Indiana Jones' leather jacket in an English field -- and no snakes!It's not quite like finding the grail but in their quest for the perfect jacket for Indiana Jones, props procurers for Hollywood director Steven Spielberg tracked down leather coat maker Peter Botwright to a small barn in the English countryside.Based in the county of Kent, southeast England, Botwright's Wested Leather made the jacket Ford wore in Spielberg's 1981 film "Raiders of the Lost Ark" the first in the franchise.His list of credits is diverse, including making the German army uniforms for the submarine disaster thriller "Das Boot", elf costumes for a Santa Claus movie, outfits for super-spy James Bond and clothes for the "Mission: Impossible" films.With more than 30 years of movie work under his belt, Botwright has recently made costumes for the Marvel comic Thor films and the second series of the television fantasy biopic "Da Vinci's Demons".
