Couldn't find any...I had actually begun the process to get the leather, but cost effectiveness is definitely a factor. Supple glove leather is available commercially, but not in blue, so that's a custom dye job right there. Plus, if you've worked leather before you know that it isn't sold by the yard, it's sold by the side and half side. We would need about 6 sides per suit which would be anywhere from $100 per side and up...it adds up quickly. I still have neck rings to machine from billet aluminum, along with the arm and leg suit cuffs. Like I've said before, I started this project unwilling to compromise but we would never finish if I didn't.The front pack looks great already. Btw, didn't they have a matt kind of PVC? I don't mean to discard the idea of having it high gloss; makes for an interesting variation for sure. The matt would be, of course, closer to the original look.
