I like it, though I'm a little biased...

Meh... I'm biased against cord in general (go ahead, beat meat with your sartorial derision), but this jacket looks like it's trying too hard, especially:



I don't mind modernity, but personally think this style is better kept to more traditional takes.

I would guess that it falls to normal lapels if you unbutton it, i.e., stage 1:



Unbutton it further, and so on.

Here's the same jacket in wool. Keep in mind that it was designed by a Japanese man and meant for the Japanese market...

You probably won't find it anywhere, it was from the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection from last fall/winter and it did not yet have a decent distribution in North America at the time. Keep an eye out for Woolrich Woolen Mills and Engineered Garments next year though, as I believe the Norfolks will be offered again.

Oh Well, I can always have my tailor re-do it to fit me bespoke

Very nice. Great color and a unique, without being weird, style.
