This blazer is a wordrobe basic. Purchased jacket in both blue and black. Both displayed excellent fit, finish, material and workmanship. Overall jacket quality is excellent. From my experience, quality exhibited is typical of Jack Victor products. At the STP price, this jacket is a super value.

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
Hopsack is the name of the coat. The material used in the coat is wool.

I disagree with the former answer - hopsack is a specific texture to the wool fabric. The weave is not meant to be smooth as you would find in a gabardine or worsted. It's closer to the texture of the bags that are used to ship raw coffee beans, but much more carefully woven and without any nubbiness or loose strands. It has been a traditional texture in menswear for over a hundred years.

Hopsack is not the name of the blazer. Hopsack is a type of fabric weave that is looser and coarser than your JV suit. The texture gives it the appearance of small squares on the fabric. It is often a bit more breathable as well, potentially making it better-suited to warmer weather.

Hopsack is the weave of the wool fabric. If you have a large screen monitor an zoom in you will see the texture.
