Sometimes a guy needs a new coat.
My mom still has that jacket, and I started thinking recently that I wished I could get another.
The vintage ones are hard to find, and obviously, the commonly desired sizes like L and Xl are virtually impossible. So I started looking at new ones. They turn out to all be cotton-poly now, the new ones, which wasn’t the same. And I didn’t want a black one, or camo, just the same old green, cotton field jacket I had when I was a kid.
Then I found the jacket above; all cotton, vintage styled, skul-and-spade logo which, you know, is so damned me, and *on sale* for a third the price of the current GI surplus ones.
I couldn’t be happier. Has kind of a travis bickle look to it, doesn’t it?
