Soul's Jacket sleeves

ok so here is the thing I am making a jacket for someone. Its soul from soul eater
Here is a pic:
to me it looks like pleather on the sleeves or leather.
Simple enough to find right?
Its yellow so I can't seem to find any yellow pleather that isn't the shiny stuff that is 2 way stretch and looks like it is for fetishwear :< and leather is out of the question.
So my questions are:
1does anyone know where I could find a good pleather for this or have any alternative fabric suggestions that would still look accurate?
2. does anyone know how to change the color of pleather or make it more matte?

Yay! A thread I can help out with. xD

For my own Soul jacket I just ditched the idea of finding yellow pleather. I ended up using sweatshirt fleece, which worked wonderfully. I've got a photo of it up in my gallery if you want to see how it looks.

I got the sweatshirt fleece from fabric.com, since I couldn't find any Joann stores that sold it in yellow. =/
