With Herbert Johnson you're really just paying to have the name on the Hat. As mentioned they've changed hands several times over the years. In my personal opinion I would go to another vendor....

The authentic brown lambskin is generally quite smooth and shiny and new looking. Would need to be weathered in unless you want the jacket to look shiny and new.
