For a long time, I've wanted to order a 1947 Columbia MC jacket from Langlitz in horsehide, but unfortunately, they don't have any horsehide and may not ever again. They suggested goatskin and I saw some samples. I preferred the brown because it seems a little thicker, and I'm just wondering if a goatskin motorcycle jacket won't be authentic. Were old MC jackets of the 40's ever made in goatskin? Is it considered too thin to provide protection in a crash by itself? Also, if anybody has any experience with the Langliz goatskin, please post. Thank you.
P.S. The new Langlitz site is up. Better website, but the same bad pictures. www.langlitz.com
