Question:

Does a leather jacket have to be a product from a kosher animal that was slaughtered in a halachically correct manner?

Answer:

Only food stuff devoured orally has to be kosher. Eating non kosher food has a detrimental effect on the Jewish soul. One is allowed to derive benefit from non kosher animal derivatives e.g leather shoes, jacket, belt, brief case etc. made from non kosher animals.
