Burt, 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.

Hi Danny
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 :)

To slightly change the subject, that Dubow 1755 "without the paint", looks kinda' nice. But when I tried to use their fitting page, it said they couldn't fit me. Anyway I reached out to them with my measurements to see what they say. Got to say it sure looks nice. And that Dubow contract is one I don't have. Very interested!

Hey buddy
I know I’m preaching to the choir but as you know , JC makes a drop dead gorgeous 1755, and no fit issues with him .

Saw some in the flesh recently but wouldn’t pay for or wear the painted ones..especially the ‘Hells Angels’ around these parts. Did buy their early G-1 which I’ll be paying off of my credit card for a bit :)
