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.
