The fabric and drape are beautiful, as you'd expect from HF. I'm 6'4" with a fairly athletic build, and this blazer fit perfectly. Only the sleeves had to be altered (lengthened). STp's price was excellent and delivery was fast. I like their packaging for suits and sport coats. I almost could have worn the blazer out of the box. Get their app and save on shipping.

I ordered a black sport coat. Unlike most reviews, I received metal buttons and side vents. However, the Q&A indicates the fit is a "Lindsey" model. In fact what was shipped was a "Milburn" model. Milburn is one of their trimmest fits and the sleeves are almost skin tight on me. Another issue is the wool pattern. The pictures indicate a classic worsted wool look. The jacket I received has a very defined diamond or X pattern which is far more modern than the pictures illustrate. STP agreed to refund all shipping charges and offered a full refund.

Ordered a 46R.Black.
Did not like the non-smooth finish.
Was too small for stated size.
Have a Navy Hickey Freeman blazer from Sierra that is an appropriate 46R size.
Also,Navy one has a smooth finish.
Wish the black fit properly and had a smooth finish like the Navy.
Sierra did process the return and credit quickly.
Am very appreciative of that!
Get the Navy one! It a great blazer.

I am not an expert on suit coat construction, but this one hangs beautifully on me. All I needed was to have the sleeves shortened. The buttons are indeed plastic, but they appear of high quality with a silvery appearance. It does not look like a factory second at all, pockets lined properly, no defects in the cloth or in the sewing. I looked at some expensive blazers at Nordstrom and Neiman-Marcus (in truth trying to try on a Hickey-Freeman) and none of them (E Zegna, Canali) had brass buttons. One of the salesmen said they didn't have brass buttons anymore. I have several Hickey-Freeman suits/sport jackets and they all feel of quality; this one is no exception. This blazer is light weight, good for 3 seasons in the South. Quality blazers don't go on sale often, so grab this one while you can.

I own a blue blazer in this model bought >1 year ago from STP. It came with beautiful antiqued brass buttons. Just bought a black model, and it has cheap looking plastic buttons. I replace blazer buttons with gold, school insignia ones, so the plastic doesn't matter, ultimately, but the initial look is chintzy, not one I'd aspire to show in an upscale garment. It also makes the garment look like the top half of a black suit, mismatched with odd trousers.
