In Reply to: WESTED JACKET, IS IT LIKE THE ONE IN RAIDERS OR LAST CRUSADE? posted by IndeeJonez on April 14, 1998 at 18:39:04:

: Can anyone tell me whether or not the wested jacket is like the one in raiders, or the last crusade? The one in last crusade has a bigger collar as well as snaps on the storm flap, while raiders has a smaller collar and no snaps. And I think the one in temple is slightly longer than the other 2 movies. Can anyone tell me which version(raider,temple,last crusade)of the jacket is made by wested? Also are you able to request the movie style you want? Also I believe the lining in raider was satin or silk, and the other films it was cotton. Any info provided is appreciated. Post your reply, or if you want to, e mail me at

: Thanks for any info you may have

Well, as far as I know the Wested Jacket is more like the one in 'Last
Crusade'. You're right, the jacket had a silk lining in 'Raiders' and
a cotton lining in the sequals. You can choose which inside lining you
want to have in your jacket. The jacket is individually handcut and so
you have to order them your exact measurents or your exact regular
size. I ordered them sleeve lenght, chest size, height and the width
across from shoulder from shoulder. Another point is the finish: Your
jacket will come in new condition but you can also order the
distressed look. They put the jacket a few minutes in the tumble dryer
with large pebbles in order to achieve the weathered look (also used
in the movies). I'd say let nature and time do it for you. You'll know
every scratch and the jacket will soon "tell it's own story". At least
I think so and ordered mine in new condition. If you want to make your
jacket look a little bit distressed your can find yourself a nice
brick wall and rub yourself (the jacket) against it like cats do. It's
made of soft dark brown lamb skin - so be careful...
The jacket is known under the name 'Raiders Jacket' and costs about
140 pounds. You can pay by cheque, eurocheque, bank draft, credit card,
bank transfer, etc.
I'd highly recommend this jacket. It's a great collectors item and a
good, high-quality leather jacket.
If you've got further questions I'd be glad to answer them - just post
a message on the forum or email me-

Hope this helps you,
