Fine Creek Leathers - Leon - 1.3m Shinki Horsehide Leather
The Leon in 1.3m Shinki Horsehide leather is New for Fall 2022 from Fine Creek Leathers. This Shinki leather version of their Leon model similar to the Leon Custom and Leon NoStar ButterScotch has carried in the past but made of a 1.3mm Shinki tannery horsehide. Compared to the 2mil versions these 1.3mm leather versions have a shorter break-in period and overall have lighter weight to them which make this version a much more wearable version for all year wears.
Each Jacket is cut and sewn by hand with carefully selected batches of leather to have the most character while also having the leather grain match as closely as possibly. Since each leather jacket is comprised of multiple pieces of leather each one is truly unique and you will see some grain in different areas of the jacket.
The Leon Features two hand warmer pockets, one coin pocket and additional slash chest pocket. No Internal storage pockets on the Leon. Other exterior treatments are body belt, shoulder epaulettes, snap down lapels, and polished nickel hardware throughout.
