Though I’m new here I’ve been looking at TFL for over 2 years now. I think this whole argument is what makes us, “us.” There are those that want original deadstock, super accurate repros, vintage inspired looks, and those that want modern day but still made by hand or bespoke. The combining thread is our passion. Whatever your niche is here we’re adamant about it. Everyone is right and everyone is wrong. But whether it’s Schott, Aero, Vanson, RMC or Toys and so on and so forth we all just love the traditions, history, details and that this world even exists. We all appreciate the art and beauty. So I try to avoid the things that don’t interest me or pique my curiosity or that I want. But we’re all snobs here for whatever our thing is. But I also like that because there are so many opinions and experts on all the different styles and makers. Sometimes it’s even more fun learning the history of the company or style of jacket then collecting the jackets themselves are.
