    So far so good, actually I wore the jacket in heavy rainfall and hit it with some steam (borrowed my girlfriends steamer haha) and wore it a lot. After the steam the jacket felt a tad bit dry so I hit it with another application of conditioner.

    I won't do any other things with it but wear it for the coming year at least, the leather is feeling really supple and healthy atm. not oily to the touch but nourished and softened up.

    I read about Lost Worlds jackets not absorbing anything, well, this one does. With the right amount of attention (spent another 4 hours for the second application)

    Will keep you posted as the weather gets colder here.

    You can see how the leather has softened up and is draping in this picture, where the back panel is laying over the unzipped front:

    Seems like the topcoat is great for water & abrasion resistance, but is not conducive to treatments. Regardless, I would never go 20 years before treating my jacket. Why gamble on it drying out. Even if you don’t wear it, the humidity level in your house can cause the leather to dry. Might as well apply some conditioner to see if the leather will absorb it.

    Those are the kind of creases you find in vintage jackets from the 30s and 40s in the sleeves.

    That can't be a Lost Worlds, everybody knows LW have no character and are impossible to break in!

    Seriously though, that really looks great.
    You are making me regret not buying this one more and more every time you post a pic like that.

    I won’t make that mistake again. Whatever Stu has been using the last few years really is nice!

    You're making a mistake right here... he has been using his top notch horsehide early on, before we were in this game by a long shot! lol

    I love seeing threads updated. All to often we get a thread started of an awesome jacket and then it gets buried, never to be revisited. I hope we can get more threads resurrected with evolution pics. Thanks @deswaaf for keeping this thread updated. Your jacket is looking better with each update!
