Well considering there is no brand and it is a vintage leather jacket (which can be had at a vintage store for around $20), I think the price is a bit much.........

Is there no tag of any kind on the inside? Not just a brand tag but even a materials/laundry/"made in" tag? That would help on pricing as well. Even though the jacket looks nice in the pics, without any info, it is hard to know without seeing it in person.

If it were made in Italy of 100% leather, then that price is okay. If it is made in China by some cheaper leather maker, then that price is about what you'd pay at their store (or not so great). That retro-style jacket is REALLY popular now and everybody from Hermes to Wal-mart's "George" line is making one, so just the fit and style are no way to tell.

So, as others have said, a little more info would be great. You may also want to contact your original ebay seller and see if he'll tell you where he got it/what brand it is.

If you CANNOT find out that info, there is generally something you can do that will hint to its quality: What kind of zippers does it use? You can tell usually by looking closely at the pull or on the back. If it uses brands like Riri, IPI, Lampo, etc., then it is a very nice coat. These zippers would cost $15-25 a piece for a jacket, so a cheaper/lower quality jacket probably wouldn't bother using them.
