Rated 4 out of 5 by MRABEL Perfect casual blazer
This blazer is great for casual events or parties. I love the linen texture. It is unconstructed and therefore is fresh for the hot summer days. However, it is still uncomfortable to wear in 90 degree weather. It's not as lightweight and breathable as I thought it would be; which is why I took off 2 stars in regards to quality. It is a very stylish blazer though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill Stylish jacket, but it may need some tailoring
I really like this jacket. The fabric is a beautiful color with really nice texture to it, but it was a bit heavier than I was expecting. I especially like the flapped patch pockets at the waist and the patch pocket on the chest. The buttons are a sort of dark brown plastic that I'm not crazy about, so I may replace them at some point in the future.
The fit was OK but I had to get some tailoring done. For reference I'm 6' tall and around 160 lbs with a 38" chest and longish arms. I usually wear a 38r. The 38r fit me great through the shoulders and chest, perhaps better than any of my other jackets, so no need to size down. It was a bit baggy around the midsection so I had my tailor slim it up. The sleeves were about and inch too long, and the body was long as well. I didn't mind the body but I've never had trouble with sleeves being too long before. That leads me to believe that you could probably order a height size down, so if you usually get a 38r maybe try a 38s.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Clothesandtheman Great look and texture
Great casual jacket for summer in linen but I see it working in early fall and late spring as well as it is on the heavier side for a linen jacket. Very nice medium blue color. The sleeves run a little long, and I have long arms, so I gave them one turn up on the non working cuff buttons. It would have been a plus if the buttons were functioning. I ordered both the 40r and 42r based on some other reviews and kept the 40r. A nice Ludlow fit on the jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WearingSneakers Awesome Casual Blazer
I love the faded Linen style of the jacket, has fantastic blue hues. Definitely a thicker heavier linen but I personally like the heavier substantial garment (still very breathable and light). My only problem was that, while the body (36R) fit great, the sleeves were oddly baggy-ish, and definitely too long. I'm almost 6"1.

I bought this for a summer wedding and it rocked. Size is spot on, fit is slim but not ridiculous for a dude who is a few years north of 40. My wife could not stop telling me how awesome I looked. I am consistently impressed by the value of J Crew clothing. Yes, you could spend more but why would you?
