    yeah ..
    I think so, too
    If I don't pursue the perfect thing, it won't be a problem to wear, right?

    exactly. its such a small detail. and I Never use it for what it is intended for anyway. the idea of a modern heavy leather jacket hanging by a tiny leather strip by threads stitched to the back of the jacket is concerning to me lol! someone recently came across a real vintage WWII A-2 jacket that also had never had a hang strip stitched to it. another oversight during wartime production rush.
