I'm struggling to figure out what exactly is godzilla-themed about that jacket.

Maybe you need to look really close at the texture, which of course we'll never see because Japanese web pages are allergic to high-resolution pictures.

it’s um godzilla leather?

The weirdest thing is the suggestion that anything about the jacket is reminiscent of Godzilla’s claws. Maybe that is apparent on closer inspection.

It self-replicates and also gives you cancer.

The picture is misleading, as this woman is over 60 feet tall.

The Japanese website is a lot more specific here. The collar buttons have little marks like they've been scraped by claws (so, you are 100% correct that nothing is made to be reminiscent of claws themselves, rather than claw marks). You can kind of see it in one of the close-ups on the product page.
