: I have both a Wested (raiders)$270 and a Disney jacket $355
: both are very different. The disney (florida) jacket is quite abit heavier, distressed (very interestingly) and undoubtably more suitable for colder weather.
: Anyway I like both of them equally.

: Any idea's about how to distress the Wested jacket?? I sent an email to wested regarding this but never received a reply --and yeah the sleeves are very long (which I like as I'm a 42 Long - I've always had problems finding a good sleeve fit in any type of clothing so this was great!)

: Question: I'm new to the forum and was wondering A) how tall is Harrison Ford? B) How much does he weigh? Just curious!

: Thanks in advance!!

Hi there,

Do you know that you can also order a distressed version of the Wested
jacket? I talked to Mr. Botwright about it some time ago and he told
me that they actually but it into the dryer with some large pebbles. I'd
rather prefer to let a leather jacket age gracefully - with time and
use. There are however some ways to make it look more distressed: One
possible way would be to rub it against a rough brick wall or drag it
through sand or gravel. Also, if you want to do it very professional
you can use sandpaper (especially around the seames).

Harrison Ford is 6 ft. tall but I don't know his weight. However, I
think the jackets he wore in the movies were all 42, like yours.

By the way, you said you are new to the forum so you will probably wanr
to check out "Indy's Diggs", a page dedicated top all the Indy clothes
and equiptment. It also contains owner reviews from this forum and a
bunch of information. Just click the link below.
