classic Safari Bush Jacket, refined to LOST WORLDS
standards of workmanship, fit and material. The standard in
ages past in field (and movies) when the adventurous
embarked on journeys of safari and exploration yet, its
being a different world -- a different planet, it now seems

Our jackets are famous as
lightweight, eye-catching travel wear, with ample pockets for stowing digital
camera, lenses, phones -- all the excess but essential baggage of 21st Century
travel and life. You needn't hunt to appreciate the benefits of a field-designed
jacket. Form is function. The Bush Poplin Cotton exhibits excellent water
resistance; the Military Oxford has a Quarpel finish which renders it
waterproof. Perfect LOST WORLDS workmanship, each made at our own NYC factory by
a single skilled worker. Bellowed lower pockets. Belted, leather buckle. Closed
seam double needle construction. In a wide variety
of suitable fabrics, from Bush Poplin and military cottons to luxurious pure
Camel Hairs, Cashmeres by special order.

begun in business by selling the old Willis & Geiger line by
learned from the inside-out what customers need (and don't) and
how to furnish it, but without hyperbole, false claim, exaggeration
(or Made In China tags!). A return to masculine look and form. To the
best classic leather jackets in the world are now joined cotton,
wool and nylon jackets that hitherto were only available to our
wholesale customers by special order.
