An unlabelled Phantom copy (36, £125)—I wondered if this might actually be a relined Lewis but it appears the padding edges aren’t folded.

Looks a lot like my 80s Phantom, the navy blue lining is original.

2 fun/inexpensive Lewis Leathers copies:

A very nice Viscount clone (itself a Rivetts/Highwayman Ricarde copy) from Kett (42, £50)

Wow, this hide reminds me of the most beautiful 1950s American jackets I've handled.
It’s funny because conventional wisdom has it that Rivetts/Highwayman had poor leather quality. I wonder if it’s more a case of inconsistent quality? I’ve been eyeing various British 70s Lewis-a-likes lately (Interstate, Kett, Dobbs, Wolf, TT), and it’s striking how differently the hide is aging on different examples of the same jacket.
