Rated 5 out of 5 by Ledzep0522 Really nice summer blazer
This is a fantastic linen blazer. I love the Ludlow cut. Fits great right out of the box. Sleeves are a tiny bit long but I get all my nice blazers tailored anyway.
Nice navy color. Not too dark and perfect for summer with a white linen button. Looks good with jeans or chinos (I own the olive J.Crew chinos).
Solid blazer for price. As usual great piece from J.Crew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCrewShopper Very Nice Unstructured Sportcoat
This unstructured Ludlow sportcoat is a comfortable weight and in a versatile blue color with a faint checkered pattern of threads. Compared to the all-cotton Ludlow sportcoats of last season, it is a bit less extremely fitted at the waist and slightly greater in weight. The construction is solid and it is a coat that can be dressed up or down. Highly recommended.

Great fit off the rack. No alterations needed. I'm about 5'6" on a good day, 140. I have to say that the sleeves are about a quarter to a half inch longer than I like, so I'm cuffin', which is a good summer look anyway. The back is a little tight when I'm flexin'. Just gotta be careful not to stretch too much, else the fabric could tear. It really is light, hence the summerweight. Sort of wish there was a higher linen count, but it's still quite breathable and doesn't wrinkle as much as pure linen. Jacket's unstructured as it should be and straight out of the Somelos mills in Portugal, so +1.
In summary, ya can't beat it for the price, fit and classic Ludlow style. Gotta say, it runs a bit shorter than other Ludlows which is a good thing for men of modest stature.
Holla at JCrew for knocking this one outta the park!

Rated 5 out of 5 by davidm perfect summer blazer
I really love this blazer. It is a great fit, lightweight, and incredibly versatile. It pairs with jeans on the weekend as well as it does with cotton trousers during the week. I could not be happier.

The coat is constructed and cut very well. Love the subtle pattern too. Very versatile so I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of it. Two things I was a bit disappointed about though. It's only a 80 cotton/20 linen blend. Wish it were more like 60/40. Also, mine was delivered in a paper bag, not a box. May be a bit picky about that but it is a sport coat and should be given better care. No garment bag either!!
For reference, I got 40R. I'm 5'11" and 170. Will have to shorten the sleeves about an inch. Wear 34" sleeve dress shirt.
