haha no it's just a decent jacket. Actually yeah maybe it is in French Vanilla territory. Not supermarket brand FV, but something local. Probably NY State cows, not Vermont.
It's nothing revolutionary, but I like the knit collar and cuffs, and the leather is this waxy calf that I think will age well. plus I'm gay for leather tassles so that helps. I mean it retailed for 1k and it's made in the US so it's not some stellar artisinal piece, but it's perfect for me.
