Why do you wear kutten?

An Overdose Of ...

Saw a thread here asking why we buy band shirts, and it got me thinking... why do you guys wear battle jackets?
I started mine as a tribute to the bands I like (and because I thought 80s thrash bands in their kutten and bullet belts looked sooooooo cool, but mainly as a tribute) because it gives the opportunity to show off ALL the bands I'm a fan of, rather than just the one on a shirt). It became more than that through the years though, and is now more like my history in wearable form. I've traded patches, I've made them, I've received them as gifts, etc... I have patches from bands I've seen live, bands I've booked for my own shows, bands I've loved for years but never saw live, tributes to the fallen, etc. I've had that thing signed by bands, worn it to almost every gig I've been to in the past 3 years, slept in it, moshed in it, partied in it, wore it to important events, and spent hundreds, if not thousands, of hours working on it and wearing it.
So, why kutten? What's your story?
