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.

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.

Gotcha. Sorry for the TJ, but us there an official word for the "savile row" look?

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.
