    Thanks gents, much appreciated. It certainly is an amazing color and the smell, oh the smell, fantastic. Even my bloodhound of a wife loved it. She couldn't stop smelling the jacket and talking about it. She wants me to sell a bunch jackets out of my collection and buy more like this. I will have to consider that.

    I really liked the way you simplified your LW CHP and figured I needed a police jacket that was a bit more formal, for when I travel. So thanks to you.

    Thank you both. The red wine lining and the navy blue stitching had me a bit worried. Especially after seeing some of the other blue jackets around here that were built with either black or olive stitching and linings that looked spectacular.

    Thank you. Simplicity and elegance, everything I am not.

    Thanks.

    Too late, by now it has burrowed in and set up shop. Give in, its easier.

    I think it’s looking at the pictures of the jacket that does it, so for the next few weeks I’m going to studiously avoid looking at pictures of a CHP. Here’s hoping (kind of).

    Here my super old CHiPs from Aero. I got this used, it had been abused, now it's my thrasher too. Don't know when it was made but I've never seen a more beat up aero, I've seen more patina but not more wear and tear. I had a cut repaired I got while extracting my vehicle from a snowbank in Northern New Mexico, I replaced the zip with a beefier one after the original failed. My first horsehide. Still one of my favorites. @JMax 0912191107-01.jpeg 0912191108a-01.jpeg 0912191108-01.jpeg 0406171331b~3~2-01.jpeg
    You can see some of the "teacore" patina on the sleeve in the last photo taken a couple years back.

    My utmost respect JMax Sir. I joined up in the Suck before Saigon fell but for much different reasons. Back in the compass and map days. You’re an ok guy...for an officer. Lol
    That must be where they taught you how to wear a jacket!!!
    Your latest might be your greatest!

    Ha, I was enlisted at heart. It actually got me in trouble a few times with other officers, especially those outside of my career field. Too bad, I had more fun than them.

    I thought my G-1 collection was “complete” (ha!) but I found a real gem: a 2002 Excelled Navy-issue G-1 in a rare size 48 Long that dates to the year and month that I was selected for advancement to Navy Chief (a major milestone to the lucky few in the Navy chosen for this position). Picked this one up for under a hundred bucks!
    Fits like a glove and the goatskin is superb (very reminiscent of vintage 1950’s and ‘60’s G-1 jackets).
