If they're like the other (recent, made in USA) BBBF jackets I have, they're quite nicely made (by Southwick, if I remember right), but the styling is not to everyone's taste. They're short, with narrow lapels, a high button stance, and closed quarters. Natural (but not without structure) shoulders. If you're comfortable with that, $400 is a good deal, yes, and not common to find in basic colors and patterns. Here's a pic of me in BBBF jacket. Usually a size 42R, 5'10", this is BB3.
