Impressive most impressive
Yes, it is stored safely under my bed, waiting for the temperature to drop... The B-3, the Mash NAF and the G1 are actually the only jackets from 2008 that I still have...
I’ll be sure to keep my eye out for that one ,I imagine it’s ageing rather well
It was a bargain at the time.

Kind of want a D-1 right now.
seems some of you guys invest amounts equals the value of a mid-class house nearby central park in New York City ...
How is that saying?
"If i'd die and my wife would sell the stuff i HOARDED for the Price i told her i payed for it ..."
Jeeesh! either i started collecting too late or i did not make enuff of those small green bills with Will McKinley's face on it to be able to afford ...
There’s some serious jackets people have acquired
I’ve always admired that king of the heavies B3 by Simon but I never knew it belonged to u
This was said by one of my friends ...
Everyone has different financial capabilities and aspirations ... Also I think not everyone here is a collector. Just lovers of flight and historical jackets or interested ... Me personally get rid of jackets that I don't wear. But everyone has their own touch and this is probably normal. Again ... life (in this world) not perpetual, so everyone has fun as he can and as he likes
that was pure irony from me - i already spent that much Money for even more "irrational" things i would be able to buy the "Eiffel Tower" in Paris (again irony) ...
like your Image says: enjoy life as Long as you can - whoever knows what happens tomorrow
therefore "thumbs up" and "respect" for the serious guys here on this forum no matter whether they own 2 or 20 or even 200 jackets
My jackets are the least of it. Ten years until I take my Army superannuation pay out then I will sit and list the WWII items I don't need for sale.
Thomas, kamerad, you are right all of us here led a common passion for the irrational things
Can't believe you are calling these things irrational. Sheesh.
It was irony
20% of collection,,the rest is made up with m/c wear & half belts,,mainly aero,vanson,dainese & belstaff,lostworlds,
AN J 4
Couchy, that's an impressive list!!!
The only thing wrong with it is the RM B-10, you need to sell that to me asap!
