The Drop + Alpha Industries Godspeed Flight Jacket is a fun, elevated product, and a nod to space exploration and our Mech Keys Community. With MiTo designing four custom Velcro patches, the flavor is all Godspeed. This allows you to mix and match any way you like. It's a legitimate flight jacket with elevated touches, such as softer predominantly peached cotton fabric and a double zipper with authentic replica details—down to the same contrasting zipper tape as the Gemini jacket worn by James Lovell of the Apollo 11 crew. Also, if you feel like a cleaner look, the patches are completely removable and the Velcro is “dyed to match,” so the Jacket can be worn without any messaging at all.
Lot of assumptions you made there, chief bot. Managed to project your view on corporatism, manufacturing and economics all on someone who believes your post was written by a bot.
I wouldn't buy this jacket either, but it has nothing to do with whether or not it's made of leather. Flight/Bomber jackets can be made of any material, just like any other piece of clothing. Are your shirts and pants all made of leather too? I've been meaning to get some leather underwear and socks. Point me in the right direction?
In all seriousness, don't assume people's views on politics, economics, or corporatism if they haven't mentioned it, because the truth of the matter is (as in this case) you don't know a single thing about their beliefs and commenting on it makes you look stupid - not them.
At this point I don't even know what you're talking about. I didn't express any beliefs, so I don't know how they could possibly be fabricated or based on misinformation.
Again, you're filling in gaps with your own conspiracy theory nonsense that had NOTHING to do with what I'm talking about.
As for me "defending" my "conspiracy theory"... What the actual fuck are you talking about?
And when it comes to leather being "better for the environment" than fabric - let's briefly pick apart this odd statement built on a mountain of assumptions:
1. That the purchaser will actually keep the garment and wear it long enough to a) not ever buy a replacement and b) not supplement their collection with a jacket of any other material in the interim
2. That the emissions from cattle farming and tanning aren't malignantly affecting the climate due to poor regulation and fracking violations on a massive scale
Your incoherent wackjob argument is full of holes and your weird, conspiracy theory assumptions about my beliefs are especially odd. Who the fuck cares about fabric jackets this much? Take that babybrain tinfoil hat shit somewhere else cuz no one here is buying it.
Ok real question: are you a random word generator bot?
I'm honestly confused how someone so pro-plastics is so concerned about textile jackets being environmentally problematic and not with the endangerment that factory farming for hide and meat presents to the environment at the same time.
Your incoherent ramblings and strange fetish with accusing others of progressivism or some other perceived (see also: projected) political or socioeconomic scarlet letter along with the word soup of misspelled and misused adjectives makes me wonder if I'm arguing with an offshored troll bot.
Either way, your rant makes zero sense-yet again-and is full of toxic ad hom bullshit that I'm growing quite bored of.
Stick to 4chan
