$650 for an off the shelf jacket?



About the price of a fully custom jacket from a number of excellent makers.



But then, I don't own a Ducati so maybe I just don't get it.

Ok, just one question, how does one bring up the subject with a co-worker of posing on the internet.



I'm guessing like this."Say I bet a picture of this jacket would look better with jugs. (What doesn't?) Boy I wonder where I might find those." At that point look around the room, while rubbing your chin, and saying hmmmm under your breath. Then you would say, "Which one you ladies have the most photogenic chest. It has to be a lady this time because JB's previous display failed miserably to increase readership. Polls of our readers have shown that a hairy chest is considered unappealing."



There might have even been some test photographs with other staffers. Minime please don't post any of yourself, Hackfu,JB, or El_Flaco.



I could be wrong. I also believe that it involved beer, as a more observant viewer.... er reader noted, to seal the deal of who to pose.





Well no matter, the jacket was more photogenic than any other I've seen lately. Hoochie welcome to MO, very nice work. The review was good too.

Default Zippers

I've been told that the "backwards" zippers are from the days when both European men and women of higher status did not dress themselves. Since the majority of butlers and maids were right-handed (or summarily executed), the (then) button seam was, for the wearer, reversed.



So, for us lowly colonists, only the wimmens have someone dress them.



Therefore JB, they ain't gay- they's "privileged".



Different, yet related subject:



Where the heck is Blip?

What was someone saying the other day about HD riders and their overpriced leather designer clothes..........



Looks like Ducati's giving the Motor Company a run for their money. Maybe soon we'll see T-shirts the say "Ducati: I actually own one".
