A good number of jackets made within the 1930s and ‘40s were made from horsehide. Back when industrialization first began, horses were considered redundant, and an abundant supply of them drove horsehide prices down.
Compared with goatskin, horsehide is heavier and gives better insulation. While goatskin is more grained, horsehide features a way smoother, shinier and brighter appearance. Regarding strength, horsehide is the clear winner, although goatskin tends to be the more flexible of both. Horsehide also has an excellent level of water resistance.
Our horsehide leather is initially drum dyed before being finished with a wax and oil coating to give it a shiny surface that dulls with wear. This leather will just become more beautiful with age!
Our jackets are based on the original pattern and therefore very small in size. We don’t expect you to accurately measure your own body. The best option is to take an old jacket that fits you right and compare the measurements. Check how to measure a jacket correctly here.
