New Favorite "go-to" Blazer
Reviewed by [...] John from Colorado on Monday, March 23, 2015
I wear a jacket to work just about every day and try to keep a decent seasonal rotation. Thanks to STP I can do so without going broke. I've tried a lot of options, including MTM, and this HF is my new favorite (along with a navy Jack Victor hopsack also purchases at STP). All my other jackets need significant tailoring, including supressing the waiste and adjusting the sleeves. At 5'11, 185 with a true 34 waist, the 42R fit me perfectly and even the sleeve length is right. That's never happened before. I received the navy Milburn model with side vents and metal buttons. The buttons are nice and not at all shiny, just as pictured. There are only 3 buttons on each sleeve, but I think it looks fine and have no intention of replacing the buttons (though I would if they were navy plastic). The material and drape are great. The smooth worsted wool is on the thin side, which is good because I intend to wear this in the warmer months. I have no indication this jacket is a second and all seams look good. I have been watching this jacket and waited almost a year to purchase. I should have bought it right away. After trying this on and inspecting it, I ordered another in deep navy. Good thing, because they showed out of stock the next day.
