Wanted to do a proper review on this jacket for a while but... Well, figured there isn't really much to tell. I mean, if you've ever handled a Schott Perfecto - or any other decent diagonal zipper leather jacket for that matter - you should know all there is to know about this style. I mean, regardless of the obvious superiority of material and construction, LW clearly took a lot of cues its more famous counterpart, the two jackets sharing nearly identical styling. Also, I don't feel there's any need to parrot all the positive things you've heard countless times about Lost Worlds. Perfect stitching, unparalleled construction, bulletproof leather, blah, blah... Yeah, most of it is true. So instead I'm going to address some of the things I personally don't like about the jacket. The sleeve openings are a bit too wide and the sleeves are kind of baggy. This jacket is definitely boxier than even the Perfecto which isn't a bad thing of course but... If you're after a slim fitting cross zip, I'm afraid you are going to have to keep on looking. But my biggest gripe about this jacket is the placement of the sleeve zippers. While the zippers are located at an identical position as on a Schott Perfecto (bottom sleeve panel) what happens is that they rub against the jacket and damage it. If the leather wasn't as tough as the good 'ol LW claims it to be, I'd expect the zippers to chew through the front panel within a couple of years. My jacket already looks like a very mean cat had a go at it and that's something I'm not overly happy about. This doesn't happen on a Schott jacket where the sleeve zippers never come into contact with the jacket, even though they're rotated the same way, toward the jacket. That's about it as far as the negatives go. Everything else is... Well... What you'd expect from a top shelf jacket. Not needlessly light-years ahead of the competition but I personally haven't handled a better quality leather jacket. What LW did here is they took this classic style and turned it into a tank of a proper motorcycle jacket. Is it worth the money? Definitely. Is it a $800+ better than the competition? Debatable. Does it do something that, I dunno, Vanson doesn't? I'd say it doesn't. So it's all down to whether you want a Lost Worlds leather jacket. Among all the things LW did right on this jacket, they absolutely nailed the shoulder gussets. Possibly the best I have ever, ever, ever had on any leather jacket and considering all the dozens of makers that can't get it right, this isn't a small feat. Anyway, I guess there isn't much else to say other than that I really, really love this jacket. On to the photos. . .
