I didn't know AoL offered cord jackets. Not bad, but I find it too structured for a cord jacket.

Would love to see pics of the real thing Mike.
It really narks me the way AoL pose their jacket pics with all three buttons fastened, and the hourglass shape makes it look extremely feminine. Hope they aren't like that in real life.

If the jacket is anything like their suit jackets then they will be quite fitted around the waist with a structured shoulder line. They are also quite long in the body too (which I quite like).

Yeah Rod, see Steve's pic above. For some reason it looks like they pin the jackets back on the photos, really exaggerating the waist.
If these jackets are cut from the same patterns as the suits I have from them (I suspect they are) they are waisted, but not overly so...

From my experience, Mike & Steve are right, the jackets are waisted but well proportioned. But length-wise, if I'm not mistaken they offer their suits' jackets in two cuts, regular and short.

Black leather 3 button jacket. Yours for 750.
I'm not sure quite how you would wear this without looking like a gangster but I think you'd look great on the way to provide protection to those restaurants. They don't protect themselves you know.

I've had a jacket just like that since the late nineties but it rarely sees the light of day. In fact I'm struggling to remember when I last wore it. It probably needs tailoring as it will have been bought during the last period when three button jackets were readily available, but the style was very shapeless and boxy.
Hard to know what I would wear it with now, in those days it was probably a long sleeved polo and chinos to fit with a business casual gig I had then.
