Rated 4 out of 5 by Jack Decent Summer Sportcoat
I'm 5'9" and 160lbs and the small *just* fits, no real tailoring necessary. The medium size was like wearing a blanket–a couple of inches too long and billowy in the sleeves, and the body of the jacket/chest had a lot of give when buttoned. The fabric is bit more formal and stiff than the model pics on the web site would have you believe. To me, the model at the top looks like he's wearing a super soft sport coat/cardigan hybrid and the actual product is a bit stiffer and more serious than that pic lets on. Overall, seems like a quality piece that's as lightweight and "Ludlow" slim as advertised -- make sure you size down and prepare for some tailoring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RIKI9 A stylish casual option
The feel and weight of the jacket is perfect for the warmer months, though the stock images don't accurately convey the colour. Rather than being a true navy, the jacket is in fact a little lighter with a subtle turquoise check.
As for sizing, a 40R Ludlow fits me pretty much perfectly with no tailoring needed. I opted for a Medium in this jacket and, while it is cut slightly boxier than my other Ludlow jackets, the fit works well for somewhat dressed-up casual outfits. For reference, I am 6'2 with a 42 inch chest and a 32 inch waist.
