Concealed English leather (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hide

Here is my best explanation:

'leather' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'concealed english' is the subsidiary indication.

'concealed' becomes 'hid' ('hide' can be a synonym of 'conceal').

'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).

'hid'+'e'='hide'

(Other definitions for hide that I've seen before include "Conceal with leather", "Screen; skin", "Tanned skin of an animal", "Animal skin", "(Place of) conceal(ment)", "Conceal - skin", "Keep out of sight", "Mammal's tough skin", "Secrete, conceal" and "Animal retreat".)
