    Well done and stay safe.
    I work in Radiology (public) here in New Zealand. Luckily with the lockdown we seem to have escaped the big numbers of cases that were predicted. Looking forward to getting back to normal.

    Thank you for such kind words Bowen and everyone on FL. I was really scared and worried that I'd be too rusty and no good but the amazing team has been so supportive these last 2 weeks and I'm relieved how much knowledge I remember. My thoughts are with everyone who's been affected by this truly awful virus. Please take precautions and stay well everyone. May this end soon. Nick ❤

    For the brief moment I was outside of the cave today, the chosen jacket was a Vanson Associates. This was an eBay find I took a chance on a couple years ago and it's turned into one of my favorites. Pardon the awkward selfie. IMG_2849.jpg IMG_2848.jpg IMG_2850.jpg IMG_2480.jpg
    There's a couple loose threads at the bottom I need to take care of...

    Marvel superhero movies been making some dough the last decade +, DC haven't done too badly either; but sometimes the real heroes are the guys you hang out with on internet forums. They have much cooler leather jackets than any cape. God keep you safe, Leither, and Bowen, thank you for your decades of service in ICUs and ERs. You guys are the real deal.

    Brooks Cafe Racer from the "Finds and Deals" thread, it's a size 38 but it feels a little too tight when I zip it. The leather is beautiful and the patina is really nice, I'm not sure how old it is but I think this one is one of the early ones if I recall well looking at the embroidered gold label and the smaller talon zippers, any one knows how to date it?

    PS: Apologies for the sideways photos, I'm not sure why it's like that.
     
  11. Seems it happens frequently with those who use their phones to post photos on this forum. I use a desktop and my pics are always positioned correctly.

    I used a MacBook to post it and didn’t give me an option to change the direction of the pics. Maybe it’s just Apple trying to be difficult.

    Absolutely love Belafonte Ragtime. I don't think I could pull off most of their stuff, but I do love their aesthetic
     
  15. I just upload image directly from my computer using the link below on the bottom middle left of the post. I most generally click on 'thumbnail' that comes up then 'post reply' and there is no option to change direction or position of the pics. No need for it. 20181202_183517.jpg

    Today is A1 day - my first day back into the Office since a couple of weeks - not yet a full restart but some important issues

    Jacket is made by BRONSON - it's their largest size 44 and fits remarkably well although i'm usually more a 46 guy
    Boots are RedWing "Spirit Lake" - pants PikeBrothers

    Nice Fonzie - my favourite jacket maker, style and weight. They do tend to fit a size small. It's a pre- '79 jacket, probably mid 1970's.

    I’ve found my pics need to be 4:3 aspect ratio. If they are 16:9 (vertical) it displays horizontal. So if I crop yours a bit they display vertical.

    Nice jacket too btw! Hard to beat the fit of the two pocket Brooks.
