    For sale is a Lost World’s roadhouse in 4oz black horsehide.

    I think this is the best looking out all the Lost World’s jackets and this one fits me perfectly at a true to size 42. I’ve worn this a few times this season, but am finding that I just don’t like the super heavy leather jackets, and am mostly preferring a Filson wool mackinaw this year, so I’d like to cash out of this to use the funds for another project.

    This one is nearly perfect, I don’t see any wear marks and it is just barely breaking in, forming in the arms, etc. No odors, damage or issues of any kind. It still feels new to me. That said I am rating it an 9/10 to be safe.

    The only “issue” I have with this jacket is that the sleeve cuffs are cut a bit narrow for me (pictured below). I can get the jacket on with the cuffs buttoned with no problem, but would need to unbutton them when taking the jacket off. I wear this with the cuffs unbuttoned just as I do when I wear a heavy wool shirt, and it is very comfortable.

    See photos for measurements.

    $750 delivered in the US only, PPFF.

    Thanks for looking and questions welcomed.

    I have this very same model. Roadhouse by Lost World's in 4 oz.
    Except mine has a sleeve length of 26 inches- perfect for me and given to my 20 year old son as a birthday gift. The leather is stellar and in my opinion, is the best fitting LW jacket especially with those underarm footballs. The underarm footballs make a nice positive difference in ability to move your arms and reach forward unencumbered. Wish all jackets had similar construction.
    GLW! A fantastic jacket. This model has those fine-looking bakelite buttons too.
    Great design and a jacket you can wear almost anywhere.

    Do you find the torso/waist tight?

    Confirmed, I purchased this jacket from Hh121 in September. I forgot that he had the sleeves shortened, but in my opinion the sleeve length is perfect and fits the jacket. If the sleeves were any longer they would be disproportionate and I have pretty long arms.

    Here are some fit pics that should bring some clarity to this. I'm 6 ft and 180 this morning. The sleeve length looks and feels perfect to me, but please judge for yourself.

    I’ve always thought this was such a great jacket style. Both minimalist and distinctively cool. I remember trying one on once, and the cuffs did seem very tight, not sure why LW does that on this jacket.

    This used to be my favorite style by LW. I think he narrows the cuffs so it wouldn't seem like a shirt, which it does resemble a lot.

    My personal preference is tight cuffs. Just a personal preference.

    Thanks for your interest but dealing with international shipping just isn’t worth it to me right now. Appreciate it though.

    I am surprised this beautiful jacket is still available at this price.
    This is a winning design and the leather is outstanding.

    Me too! Luckily this is one that fits great and that I'm more than happy to hold on to. Thanks to TFL I just have way too many jackets...

    @Kunja How easy is it to use the buttons on the pockets? Given the thickness of the leather.

    Quite difficult, actually. The sleeves unbutton and button with no problem but the pockets are tougher. I actually never unbuttoned one of them until trying it for this response.
