The #141 is a Naked leather Cowhide, which means there is no finish on the leather. It has a non-shiney appearance with a softer pliable hand. The # 641 is a Steerhide leather which has a finish on the leather, a shiney appearance and a stiffer rigid hand. Both leathers are 1.2-1.4mm in thickness and a 3 oz. wt. which is very durable. On the style # 641 the patterns are the original sizing when this jacket was made 50 years ago and they are a smaller cut, we do advise to order a size larger. Due to our customer's demands to preserve the original #641 jacket, we have maintained and produce the jacket to the original specifications The #141 patterns have been adjusted to a more updated fit.
We do advise you to purchase the jacket in your chest size, but every individual does have a preference in what a comfortable fit is for him or her. We recommend your measure your chest from under the arm and slightly puffed out. For styles 618 & 641 order one size larger.
Please take into consideration when ordering any motorcycle jacket they tend to have a snug fit and taper in at the waist for protection against the elements of the weather when riding. Once you have determined your chest size allow for any zip-out liner in jacket, and if heavy undergarments will be worn under the jacket also if you prefer a looser fit. If you would like to send us your measurements for sizing, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I can advise you of the measurements I need to advise you. Gail

When you mention the 641 having a somewhat of a shiny appearance, is it really shiny?

The steerhide leather is not real shiney, the shine is due to the leather having a finish. The naked leather has no finish so the leather has a duller appearance. Gail
