I don't know how much you're trying to get, but you'll be hard pressed to find a place that sells smaller pieces than Tandy.

Ebay is really your only option for that. I wouldn't recommend suede for link though, his gear is made from tooling leather. To do his stuff I'd recommend one or two belt blanks and a shoulder. It'll run you somewhere around $60. Leather is one of the more expensive materials for costuming, but if you do it right it really pays off.
 
Using suede for the bracer pads on each arm
Will be using 5-7 oz tooling leather for the rest i think
The problematic part is the belt over the shoulder and under the arm needs to be curved to sit properly, needing a larger piece of leather with more waste
