I was actually looking for a suit for a wedding. Want a charcoal Anthony RLBL . Any other recommendations ? Budget up to 1k. Really like a 2B and low buttoning point .

The overall design is pretty classic - like a leather Belstaff motorcycle trials jacket such as the Panther:
However, the suede exterior and the quilting make it look a bit different. I'm not sure if I really like the quilted suede effect - it makes it look a bit like a knight's doublet or gambeson or, I suppose, like a suede version of the quilted Barbour jackets that some people like to wear in cooler weather.
It's not a bad jacket, don't tie the belt like that, it looks pretty dumb. I also hazard a guess that it's expensive given the suede. Quilting doesn't look that great either. I've been looking at roadster jackets for a short while now, something that would be good for travelling and a bit warmer. Was originally looking at Belstaff, but they're around $900 and I've gathered from a few articles like Die Workwear's that the prices have been hiked significantly since being bought out. My other option was the traditional Barbour International but the left chest pocket on a 45 degree angle is a large turn off. I did notice the other day that End have some new of the new Barbour International range in, which have a few jackets like the international sans the belt with normal pockets, and a more subtle patch. Will definitely be picking one up next time there is a sale on.
Thanks for the thoughts and links guys, belstaff could be a winner instead, although the ones linked by JM looked pretty good albeit it pricey.
Yeah im with you fox the 45 degree pocket on the barbour throws it off bigtime.
You don't seem to be in a rush, so with that budget wouldn't you go suit shop or the like?
