alrighty, so my mother made a hippie jacket back in high school. (the good 'ol 60's)
I decided to make my own, not wanting to ruin hers. I bought an old army jacket at the army surplus store, then added patches (the most expensive item) and some band names.
Not quite done, I still have to add some back patches and some of my favorite quotes from the era.
Have fun with it, be creative as you can
