Rated 4 out of 5 by rvamom Great navy blazer--for cooler weather
This is a substantial blazer and I look forward to wearing it this fall/winter. I had hoped it would be a bit lighter and possible to wear in the spring, but is much too heavy for Virginia spring/summer weather. It is also a little larger than I thought--I am always between a 4 and 6 in J.Crew jackets and blazers--blame it on my waist, I should be a 4, but my tummy makes that size too snug for comfort with many styles (I am 5'4" and 125) The shoulders on this jacket fit more like an 8 (I ordered a 6) but I think I can make this work if I roll up the sleeves. The material, lining, and styling is very nice, and more in-line with the quality I expect from J.Crew than some other recent purchases. If you are between sizes, I would go down a size.
