I still have scant information, and due to the fact that I don't speak or read Japanese, and machine translation is still poor, I haven't been able to find out much. Currently it my understanding that Scarecrow is/was the name of a store in Japan, and they apparently sold Langlitz jackets that had the srote label in them along with the Langlitz label. There's no explanation of the Yah-Ta-Hey labeled jackets that they also sold that I've been able to find. Some have speculated they could have been made by Langlitz. I am skeptical about that, but it remains a possibility. I think an inquiry to Langlitz is in order to settle the matter. There has to be a Lounge member who is fluent in Japanese who could step in and offer better translation of what little information I've been able to scrape off the web on this mystery.
