    The odds of someone on SF admitting to having owned bell-bottoms is slim to none, but I'd really love to see this. [​IMG]

    Mid 1970's. Channeling my dad, I guess. No rule mentioned it had to be from this week. This is from a couple of years ago.

    Dad's jacket from Vietnam. What he needed a jacket for at Udorn I'll never know. He wore it pretty consistently through the 70s and 80s as well as a bit into the 90s. I wore it heavily in college and when I was living in South Korea. Shows no signs of wear after more than half a century of heavy use.

    So appropriate for the mid-1970s?

    Are you suggesting that drug use is timeless and classic?
