Honestly, I'm not sure anyone here would take my comments seriously without the occasional "*&^$#" remark.

And I'd hate to make this argument a question of "freedom of speech," as everyone here knows that isn't the real case. It's just about courtesy, as I mentioned. As a devout defender of the Constitution, I'll be the first person to stand up for your rights to say anything you want to anybody, but my virtues hold me to the fact that I don't think any thought that enters a person's mind should come out of their mouth. Just because you might see a person in public who you think is overweight, does it mean you should call them "fat?" I guess you could. I just think it's mean-spirited.

I imagined you were sitting at your computer waiting for someone to respond to the thread two hours after it supposedly "resolved," so I only suggested the thread closure to end the madness.

I'll do you the favor and close down for the night too. Sorry for the interruption.

Im angry because Im taking **** for trying to help somone just please tell me you can understand that?

He posted his jacket w/ a comment about the pockets that confused me so to show him what I met, I posted a picture. He was new I didnt want him to get ripped off or anything, and If i have taken the time to know these things is it that bad that I try to help.

He then informed me he was aware of the differances but liked it anyway.

I said cool, Im glad you like your jacket.

Then later I said I personally wouldnt wear it to which I was again berated. It was my opinion. The key word is personally I didnt say Nurhacci was dumb or anything for liking it. Thats his opinion.

So its about courtesy you say?, I tryed to be nice and show him what was wrong and basically was told who cares **** off by some. Wheres the courtesy there??

Wouldn't courtesy be staying out of something you weren't involved in to begin with and just coming here to tell him u dig the jacket like Avilos did?



"I imagined you were sitting at your computer waiting for someone to respond to the thread two hours after it supposedly "resolved," so I only suggested the thread closure to end the madness. "

If you come in "after the thought to say something bad about me and Im still online, its going to envoke a responce. What did you expect? You only hurt your own cause .

thats all im going to say bcuz that post sums it all up and I dont want to completely hijack nurachi's thread.

Has courtesy ever existed on this board?



Not as far as I can tell. Btw, nice jacket kid. I'm rather envious. I always wanted one of those since I first visited Disney/ MGM studious as a kid.
While I understand that the styling isn't exactly screen accurate,I don't get why everybody seems to hate on the fedoras sold at Disney parks. I bought one about four years ago. I've worn it from Florida to California and back again and I can attest for for a $30 to $40 hat it's fairly durable. It's been on my head while exploring ancient indian ruins from the deserts of New Mexico to the Florida Everglades & Ten thousand islands. I even wear it in the river when I go fossil hunting. It's been stepped on, sat on, rained on, and dunked in the river and it still looks good. The lack of courtesy around here really is a shame though. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good debate as much as anybody but it seems as though some people are just hanging around waiting for somebody to post just so they can piss all over it.

First of all Nice Jacket. And I only read some of this thread... But.

It does only VAUGELY resemble the real Indy jacket. Sure it's leather and brown and from Lucasfilm/Disney but that doesn't mean crap. It is no replica. I mean, besides the pockets being off and the bottom of the jacket looking different, it has a whip and hat on the back and the Indy logo.

I mean, who cares, if you like it that's cool. But it's totally the truth.

I bought my hat out at Disneyland too, and it's not even a fedora. It's a leather hat with a braid instead of a ribbon, and as much as I'd like to own an honest-to-goodness Fedora someday, I bought that hat because I wanted something a little different. The same goes for my jacket as well; not even close to screen accurate, but it's nice enough and comfortable. I just couldn't afford to go all out and get a Wested or anything, but that doesn't bother me.

I guess I'm just trying to say that I agree with Attila (a few pages back), if you want screen accurate and that's your thing: go for it. Otherwise, as long as you're happy with it, what does it really matter?

As for courtesy, I think it can happen. I'd say there are more courtesy conscience folks on this forum than not, and certainly more than there are on some other forums.

I think this thread really says something about this community. What it says is, unfortunately, not very complimentary.

Nice jacket, Nurhachi. Glad you were finally able to purchase it.

Good show, Professor.

Sorry for opening an old thread, but I really like this jacket, and wanted to find out more about it.
I heard that it was a limited edition of 500. Can anyone confirm? What was the original selling price? They usually sell on eBay for $500 or more.

For the record, while we understand that not all corners of the internet feel similarly, we're all for the meaningful bumping of old threads. In the spirit of Dr. Jones, feel free to bring up something dusty from the archives, blow off the cobwebs, and see what power it may still possess.

I'm not entirely sure. I did buy one years ago at Disney World (probably back around 2006-2008) but I don 't remember what the price was. It's a nice jacket but I'm quite sure I didn't spend $400-500 for it.

As for being limited, I remember seeing quite a few at the parks. They never seemed hard to come by.
