    There was a 48 on sale on Ebay but wasn't me. Same jacket though. Not sure if olive on Aero will darken. It's darker than in the picture.

    But that makes me like it more now that most don't like it!

    The Maxwell is darker in person.

    All the poor opinions on the Lost Worlds makes me like it a lot more.

    I like them both! The LW reminds me of a vintage Bates (in 800 years it will look like one) and while I probably wouldn’t wear it all that much I do like it. Both are cool imho and while there are more appealing greens out there I wouldn’t hesitate to have either or both. Vastly different jackets for different moods/occasions.
    Plus, from the pics I’ve seen, the olive vic is actually closer to a pale grey...

    Thank you! I like the LWs because it's unique. The olive vincenza is much darker than in the picture. Appreciate the response friend.

    probably once age a bit, they say vicenza is veg tanned right? so with time one day it will get browner and darker, a browner and darker olive might look real unique and easier to match with.

  9. I don't care for either color. Not a fan of green leather at all. However, the Thedi green is more pleasing IMO. Probably because it has a slightly aged appearance with the 'wash' they use. I'll stick with the various shades of brown, blacks and grays.

    The LW— though I would do the stripes in white and the cafe racer collar. Killer jacket. Perfect match with my blacked out, gold-flaked white Harley.

    From the provided photograph I would go with the aero. Though the light color may be a bit loud I think the tonal stitching and simple, zipperless pockets balance it out for a pretty elegant result. I'm typically not especially attracted to aero products but that stands out, that's a great jacket. Was it a custom order? What is the lining? It would be great to see a photograph from the back.

    I attached the first image from the left model's page on the Lost Worlds website. Respectfully, I think this photo highlights its strengths more than the one you posted. I agree with those who have mentioned that it may look better worn. And maybe in a different lighting setup, or if it were zipped up. I would be curious to see other photos because I am curious what the (custom order?) collar looks like. I consider this model special and unique among what's on offer for leather jackets in 2020... really fantastic. and a testament to the Lost Worlds vision.

    Yeah man that’s a badass jacket and the dress collar makes it ten times cooler than the standard version.

    Two different shades of green at the same time! What are you trying to do to me? My eyes!

    But seriously though, that jacket looks much cooler worn than it does unworn.
    I also really like the fact that the green stripes are stitched in tan thread but the rest of the jacket uses black thread, it's a very nice subtle touch. Great fit, I like it.

    Thank you for the comment friend. I don't know much about lighting and photos. The original picture is more true to the color.

    I'd agree the stripes look so much better on the jacket when worn... but if you don't want people to like it then I'm not sure if I'm saying the right thing :)

    Lost Worlds IMO. I think the green stripes will blend in a bit after the jacket gets some wear n tear / dirt on those stripes. Maybe some pecards or similar conditioner on just the stripes to darken them up a bit. Also, think the striping would have looked much better if they were a tad thinner, maybe 1/4" less.
