Specialists to the Film, TV & Leather Industry
Much as Indiana Jones travelled the globe in search of The Ark of the Covenant, many a budding adventurer has been tirelessly seeking the most authentic version of the original Raiders of the Lost Ark leather jacket... And here it is.
After 30 years we go back to our original Hero jacket pattern available to yours truly.
Made to order using the original patterns created by Wested Leather Co Ltd for Harrison Ford back in 1980.
The Wested Leather HERO Jacket is as close as you can come to the real thing... unless you steal one from the Smithsonian Museum or the Lucasfilm Archive, neither of which we recommend.
The jacket carries the original Leather Concessionaires label and differs in fit from the modern easy fit Wested Leather Raiders jacket that we sell today and does not fit like a regular jacket.
The jacket has no inside facings enabling the nickel zip to go right to the bottom of the jacket but may result in a wavering effect.
The collar is cut so it hangs off the back neck.
The oversize shoulder width means the sleeves are set off the shoulder and are narrower and tapered.
The inside pocket is a leather finished type with a single antique brass buckle for the side straps.

Guide Measurements for Raiders Hero Jacket
|Size||Sleeve||Shoulder||Back||Pit 2 Pit|
CHEST - Measure under your arms, under the fullest part of your chest
PIT TO PIT - Pit To Pit is the actual measurement of a jacket laid flat, zipped up and measured from one side to the other (It is Not Your Body Measurement)
SLEEVE LENGTH - Measure the arm from the top of your shoulder down to where you want the cuff to end
BACK LENGTH - Measure from the nape of your neck to where you want the jacket to end
SHOULDER - Measure from the neck to the end of the shoulder
For best results, take measurements over a t-shirt. If your measurements fall between sizes, we suggest that you size up for a better fit.
