Men's Winter Rib Blazer
The perfect solution!
I bought this jacket for my husband for Christmas. He won't wear sweaters, and he doesn't like a blazer unless he is going to a wedding or an interview. Two strikes, huh? Well, maybe not. He has wanted to look a bit more stylish, and I have been trying to steer him away from costume-ish band-collar shirts and Cuban heels for years now. He has also been feeling the cold more lately. So I saw this jacket as an opportunity! It serves the purpose of a sweater, with a more tailored look that he can wear at work, to church, or out to dinner. The quality is excellent... blazer detailing, down to the vents and the button cuffs, but in a nice heavy knit. It's lined, too. And it looks great on him (I told him it makes him look thinner... it really does, but ladies, men like to hear that they look thinner, just like we do!). And the cherry on the parfait? I got it on sale, which made this jacket a GREAT value! All in all, a great purchase. LE, I would request one change, though: a couple more colors!

Color is off
Bought this for my grandson. He wears it with jeans.The fabric does look like a sweater but it lacks the color depth shown in the picture. It is not as crisp looking as in the picture either so that is a disappointment. But for a casual jacket it works just fine. Taking it off, throwing it down, letting it rumple a little does not faze the way it looks; just like a sweater you can put it back on and go. Over all, I give it a thumbs up.

A sweater that's not a sweater
I am pleased with this blazer. It's perfect for keeping warm in a cold Canadian office. Although the lapels give the impression of a blazer, the plush comfort of the fabric feels like a sweater. This is a unique garment.

Product is just what the description entails.
A high quality product. Fits great. Seems the more I wear it, the better I like it!

Nice casual winter blazer; unfortunately, unavailable in fitted sizes
The material is casual and perfect for cool weather. I was impressed with the quality of the fabric and tailoring. Unfortunately, none of the sizes fit me perfectly. Since this blazer isn't available in specific chest sizes, the medium is too small and the large is too big. A medium is for chest sizes 38-40. A large fits chest sizes 42-44. I happen to be a 42R, but the large is too loose since it must accommodate someone with a 44 chest. I suspect this detail affected their models; notice how one of them is holding his blazer closed yet the two halves barely touch. I really want to own one of these blazer in my size!
