: : 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 IndeeJonez@aol.com.
: : 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,
CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN MORE ABOUT THE JACKET WEATHERING AND THE PROCESS THE JACKET GOES THROUGH TO WEATHER IT??
