What happened to the other letters Duke - ‘K’, ‘E’, ‘N’ x2 and Y - did they fall off?

Peeled them off so it was still ‘all in the best possible taste’

Golden Spike overalls... bought on a lockdown whim, just after the WH contest shenanigans... took a few weeks to arrive but sailed straight to my door...

Great fabric, well made as expected, super super roomy, not everyone's cup of tea but I do quite like my new Andy Pandy pants...

@Duke Mantee - Have you found the FW hoodies to have a very deep hood? On the one I just got the hood is like a tent. When I put the hood on I look like Emperor Palpatine...

^maybe I should look into FW then; I usually look like a condom about to experience blunt puncture with a hood on

I never thought them to be excessively deep - big enough to be a proper hood instead of those that cover up to the front of the parietal. I find that handy because I look like palpatine with the hood down ...

I don't know if this would interest the folks here, but I came across a little series of articles on the Crazy Eights motorcycle club to which Atsushi Yasui belongs. Great images and a fun little story published by Roller Magazine in January 2019.

Sushi is crazy on this stuff (TROG and all that) - and near killed himself doing too.

A lot of FW designs are influenced by that culture. Especially early 20th C. Harley Davidson style.

Yeah, I've seen their ads and presence in chopper culture, but I didn't know Yasui's direct connection to TROG and by extension that crazy ice race from the article. Great stuff all around.

I had a chat with @the shivman the other day - he was asking about FW releasing a ‘grizzly’ (no not a live one @Maynard Friedman :dry:) and he used a word I’d never previously associated with FW and leathers ... “prolific”

Prolific is accurate and I’ve no idea why it wasn’t apparent to me but I took a quick stab and listed them for him. Shamefully I missed (at least) 3 - but with the 3 added, here’s the lineup:

What you guys need to do is name them and tell me what’s missing ...

Anything Roller Magazine (minus Ken Ahagara) catches my eye.

Thanks for the clarification Duke, I think our interpretations of ‘grizzly’ are polar opposites!

You tell me - that’s the game ... they are in alphabetical order so that might give you a clue :laugh:
