    I was online looking for a replacement for my old nappy and soiled down vest that needs to be retired (yes, I like down vests lol), and came across leather ones from Rainbow Country. Most of you will laugh, but I dig them and find them superphat + phunky. The upper is HH, and the rest is cowhide. Got this navy/black one:

    It was a tough choice between that one and this swanky olive/tan one:

    If Batman wore a down vest he would wear that one!

    I think those are pretty cool.

    I only laughed as soon as I read "superphat + phunky.

    I kind of dig the green one.

    Love that movie. Scared the shit out of me when I was a young'un seeing it for the first time. I watched it about a month ago and it is still a good movie.

    I did too. Tan yoke and green body. I loved that puffer. One could trace my sickness here back to that original jc penny’s puffer. Worn with wrangler dark brown corduroys of course.

    Along with this 80s bomber jacket:

    I think I could really go for a vintage OP vest with the cordoroy/nylon combo.:)

    The outerwear section has taken some delightful diversions from its God tier leather jacket olympic competitions lately. I for one am really enjoying it!
