    I was just wondering what everyone thought about this jacket:

    I like the general style and the color. But I wanted to know what the quality of Cole Haan Leather jackets was in general and if for the same price, I could go in a better direction.

    You can do much better for the price. Plus, in my experience, the jacket is made in China, and the leather isn't outstanding. Definitely paying for the 'name'.

    BTW - I always see CH leather jackets at TJ Maxx/Marshalls for $250-$300, then for about $149-$199 once markdowns start taking place. I'd check at those stores around September/October as thats when their jacket shipments usually start coming in.

    Agreed. You can definitely find something of better quality and at a better price if you're willing to do a little digging.

    STP has the same coat (in tan rather than mocha) for $295.

    Decent leather blazers are around for as little as $99.
