I just got my ANJ4 from Lost Worlds. Go see it at my instagram “milesdeathescape”
I’m sure the sheep skin is far thicker and a heavier loft also on the LE. My arm goat skin shields seem to be getting a lot of character already after a week. I’m extremely satisfied with my LW and for the price, I better be.
You are right. Eastman is lighter and the fleece is thinner. LW ANJ-4 is one of a kind. I sold one and I regret it.
I much prefer the sheepskin cuffs
Yes I do too, i may be wrong but I suspect the an-j-4 cuffs were originally made long and wide so gloves can go inside them and the sleeves didn’t ride up when the arms were outstretched .
I see put my ANJ-4 up for sale today and it's already gone. I hope it's gone to somebody who can get much more wear out of it than me, it really deserves to be seen!
Sleeves rolled up. I do this on my Lost Worlds but there is a wool cuff inside the LW jacket.
Those that wish to see my Lost Worlds in detail, go to my instagram page. Milesdeathescape
Miles your Anj4 looks superb identical to mine.
Thank you. I believe the fur is the thickes on this all American made jacket. Even the sheeps are American.
Yes but this is unnecessary.
Cool photos on your insta
Have just sold my Irvin for the same reasons, D-1 coping well with the current weather
Here in the PNW my ANJ-4 doesn't get much use either but I can't talk myself into getting rid of it.
Down here on the edge of a Dartmoor valley, that extra bite in the wind means I’ll be keeping my BoB Irvin. But I have always carried a hankering for an ANJ-4. To me it’s easily the best looking US forces shearling. Even if I didn’t wear it much, I still think one will end up in my collection some day?
Speaking of the Irvin, it’s time to put it on for an early trip to town. Just nudging a wind chill temp of 0 outside. Brrr!
I hope you mean 0 F not 0 C. 0C is bermuda shorts weather around here.
The ANJ-4 usually comes out when air temps (not counting wind chill) dip below 15 F (-9 C). This morning it was 13 F in NE Ohio so mine got it's first wearing of the season. A couple winters back it seemed like I was wearing it nearly every day for a few weeks.
^is it too heavy for low 30's?
-40º, so it won't matter
