They show up in strange places in WW2 photos but are a "holy grail" piece to some collectors because they have become associated with the 29th Rangers.

I really like that denim, shirt jacket thing in the pic above. I hope maybe they have it in another material. I have too many denim things in my life.

Kind of reminds me of a denim version of brad pitts jacket in Inglorious bastards.

Ive already done some tracking down and it seems this jacket was custom and not a repro...inspired by the eisenhower jacket

the http://www.78thinfantry.org/images/Uniform%20Page/ike%20jacket.jpg

Fingers crossed




Very good bad seed. I knew it wasn't Eisenhower but I couldn't remember for the life of me what it was called since it was so long ago. I knew it had an E. Now can you please find me one?

Some new vs now action on my 7161MDs, I gave these a wash yesterday since they'll be semi-retired for the duration of the Russell contest.  I plan to put a whole lot more wear into them eventually.
I make things out of leather.
