Rated 5 out of 5 by MrMoto Just what I needed!
Was looking for a casual, tan, linen sportcoat for a wedding. I thought about the full khaki/tan suit-look, but I wouldn't get much mileage out of it on a regular basis (business-casual, so suits are pretty rare at the office)..
I noticed J Crew offers a natural-color, completely unconstructed linen blazer. They also have the Ludlow suit jacket, which is constructed and lined, though still somewhat casual looking. Enter this item:
Seems to be the middle-ground: Half-lined, soft shoulder, partial construction. Was just what I was looking for- I was sure glad to snag me some linen for an outdoor summer Florida wedding! I also like that it's more "tan" (called Dusty Dune I think?) than the natural-color blazer which is more wheat/off-white. Sizing seems same as their Ludlow fit. Slim/fitted, but true-to-size. No need to size up or down. Definitely a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockinsince1980 Ludlow Sportcoat in Irish Linen
I am 179 cm and 74 kg. I typically wear a 38S and this is the size I ordered. I wish it were a slim fit, but other than that it is wonderful. I wore this to a social event recently and two women kept touching the sportcoat. I cannot blame them because the linen feels amazing. It is soft and very cool. Perfect for summer. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a linen blazer that is finished in a perfect balance for casual and dressy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jeffreybeaumont Great fit, but color didn't suit me
I really liked the fit of this sports jacket. I'm 5' 7" and 120 lbs, so for a thin person, the 34s gave a tailored look. Unfortunately, the color didn't quite work for my East Asian skin color, making the jacket look much more casual than I had expected; a slightly lighter color would have worked better. Still, I almost kept it for the fit. Should work very well with a white shirt.
