    Sup Art,
    Sweet looking goat Cable. That's so cool you have it patched up to represent a Korean War era A-2.

    Thanks Grant yeah attribute that to Josh he had it all ready done and I got him to add 2 names to the front , thing is it's a 42 a 40 woulda been better as the cut of this elc cable is airy in the arms and not as fitted as I like but I do need to gain a little weight and I can wear a hoody and stuff and still be very comfortable I not so sure I can do that in my new star that I love and is cut superb for narrower frame like mine ...pics to come

    Love the paint job!!
    But I have to ask........Do you get hassled by women of the “#me-too movement” for sexual harassment when you wear your jacket out and around??

    Loving the movement...shhshh I'd say live and let live I'd simply say ... Being honest I've only had it a month and the weather in London's been to good to wear a jacket god damnit it but it's been McDonald's a couple of times and my kids have obviously said DaaaaaD about it but I'm happy to hold their hands and my head held high with it on... It's a tribute jacket to marrylyn if they really wanna get in to it

    Good looking jacket with great art work. Well done for wearing it!

    Just to be picky, shouldn't the shoulder insignia be U.S. AIR FORCE ?

    Well I've relayed that to the artist as he prefers to be period correct ... Nice one for the info hopefully they were both used unless their could be an iron on decal underneath
