The leather is not very good.
Hermes is probably the right answer, short of any little-known artisanal maker. I've seen nice coats from Marc Jacobs, Kiton, Dior Homme, and some others, but the quality is not at the level of Hermes. Just like with suits, though, fit is still the most important, and sacrificing a bit of quality for a better looking jacket is a good idea in my book.
