nice fit and good value
Wonderful versatile jacket, can be worn to work as well as for casual wear
A Versatile Piece
Just returned from New York, Istanbul, and Amman, Jordon. Wore the jacket almost continuously. I'm a size 41-42, 6'. Got the medium size (in black), since customer comments said jacket ran large. Like the style - works as field and dinner jacket. With my fleece vest or sweater the fit was snug, but still comfortable. Jacket sheds nicely in light rain. Only problem: front buttons unraveled - had to resew all of them. Damp cloth wiped off any dirt or dust. Got it on sale. I'm very satisfied.
The only inaccurate description of this jacket is to label it ""double duty."" It's utilitarian nature makes so ""grab-able"" for any situation from after work social to weekend warrior. And the best part, your taste won't be labeled either.

Very Nice Blazer
I just received my Double Duty Blazer and as always I'm very happy with my purchase. As others have pointed out the arms are a tad to long and will need to be adjusted. This Blazer is well worth the extra money for tailoring. I'm also going to order it in black. At the sale price it's a steal. I almost feel guilty for paying so little.
Would buy it again
I've had this coat for 18 months. I'd wear this almost every day if the weather called for it. It runs big, and I should have ordered a Med instead of Lg. (I'm a 40-41) but w/ the Lg I can layer it nicely for colder weather. My only complaint is the thread used to attach the buttons is very light and I've had to re-attach two buttons. Washes well, drys nicely and cleans up well. I'd buy again when mine is too worn to wear someplace I care what I look like.
