This is my TN1 Ford sized jacket in the original batch of shrunken lamb. About 4 years old now. Where'd the time go?

About 4 years old now.

Looks like it's held up well. :)

(But then, I would expect nothing less from a decent leather jacket.)

This looks great. This is my favorite leather for the Raiders jacket's that Tony made. Was never able to get it though.

Very nice! Side straps look almost as long as those on the Wested Hero?

Looks awesome and is indeed worth a fortune, not mentioning the love and attachment u ought to have developed towards it :D

Well I imagine they are as long as those that were on the Hero Hawaii ;) and it would make sense they would be as long as those on the Wested Hero which was based on a Nowak. This very jacket in fact.

Yet Wested have been criticised for the length of those straps.... Just goes to show that you really can't please some people. Thanks for the response :)

My first TN Shrunken Lamb Raiders also had the longer sidestraps.
Could be quite possible that the TN jacket Wested had to copy also had those longer straps.

I asked Tony once about the longer straps. He just said "sometimes they are longer" ;)

I prefer the long ones

Beautiful! Really great character!

I had one of the second generation, "finger pucker" variety. I loved the jacket but couldn't warm up to the leather. At times, I wish I'd kept it (for obvious reasons now), but I used the funds for my 747 Raiders which I love.
