Rated 5 out of 5 by Aerosurferlv Elegant and Beautiful
This is the perfect pinstripe suit for the colder months. The stripes are subtle, not overpowering like chalk stripes. The fit is a perfect Ludlow fit. The fabric is pleasing to the touch, luxurious and supple. The color hue is accurate as pictured, it's navy, not getting too far into royal blue. They put a lot of thought into the inner canvassing as well. It has a very elegant, refined look to it. Two of my friends bought this suit as soon as they laid eyes on it! I love it and can't wait to rock it when the temperature drops!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve Well Made, Heavy Fabric
I had been waiting for JCrew to come out with a navy pinstripe suit in a notch lapel, and pre-ordered this one as soon as it was released. The fabric is very heavy - great for the fall and winter, but is definitely not something to wear on a hot summer day. The wool is nicely textured but a bit rough (not smooth like the 120s fabric JCrew uses for its navy sportcoats), and the pinstripe is nicely subtle. Because the fabric is so heavy, the pick stitching on the lapel is difficult to see, which was somewhat disappointing. This is my second ludlow jacket, and this one feels a just bit tighter than last year's model. Altogether, a great suit - well worth the investment though not without some minor flaws.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eric Cheated by the description,dishonest details
I was satisfied when I took my first look at this jacket .
Things come bad when I pulled out the tag to see the fabric is 85 wool and 15 nylon .
But in the description ,there is no saying nylon ,it leads misunderstand ,people would think it's pure wool .
I'm not sure why customers left their reviews without telling this important issue .
J.crew should check twice before they release the info ,otherwise ,the mistake will ruin your reputation .

Rated 5 out of 5 by LudlowFan Perfect pinstripe suit
This suit fits perfectly, as I expect from the Ludlow line. The fabric is heavy and is not actually pure wool, as other reviewers have stated. It does feel a bit more rough to the touch than other wools from the Ludlow line. However, the fabric has a luxurious heft to it, and it's texture makes the pinstripes look more subtle which is great. I don't like pinstripe suits normally because the stripes look too graphic and geometric, but this is a perfect compromise of geometry and understatedness. Furthermore, the stripes are matched beautifully at the seams so the suit looks well-made. I can't wait for Fall and Winter to wear this as I think that this suit may be too warm during the other seasons.
