Rated 5 out of 5áby KC50 Unique blazer
I'm someone who doesn't like to wear blazers, so I didn't have high expectations for this product. However, I was surprised by the high quality and comfortable fit. Both the shell and the sleeve lining are 100% cotton. Generally, I am too hot in blazers, even in winter, but this one breathes quite well.
I'm 6' tall, 185 lb, and wear a 17/36 shirt. The 46 tall blazer fits perfectly. I ordered the olive blazer about three years ago, and wear it often. I just ordered a second blazer in khaki, and am looking forward to it. I have recommended this to my sister and brothers, who have teenage sons who attend schools that require blazers. I think these garments can take the punishment.
The care instructions say machine-wash is OK. I dry clean mine anyway. It does pick up marks, as others have remarked, but I find that I can spot clean them fairly easily, as it is 100% cotton.

Rated 1 out of 5áby RpmRob Don't buy this blazer
The arm holes are cut way too small for human use. I don't think a tailor could fix them either. It's a shame, because other that this fatal flaw, the blazer is great.
It would look good on a mannequin or maybe a Ken doll, but for those of us without detachable arms, better pass.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Cowtownman Perfect for Chicago
This blazer is just great for topping off a tee or polo to get one around town in style. The weight is not heavy, but substantial enough to remain crisp and has a very good hand. It is partially lined so summer will not find it hiding in the closet. I think the quality is top notch and it is very comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5áby jesuitlad Seven years and going strong; ordering other color
I bought this item for wear when it's "cold" in Louisiana (50 to 60 degrees). I've worn it five or seven times a year for over seven years.
I wash it, and dry it with normal laundry, and hang it in the closet until it's next use.
I've worn it to the mall, sporting events, walks around the neighborhood, PTA meetings and Christmas Mass..
It is unfrayed, has its original buttons and still fits my portly body perfectly.
I have the khaki one, and am about to order the navy blue version.
It works well with jeans, dress slacks and Dockers.

Rated 4 out of 5áby doc4769 Wears well as a daily uniform
My place of employment requires members of our department to wear a Blue Blazer with appropriate pins and ID card. This is the second LLBean Chino Blazer I've purchased (1st one was over a year ago, and now purchased a 2nd as a backup) for my job, it wears well and looks great every day with minimal care. Perfect for work, great pockets and cut well enough for my size to wear with a light fleece vest in the cold weather.

Rated 4 out of 5áby JiminDayton Nice Jacket
Nice jacket. As a sport coat, I thought it would be a little less "heavier" but will be nice to wear in the fall or spring. Not sure about summer. It does tend to wrinkle, but overall a nice coat.

Rated 2 out of 5áby polarbear43 Chino Blazer Needs Work
The chino blazer has chintzy lining and the inside vest pockets are shallow and cheesy, making this a poor choice for a travel blazer. This would be a 4+ star if it had a better lining material and if the inner pockets were zippered and deeper. As it is, it's a poor value.

Rated 2 out of 5áby tgifriday Weird Cut
After reading the various reviews, I had to buy the jacket to see what my experience would be. I wear a 42 long, 34.5 inch sleeve length, so I ordered the 42 tall. The shoulders were just right, but the sleeves were about an inch too long. The cut of the jacket was such that I could have attached a pillow to my back and then it probably would have fit my torso. I loved the look and fabric, but the cut of the jacket is so strange that I sent it back and will look elswhere for a casual blazer.

First time purchasing a blazer. Had a conference to attend and needed something business casual I could travel with. This fit me great. I have monkey arms, so having the longer sleeves fit me perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Greg4030 Poor fabric
The fabric almost feels like felt and is quite heavy. If you rub against anything, a mark appears on the fabric. Not a big fan of this product.
