Hi Guys, Been a while since I've been real active here, but I thought I'd share something fun with you and see if this ever happens to you. Living in the Chicago area is great for wearing all sorts of jackets from my A-2's and B3, B6 and D-1, depending on the time of year. Lately, we have been in the deep freeze with a high today of 5 degrees F. Good fleece weather! Lately I've been favoring my well-worn RMNZ D-1 I picked up from a fellow forum member a few years ago. In the past two days, I have gotten compliments from six totally random people while out and about running errands. Young and old, and from very diverse ethnic groups. "Great jacket man! I love your jacket! Is that an original?" It does feel good to get compliments on a jacket you are wearing and some positive reinforcement for our hobby! Anyone else experience this? It is interesting to see what people notice and what they like. Happy New Year everyone to my friends here on VLJ!
