    As much as I despise Nazis (as if most people don't), i really like the Luftwaffe jackets shown on history preservation. http://historypreservation.com/hpass...landing2_2.php

    The erich hartmann one looks splendid. The only problem is finding $750 to spend on them.

    So the way I see it. We get into a fight. I leave the fight pants-less and you leave it jacketless? Who leaves with the black eye and no wallet?

    Really nice jacket. What size did you order compared to your regular suit size/measurement?

    that leather looks gorgeous, can't imagine how well that is going to age!

    congrats

    Thanks guys.

    Luc, I gave them my chest measurement and sleeve measurement. They also asked my height. I wish I'd thought to give them my neck measurement as well, as I have a thickish neck, but I don't normally close my collar anyway. They will cut their jackets to your measurements at no extra charge.

    Love the jacket. It looks cool now, but after a season of hard wear, it's going to be fucking breathtaking.

    It looks pink because of the fluorescent lighting. In the closeup of the label it looks more red because less fluorescence is getting through the camera lens.

    Nice find, indeed!

    just had an amazing find at burlington coat factory, which i usually never go to beacuse its just fubu and 50 cent. a pair of rrl selvege "authentic", 47' 501 fit, one wash, fits true to size unlike all the rrl ive heard about, selvage coin pocket, and the coolest feature i think is the pink line slevage. made in usa. they were a size 28x36, and i picked em up on clearance for 15.99. fucking unbelievable. pics are in the denim thread.

    In the past few weeks I've bought these:

    - Paul Smith "Endless Summer" tee
    - Paul Smith "Various Gas Station Vol. 1" tee
    - Lacoste navy with flashy blue/turquoise stripe cotton spring jacket/sweater
    - Jack Spade "St. Greene" messenger bag
    - Blue Turnbull & Asser shirt from Connemara
    - fatherseafan's (new member who I know personally) Aquascutum spring coat

    Now I'll be looking for a pair of jeans (perhaps APC), a pair of khakis, perhaps a pair of shorts, and then the usual polos/t-shirt (most probably Jay Allen) for the summer.

    I should stop spending. I really should.

    i dont believe it either.... ive had some crazy luck lately.

    at the same time ive searched every store like that(burlington, ross, tj maxx, marshalls) in town looking for something good, and thats the first thing ive found. it just takes time looking i guess.
