Hi DannyBurt, can I ask why you wouldn't wear a painted jacket and would you wear a patched jacket? This is not a rhetorical question, I am always interested in understanding the boundaries between homage, tribute and just plain vintage wear and the attention it can attract. Reenactment and shows are a different narrative and I put them aside vs everyday civilian wear.
And sorry if this is too personal, I'll understand.
Ohh not personnel and I enjoy the exchange and the conversation . I think wearing a patched jacket or a painted jacket is all up to the personal choice of the wearer. I admire guys who wear painted and patched jackets . I just can’t pull it off. A number of years ago I wore a patched MA-1 jacket that I put together myself. I wore that jacket until the elbows went threadbare . But that was during the Top Gun days and I was younger and in my mind cooler . I’m not so young these days and definitely not so cool
