Very nice material. It's a shame that it was wasted on such a poor design. Like so many off-the-rack blazers, the armscyes (a.k.a. sleeve-holes) are so large and extend so low that the wearer cannot succeed in lifting his elbows or wrists above his ribs without the shoulders launching up into the air and bunching-up horribly. If the designer had simply made the armscyes smaller, this blazer would be wonderful. As it is, I can only recommend it to be worn by mannequins and corpses, since neither risk any movement of the arms which would expose this blazer's fatal flaw.

This is a very nice jacket for formal or if you want to dress "it" up. The jacket seems slightly smaller in the chest and the arms are not cut generously, but somewhat expected in formal wear. I ordered the larger range on my size and will keep the jacket, if I had ordered one size smaller I would have to return it.
