That’s beautiful goat… Much nicer than the stiff pebbled type of goat we usually see pics of … IMO .Here’s a Ryder half belt in a pretty thick black goatskin. I’ve had it about 6 years and, at least before Covid, was putting several hours a day in the jacket about 100 days a year. It fits like a baseball glove and is broken in well, but yes of course it looks nothing like cxl after a similar amount wear.
