    I suppose we could PM on subject matters not meant for general consumption, don't know the rules. Then again email can be shared independent of TFL, but I get paranoid. The internet is weird. My moniker (is that what it is called?) is Jonesy86. I bet someone can guess what my last name is. And, yes i have been 86ed once or twice from an establishment selling libations, but that was a long long time ago. :)

    Regarding the Thedi “gun” pocket. Despite the gun-like shape stitched on the top of the pocket, the actual pocket is just a normal interior rectangular pocket. At least it was on mine. I always had the impression it’s just a normal pocket with a little extra styling on top.
    Don’t overthink it, it’s a pocket.

    We do have a thread on TFL called "Show Us Your Guns". Can't post there, don't have one. :)
    As I have mentioned, I do now have a fedora, which my daughter thinks should be illegal.

    Yeah, your right. And for all the Freudians out there, with all due respect, sometimes s cigar is just a cigar.

    I find discussing politics very useful, actually. You get a very good insight into a person you're talking to and I don't mean their political views. That I couldn't care less about. Rather, you learn if they're racist, for example and then you know not to talk to them anymore.

    This is why I bought a HWM and this is why I sold it. Won't ever look this cool. Ever!

  9. Hmmm...racist can mean two different things according to which party or ideology one belongs to. Race baiters are my most human disappointers.

    Wow! I wouldn't be able to tell by the placement of the collar snaps and the leather. My collar snaps aren't as close to the edge as with your jacket. Very nice.

    Thanks! I think this is one of the early versions. Has some cool no longer available features. The entire hem is leather lined with 2" of leather and the pocket bags are heavy canvas. Even the drill is a bit different. More coarse than what I've experienced. This is my 4th iteration of the j106, bought second hand, and it's the best fitting of the bunch. Go figure!

    Hopefully fellow loungers in the S. Cali area are safe and sound. Man I feel behind a bit but lord have mercy that thar is one helluva fire. I don't think I can remember anything quite so aggressive. From a midwesterner standpoint anyway.

    Always remember what General Chappie James said: "The Marines don't have a race problem. They treat all their men like they're black."

    Extraordinary warming woolblend (70 w/30 poly)-tweedcoat, halflong with zipped (quilted) windvest. One of my favorites. Heavy warming, sporty-elegant, more or less lightweight.
