    Saw this one at the Nordstrom Sale for $398.00. What do you guys think?

    Naaah.. Looks like the bull peed on his hide before he got slaughtered. I don't like this crushed look of the leather. And the epaulettes. For $400, it looks cheap IMHO.

    Perhaps at a shorter length the jacket would have worked better, but as it is, that wrinkly leather is engulfing the poor poor man. Maybe his pursuers won't find him there?

    And I've never seen epaulets paired well with lapels. It always looks like the designers had a fickle spell. Choose a detail and stick with it, dammit.

    I'd save my money for something else.

    Something like this would work in an area that's not terribly fashion conscious, small to medium sized Midwestern towns or most southern cities. If you're in the NE or Cali, it's a no go.
