What's the best place to find a nice, somewhat inexpensive men's leather jacket?

The Illinois winter is upon us. I need a new leather jacket. Lost my old one. (Don't ask.) I can't be spending any more than like 200 to 400 dollars on this thing. But that's a pretty fair deal, I think, because a leather jacket can last for years and years and there's a chance that if I really like it I'll hang on to it for life.

I don't know a damn thing about clothing stores or what's "in" and fashionable or any of that shit. I just need a leather jacket. Black. Maybe with one of those removable hoods. Maybe some cool pockets, too. I wouldn't know the first place to look, though.

Help me out. This is a huge life decision.

Next time you get in a drunken brawl (i.e. this Friday night), just pick a fight with someone who has one and take it.

Why don't you ask JanJo if you can borrow hers?

If the question is serious, I've had really good luck at Marshall's. I think they are nationwide. The selection varies from store to store, but it's worth it to check around.
