Great for the Deep South
I love wearing sports jackets, but I live in southern Louisiana, where it's extremely hot and humid. This jacket is the perfect, cool answer to the problem! For some, this jacket will run large; it's perfect for me because I have wide shoulders.
6' 175 athletic build. Read reviews and went with a 40R, usually wear 42L. Fit was fine in shoulders/chest; too short in sleeves; and big through the body. Really liked the material and wanted this to work, but would have had to have significant alteration work done. Wish you had a ""fitted"" or ""slim"" option for sport coats.
Great lightweight jacket
After reading some of the reviews of this jacket , I was afraid the sleeves would be too long, but for me it fits just fine. Its a great looking light weight jacket perfect for warm Southern California days.

Nice Casual Sport coat
This is a very nice summer sport coat for our area of the country. To be honest, I haven't had a chance to wear it yet (other than trying it on when I first got it) since we've had a very wet and cold spring. I look forward to warmer weather so I can give it the wear it deserves!
I wear 39 off-the-rack, and the size 38 fit like it was made for me. Itâ€™s beautiful and well made. Iâ€™d like to have another in slate blue, please.
This was a great buy and surprise. Linen? You bet.
I like this summer jacket. Just got today and was apprehensive about not getting the correct sleeve length with a 38R I ordered. I am 6'2" 155" and usually wear a 40L and for my 34" sleeves and chest size but this fit great throughout, even with a long sleeve shirt underneath.
44l fit like a glove. Workmanship is impeccable. Can't wait to try it out in St. Remy next September...and maybe in Tucson this May.
