If anyone could watch this and give me some suggestions on something similar to this suit in the short film. The silver one the main actor is wearing, it looks like a form of leather or faux leather racing jacket or motorcycle jacket but I have been on amazon looking forever and can't find anything similar and the few I did find were a mesh material not real or (preferably faux) leather.

It is a leather suit slightly augmented and sprayed or rubbed silver. Not sure how easy it would be to find a faux leather one that will look that good, as the padding is typical of proper leather jackets. This kind of thing helps if you (of someone you know) can use a sewing machine, but you can also do a good job with leather glues or cements. It would be cheaper to find a faux leather jacket, buy some black vinyl material and glue shapes, ribbing et al to the jacket...then spray it. A standard biker jacket can be augmented with relative ease. Mesh jacket would still spray just as well with the right paint but would be a different look.
