That's suede leather, very worn and aged. Ultrasuede is a brand name of artificial suede that is a little (not a lot) cheaper than real leather, and easier to work with as it comes on a bolt like regular fabrics. Or you could look through workmans wear company catalogs/ sites and see if there is something suitable you can rough up to look right. That coat looks an awful lot like a Carhartt http://www.carhartt.com/webapp/wcs/s...ll&Nao=0&Nty=1
