    Might as well get this out there. Bought in Japan and probably sold there as part of LW Japanese market jackets. It has no LW tag I can find, so I'm assuming it is Lost Worlds.

    Has been stored with the zip front closed. It is has mis-matched panels that give the jacket a Vintage vibe with LW quality. Fine Creek is using the mismatched panels on some of their jackets. I wonder if Fine Creek saw jackets like this?

    I've owned a lot of LW jackets, but never one like this.

    There is some storage imprint on one sleeve. At least I assume it is that. It is pictured and is not seen unless looked for. With the crazy grain on the jacket it is not noticeable.

    I could go on an on, but the pictures tell the story. Sorry, too small for me, so no fit pictures.

    Price: $900 shipped in CONUS. This new old Stock (NOS).

    Picture Album Here.

    That sums it up pretty Well!

    A person could easily order a new one, but it won't be like this and will cost a whole lot more $$.

    Save money and get a unique jacket.

    Heck of a deal if it fits you! I actually really like the panels with crazy grain sprinkled throughout this jacket, gives it a really nice vibe. Terry, as is very well known is fantastic to work with as well.

    Gorgeous jacket! I'm tempted. The only issue is that it's at least an inch and a half longer in the body and an inch longer in the sleeves than I would want right now. I really love that purple lining, though haha.

    Why so Sad?

    Looks like the Freewheelers lining. Since it has no LW tags I thought it may be a Freewheelers.

    What a curious comment.

    I've got a deal for you. I will send you this jacket USPS Priority Mail med. flat rate box $15.50. You try it on model it, pictures. You know what to do. If you want it we will discuss, if you don't just send it back. Do an article for your website. If you don't like the jacket, do be kind. Have some fun. It will only cost you return postage or a bit more if you buy the jacket. I get some publicity for the jacket and a free Modeling session.

    I think the Trojan will look great on you, if you wear a size 40.

    I can get it out tomorrow if no one buys it!

    Beautiful jacket. This isn’t LWs 4+oz hide, correct? It’s the 3oz. If yes, I also had a Trojan in this hide. Very nice grain & easy to wear.

    @tmitchell59 You mentioned $900 CONUS...I live in Germany. That's why I'm sad as it would have been a perfect fit and the leather thickness is just perfect for non-motorcylce jacket. Fortunately you found a buyer who will appreciate your jacket! @dudewuttheheck Congrats, very good decision. I'm sure it will fit you well and I'm looking forward to fit pics.

    If you're more certain about the measurements for you, I would say you should go for it.

    It's a great opportunity for me, but I'm not as confident on the measurements for me. Of course, I you could also just wait and hope that I do indeed end up thinking it's too long haha :p

    Haha very true. Small price to pay to give this a shot and as Terry said, get a review out of it, a new brand that I haven't handled previously, and some fit pics for him. Can't go wrong.

    You might be surprised, it might fit great.
    Before LW i was speccing my sleeves and back at 26.5".
    WHen i ordered my J-23 i just asked for "a size 42 with the length of a sizze 44"
    To my surprised the jacket ended up with 25.25" back and sleeve length and it fits great.
    I would have previously expected a jacket with these numbers to be too short but it is not.
    You might have the same surprise with this one. I hope...

    It's the opposite for me, though. This one is a little longer than I would personally want. Hey, maybe it will still work out though.
