Found this jacket on ebay last Saturday, the jacket still needs break in and doesn't show much grain. The knits are in perfect condition. The leather is veg-tanned steerhide. This hide is very soft and isn't thick, bit like lambskin I'd say. Don't know how it will age. And I really the repro crown zipper used on this jacket. If the seller of this jacket is on this forum, I'd say thank you to him.
