    Angry Notice of theft, NW

    Riders in the greater Portland, OR area please be on the lookout. Reward for recovery.

    Just a note to let you know, My custom tailored Langlitz Columbia was pilfered by a sneak thief the morning of Friday March 5 in Hillboro, OR.

    Being custom tailored for me, it has my name typed into the interior pocket lining, Timothy P. Stephens.

    It is a Columbia, dark brown goat hide, with contrasting light brown trim on the outside pockets. It has belt loops for my Sam Brown Belt. Just last year Langlitz replaced the thin collar and added a leather half circle to the lining at upper back. Two outside zip pockets, zip at wrists. Men's size 38 approx.

    Keep your eyes pealed for the dark brown with light brown pocket trim. Please keep it in mind through out this years rallys. If you see it, please report it.

    Reward for return, more for the severed hands of the thief.

    Contacts:
    Hillsboro Police, Justin, 503-629-0111,
    file no. 100640761 1st degree theft, felony.

    Me, T.P. Stephens, 503-648-3548

    Too bad:(.

    Some punk of any age, probably got it for stupid reasons, like drugs or something bad like it. Keep a watch at your local Pawn Shops too, as these kind of idiots are always in for the quick buck! It may well get sold at a pawn shop. I'm also from a past of road warrior, Officer in the Washington DC area and you too, apparently have some kind of conection to it all. Best regards...Randy

    The only connection I have to the law is, I pay taxes that pays their salary.

    It was the reference to a Sam Browne that caused that assumption...

    I see. Indeed, the Sam Browne belt is perfect for the duty officers, in fact Langlitz has supplied a great many to motorcycle officers since the 50's. All custom fitted for such purposes.

    My main leather riding jacket has Sam Browne keepers...and you're right, a lot of classically designed jackets have these loops... I was never a motor officer, never will be, so they are superflous, but...that's the style!!!

    Yeah, that's it, and that is the original designer, Ross Langlitz himself, way back in the 50's. See www.Langlitz.com.

    I think it was a Schott jacket that Brando had.

    I'll have my eyes open on my way to and during Redmond. The unique colour combo is helpful.

    Purely out of curiosity, and so I might avoid the same fate, where was your jacket when it was stolen?
