LOVE this blazer. I've bought tons of stuff from STP over the last six months or so, and keep finding out that most of the stuff that comes in just doesn't live up to expectations. The majority is nice enough, but not impressive. This blazer is an exception to both of those occurrences. As soon as I pulled up the plastic cover to take a look at the jacket, I was floored. The color is fantastic, not too dark, and the texture is prominent without being overbearing, and the hand is just wonderful. I've hardly ever seen a finer drape. This instantly became one of my top wardrobe favorites, and I expect it to maintain that position for years to come. Just plain awesome.

Size 38 R: Near perfect fit, the sleeves needed to be shortened just a bit. I'm 5'8" and 150lbs. and this jacket fits very well. Distinguished quality and a light build make this jacket a very universal piece to the wardrobe. It is a 3-season coat and will be great for travel, a night out, and can even be worn with the right jeans. Very nice coat; highly recommend it.
