I bought this in Australia recently, when I was really wanting a black leather jacket instead. But it has been great. It goes with pretty much everything: jeans, skirts and isn't as heavy, so is alright to take out or wear on warmish days. There is also a beige coloured one that could look really good, but probably wouldn't have gone with as much.
I purchased this in fall 2008 for $300 and it has been a great investment piece. The fit is perfect, it's warm and goes with everything and is still in perfect condition. Will definately be wearing it again this winter.
