FS (EU2WW): Lost Worlds J-23 sz 38 custom

Lost Worlds J-23 in in a sage green cotton based fabric, size 38 customized. Matching belt included.

I will be adding photos to show measurements and details (please don't ask for photos via DM as I can't seem to attach any).
The sleeves are shorter than regular and the waist is slimmer than regular.
Note that the base size 38 fits roomier than a leather size 38, so if you wear a size 40 in the horsehide LW J-23, this 38 should fit you well around the chest and shoulders.

Condition: signs of use but still very good overall and with lots of life left in it as this is the same outstanding build quality as Stuart's leather jackets.
Slightly frayed piping at one point of the main zipper and more fraying at the right hand pocket zipper. Slight discoloration at the inside of the back of the neck. Slight damage at the wrists. All zippers work perfectly and all pockets are fully intact and clean.

Current price for a new one is USD 1350 for a regular size, or several hundred $$ more if you want custom sizing.

Asking € 480 or best offer plus shipping costs. Shipping from Germany. Paypal with buyer protection.

Keep checking the forum for more of my Lost Words jackets (some already posted, more to come).

Measurements in cm, photos, comments

Pit to pit (when pressed flat - not shown accurately in photo) 53.5
Back length from base of collar 61 (*)
Sleeves from shoulder seam to longest point 60
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam, measured at the back 49
Waist hem 46 (difficult to photograph because the sides are relatively stiff)

(*) Note that the collars of these LW jackets come down lower than for example in Schott Perfecto or Aero cross zips. Full back length including collar is 65. The collar folds down _below_ its base, not exactly at or slightly above the base as in cross zips with more modest collars.

If you compare these numbers to my LW Easy Ryder of the same fabric type, please note that the construction of the J-23 is much more complex and thus heavier, and its lining and pocket lining are thicker. This J-23's fit in relation to its outer measurements is tighter than my Easy Ryder's.

All wear and tear I can find is pictured here and in the following post. Notably for Lost Worlds, the main zipper is fully intact. So is the lining.

The outer fabric has a flatter drape in reality than the dramatic shadows in my flash photos make it look. The sage green color was easier to capture with flash.

The pocket lining is a thick, wonderful beige velvet.

This is the nicest jacket I ever owned. Only letting it go to order a similar from LW that will accomodate the muscle I've grown on my back and shoulders since I bought this one.

Bump for flash sale - € 290 OBO down from € 480 if you buy before 04:00 AM Central European Summer Time.

Even taking into account minor signs of use this is an absolute steal for a Lost Worlds jacket made from an unobtainium military fabric.

Shipping this to the USA with DHL starts at € 18.49.

Bump for non-flash-price of 330 or best offer. This is a steal. This model has double in price since I bought it from Stuart.
