Do you guys know if wested uses the same collar on the hero as they did on the old version standard authentic lamb OTR jackets.

Anyone who has both jackets can show comparison photos?

I don't have any OTR's, the closest would be my 'Raiders' jackets.

The Hero has a concave outer edge and the 'Raiders' tends to be slightly convex.

I've had both, the old "Raiders" pattern and the new "Hero" from Wested and the collars on each are very different.
I HATED the collar on my old Raiders. Like KT stated, it was more convex and gave it a rounded look (especially at the tips). The Hero is more pointed at the tips, and to me, looks much more like the collars on the Nowak jackets.
Also, even though the collars were physically very close to the same size, the Hero collar looks much smaller due to how it lays.

Here's the best pic I have of my old "Raiders" (I no longer have this jacket)

The collar on my Hero acts more like the movie jackets. The collar stand wants to collapse inwards and it causes the collar to droop down

To me the pre-Hero Wested Raiders has always looked / vibed more like a Last Crusade jacket. I've always wondered if Peter used his LC patterns to base the production of his pre-hero Raiders on.

I thought the same thing
