Rated 5 out of 5 by Peach A Great Choice
My old black velvet school-boy blazer has seen better days, so I decided to replace it. It was a hard choice because the colors were so great this year, but in the end I went with black. After reading other reviews, I bought a size larger than I normally do (I take a 4 Regular in school-boy blazer) and bought a 6 Tall. I am so glad I did. While I had to have the sleeves shortened, the additional length of the jacket gives it a more formal quality, which I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Candy LOVE this jacket!
In addition to an excellent overall look, the jacket's sleeves are the perfect length. (I'm 5' 11.75") Really appreciate the inside breast pocket - a superb feature.

This blazer fits true to size--it is not too fitted just a nice close fit. I bought a Tall 14 and the sleeves are the right length as is the body length. The cotton velvet is a good quality which can be difficult to get in a velvet item. The blazer style makes for a slightly different casual look with pants or jeans. At the same time it can be worn for an evening look with really slim pants or even with slightly more formal attire.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Clothesracehorse Buttons Placed Too High; Chest Too Big
I typically like the fit of the schoolboy blazers, and I have purchased several over the years. However, the velvet this year missed the mark. I wear an 8Tall in J.Crew blazers because I stand 5'8.25" tall and have long arms and legs and a short torso. I have a nipped in hourglass waist that is almost 10" smaller than my hips. When I buttoned this jacket the bust was too large (I require a 36" chest) and the top button was placed too high so that when I buttoned it, it didn't button at the natural curve of my waist. This is usually not the case with J.Crew blazers. I returned both the mustard yellow and the emerald green blazers because of the bunching at the chest and the button placement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SouthFLgal Nice velvet blazer
I have several J crew blazers in Tall 4 and they all fit great. This one is nice but doesn't seem to be as nice as the others I have. The sleeves are a tiny bit shorter than my other school boy blazers and the length doesn't seem as long either. Still, a beautiful jacket with great style and lovely blue color!
