Extremely cool lining. The jacket looks to be otherwise identical to the Japanese market Schott 613US and 613UH [same jacket, but the former is steerhide and the latter horsehide]. I thought for a while about proxying one of the two, but the 613S/613SH sold in the US are basically the same thing, with de-Japanized sizing (still a slim fit, but suited to taller frames).
I remember being genuinely impressed by the long leathers when I saw the film as a teenager. I've wondered how common they were even at the time– Shaft is obviously very much a character, even in his own setting.
