Rated 4 out of 5 by DVD4 Great fit, however...
The fabric, styling, price and fit were a hit. However, the length is too long if you're under 6ft. I'm 5'10" and it cuts me in half. I only wish J-Crew would modernize the length on all there jackets, 1" can make a difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gilipollas Nice summer jacket
Found this on sale at my local JCrew store and thought 'why not.' It's a nice jacket, the fabric really is stellar, it's got a good weight to it while still feeling cool and durable. I wear a 36r in the ludlow, and the XS fits about like that, maybe a very small amount more snug, but the lack of a lining and structure makes up for it.
The other reviewer is right, if you wear a normal size for your height, it will probably be a little long. I'm 5'10 as well, and the XS is a great length, just a tad shorter and more modern than a structured sportcoat or suit jacket, but I do have narrow shoulders for my height. I tried on the S in store, and it was pretty large.
Overall, very pleased, color, fit, fabric are all really nice, though it tends to wrinkle quite a bit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josh Nice jacket, runs large
Maybe its because of the lack of padding, but the size that should have fit me based on the size guide was way too baggy. But I exchanged it for a size down and that one fits really well. Its also a lot more relaxed and wrinkled than the photo would suggest. But otherwise its a nice jacket and I plan on wearing it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluenoser Excellent Jacket
This jacket is terrific for the summer. Solid fit, nice colour, and soft shoulders that will lend itself to a relaxed look. I found the jacket to run a little large, but personally I like a snug fit for my jackets. Otherwise, I highly recommend this item. Very pleased customer (once again).
