    Thanks man. It's really surprising how this off the rack size fits so well. I should look more into Japanese makers considering my build/size.

    I commented on your jacket before. I understand your comment about FC like mis-matched panels. Did you buy this jacket in or from Japan? I was stunned today when I opened a Lost World Japan market jacket and discovered just what you are saying. The one I received today is unused, zipped up and put on a shelf. The panels were placed and sewn as shown. An amazing Jacket and amazing coincidence.

    The collars of my Fine Creek and the LW are the same. Fine Creek must have seen this effect on a new jacket like this. Ironically LW may have considered this a 2nd? It is not their typical perfect.

    I knew I was dealing with a jacket aficionado when I saw how you carefully packed the jacket in dustbag and a proper sized box. I appreciate that.

    Did you figure out if it’s Havana or Walnut brown?

    Or maybe Japanese customers like the panels to be mismatched because they've seen that on FCLs, and that's why they've asked Stuart whether he could do something similar.

    @tmitchell59 had both and discussed them on his YouTube channel. (17:15)



    The havana definitely looks more orange and the walnut leans more towards seal. I guess ours are from a special batch :)

    @Captain Sensible do you know which color yours was (Bottom left)?

    These LW jackets pre-date Fine Creek or High Large. I will ask Lost World about the age of these jackets. They go back quite a few years.

    Well, I first wrote the listing as Havana as in my mind this was the colour I had. Then, it being eBay and taking care on the accuracy of the description, I checked the Eastman site and ended up similarly unsure so I just stated brown as the colour. To me it is not the dark chocolate/seal you might expect of the Walnut yet appears too dark to be Havana.

    So I hope that clears it up for you :D

    Cheers mate, now it’s clear as mud. :D
    Ps: I still think it’s Havana, either way, it’s a beautiful one.

    @Jin431 I'm so jealous that you have a brown one that fits. Looks amazing. Having to give up my brown one still makes me sad because that one is much more difficult to find. You will have no issue finding a black one.

    This is a cool jacket. I actually had one in standard black Vicenza but it was too wee and had to sell it on

    I bought it domestically from someone here in the US so can’t say if it originated from Japan. But seems likely considering your points. Here’s a better pic of the varying panels.

    Thank you. Now I get your old review about the jacket even more. I hope you get your brown mulholland sometime soon. The mobility and range of motion of this pattern is phenomenal. I really want a black one for sure.

    The caboose's shade of brown looks much richer than the vintage brown and the collar is just beautiful.
