Someone should tell them they're using the 23rd FG tiger, not the AVG (Disney) tiger.

Buried somewhere, I have the AVG T-shirt the Cockpit sold back in the 80s and 90s -- actually has a good reproduction of the blood chit on the back. Sort of surprised no one ever asked about it when I wore it.
If you happen to come across it sometime, please post some photos of it . It sounds pretty cool .

yeh, the AVG tiger and 23rd FG Tiger tend to get used as if both are the same. In any case, I was/am fine with it. its a modern take sweater anyway with the screening on the sleeve.

I'm half-heartedly trying to clear out my storage unit, bound to find it.

Wish I could remember what was on the front. I think it was the Disney tiger with some script on the upper left chest.

Did a web search, but couldn't find anyone selling it -- *too* vintage? ;)

Most likely to avoid any trouble with Disney?

Not sure, though, if licensing is really that expensive.. With the Mouse being on every crappy 5 $ t-shirt?!

To follow the "Throw Back Wednesday" idea, I had fun with Photoshop :)

Have not snaffled anything from Japan in a while.

Newly purchased overnight.

Never stop never stopping the jacket buys!

A nice 23380 by The Few. Have never had anything from these guys. As usual, the hide and colour did it...

Great price too. 'PayPal in 4' will allow for some more of the higher priced Yahoo Japan listings in the near future...
Jacket and Elcan scope for my M240 are on the way....

Looks great, Jan! Himel makes some nice jackets, but then I look at the prices. Oy!
I know! I’m really glad Vic got in touch about a trade plus cash for the ELC RW. I don’t think there’s any other way I’d end up owning one of these.

Awesome! jacket look like a very nice piece of leather !
Among the best I’ve seen - now I just need to find out what it is! o_O

b-man is right, get that collar up. when I wore it, I always had the collar up and the rounded lobes turned down a little so as to not bug my chin when turning my head. that second pic gives a good idea of those hides. I've never seen any hides like those on the himel, used by anyone, anywhere.

Pop that collar up Jan!
It’ll add to the cool factor.
