I thought I'd try some Jack Victor stuff because the price is so good, but I found the jackets to be very stiffly built and the shoulders way over structured. If you like a structured suit, then maybe this is for you, but I prefer a much softer shoulder and something I can move around in without the jacket climbing all over me. And the fabric is a bit on the cheap feeling side with little texture for a hopsack. In the words of my wife, it looks like a kid's first jacket. I have a Jack Victor blazer that I bought locally, and it's much better than these, so they must produce different lines.

The Jack Victor line is known for its exquisite tailoring and construction. This hopsack blazer is no exception. The cut and style, however, come from an earlier fashion period. The cut is rather full; the lapels are a bit wide and the sleeves and body hang a little too long. Modern styling is supposed to be closer fitting and less long. But the Jack Victor quality comes through. So, at the savings Sierra TRading is offering for this classic garment, maybe this is the one for you. I will keep mine.

I ordered the 42 S , my usual size and it was too short and a little tight so I exchanged it for the 42R and it was a perfect fit. Only the sleves need to be shortened a bit. The material is a refined lightweight hopsack with a bit of stretch. Very nice and very comfortable

The quality of the material on this jacket is very good. It is easily better than a Jos A Bank 'Yraveler' quality blazer. It is not a Super 130 or 140 material, so be realistic regarding what you are looking for in a blazer. This one strikes the right tone for me: excellent business quality without shouting. The cut is 'classic' meaning on the full side. I have having it taken in a tad. It is exactly what I was looking for and am pleased with this purchase,
