Rated 5 out of 5 by DarthIndy Lovely Blazer
It was so wonderful to find a jacket that finally had sleeves that were long enough and was easy to wash. The fit is nice; it doesn't look like a box while still not being so darted as to not allow easy movement. The material is soft so gives and moves with you as well as allowing easy packing in a bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by seababy4 Disappointing Blazer
Sure would have given this blazer a much higher rating; but the sleeves are extremely long; and I do not have short arms. Otherwise it is a very nice, attractive jacket, made with fine material. If L.L. Bean offers this again, with the appropriate length sleeves AND in more colors, I'll sure order another one. I sent mine back due to the sleeves problem and the awfully loud, orange color. I already have navy and the boulder, or stone colored jackets, so hopefully, there will be some other colors available as well.

This was well made, fit to size, and was made from good quality fabric. The sleeves, however, were extra long. Because of my short limbs, I am used to having things altered. I was unable to do this with this garment, because there are three buttons with button holes on each sleeve. I consulted with two experienced seamstresses, and they assured me there was no other way to correct the problem except to cut the sleeves off above the button holes and hem. This would make the sleeves too short for me. For this reason I had to return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TurnerGirl Not a good fit
The sleeves in this jacket are cut way too long for the average woman. I ended up giving it to my daughter who is taller than me, and the sleeves are too long even for her. Everything else about the jacket is very nice. I was really disappointed that the sleeve length could not even be altered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BaiMc03 Sleeves are Lined with Polyester
This is a great jacket, very well made with taped seams. The poppy color is beautiful. However, the sleeves are lined with polyester which is not in the description. Polyester linings are not comfortable in our hot, humid summers. I haven't decided whether to return it since it is it so nice.

I bought size XL Navy. I am 5'8" tall & found sleeves and length long enough. Nice substantial weight to this lined jacket. It arrived wrinkled and after letting it hang in the open a few days, the wrinkles remained - so may need ironing after laundering(?). Attracted lint which may not show on the tan blazer. I would have changed the front buttons. The bottom button (there are three) on each sleeve is sewn on with red thread. I wanted so much to like this jacket but have to return it.

Beautiful blazer but too bright for me. Should have ordered a more subdued color. Lovely details and tailoring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Version1955 Simple, well fitted, comfortable, stylish
For the most part I dress very casual as does everyone in my profession. But sometimes I want to appear more professional and polished for work functions. And of course there are occassions in my personal life where style is just as important as comfort. This jacket is casual but not sloppy. However, I can see how it could get wrinkled so I hang it where it isn't crushed in with the other clothes. I think for the most part it is flattering because it isn't boxy but has slight definition through the darts and shaping front and back. I am 5'3" and 30 lbs overweight so I am shaped boxy as it is and am very aware that well fitted clothes and comfort are hard to find. This jacket accomplishes both. And it has useful pockets so that is a definite bonus.

A very versatile blazer that's a great color and style. I am 5' 9" and buy tall whenever available but the length and the sleeves were ample. I did find it to be a little on the large size. Very much worth the money and hope it comes out in other colors
