    I just purchased a Taubers on Esty. I do not visit Esty often but have a faint memory of buying a jacket there in the past. Going through my Esty account I see a purchase of Cal Leather on Jan 18, 2020. I find the transaction in my paypal account and see the seller sent me a tracking number. I have no memory of receiving this Cal Leather or Selling it and I do not have it now. I searched TFL classifies and the incoming jacket thread no sign of it. Now starting about this time mid-Jan 2020 through early March 2020 I was going through some bad life change events that made missing a jacket irrelevant. I suspect I never received the jacket and forgot about it coming. I do not think I actually receive the jacket and turned it over with no memory or record. I did search Paypal no record of selling it.
    I know I turned over a heavy cal Leather that reminded me of Star Glove and a light brown Cal Leather in 2020 not the jacket in question.
    Does anyone have an idea or remember the jacket pictures below

    I do not recall you posting anything about it.

    The only Cal LAPD with a chest pocket I remember was the one @ton312 used to own. Been some time though. A rare bird.

    You know... I do in fact vaguely remember someone posting a few photos of a CHP leather jacket with a slanted chest pocket - Which is the reason why I memorized it as it might've been the first time I had seen this feature on a Cal jacket - But I don't have a clue if it was this particular jacket. Or if it was even a Cal Leathers at all as it could've been any other CHP style but... Thinking about it, it had to have been Cal because otherwise I wouldn't have found it noteworthy.

    So in short, yeah, I might have seen it though I cannot say with any certainty under what circumstances. Could be that someone simply posted photos from the listing. No idea.

    Boy i had to laugh at this one.
    Not to poke cruel fun at you @jonbuilder but welcome to my world. I hope you locate your Cal. Maybe you’ll get lucky and find 5 more you have no recall of like has happened to me with hats(more than once). Pleasant but disturbing.
    I found my similarities had NOTHING to do with age...just a time-space continuum phase issue.
    If i run into your Cal i’ll remember to let you know.
    Good hunting.

    This thread reminds me of Sunday morning when my girlfriend was helping me straighten up a little bit. I was upset because I couldn’t find my RMC Storm Rider. I showed her my IH Storm Rider to give her an idea what it looked like and she immediately pointed at another jacket: “there it is” she said. Only she was pointing at my Lee Japan Storm Rider...

    sign #1 you may have too many jackets ;);););) Although I'm at the point where I had to create a spreadsheet to make sure I was rotating them in enough to get some wears, so who am I to talk?

    All the more reason to always post newly aquired jackets somewhere in FL - so if we cannot recall, someone else might - that we actually did have it at one time. So glad you found this on Jon! :)

    I get pretty confused as well. I can't remember what jackets I put into storage before heading for the Island. I'm pretty sure I have a couple of GWs in that box.
