    I had been eyeing this jacket for a long time, it was the one that I thought could stand toe to toe with the J24, and it has not disappointed!

    The original that this one is reproduced from was a full custom order, I wonder how much input came from the buyer and how much from the maker. Probably pretty even from both sides as that generally seems to give the best results.

    Again, I don't know what to say apart that I really like it, the shade of Navy is just right as far as I am concerned.

    I wanted to write more about it but I find that pictures work better :)

    The brown liner is just superb. Love the color of this hide. Really gorgeous navy blue.

    If I could have one Lost Words jacket, it would be their leathertogs. Is your jacket cut different from their standard leathertogs pattern? I remember someone had a 46 in the classifieds recently and commented the jacket fit sung for 46. Would you say your jacket fits different from other Lost Words jackets?

    That was me. I hated having to let that jacket go as it was the coolest jacket I have ever owned. I just could not get the weight off to fit. I will probably order another from Stuart in the future but get it correctly fitted. The pockets alone made it just perfect for me personally. I would add that I am not one for stuffing my hands in my pockets but rather use them in utilitarian ways hence the tendency to prefer D Pockets which I consider the Leathertogs a cousin to.

    This jacket is just perfect - workmanship, navy blue horsehide, liner, hardware, etc. I guess Stu used 4oz+ HH? I was also considering this one but finally chose the J24 design. Anyway, congrats from my side and enjoy wearing it!

    I took one initially, it is tight but that's because I put on some weight recently, will get some better ones up later :)

    Yes, the fit is tighter than the J23/24.

    Agreed, that's one of the reason I got it, this pic had been haunting me for ages

    It's a lighter hide between 3 and 3.5oz. I did go with a black J24 first but could not resist the pull of this one either :D

    Congrats!
    I sold my buco j-24 to get this one (trying to keep my closet small and get rid of everything im not wearing/ dont like in some way). actually this design makes a lot more sense in terms of functionality for me. Definitely an endgame jacket. cant wait =)

    I had the chance to weigh the new jackets, this one stands at 2.99 kg / 6.58 lbs as opposed to the J24 which is at 3.57 kg / 7.86 lbs. There are differences whereas the navy HH is at around 3oz and the black one is meant to be a bit under 4oz. There is also the lining, quilt for the J24.

    On another note, the peacoat which is 3.5oz deer rests at 2.44 kg / 5.38 lbs.

    And the Custom aviator from JL is poised at 2.83 kg / 6.24 lbs

    Always love the early era riding jackets! Please remind me, does Stu take detailed measurements? At chest & waist to make sure the hem doesn’t flare out?

    He generally chooses a standard size depending on your height and weight. But you can discuss all details with him
