    I wear, frame, or share everything :)

    My 72 year old father has about the same number of shirts I do at this point, and makes them look 10x cooler than I ever could... especially the hats!

    I spin all my vinyl (except a red LB that I have, because I have a black one to spin... not that I spin that album anymore either way, har har har). I have framed one poster out of the maybe 6 that I own. The rest are just in a portfolio doing nothing. But that is just because I can't afford the framing (yet). I have 4 or 5 of the EV zippos, and used only one simply because I don't need to use more than one. And I recently stopped smoking (in favour of vaping), so don't even use that anymore (not that it matters - the fucking logo flaked off horribly). I really have no clue why I ever kept buying the zippos, nor why I am holding on to them now. There is a mysterious appeal there, but I can't explain it... Maybe one of these days I'll be able to bring myself to sell the collection - I can't figure out why I haven't already, given that I've abandoned all hope of actually completing the collection. It just sits there mocking me in its incompleteness, lol. I have some other random merch too that I just keep in a drawer, but that's just the lame stuff, like the 10C sticker sheets and crap like that.
    The one zippo I use flaked off horribly too. And I rarely ever use it, I only smoke cigars or pipe, and only about once a week, and usually use matches.  I'll fill it up about once a year and use it until it runs out. The printing process they used must have been horrible. I have 1 other zippo that is new, but only for the same reason as you, have no reason to use more than 1.
    Which of the Zippos tend to hold up the best, anyone know? Or are they all fairly "delicate"?
    The one that flaked off for me was the chrome Evel Knievel one. And it happened fast, and for no reason. I didn't even carry it around in a pocket or anything. @mace1229 , which one is yours that flaked? Same one?

    I think it was the one with the Edd silhouette from ITW. I don't follow the zippo craze, I think I just bought it on his solo tour in 2008.
    Same as you, I didn't carry it around other than the few times I used it and it flaked off bad and fast.

    That is brutal. I was hoping it was at least only one of them that had the problem. :disappointed:

    I recently bought a new 2014 Lightning Bolt Lifetime Collective Lumber Jacket. I haven’t worn it yet but it seems really well made.

    We've discussed this in another thread but that is exactly why I passed over the hoodies this tour.  They were the same price and half the quality of the Letterman.
