Rated 4 out of 5 by designista Fabulous soft dressing, but not for short arms
I ordered this blazer in the navy knowing that the sleeve length with the working buttons was going to be a problem, but the style was exactly what I needed. The sleeves were not finished in a way that they looked good cuffed. The blazer was too good to return. I opted for shortening the sleeves, and the working button holes ended up in strange places. The fabric and fit of the blazer are otherwise perfect. Although the working buttons on the cuff are a great design feature, if the sleeve length doesn't work it is not optimal. If the sleeve length were not a problem for my body type, I would have ordered the other color in this blazer as well.

Which is exactly what I wanted! Fit is spot on in my normal Linea Medium, with enough ease to look a bit slouchy but not messy. I bought the gray as well as the gray pants. This is an extremely comfortable suit to wear, and I will likely wear it on a trans-Atlantic flight to Northern Europe this summer where temps are cooler. I can also wear it as separates to increase the number of "looks" I can get from the same garments, important when I travel. It arrived with the normal amounts of wrinkles, which Louis told us we could expect. I will get it professionally pressed and likely again when I'm abroad. Very happy with this purchase!

This is so classy I don't know where to start! I love the easy, flow of this jacket. Pop the collar, roll the sleeves up and it looks so "uptown". Classy without being stuffy or structured. The only down side is it only comes in two colors. This is one of the few things I would buy in every color offered! We need black, brown and power red!

Jacket is wonderful, see my matching pant review. It is not a structured jacket , which is a lovely, stylish change -- still gorgeous and sophisticated looking, I look very well pulled together and to me a "must have" in my wardrobe. I consider myself very well dressed, and I don't know where I would be able to find a beautiful piece like this in a department store for this price, unless I go to a TJ and then just try to find matching pieces and size. Louis, anyway you can make this suit with some sophisticated stripes? Love you Louis!! Keep it coming.......

I agree with the reviewer that called this soft suiting. I have enough structured suits from working in the corporate world that I hardly wear now. This jacket with the matching pants is soft suiting at it's best and there is nothing like a true navy color. This jacket is so versatile as well so you will never look sloppy the material drapes beautifully love the length of the jacket as well and the slight drape in the back. I ordered my regular size and the fit is perfect.
Rated 1 out of 5 by schwaetzie Very disappointed
This jacket and the trousers are not what I would expect from Linea. In the past, Louis Dell'Olio made beautiful, high end pieces. In my opinion, this did not look like what I had expected.............returned it....and the trousers. The material seemed "cheap" looking and arrived very wrinkled..................

WOW! This is so much cuter in person than in this picture. It has a soft, unstructured drape. The jacket is not lined and the fabric is fluid - a cross between dressy and casual oh so artfully done! As Louis recommended, I sent mine out to be professionally pressed. This made a remarkable difference. I am very happy with this purchase. It runs true-to-size too (using the click-here measurements).

I am 5'6" and weigh 135 lbs. I ordered size S based on the sizing guide and my measurements. This jacket was just too big for me. Although the fabric has a beautiful hand and was made beautifully, it just hangs on me. I sure wish it had fit. I had really wanted it. I might try a smaller size, not sure. I wouldn't recommend this jacket to a friend because I'd be uncertain about the fit.
