Looking at this A-1 above and just can't believe in how cool capeskin may look sometimes. It seems this jacket shows possibly even more grain than some horse/steer hides.
That's just impossible, amazing. Very cool A-1.

We defeat ourselves by having too many jackets, wearing them improves them as we all know.
John, I'm sure you know well that not every jacket (esp. of ones made of capeskin) might look so gorgeous after even years of wearing it.
To be honest, I know only one more suitable example which looks so cool too - I mean @Persimmon 's gorgeous A-1.
Of course, regular good wearing may cause to such nice grainy look, but not with every jacket - that's what I mean.
It isn't quite common situation, esp. with capeskin.
This one looks amazingly cool. Phenomenal.
Nice purchase, congrats!

The rare jacket that would appeal as much to a blind person as a sighted one! The veg. tanned capeskin already has a magnificent hand - the .50 cal. treatment* would give it such delicious variation in grain - and then, the wear he put on it! A feast for the fingers.

* not weathered, but specially treated and manikin dried

Without doubt the best jacket I have ever owned, and only 300 gbp apart fron the charge due to ebay effing Global shipping.
