This magnificent Russet Horsehide Trench
Coat is a slavishly-accurate copy of a very scarce pre-WWII Army coat in our Collection. In fact in our
years of collecting the only such example we've come across. A very heavy piece of outerwear in
3.0 - 4.0+ oz. (customer preference) chrome-tanned
Russet Horsehide. This Coat was a fully Custom Order, and is available as such
for the adventurous individual.
We include it here principally to show what LOST WORLDS has done and can do for the customer
who requires (and knows the value of) a non-production item. Certainly it's not
cheap to do something like this, which required its own pattern, to start, and
days for production. Yet, for those amazed at the ridiculous prices that
"designers" charge for their "creations," the lion's share of your buck going
for the marketing, the label, not the clothing, LOST WORLDS Custom Orders are, dare we say,
cheap at the price. Because they are the best of their kind in the world,
heirlooms and pricey "collectables" (ugh) in their own right in years to come.
The customer who ordered this already owns a large and unique sampling of LOST
WORLDS jackets and coats in many custom hides and styles, including deerskin,
elk hide, horsehide, Ventile, cowhide, USAF flame retardant Sage Sateen, etc. He
wanted a coat to exceed the very best of the sought-after vintage types on eBay
and the like. We made it for him.
