I like it but it's way overpriced, even at $20 off. I'm looking for a brown cord jacket as well. Last Winter, American Eagle had one that was better looking, IMO, for around $80. I don't think they have one this season though.

instead of paying too much for a "vintage look"
maybe pay too little for actual vintage?

I think it is ok but yeah a bit overpriced. You may also want to look at the original trucker's jacket at the levisstore.com

He was being a wee-bit sarcastic regarding the Sherpa skin. A Sherpa is a person of a Tibetan tribe. I don't think there is any animal by the same name.

The sportcoat just looks boring to me. I can't say percisely why I don't like it, but I don't.
