    This probably isn't thread-worthy, especially compared to some of the stuff you guys have been posting recently but then again, where else could I talk about it if not here? :)

    I've been looking for a really cool leather vest since forever. Nearly gave up on the search until someone linked this in the deals thread two weeks ago. Had 20+ people watching it at the time, I threw in a single bid and a week later, woke up to a notification from eBay telling me that I've won.

    Anyway, the vest arrived a few days ago and I absolutely LOVE it!
    I know it's actually just a Ryder jacket without sleeves - I guess that makes it a true and proper cut-off - but honestly, I don't think I would have preferred the thing as much if it was whole.

    This vest is my first product from Lost Worlds.
    It's really heavy, 6lb according to the box. Leather is exactly 2mm thick. Super stiff, stands on its own. Extremely heavy finish, don't think this can even get soaked in the rain. Nice, chunky hardware all around. Central zip has been replaced with an awesome beastly Talon (there was an original zipper in one of the pockets, no. 5 Talon).

    I've been wearing it every day since it arrived and don't plan on leaving the house without it any time soon. It works over a t-shirt, it works over a trucker jacket or a shirt... It simply goes well with anything. Best part is that it's wearable even in this summer weather.

    Anyway, if you're after a high quality leather waistcoat, talk to LW. Seriously impressive product. But on to the photos...

    Sweet find, I can't believe you're wearing it outside though. Don't ever sell it!

    I love the versatility of vests. This one is awesome. Great score. We should start a “show us your vests” thread.

    I looked at that on ebay. The lining was removed at some point then the former owner sewed the label back onto the leather. I passed due to that but for the price, it is a pretty cool vest and I am glad someone here bought it.

    I was going to reline it if I picked it up but then there would be holes from the tag left.

    Cool pick up.

    That it didn't have the lining is what got me so interested in it. Ought to get more use out of it that way and I guess the previous owner must've figured the same. I didn't know the label was sewn back onto the leather afterwards, though! Must've been done by LW though or someone equally capable. Same as the replaced zipper because it's done so well, you can't tell anything's been done to it. They've gone thru all the original stitch holes at the front.

    Completely unlined! :D
