i think it has too many pockets and i'm not keen on the elbow patches, but with that being said, you really seem to like it. i don't think i'd ever buy a coach jacket, but that one doesn't terrible.. if you have a hard time finding one you like and can afford it, why not? i realize that reasoning can go for everything, but if you've been looking one for awhile and are willing to pay for it, go for it.
my girlfriend bought me a nice lighter-colored leather jacket from gap last christmas. yeah, it's gap, but it was the exact fit and style in a leather jacket that i was looking for. she originally bought me a more expensive one, but it just didn't do it for me, so i know where you're coming from.
last point--i see you're a fairly new member (like myself). if you want something slim and made to measure, you should really look at the temple of jawnz thread. his prices are really good and he gets glowing reviews here and on sufu. the varsity reversible looks great, and i'm sure you could tell him the specs you want and he'd probably give you a good price. plus, you would have designed it to your own specifications.
