Yeah, this is THE jacket. The "Raiders of the Lost Ark" Indiana Jones jacket the world fell in love with, myself included!
Coyle's Clothing has produced this awesome replica of the original "Raiders" jacket. Cut from soft lambskin leather, the jacket features two flight jacket style cargo pockets, side entry hand warmer pockets, single panel bi-swing back, side adjustment straps, side vents, inside chest pocket, and measurements and details taken from actual filming jackets. The leather is dark brown, with a finish that will age to give it a natural, broken-in look. This jacket is the product of years of painstaking research to make it as much like the one you saw on the big screen as possible. We think it is without equal.
Make no mistake, these jackets are far from "costume" fare. They are department store quality, suitable for everyday use. Many of Coyle's jacket owners find that our jacket has quickly become their favorite!

Although this jacket has been copied by many people, including the man who made them for the movies, I have never copied anyone's work. I always felt that no one made exactly what I saw on screen. The original UK tailor, Peter Botwright, was the only one in a position to make an exact duplicate, but even he had trouble doing it, instead deferring to fans for direction. My research has been ongoing to this day.
My main references have been the film (the only version I have concerned myself with is Raiders of the Lost Ark), rare reference photos of screen-used jackets, jackets on exhibit, measurements of jackets in private collections, and Tony Nowak's "Raiders" replica of an original of mysterious origin. But recently I acquired what I believe to be the most definitive reference of all.
A few years ago I stumbled across a person in the UK who was selling an odd leather jacket. It was bomber style jacket with odd cuffs made of wrinkly lambskin leather. The seller was unaware of this, but I knew from the label that it was made by the Peter Botwright during the Raiders era. Although clearly not an "Indy Jacket" clone, I thought the leather was interesting so I bought it and stored it away. Several years later, when I pulled it out to take a closer look, I realized that the pattern was, fundamentally, the basis of the Raiders jacket. Certain changes were made to make it usable, perhaps after the first "prototype" jacket was delivered for the first day of filming, such as the addition of underarm gussets to raise the armscye to improve freedom of movement, and the size and location of the opening of the "action back" (my jacket had short openings in the side seams.) But now when I watch the jacket in the film (yes, I "watch" costumes!) I see so many unexpected ways in which this pattern is absolutely right that I am convinced that the DNA is absolutely the same.
Based on this, I believe that my jacket is the closest in design to the original "hero" jacket that has been offered.

Absolutely blown away by this jacket, the age on the leather is incredible and the attention to detail is amazing. I think it might be my favourite Indy jacket that I currently own, I really hope the jackets come back in stock because they are a great option for a Raiders style jacket.
Great comfortable fit, correct dimensions, fantastic accurate colouring, both inside and out, ...probably the best Indy jacket out there. The only annoying thing for me is that this lot had a very wrinkly pebbly skin, I personally prefer a smoother hide. Otherwise phenomenal all 'round! Get one!
Just received my jacket! (Two days early at that). I loved this jacket the second I put it on. Perfect fit, the leather looks, feels and smells great. It’s also very soft and supple too. I had a Todd’s jacket many years ago and it unfortunately was stolen. So happy to have one again.
I was hesitant to order the jacket at first due to the price and the shipping, but is was worth every penny. The quality of the jacket is superb and it fits perfectly. If your looking for either a great replica or just a nice jacket to wear on the day-to-day, you'll be absolutely satisfied with this
This is the second Indy jacket I have bought from Todd´s website over several years since it first appeared here. Both were gorgeous replicas of the on-screen version, but this latest one is my favorite! The display images are very true to the one purchased. Thanks again, Todd!
I got the jacket not just for the Indy cosplay but for everyday use. It's a very nice jacket! Goes well with almost any clothing. The leather is very nice and soft. I love it.
This Indiana Jones jacket was so worth waiting for. Great fit, the grain and color look spot on screen accurate and the leather has a wonderful soft feel to it.
I received my Indy jacket after waiting a whole year and it was worth it , it fits me perfectly, the leather is awsome quality, thank you Todd's Costume
I loved the smell of the leather. It was a great jacket, however; I had to return mine because of sizing issues. I like my jackets to have a little room to them, this particular jacket was more form fitting. I think it worked well with the smaller sized and not so well with the bigger sizes.
