does anybody have any interesting pictures of nice sheepskin lined leather bomber jackets with patches on them, like old military ones? I am thinking about having one made, and I would like to see some ideas while I am thinking about it.

With patches representing what? How much you paid? Where you bought it...but in military style? Sorry, I guess I just don't understand this.

A bomber jacket is one thing, but a bomber jacket with insignia that is meaningless or you didn't earn or serve for is a horse of a different color.

Oh, I would go on a diatribe agreeing with Robbie but that would just bore people. I disagree with the concept of a jacket adorned as such for many reasons and would say something in person were it so obviously contrived.

actually, i agree with you totally. as part of a minor mid life crisis, I am toying with the idea of a jacket with some of my old military patches on it, and/or a patch from my boxing gym. a lot of the guys at my gym wear old baseball style jackets with the gyms patch on it, but I don't like those. I recently saw an old guy (probrably 15 years older than me) with a leather jacket with his old marine badges on it. both ideas sort of gave me the idea that it would be a cool thing. just toying with the idea now.
