Dude! Nice job! Looks like my Langlitz!
The cowhide I used is more or less 1,5 mm, polyester wire.
I didn't built a lining in this jacket. My Arlen Ness has a synthetic lining, in summer when I wear only a t-shirt I have my arms wet, and I don't like so much. With the "raw" part of cowhide in contact with skin the transpiration is better, the fit is good, it's not hard to wear.
I've never seen Buffalo hide, have you a picture? I found in local shop bull skin, maybe 8mm thick, enough for a foundry apron
