    I bought this dark navy Oxxford jacket on e-bay. (150$).
    Can anyone tell me some more about it. I'm new here trying to gather some information on Oxxford jackets. Thanks in advance.

    Do a search on Oxxford but it looks like the jacket you purchased is pretty recent. The only question is if it was orphaned from a suit.

    With Oxxford if the buttons have two holes it's a sport coat, four and it's a suit coat.

    All depends on the model. I'm don't know the models well enough to give you a rundown, but it's my understanding that it varies widely.

    They do have a range of models, but overall, it's a conservative American cut. Natural shoulders, often single vent, darted but without major waist suppression.

    So this one would appear to be a suit coat then. It would probably look ok as a odd jacket anyways given the fabric but perhaps others would disagree.

    For this, I'll refer you to some essential reading from Manton:
