Here is where you can get creative with your Indy jacket, from sizing to skin to special requests. You get a choice of over 10 amazing skins which are updated constantly with new offerings. Each jacket is handcrafted within our Kent or London factory and made exactly to your order.
This particular jacket is the Raiders, it has a medium sized collar, no studs which makes the storm flap different from the Crusade and it is considered the easiest fit of all the collection. The standard specifications for the custom made are one leather bound inside pocket, leather facing supporting the zip, two-way hand warmer pockets, action pleats and side vents - the rest is left down to your personal choice.
We ask you to carefully go over your measurements before placing an order, once the order is placed it's rare we are able to change your measurements - there's a link below with a measurement guide (under helpful links).
Break down of the options available
Side Straps There's a choice of D-rings on the side straps (shaped like a D) or buckles (just your regular buckles), they are both good choices, neither one is better than the other. You can have an 'X-box stitch' this is just an X stitch that goes into the box that attached the side strap to the jacket.
Extra Inside Pocket You already get one plain piped inside pocket, if you select "Yes" to this option you'll get another pocket, they are positioned on both sides of the chest.
Gussets These are a small triangle shaped material that go underneath the armpit of the jacket, it would not be seen unless you raised you arms, it is to help arm movement and can be popular with bikers for this reason.

Wested did it again...
They met my expectations… and then some! This is my second Wested jacket. My first, a pre-distressed cowhide Raiders, is now 20 years old and still going strong. Never the less I got myself a Raiders dark brown novapelle custom Raiders and it’s absolutely AMAZING. The quality of the leather is fantastic, it feels soft and shapes well when worn, yet it is very strong and durable. The dark brown colour has a slightly cold grey under tone that looks amazing. The craftsmanship goes without saying, Wested always delivers the absolute best quality.
Highly Recommended Indy Jacket
Thank you for an outstanding Indy leather jacket, I ordered the Raiders distressed leather and custom made, this was done and delivered in less than 10 days, amazing. The quality of the jacket is 2nd to none, a great fit and feel, I am very happy especially considering the price which these days is very very good value for money, and of course, it looks the part!
Excellent product, excellent service
I ordered a custom fitted jacket, i also changed the leather from the lambskin to the copper novapelle, both were well worth the additional cost. It arrived this morning and it is gorgeous. I fully recommend anyone ordering to custom fit the sizes (arms, back, chest) This leather is stunning, it has a good weight, it has great colour, very subtle pattern in the leather. It is extremely well made.
Got for my birthday, wanted an Indie jacket since the film came out (so im no spring chicken) Service from Wested was superb. Now looking at other jackets they do, do NOT tell my Mrs. Thanks Wested, an awesome Jacket.
I received my custom made Raiders Indy jacket today. Wow, I can’t believe I actually have an authentic Indy jacket. I have wanted and dreamed of owning this jacket from the very first time I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in theaters in 1980. The look, the quality and the fit is perfect. I could not be more pleased with the look, feel, fit or the quality of the jacket. This is my Holy Grail. For the folks at Wested, thank you so very much. What a dream come true.
