I bought this off the Sales page a while back. It was intended for the export market (I recall it was Japan after asking Lost Worlds Inc, so that is why the sizing is a bit smaller, also the pockets look at bit bigger, maybe due to the proportions), other than that I was told it is the same as the jackets sold on the main Lost Worlds page.
Made in the USA
I am the original owner.
Measurements (approximate, inches)
Pit to pit: 20
Sleeve length (excluding cuffs, for cuffs add 2 inches): 21.5
Back length (base of collar to bottom of jacket, excluding ribbing, if including ribbing add inches 2.5 inches): 20.5 or see pic to clarify.
Cuffs and ribbing condition is great.
Zipper pull says Talon.
Jacket can stand up by itself.
The only thing I notice is that some of the plastic has worn away from the base of the zipper.
The wrinkling on the left side of the jacket came like that when the jacket was brand new. I was told before by other forum members that means the leather is mismatched and that makes it a more authentic World War 2 jacket. Some people do like the wrinkling since it is not as common as the "flat" leather that is normally associated with new leather jackets.
I personally like the wrinkling for the above reasons, but I will say for those who don't, the rest of the jacket should eventually look like the leather on the left side after it gets worn in. But judging by how stiff the horsehide leather is and looking at the arm sleeves wrinkles for a clue to see how the jacket will wear as time goes on, it will definitely take a while for the rest of the jacket to get that level of wear that is shown on the left side. So enjoy the unique jacket (while you can).
