Here's a glamorous model wearing one of those shop coats a lot of us have been buying lately. I won't be using it while we're still enjoying triple digit temperatures, but it should be good for winter.

Sorry, Dick, it didn't come with a mask.

Harvey, they're Czech army. The price is under $10 each, including shipping!

They never issued stuff like that when I did my time. Woulda definately re-upped. And for what it's worth Steve, I think you look dashing and dapper!

Harvey,

I retired from the Army Reseve a couple of years ago. I was Ordnance...maintenance...I'd forgotten how much I missed it.

Steve

Harvey....just miss seeing the troops.....

Actually I shouldn't joke aobut that. Soldiers are soldiers, and the best maintainers I ever had were nearly always the women.

Steve, you can probably incorporate "dashing" and "dapper" into your resume, but I think you should probably drop "glamorous." :-)

Steve:

My son-in-law (USAF) is with the Jolly Greens out of Albuquerque, New Mexico and from what I've gathered. I believe he may feel the same way with regards to maintainers.

Harvey ....

That's Dr. Steve wearing an official Model T Mechanic's smock.

Love your shop, Steve. Looks much like mine - well used.

The dapper model may be wearing the new shop coat, but the beautiful model appears to be wearing a coat of dust.
I always enjoy being allowed to share your day, thanks, Steve.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

What does wearing a shop coat do? I've always worn a pair of worn out Levis and a scrougy T shirt. I taught woodshop for two dozen years, and wore a shop coat then, so I wouldn't get saw dust all over the teachers cafeteria at lunchtime. I've seen johnny come latelys wear shop coats to swapmeets with the logo of their favorie car on back. I guess they are having some kind of identity problem? I know I'm going to get some good remarks from this one!

In my case, if I don't get a new gas line installed to the shop I'll be wearing it to keep warm. I guess otherwise it's just a costume.

Steve, I'm in the same boat. I have gas in the house and a furnace in the garage and no gas line in between yet. I have promised myself the last 3 years it was going to be done. I have a feeling that it is going to get done this year. On a side note, without heat last year, the garage never got below 40F. Gotta love the insulation. R49 in the ceiling and 4-1/2 inches of foil faced foam in the walls. 2-1/2 inches of insulation in the floor. Insulated doors and windows.

Doug, Sounds like you ought to be able to heat that shop with a candle or two!

I got mine too, sized just a little large, after a wash it will be the perfect size.
Hmmmmmmm.....they smell funny too !!!

David.

Same with me Larry, I have a pair of old jeans that got torn on my bare seat springs, a shirt (both long sleeve flannel for winter and a short sleeve cotton "T" (just the shirt for working on T's :-)) for summer) with nicely placed oil spatter and a pair of old worn out shoes, who needs a shop coat!

Those coats are so clean and pretty, they'd probably live out their life on a hook in the garage because I'd hate to get em dirty.

Has anyone tried bleaching one out white , and using it as a duster ??


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Darel J. Leipold on Monday, August 29, 2011 - 05:49 pm:

Dusters were not white. They were of unbleached linen. More of a beige. I have two originals. One buttons on the left, one on the right.

Darel, is one for the passenger and one for the driver?

Men's clothing has buttons on the right (men button left over right).

Women's clothing has buttons on the left (women button right over left).

At last I got some decoration installed on the coat. It took almost four hours to stitch the thing on, but there was minimal blood spillage. The pachuco collar was accidental.

That looks great with the Ford emblem on it.

Steve, Are those incandecent light bulbs in your shop??


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By George Button III (Chip) on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 - 03:42 pm:

Are these still available? I read somewhere that they were no longer making one of the styles of shop coats.

Hay Steve

Looks don't mean a thing,It's what you do in life that counts and tinkering with Model T is no.1 on the list.

Bob

Looks great Steve. I've never understood the white shop coat thing. I think they look nice but in my case, I can't seem to walk past anything greasy without wearing it. :-)

George,

This isn't the shop coat that Vintage Shop Coats was making. Those are indeed not being made. This is a Czech Military Surplus shop coat from Sportsman's Guide. You could get three of them for 20 bucks.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Steve Jelf, Parkerfield, KS on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 - 05:35 pm:

Yep, regular old light bulbs. When I had the sign business we did screening in this room, so I wanted plenty of light. Most of the time to save juice I turn on just the half of the room where I happen to be working. No fan of CFC's, I've stocked up on bulbs to last for years. Maybe they'll have LCD's improved by the time I run out of incandescents.

Chip, here they are: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/3-new-czech-military-work-coats-brown.aspx ?a=612607
