: : : : : Hi Max!

: : : : : Ich hatte Dir vor zwei Tagen mal eine Mail zu der Jacke geschrieben.

: : : : : Mich wuerde interessieren wie lange die Lieferung nach Deutschland
: : : : : gedauert hat und welche Maße Du angegeben hast.

: : : : : Kannst mir ja ansonsten direkt mailen:

: : : : : CU
: : : : : Jan

: : : : Ich hab Dir gerade ein email mit den Antworten geschickt,

: : : : sorry das ich nicht früher geantwortet habe...

: : : : -Max

: : : I'm not sure that it's any of our business, but could you
: : : please translate your conversation with Jan because not all of us
: : : speak German (though I did live there for three years) and I'm sure
: : : that I'm not the only one who is curious about this.
: : : I noticed that I failed to answer your question about whether
: : : the Last Crusade jacket has the buttons on the storm flap zipper cover.
: : : In answer to yourquery, yes it does, but the Raiders jacket, obviously,
: : : does not. You can see a very good picture of the button on the Crusade
: : : jacket by looking in the book The Films of Harrison Ford. On page 27
: : : there is a picture of the cover of Orbit Video magazine from January of
: : : 1990. On it is a close-up of Harrison Ford from Last Crusade, in full
: : : Indy garb. You can clearly see a brass button swen onto the top of the
: : : zipper flap. I have heard that there is one at the bottom as well.

: : : -Dale

: : Dale, Jan just had sent me an email concerning the Wested two
: : days ago. However I forgot to answer it and so he asked again how long
: : the delivery to germany took and what measurements I ordered for my
: : jacket. In my "follow up" I informed him that I've just send him an
: : email to answer his questions. For those who are interested: The
: : delivery took about 5 weeks (delay because of heavy snowfall in
: : London and Eastertime). I ordered Mr. Botwright sleeve size,
: : height, width from shoulder to shoulder and my chest size: All values
: : in cm (I converted them to inch as a precaution but Wested can also
: : handle measurements in cm).

: : Thanks for the information about the storm flap. My jacket doesn't
: : have buttons, does yours have? So it's really more the 'Raiders-style'
: : jacket. What a pity! I was more interested in a 'Crusader' jacket. But
: : it's still an awesome, great leather jacket (ever noticed that some
: : of the messages posted to the forum more or less sound like
: : advertisements for the Wested jacket. But they are actually true.
: : We should join together and write a book: The 'Raiders' Jacket - A
: : comprehensive Reference to the fabulous Indiana Jones Jacket...

: : Hey, that's great Dale! Where did you live in Germany if I may ask?

: : Regards,

: : -Max

: Well, since you asked, we were stationed at Hahn Air Force Base,
: but lived in a small town about a mile away called Barenbach, which was
: next to Zoren. I think that's how you spell it!!! Anyway, in the Hunsruck hills.
: My jacket does not have the buttons on the flaps, as the one in Crusade does,
: though they would be handy in order to keep the flap against the jacket, rather
: than slightly sticking out. But, since Raiders is my favorite movie of all time,
: I'm not complaining. Whenever I order the hat from Herbert Johnson, I
: am asking for total Raiders design, including the crease, steaming, and
: trim. Unlike the jacket, you can ask for the design from whatever movie
: you like best. My outfit is total Raiders original.

: -Dale

Dale, thanks for the info. I actually didn't know that you can choose
the design of the hat at Herbert Johnson. As I already wrote I like
LC best. I think it was a perfect movie. I quite like the plot, music,
etc. That fact that Sallah and Brody appeared again was really nice and
Sean Connery was perfect for the role as Henry Jones Sr. The motorcycle
chase and the tank scenes are just brilliant. Please don't
misunderstand me, 'Raiders' is an awsome movie as well and it is
probably better having the original 'Raiders' outfit because this is how
the world first saw Indy. In additions to that the clothes/equiptment
of ToD and LC are actually based on 'Raiders' with just a few changes
and additions.
