Rated 5 out of 5 by Glenn Great all-around sportcoat
I've had this jacket for about a month now, and I'm totally comfortable giving it my full recommendation. I've already worn it on several occasions, and it looks great every time.
Although definitely a more casual jacket, the corduroy Ludlow can actually be dressed up fairly well, too. Obviously we're not talking about anything formal here, but with a crisp shirt, tie, and trousers in the right colors, this thing can look more sharp than you'd expect. I've worn it to work twice, and stood out both times- in a good way.
The fit is perfect. I always need to take my jackets to my tailor, but that wasn't necessary this time. It hugs my torso comfortably, the armholes are high, and the sleeves fall to the proper length- it fits wonderfully.
If you're looking for something a bit different from the standard fall/winter wools and tweeds, you won't be disappointed with this corduroy Ludlow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by John Nice jacket but is a little small
I usually wear 38S so I ordered a size small.
The reviews mentioned that this jacket was smaller than usual ludlow jackets and I agree.
The length of the jacket itself and the arms were fine.
But the chest width of the jacket is smaller than what you'd expect.
Also the arm holes were a little tight too.
So unless you're a bit skinny there's a high chance that this jacket will not fit your body.
The jacket's quality itself is great especially for the sale price and I would recommend it if you have a skinny posture.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mark "Hazelnut" color does not match website
I ordered a sport coat in "hazelnut" and received it today. The color shown on the website is a medium brown with a warm tone. The coat I received is dark brown without the warm tone shown on the website. This mismatch is an absolute deal killer for me. Beyond the color mismatch, the cloth feels pretty stiff and not as soft as I would expect from a high quality corduroy. Returning the item.

I'll make it work, but a small is tight and the medium was huge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MontyNJ Way too small!
I'm usually a perfect medium for J. Crew clothing, including slim cut items. I ordered this jacket in a medium. It looked beautiful... until i put it on. I could barely move when I put on the jacket. So I decided to order it in a large. No luck, the large just looked poorly cut and boxy.
I returned both the medium and the large.
To be honest, if I didn't mind being unable to move at all, the medium had a nice cut to it and I loved the corduroy and the color. Oh well.
