Ok, I have been wondering about a wierd detail that I don't recall seeing discussed. Alot of discussion goes on about the size of the pockets, placment, shape, ect..but what about that bit of piping across the top of the pocket, you know, that part of it that looks like a bar of leather running across the top? My old Wested from 1997 doesn't have it, and I never saw one that did until sometime after 2000. Compare that to the pocket on my Wings jacket.

I don't have screen grabs, but I am certain that I have seen both of these details in the movie and was wondering if this could be one way of distinguishing LC/Wested jackets from any others that had screen time. If anyone has close ups that would be helpful. I'm pretty sure that the scene outside the temple where Belloq is ripping Indy off looks like my old Wested.

This actually has been discussed here. I think it is worth further exploration. It's something 'Leather Commissionaires' did and of course Wested with their earlier fan jackets. I don't think it has been shown to be used on any jacket in the movie. I like the detail myself.

I think that is a detail worth trying to find.

I agree. I do remember that there has been some discussion on the piping and the amount of piping on jackets before. Hasn't Platon discussed this before? Maybe he can join in the discussion here.

By the way, Weston, can you take some more photos of that jacket and maybe put it in another thread? From the pocket shape and strap placement, it looks a lot like one of the Westeds that resemble the Blue Label jacket (or the BL resembles the Westeds, whichever you prefer) Wings put out some time ago. And both patterns resemble the BW jacket.

Sure, I'd be glad to get some more pics of it up when I get a chance to take some.

Here are a couple screengrabs. Here's the left pocket, narrow Wested style piping.

Right pocket, flap is tucked in, and really hard to see, but hopefully you guys are seeing it too.

I think this 'piping' is apparent in Raver Bar but absent in the Wing scene
I preper pockets with piping

I's likely to be a hangover from this LC jacket.

Certainly looks that way platon. There's a very fine line between the two designs depending on how the pocket has been distressed I think?

The upper stitch line appears closer to the edge, but not as close as in the eatly Wested Raider.
Does it look like the top edge of the LC pocket is 'folding over' slightly as well?
