Fine Creek Leather just released one beautiful jacket, the Shinki leather version of their Leon model.This is the the Leon Custom jacket we’ve always carried but with the belt and epaulets intact and made of a 1.3mm Shinki tannery horsehide; these have a shorter break-in period and slightly lighter weight which is great for all weather wear.

Fine Creek makes some of the most beautiful horsehide jackets we've seen. Using a vegetable tanned Japanese horsehide, which ages in a fairly fast manner, they cut and sew these jackets in their own studio in Tokyo. The quality of stitching is as good as it gets for a leather jacket, and we've not seen many jackets age as well as these do. Depending on the panel they'll use a different type of stitch thread and thread count to achieve puckering in certain areas for added character.

Care: We recommend not doing much to these jackets outside of wearing them. The natural oils in this level of quality of horsehide is enough for quite a few years. At the most Fine Creek suggests to wipe down the jacket every few months with a damp soft towel, and once every couple of years to rub in some Mustang Paste leather conditioner into the jacket.
