    This Lost Worlds has started the break-in process nice grain developing. The horsehide belt, a $200 addition is included. Heavy Lost Worlds 4+ oz hide, the only jacket I have in competition weight-wise is my 40s Star Glove CHP. No size or wear just grain and some relaxation of the leather. I purchased this Trojan from a respected Forum member worried it would be too resistive in the chest. I lost weight and it turns out the jacket is large at the shoulders and waist on me.
    Chest 23 - 23-1/2 inches
    Shoulders straight across back 19-1/2 inches seem larger to me
    Sleeves from shoulder along the curve 26 inches
    Sleeves from pit straight 18-1/2 inches
    Back from neck seam 23 inches

    $775 shipped US PP & FF or add 3% if not FF
    $1,750 from Lost World with shipping
    Priced 44% of what it will cost from LW and better than new with the break-in and you can see the characteristics of this hide no surprises

    I going to let this sale run one week before I list on the bay. I think this jacket is a good deal

    The weight is 7.03 lbs using my son's digital fish scale he uses for bass competition no hanger. This is not one of Stewards dumb down sale jackets. I do not know the age I know the condition like I said better than new I am not putting BS on the forum. If the previous owner elects he is welcome to reply with the age of the jacket.

    It’s about 10 years old and was ordered with the thickest horsehide Stuart had available at the time. The jacket was considered a grail jacket by myself and was not worn that much over the years. It is in excellent condition.

    Is the back measurement accurate?
    23" back on a 44 with 26" sleeves feels very very short...

    What is the bottom hem measurement if you don't mind?

    The Lost World Trojan is cut based on a short jacket. I believe the length is the main reason Wilbur sold the jacket he was on the fence for months before he decided to let the jacket go. I am fine with the back length the jacket hit me about mid belt at my back and covers my belt at my waist. I do not think this jacket will work for you. I will dig up some fit pictures and post

    Thanks, just double checking it wasn't a typo. You are right that 23" would be far too short for me, it would be a very nice leather crop top on me.

    Dear God...

    This is a madness of a price! For this kind of jacket, that's practically gifted. If I didn't have a jacket on order, I'd get this right this second.

    And why are all the recent LW jackets all of the sudden the nicest that I've ever seen!? I don't recall LW leather being this beautiful up until recently.

    Also, is the jacket stitched with a brown thread or am I just seeing things?

    I will ship to Europe for the cost. It will take a larger than flat rate box. I shipped a large jacket to Russia UPPS priority two weeks ago the cost was $97

    sorry guys one of my mates has convinced me to hold on to this trojan for now. I am withdrawing for the sale. I did not receive a commitment to purchase any action no fault.
