It's nordstroms so I'd just order it and see if it works for you/if it's worth the $1k. Like NWI said that Schott x UO is a good alternative

Just got this RLPL bomber in. The best suede I've ever put my hands on. Suede ribbing at the hem and the sleeve and no lining except the sleeves. The leather backing is super soft as well. Incredible. Almost didn't get it too.

That's really nice. How is the fit? Boxy or close fitting. I have a few RLPL suedes and leathers and the quality is incredible.

I bought an RLPL leather jacket a few years ago. Have since sold it cause it didn't get enough wear, but as far as those lux-CM leathers go, it was one of the best I've seen in terms of quality.

I'd say fit-wise it's not boxy but not fashion slim. Doesn't fit like the repro company stuff or fashion bombers. The ideal fit if you ask me. Something you could wear with denim and a t shirt or with a button down & trousers and it wouldn't look out of place with either

Offhand I'd say it's worth looking at Aero, although their jackets tend to have more of a vintage / repro feel and generally use heavier materials that would require some break-in: http://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/products.php?cat=classicleather&sub=amj

Some of the Schott collaborations, like the ones at Urban Outfitters, come in at a lower price tag and should have a relatively slim and fashion-forward fit: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/category.jsp?id=BRANDS&brand=schott&country=us#/

I'd also take a look at some of the Golden Bear collabs with Club Monaco: http://www.clubmonaco.com/search/index.jsp?keywords=golden+bear

I think @dieworkwear mentioned a few other companies Golden Bear collaborates with (possibly Unionmade also?), and their collaborations generally fit better than their mainline stuff.

Forum affiliates Falcon Garments and Luxire also have MTM / MTO offerings that will come in around or under $1k if you want a slim fashion jacket.

Basically there's a lot of options out there, and it depends on what you want out of your jacket. I'd probably look at a more leather-focused maker than Baldwin, which I think of as a denim-focused brand.

I looked at Schott's online, just concerned that it might be bulky since it's calf leather. But, looks like there are a lot more options out there besides schott.

Lots of cool stuff going on with these jackets, is this the one that zips totally apart? I think this one is wearable enough, but the one with the shoulder zips seems like a bit much imo. I also really like the elbow zips, but the gloved/double cuffs aren't my thing.
