fall and JUST IN TIME for @ton312 to be TOTALLY OVER IT with his robust Trucker collection and blowing those bad boys out right and left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some things should NEVER CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : )

Peace!!!! Be Well and Keep Keepin' On Bros!!!!!!


Cheers!!!/Prost!!!!!!

It says the brand is RMC but I thought Bootleggers was either a FW sub-brand or a brand that preceded FW. Or is that Bootleggers Reunion? I know that the historical person known as the "Real McCoy" was himself a bootlegger.

I do like the "furthur" tag inside the jacket, referring to the bus the Merry Pranksters drove in the 60s. I am slightly confused by its presence in a 30s style college jacket though.

a lot of times sellers will list it that way because of the category options. it is definitely bootleggers
