Default So which will it be?

I got a great deal on a lightweight Power Trip jacket, but it's got OCC on the back, and flames up the sleeves.

Should I wear it with pride, or hang my head in shame?

If you like the jacket, wear it with pride! Screw em if they don't like it. My favorite riding hat says OCC on it. OF course it is so dirty now that it is hard to read..

I would have "Senior" sewn onto it and then tell everyone you took it from him in a test of strength.

I've got a soft spot for them, because I'm from New York. OCC and Moroney's.

If I grow my mustache back, and shave my beard, I look like him. Well, much better looking, but similar.

Who cares, wear the thing. It is made for sliding down the pavement one time in . . . who cares who gets scraped off. LoL Honestly, my old ass couldn't look cool with a belt sander, bondo and a gallon of paint . . I don't care much about what my gear looks like.

If ya do were it, make it fun. Any pussy can be a carbon copy in style . .it takes a man to stand out. (-;

I use a mesh jacket from Leather Up, less than 100 bucks, basic black, decent protection, and bearable in this S FL heat. So depending on what a "good deal" is . .the fact you even asked tells me it better be dirt cheap.

This is it in fact . .VERY cheap.

If it's comfortable and you like it wear it. Who gives a sheet what anyone else thinks. You may pay hell finding chaps to match though.
