    I see all sorts of junior executive types here in France carrying these dainty things around. usually wearing wholecuts and a high n tight blue suit. I too have no idea what could be in them.

    My guess is a pile of resumes.

    A type 2 jacket is a very specific model of Levis jacket. There are some variations, since there have been essentially 3 main models since Levi's started, but basically, this is it:

    2 flapped front pockets, a pleated front, a buckle back.

    I order from them directly, You wait a little more, but the GBP is so favorable right now.

    Ic thought it was an aero model due to the previous pic you posted. Switch topic where to buy aero leather?
    Me 2 man, life goes on, be careful with finances and be better than what the man represents.

    The styling is atrocious, but the product is solid, and you can get stuff is a "lighter" leather, which still makes most fashion jackets feel like they are made of tissue.

    The US Olympic Committee staff, I mean, I guess delegation just refers to the athletes.

    Nice.

    There's a member on here who helped design the paper pattern for the next USA Team Olympic uniforms (the blazers they wear, although there might be some other things).

    Wu Tang album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, is pretty good. The bits I got to hear at least.

    I conditioned a pair of boots and then put them away in the closet for a month and now they are stiff as hell -- should I just wear out the stiffness? Any recommendations for product to intensely soften thick leather? Saphir Renovateur seems to be doing nothing to penetrate the leather, need something industrial strength

    Cheers, will give it a try. Usualyl I don't want to conditioner to soften the leather too much as I like a bit of stiffness and structure but the boots felt like I put them in the freezer
