    My 0,1ct input...I wear them ...to special occasions, with the same spirits... as when a P-51 or a B-17 is on display or flying on air shows or other commemorative events...not more not less.
    Hope it helps...

    I agree and I think within a reasonable band of flexibility we’re all saying a similar thing.

    Whether it’s £1k, or the best part of, or maybe more on a repro or maybe that elusive minty original or restored origipro, I am very unlikely to be be treating it “badly” though we may all have our own interpretation of what badly is!

    I couldn’t look my family in the eye if I spent that sort of money then chucked it in a corner in the pub etc! And the fact is if it’s survived 80 years till I had it and might have been worn by a hero at some point makes it worse, IMHO!

    However, what an individual spends their money on and what they do with their purchase is entirely their business.

    I certainly wouldn't advocate making bullet holes in an original that's for sure......

    Just my obscure sense of humour after someone mentioned adding bullet holes in a jacket a couple of weeks or so ago ;)
