Its okay, i usually prefer black jackets, but the style is nice. Depending on the price that is.

I always ask myself, am I'm confident enough that the piece will fit into my style goals to make it worth buying? Unless I can give myself a clear 'Yes' then I don't purchase it. Hence, I'm going to recommend against it since you had to ask here. But while were on the topic of the jacket I've seen very few button leather jackets I would want to wear.

Why spend $500 for a fashion leather jacket, when you can get a G&B for less, which is very well made - or an Aero, which is incredibly well made, for a few hundred more? Gibson-Barnes: http://www.gibson-barnes.com/leather.html Aero Leather (IMHO the world's best leather jacket maker): http://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/w...bcats&catid=36 Or Lost Worlds: http://www.lostworldsinc.com/index.htm Or Schott: http://www.schottnyc.com/index.cfm Or Vanson's: http://vansonleathers.com/main_page/.../mens/mens.htm Also, check out the Fedora Lounge, before buying, everything you need to know about leather jackets is there: http://www.thefedoralounge.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4

not a fan either, esp if one out of only 2-3 leather jackets. Among say 10 other jackets for variety - maybe
