Richard, maybe you have a "one-off"... you sure you didn't have that made just for you Wink??

 Huh

Mark,
I obtained the jacket from an ex-club member. definitely not a "fake".
I have quite a large DKP collection, hats, sweatshirts, t-shirts, rally plaques, decals, hood badges, pins, etc., all from different club members over the years spanning DKP I,II,andIII.
Don't worry, I have no intention of posing as a member or decorating my car with the items.
Just a collection of a club I admire that will remain in my basement.

Right on, Richard. That's what I figured. Thanks for your honesty.

Here is a bit of history on the "original DKP Burgundy Jackets".  I worked at a tradiational mens clothing store, Howard Still's in the Broadway Center in Anaheim.  We carried the "Peters and London Fog Brands".  I sold most of the first jackets to club members.  The first batch as I remember were the Peters brand and then that company discontinued the burgundy color.  At that time we were able to get the London Fog brand, but the color was a bit different with a less solid color. 

The Fogs were actually a better quality product, but didn't have the look of the Peters, thus the Peters brand was everyone's first choice.  As I recall these jackets were in the $14 to $18 range which was a good amount of money back in the day.  To put the cost into prespective Gant long sleeve oxford button down shirts were about $5 and American Made.  Corbin slacks (I still wear them today) were about $20 (today well over $125) and last were "British Walker Shell Corodvan leather Saddle Shoes.  If you are not knowledgeable with "Shell Corodvan" leather it won't crack where your toes bend, but will roll.  These shoes were about $32 back in then and today would probably be close to $500 if you could buy them.  These were all items a lot of the members wore in the day as we took pride in our appearance unlike what I see in the youth of today.

So the question is, what is an original DKP jacket worth today?  My answer would be "PRICELESS".

definitely, I love to come on here to see these fantastic items, the stuff you only see in books is brought to life by John, and many others who were there when it was all happening and like to recall tales of the old days. DKP stuff is sacred to most of us, and the chance to see these things is great. Knowing some of the history of the club, I would certainly say it is inappropriate if they were displayed on a car which wasnt connected with DKP. I wouldnt like to say if old members should sell their club stuff, but I can see the appeal in owning these things if you are an enthusiast, and they are for sale.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the kind words, but I just like sharing the history of what once was.  I look back at it as Camelot and am thankful I was able to experience it with some great friends. 

Last night I was at the DKP monthly event at Nick's and try not to miss them.  Myself, along with several of the original guys are so pleased that what we started as kids has grown into such a world wide thing.  Personally I'm thankful that I still have some of my original items, such as the membership card, DKP badge and my original patch along with other items.  My plan is to die with them.

That's cool! That was one of the questions I asked Sarge when I met him last year. Whats it like to see something that started out as a couple of kids fooling around with some cheap cars now an international hobby that thousands of people participate in.

For me I'd have to say I'm humbled by the way I'm treated by the younger guys.  Jim (Sarge) and I have not discussed it much, but I suspect he would agree.
