Thanks for everybody being patient with me...RL has kicked in in a huge way...but here is the info on the custom made flight gloves

The gloves used were LA Rapid Transit District Bus Driver gloves (standard issues) in the 1970's. And Gods knows that I tried to talk many a bus driver outta their pair back then. LOL Eventually got a really nice looking pair that was oh-so-close..but even I still need to get my accurate pair..and talked to my friend Kathy about it. (Professional costumer for private and film work)

She is in the midst of moving and won't be able to start in until mid Aug, (and her ebay store may be down for a short time..but she said to go ahead and post her contact info)

You can contact Kathy at

katarra8@earthlink.net

or

katarra8.com (which should take you straight into her ebay store).

So there ya all go!!!

Yup, I've been bugging her for a while to make me a pair...then when I mentioned RL and there are others asking about them...she decided to go for it!

(I have had gloves from her before..really nice..just never got the Solo ones). Mr. Green

that is fantastic news. depending on cost i'll be in for at least one pair. probably two.

those gloves are impossible to find.

PS, I would suggest once she starts, if she can handle the business, it might be worth putting this on RPF too as I am sure there are some people that would want them there as well.

Just go ahead and contact her... like I said, she is in the middle of moving...but she said just to have people contact her. IF there is enough interest she may do a group order. (But the group order is ME thinking out loud..you guys have to talk to her).. LOL

But, if need be...I keep checking in on this.

Who ever e-mails... let he know I'd be interested as well... just so she can get a feel for how many are interested... but I am too lazy to email myself... lol unless she really IS going to make them... then I will!
