I don't think this particular jacket shown on the above mentioned link was actually made of Shinki horsehide. It should have had an inside label of "Shinki Hikaku" from the inside of the jacket, stitched right to jacket's lining (as Himel Bros usually do in case with Shinki HH) but this particular jacket doesn't have such label on it. It looks to be made of horsehide but not of Shinki HH. Still is a nice jacket though.
P.S. Without the sale price any ad looks useless.

Not all Shinki jackets have such a label on it. I’ve asked David himself and he confirmed that he had started using this label only from last year in 2018. So if the jacket is earlier than that, there’s a chance that it doesn’t have such a label.

Well, if David Himel said that - Ok. But I also know that Himel use not only Shinki in nowadays versions. That may be the clue too. Anyway, seems it depends at least when this particular jacket was made then. If in 2017 or before - well, it might possibly be Shinki, esp. if David said that, but if it was made since 2018 - who knows. Himel use not only Shinki nowadays. We'd better should ask David Himel about this particular jacket to know for sure what kind of horsehide it was made of. At least David knows that for sure.

Looks great. This Heron had no Shinki label, but I have no doubt it is shinki when compared to other Shinki jackets I own. Until I read this I did not know he had a shinki label.
