The leather is black (tea core) shinki horsehide in a grainy vintage look and wonderful fragrance. It drapes very nicely and feels soft. The lining is a nice olive flannel but it feels more like wool. The sleeves are flannel with colorful maillot checkered pattern. It has comfortable side warmer pockets.
The jacket zipper is a whizzer, and the front pocket has vintage look ball and chain zip. Freewheelers jackets are rarely seen jacket in the US. There are only a few specialty shops that rival the quality of these. I bought it from Japan recently and wore it once. I did remove the tags (including).
At 59 175lbs, I can wear the jacket well without zipping it, but if I zip it, it looks too tight on me. Seems to be the intended look as you can go to Frewheelers site and see the models wearing this jacket.
