It's basically 'field gear', field clothes, and it's his own stuff. It's a lot more realistic that a tough adventurer from the 1930s doesn't have a vast wardrobe full of differing adventure style...

Yeah I would probably recommend to anybody wanting a first jacket an OTR Wested. I've seen some really excellent cosplays with OTR Wested jackets. A bit of distressing goes a long way, and the OTR...

Cazadora is a thing of beauty. The LC Novapelle looks great there. Would you say it's unwearable in milder weather? I was thinking of ordering something in it but hear we are at the start of spring.

Try adjusting the straps, make them tighter. The only reason I can imagine it's sticking out at the back if the straps are loose. Haven't had this issue with any of my jackets. Or perhaps it's a...

That dark novapelle looks great. I recently saw a Last Crusade Hero jacket in Dark Novapelle and it looked amazing. My next Wested jacket might be in that skin. Probably the LC Hero.

Steele and Jones is definitely worth the extra money; you're paying for the attention to detail only a fan vendor will give you. That said if you know how to distress a jacket properly you can work...

No I wouldn't compare it. I cannot watch the SW prequels, whereas I've watched Crystal Skull several times.

Really, wow. I suppose they were thinking of his age, but why would he want to come out of retirement for that.

Yes the block is the thing. HJ without the block is just a name, as the business has changed hands several times over the years. Unlike say Wested, who had Peter Botwright still running Wested until...

Would have been the John Hurt role (slightly tweaked). Not surprised he turned it down. John Hurt was wasted, playing a sort of idiot who doesn't speak until near the end.

Size 42 Relic hunter is a 23.5 backlength. Which is about the movie length and size. Sleeves are 25 3/4

I think they do custom options, but I would leave the backlength alone personally.

It's an exact stitch by stitch copy of the jacket worn by Harrison Ford in the film. So it's going to fit like that basically. All the details are on the BK website. :up:

I think he left HJ and took the block with him, because the HJ hats just don't quite look right now if you've been following their instagram.
