This lesco is made of nice moderately heavy weight steer hide The jacket has no issue I can find, other than a missing snap for the detachable collar. The leather lining zippers belt is all in excellent condition. Includes a zip-out lining and removable belt. The hide has a similar texture and weight as the Connolly Steer hide on my Aero Patrolman's jacket. In fact, I purchased this Lesco to replace my Aero Patrolman's jacket that had too large of shoulders and balloon sleeves. But when the Aero failed to sell, I had JL take in the shoulders and taper the sleeves. As nice as the Lesco steer hide is, it's not as luxurious as Connolly. So I am selling the lesco for the cost of JL's alterations. The Lesco fits me perfectly.
