    Hello everyone

    I've seen this trojan jacket for sale, price is 210e + shipping so probably 280 all included
    What do you think about it, does it seems like a nice quality jacket for you?
    Also do you know who could have manufactured it?

    Thanks for your help

    I have to say i agree with HH it looks a lot like a LW... (although i haven't seen one with chain pullers before i think.)

    If it is LW expect the back to be 23" or something super short like that.
    And yes, that is a great price for a LW, but considering you were looking for a size 40 or 42 i doubt this will fit.

    It is a 38 but measurements are fine i think
    Shoulder/shoulder 50cm
    Pit/pit 51cm
    Sleeves 61.5cm
    Lenght : 58.5cm, so 23 inches as you said

    It is a Lost World. The jacket has been on sale for a few months. Good price indeed.

    I agree it's Lost Worlds but it might be a sample or a trainee jacket or something for the Japanese market or who knows what. Here's an interesting read...

    What I'd do is ask LW about it to make sure but regardless, that's a great price for anything LW.

    The white size label appears in many LW early jackets like a-2, besides that I have seen many LW small size trojan sold at Japan market with exactly same lining, so I am positive it's LW.

    Gotta wonder if TFL is part of the "effeminate social media blog"?

    "Many Sellers only parrot the misinformation gleaned by self-appointed "experts" on the effeminate social media blogs, chat rooms, sites, etc."

    Yes, and it is full of "metrosexuals". Gotta wonder about LW use of this borderline hate language.

    PS - The guy seems certainly intense:

    "COMPANY POLICY: LOST WORLDS aggressively protects its name and its loyal customers from those on eBay who attempt to take advantage of both. Accordingly, any use of the LOST WORLDS name or trademark on eBay without written authorization from us that infringes on our name, trademark, reputation and products in a dishonest and unlawful manner will be referred to eBay's VeRO division and the listing removed. The violator loses all insertion fees. We are frequently confronted with blatant theft of our images and descriptions by Pakistani mfgs. How surprising, right? What does one expect from a terrorist state FULLY complicit in the 9/11 attacks but unpunished."

    What BS. They can't legally prevent someone from selling something 2nd hand that is authentic and if eBay allows that type of control, then this is the end of them.

    They will probably answer that it is a fake even if it is not and that i should buy a new one from them
    Never mind i bought it, hopefully i will not regret it
    I'll post when i receive it, with better pictures

    Also i received a Schott JD1 recently, i'm wondering if i should do a post about it to show you my new baby

    Just wanted to say thanks for all your answers and precious informations

    For that price i think you really aren't taking that much risk.

    Metrosexual “Authorities” , effeminate... terrorists...


    What the hell is wrong with that guy?

    That to me meets the same attitude of another maker we all know here.

    Another one to add to the blacklist then although I’m not their audience with the thick and heavy leathers.

    Thanks, hopefully it will fit
    And you are right for that price no risk at all

    Btw i got an answer from lostworlds :
    "it's ours but a 1st generation one when we were auditioning operators and not indicative of current sizing/pattern/workmanship. Not recommended."

    Not even a hello, these guys are not very sympathic to be honest, i was thinking about buying a new one from them in one or two years but i'm not so sure after all of that

    stu is very straight forward in his mails, but i wouldnt hold that against him. hes no great fan of lengthy and time-intense mail exchanges, i guess. try to call him, i heard he's much nicer to talk to in person.

    Wasn't looking for intense mail exchange, just a hello
    But he took time to answer me and that is already nice of him ;)
