I know it's from the brand whose name we never mention, but I quite like the look of this one:

Any thoughts yea or nay?
You're correct. It's a name that never shall be uttered  ;)

I do like the style of these types of jackets, not sure if I could pull it off at my age...

I was thinking the same thing Mike, but it's one of their few pieces that caught my eye recently. I'm quite partial to a little bit of corduroy every now and again, and it's not mad stupid money either, with very limited branding just on the button edges so doesn't shout the name that we never mention too much  ;)

Right, I like the corduroy. They usually sell out of these quick too... noticed they've  had  price drop over the last year or so, also....

I have a similar styled jacket that I bought off a fellow member of this very forum, albeit not in cord, but I have to admit I find it really hard to wear. Basically, I feel like a bit of a dick when I put it on. If you can pull it off, go for it, but it takes confidence!

A few years back, I had a similar black jacket by Calvin Klein (who would have guessed) that I wore. As long as you don't go "overboard" with what you're pairing it with, I like the look.

That looks like something Roger Moore would wear open necked, around the time of Moonraker.

You can decide for yourself whether or not to take that as a compliment!

Nah, If it were from that period, the collar would be 3X the length... I like that piece, but it's pricey for fake suede.

That made me laugh out loud! Guess you're not a fan then Rod. To be honest when I saw it I was in two minds but the more I look at it the more it looks ok, but with a new Levis Bedford jacket on it's way, it's not something I'd buy at the moment.

I think this one has a nice Rubber Soul look, but way to pricey.
