Not leaving the house
I did want to ask all of you what you thought of this drummer boy jacket. Its VERY old, like turn of the century old. The buttons are original brass Royal Marines buttons (Gary Cain from Westwall Militaria values them at $60 for the set alone. I took the jacket in to be appraised). It is on trend I guess. The red trim has been hand sewn on and is coming off in one place. Its actually got a great story too. A woman who owns the Bliss Mansion (one of the oldest mansions in Carson City) found it in the basement when she bought the place and gave it too me because I am "in to that kind of thing." Do you think its a little TOO vintage? I have photographed it several times and prepared to sell it probably 4 times and just as I am measuring it and listing it I chicken out. I just can't do it. I DO NOT WEAR IT though. Something tells me I should just put it on a dress form and keep it as decoration. What do you all think? Is it something you would actually wear? It fits nicely, is warm and comfortable. Feedback please. And you won't hurt my feelings.
