    Not a collector by any means. Tend to sell everything that I don't wear.

    Here's the current inventory of leather jackets.

    High quality reproduction
    Aero: 2

    Non-repro leathers (i.e. fashion focused):
    Hugo Boss: 3
    Yves Salomon: 2
    Drome: 2
    Coach: 1
    Sandro: 1
    Vince: 1

    I need to thin out the fashion jackets. They're great, but not getting worn as much anymore.

    If anyone'd asked me how many jackets you have, I would've said 70.
     
  4. Are some Men really that afraid of their Wives. I see these remarks from time to time. Makes me think some consider their Wives more like their Mommies and they enjoy it.

    I'm on about nine Aero, three Eastman, and about half a dozen one ofs (Schott, LW, Taylors, Wested among them). About half of what I have needs to be sold on to fund the wish list. Only keep what I wear. Got my eye on a few, mostly Aero, and a couple of bits from the History Bunker guys.

    I had one Bates but I've placed them into the first category. If I was to list every maker whose one jacket I've had, list would be never-ending.

    Had three Langlitz jackets, too.

    Hard to say, they are all very, very different jackets in many ways. I don't have a favorite maker, but I do have favorite jackets. I just updated my list with 2 Bill Kelso jackets.

    I have so many it is hard to recall.

    There are some old words of wisdom..."If momma ain't happy, then no one's gonna be happy." There are likely some married men out there who can relate to this.
