I've been in search for a nice leather jacket for some time now. I stumbled across Schott and this forum and I knew immediately this is what I was looking for. I'm really interested in the Cafe Racers, but I had a couple of questions about the subject styles.
It seems like all of these jackets are the same style, but different materials (naked cowhide, steerhide, horsehide). What is the main difference in all of these leathers? What are there advantages/disadvantages to the different types of leather? It also looks like the 141 and 644 have zip out liners and the 641HH has a quilted lining. Is this correct? Are these jackets cut differently? Which one is the original design the others are based off?
I know I have a lot of questions, but I want to make sure I get the right jacket. I also ride motorcycles if that makes a difference in which one I should be looking at.
