Rated 4 out of 5 by BaznChicago Warm Weather Comfort and Versatility
The picture online does not do it justice.
When the sport coat arrived I was stunned by how well it looked, the colors are perfect, vibrant in a subtle sort of way so that it is not too overwhelming yet blends and complements every pant and shirt I pair it with. It's fun, hip, and versatile. I can wear it to the office, meetings, or out in the evening. Almost any color of pant pairs well with it, dark jeans, white linen, khaki, or even the "dusty rose" from the catalog. Standard solid shirts really make the jacket "pop".
The material is fantastic. I wore it in 85 degree weather and it was still very comfortable, lightweight but substantial enough to give it a clean shape. This is perhaps the most versatile sport coat I own ( beside the navy blue). A pocket square even looks fantastic with this jacket!
My only recommendation is that the side pockets should have been standard in-set pockets, and not patch pockets. But other than that, Well done J. Crew!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ATXguy Very Nice Jacket, but Order Down a Length
This jacket was a great deal after all of the markdowns, but unfortunately I had to exchange for a different size. I'm 5'10'', 165lbs and a 38R is almost always a perfect fit for me, but this jacket in a 38R was probably a better fit for somebody that was 6' or taller. I've now got a 38S and it fits great.
I definitely recommend this jacket if you're looking for something that works in hot weather (very important here in Texas), and looks good with just about anything. Just make sure that you order down one length

Rated 5 out of 5 by RSon The essential "Go To" Sportcoat
Crafted in their signature Ludlow slim fit and finished with Italian cloth with a luxurious hand, this piece is simply the "go to" sportcoat. Out for a date? wear some unbroken in raw denim, a chambray shirt and this. Business Meeting? Charcoal trousers, tailored oxford shirt, knit tie and this. It is rather cliché to grant a garment the ability to "go with everything" but this coat really does look good with whatever you have on. Slightly structured shoulder so it gives off a casual "not trying to hard" vibe but still feels really refined. Ludlow sizing runs a bit big so if you are looking for the model in the stock photo's contemporary slim fit I would go down a size #Im normally a 38R and got a 36R with it fitting slim as it should#. Definitely recommend. Color is definitely darker in person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris Don't know what everyone is talking about ...
This jacket fits perfect (I'm a 44L, and it is the perfect length and fit) and the quality is excellent. All of the reviews about it not fitting well or poor quality are hogwash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ponch Very nice coat if I can grow 3 inches
I usually can stand anywhere at a concert and see the band so I'd say I'm a decently tall fellow, 6'3"-215. This sportcoat runs TALL. Feels good and looks great but not sure if I want to run around in this cape. Last minute shopping for a wedding was hoping this would do the job.
