Question Nero's coat & more [DMC4]

I'm trying to put toghether a Nero cosplay and i'm kinda struggling with the materials.

The Coat :
What in the world is this thing made of?
Sometimes it looks like leather, sometimes it looks somewhere closer to jeans' fabric...i really have no idea how to bring it to life.

The Sweater-thing :

This one is easier, it definetly looks like leather, but i'd appreciate suggestions.

The Right Arm:
I'm totally in the black here. I have no idea how to make it, but i'd like to look solid, somewhat close to a carapace and i'd also like to put some LED in it because otherwise i would look at the arm every 30 seconds and go "...meh, it could've been glowy...".
(I'm kind of a perfectionist, especially with cosplay)

zero chan doesn't all hot linking, please fix your reference. Could you add some other pictures?

The textures look to me like.... random textures the artist pulled out of a pile and said "meh, that's cool" instead of deciding they wanted it to be leather or denim or suede or... well, anything specific. This is good and bad. It's good because you can do whatever you want. It's bad because it is going to be hard to decide what you want it to be. If this is a manga based character, try skimming through looking for anything that might mention what his coat is.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.

I fixed the link with the best pic i could find.

Moreover, i don't know why i haven't thought about this before, but here's a video compilation of the cinematics from the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTQq5BOqIPI
Obviously i don't expect anyone to watch it all, but know that at around 10 min the video freezes for a minute or so, then starts again.
