    Edmond: Grizzly jackets were made by a bunch of different manufacturers. I'm not sure there's a specific version that would be more authentic than another. If you like the one I posted than you might want to send Steve_S here on the lounge a note as he's the guy who made it.

    Agreed. That's a fortress of a jacket!

    It's too bad this isn't available from LW anymore. It's really a smashing jacket. I can only imagine it that LW HH.

    Sorry for boring you. But it's the same jacket every day. Actually, the same complete outfit. I even wear the same t-shirt and the same undies. I've got 10 of each, so I don't have to waste my time on thinking about what to wear.

    I bought my first Jean Jack after Bob Dylan wore one in the Concert for Bangladesh. It was a Lee. I found a Western store in a small town near me that stocked Lee. I bought the first one new all the others have been from thrift stores. They showed up often. I bought Levi and Lee, the Levi showed up more often. I prefer the Lee.

    Yup, the Lee 101J takes some beating. Two great pics there.

    Here is a pic of my 60's model.

    If you compare with the pics above, the space between the bottom of the pockets and the waistband is only a tiny bit longer than the height of the pockets, giving a much boxier look, whereas on later ones, that double seam on the front is much longer in comparison to the pocket. Also, the zigzag stitching always hit the top horizontal seam - on later ones, it just misses!

    A-1 I didn't recognise you without beard!

    I was wearing my Aero half belt sample today. I've been wearing it the whole day during my trip in London and it's already showing some creases here and there and the texture is popping up. Also that is my first proper hat apart from flat caps, a 1950s Trilby by Dunn&Co a bit on the small size but I liked it a lot.

    Wow Willy,
    That looks amazing! But your complete look is great!
    And yeah, no beard, different man, or should I say boy.

    I dislike your mustache with great intensity but I love you for being awesome and having the guts to do what you want. Which I don't. Rock on! :D

    Didn't Einstein do that? Wear the same thing everyday so he didn't waste mental resources and time working out what to wear?

    Vanson Marauder. The original owner cut the patch off, I'm on the lookout for a replacement.
