Can you help me find a jacket like this?

I really like it, but have no idea where to start looking. Thanks!

Start looking at your nearby Harley dealer.... looks like a bike jacket to me, or at least very similar.. (they aren't all leather)

Response by poster: it looks like a cotton/linen mix, huh?

This one is pretty close. Darker, but basically the same jacket.

Nice. I would guess all cotton. It looks a bit J. Crew-y. Similarish at ~

"Sierra Trading Post" might be worth a browse -- this isn't quite it, but you get the idea -- sharp cotton stuff.

I think it may help to broaden your search to "utility" or "field" jackets as well since sometimes they add biker-ish details like the heavy zipper pocket.

Here is a similar one from Esprit.

Oops, shoulda checked the above link. Here is the image and the jacket is of course on the men's jackets page.

It looks like those pics may be from the current issue, with Jack Johnson on the cover - if you can find a copy in a store, magazines like that usually have fine print captions listing the details of the clothes in the pictures.
