I thought this might be a cool look with jeans?

Same here, though that may well be the least offensive one I've seen.

I don't like leather blazers either. To me, they have a sort of sleazy air. Remember My Cousin Vinny? This one looks good if you're into them, though.

Concur with majority opinion. Leather blazers are generally not my thing, but as far as they go, this one is better than most.

I actually like leather blazers, but am concerned that the lapels are a tad too wide? Nice details, though.

I'm on this wagon.

for what it is, it looks fine. Nothing odd or distracting about it.

The problem with most leather blazers is in their execution. In my opinion, they only look good if they are slim cut, but most are cut rather boxy for the average guy. And they cannot be altered. The particular model in the OP is not bad, but rather underwhelming in an Andrew Marc kind of way.

I really hate the leather blazers, though this one, if it fits all good, it would be okey.
