Rated 4 out of 5 by Tsing Plain yet stylish
This is an item that exemplifies what J.Crew does best: enhancing a classic, reserved style with small details and rich color. But while I have decided to give this coat a good rating (it seems genuinely well made), I will note that the fit is probably not ideal for those who are skinnier with shorter arms: I feel that the coat is a bit too roomy, particularly in the sleeves, and the cuffs look rather unappealing if you try to roll them up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick Color not quite as vibrant, fit is very "classic"
I'll largely echo the other reviewer in regards to the fit: it's a boxy, classic fit that won't be flattering on slender guys or guys with below average shoulder breadth. I'm about as true a medium as they come, 5'11 and wear a 40R, and this jacket is pushing it for me fit-wise. It does fill out better with a couple layers underneath, say, a t-shirt under a button-up. I couldn't really imagine wearing it directly over a t-shirt or henley.
The color doesn't have quite the same orange-red pop the modeled pictures show. The hue is still there, just a bit more towards a brown.
Overall, I'll keep it. Probably would not if I hadn't caught it 30% off.
