    Like a lot of other nerds, went out and bought a 1st pattern tanker after Fury came out. Turns out it's a warm and practical jacket while cycling around the city. Here's mine after a couple years of winter wear. Supposedly the puller is an original Conmatic. Tanker.jpg TankerZip.jpg Tankerlabel.jpg

    Great looking jacket .
    I have to ask one dumb question;
    Does your stuff fall out of the pockets when you take it off or lay it around?

    nice jacket - some fitpics would be cool

    I had a similar one with those - like MikeyB mentioned - crisscrossed stitches and 2nd Armoured triangle on it but removed `em pretty quick

    is like the time when "Band of Brothers" was on TV when everybody wanted to be a 101st paratrooper

    Wish I looked as cool as the cat second from left.
    Badass 9th AF pilots during the Battle of the Bulge, once the weather cleared.

    Like the jeans, the paratrooper scarf, and the jacket!
    The outfit works for you!
    BTW I think that 2nd guy in your photo is WWII ace Gabby Gabreski

    Probably not Gabby as he was a POW at the time of the Bulge.

    Good point Smithy.
    But that guy does resemble him a bit don't you think?

    I still want to know if his stuff falls out of those pockets when he takes his jacket off and throws it over the sofa?o_O
