    [​IMG] Also, hand painted bomber jackets with pin-up girls or eagles dropping bombs on Nazi's or something would be cool.

    Rarely post due to time and obvious photography constraints, but I couldn't miss sharing these.

    Lobb Newland, 7e. Top 3 find in my five years of doing this. N/A. I'll post some more photos once Brian takes some worth sharing.

    Thought I'd share a #tbt photo with y'all that shows how long lasting my interest in outdoors gear is. This photo is from Christmas 1980, and shows my brother and me (I'm the older one) wearing our parents' Frostline Kit jackets (sewn by mom).

    Quick and dirty. Shout out to Thrift Vader for the Buzz Rickson MA-1. Very impressed with the quality. Head and shoulders above the regular military issue.

    I saw a pair at a consignment store once, but price wise, it wouldn't have been a very thrifty purchase. :/

    Congrats Joshmick!
