Pippa Calf-hair Jacket

If I ignore the cost of the jacket for a moment (although at that price, how can anyone), I still don't "know" about the jacket. There is something about it that doesn't seem appealing to me, but I just can't figure it out. It is certainly not the shape, (as J.Crew puts it "a straight, cropped body with shorter, banded sleeves shaped with tucks for volume"), that I don't like.
I think that my dislike of the jacket might have something to do with the calf-hair as the material base. I just don't think it would be very comfortable to move around in and wear. (Even though I have no problems in the past purchasing calf-hair items from J.Crew, such as the Spotted Cat flats and purse that I already own. But maybe because those were accessories, I viewed them differently.)
What do you think about this jacket? Would you buy it? Do you like the fact that it is calf-hair? Do you not care because the price is so outrageously expensive anyways?
