So today it's my new Rising Sun "Ranch Hand" jacket.
It's a classic pleated, two pocket jacket.  Similar to the one levi's made in the 1950's.
Here it is being worn.
I like the "bi-swing" back.
The buttons are the classic wreath donut, but they have a "effect" on them but I wish they were just plain though.
Love the front pleats...  It's brown duck cloth material.
Their logo tag.  
The back.
The back cinch.
And their rivets.   If you're in Old Town Pasadena, stop by their wonderful shop.  It's well worth the trip.  The jacket is classic Vintage Gear for Guys!

Today it's a very cool item...
I think it's a 1952-1957 Emerson TV... gutted.
I saw this at a garage sale, and instantly thought about converting it to a flat screen HD TV inside!
It's just missing it's knobs... should be an easy find or replacement.
The cabinet cleaned up great.  And it's in really great shape too.
The light green color insert was black when I got it... 60+ years of cigarette tar.
It's going to look great with a new TV inside it...
If you ever wondered what it was like to be "on" TV.
Even has it tube papers inside...   This is Vintage Gear for Guys!
