    I really admire the beauty and the love that Mr. HAMILTON puts in to designs of his jackets, I only wish that one day I could afford one or two of his laker jackets. My sons a great laker fans, and as a mother that have to great son that are laker fans would some day love to be able to afford to purchase them a jacket. $5,000.00 a jacket isn’t in any of possibilities of ever being able to even purchase one. I know it take time and another of effort to design these beauties but if there is ever a way possible for me to ever get one at a much much lower price please contact me so I can make one of my sons soooo happy. Be more than happy to make payment. SINCERELY YOURS, Mrs. Bridgette Arnold
