Rated 3 out of 5 by TurkanaGirl Boxy cut in real life
I had been eyeing this blazer for months and grabbed it when it went on sale - I thought it would be great to teach in or for conferences. I ordered 2 different sizes thinking that one would fit for sure! But the cut is more boxy than what you see on the model. It made my [reasonably thin] waist area look chunky, and so it just wasn't very flattering. Even the sale price was a splurge for me - I can't afford alterations on top of that. So, sadly, had to return it. The fabric is wonderful, the workmanship is flawless and the colors (both the deep blue and the navy) vibrant. If you like it and can afford alterations, go for it, but if you're on a budget, think carefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KayceePea Italian Wool Blazer
I love this blazer. The fabric is lovely - heavier than a typical suiting wool but has a very nice drape to it. Not stiff at all. The tailoring and fit are fantastic, and along with the quality, it is the reason I keep buying Signature blazers. I got the True Blue color, which is represented pretty acurately by the pictures. Highly recommended!

As others have said, great fabric, excellent tailored fit, classy for work, but also goes nicely with jeans for a more casual look. Warm for the fall weather. Very good buy at the sale price - if your size is still available, snap it up now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basscatcher Perfect material, fit
Perfect fit, great material. Love this line and I believe I have about 1/2 of this line in my closet! I am so dedicated to LLBean also because of the wonderful return policy...I can rationalize buying anything "if it does not fit, I'll send it back...no biggie..."

Rated 5 out of 5 by PalePixie A beautiful Classic
I really like this blazer. I have the deep black/bright navy plaid print. It looks and feels like a great quality blazer. I'm 5'5, 122 pounds with 32B chest and I bought a size 4. It fits beautifully, including the sleeve length. I love the way it looks with jeans. I get compliments on it every time I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lunzel great silhouette
I had been lusting after this jacket for a few months, when it showed up on sale, I had to buy it. I have a curvy figure and am always looking for jackets that accentuate and tailor my shape. This jacket looked perfect - even my husband - tough crowd - loved it. Great fabric, great color particularly for a creative with a preppy edge, this jacket is spot on for style. I anticipate wearing it for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lawyer27 Perfect jacket
I love this blazer. I purchased the size 2, and it is spot on with the fit. Not too tight in shoulders or too boxy in the middle...just a great, relaxed jacket. I had to get sleeves shortened, and it was pretty pricey ($150)...but this jacket is worth it. I will be purchasing the two new colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunnysideoftheriver Timeless!
The herringbone blazer is impeccably made and true to size, although I did need to shorten the sleeves slightly (5'7", 140 lbs.). I do wish it was a bit more cinched in the waist area, but a good tailor could easily remedy that issue. I strongly dislike paying full price for anything, but purchased the blazer with the matching skirt and pants as the pieces are beautiful, timeless, and such high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALittleBeanie Superior Quality
The Italian Wool Blazer (black) is gorgeous. Excellent quality. Worth every penny. Fits true to size. No need to size up or down. The fabric can be paired with just about anything - from jeans to suit separates. Very versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Model Great blazer
The blazer as well as most Signature items have beautiful fabric, great styling and are well made. The drawback to llbean is that the items are shipped in flimsy plastic bags. When I receive the items, the bags are torn open, the items are terribly wrinkled and sometimes the items are damaged. More quality needs to be placed on delivery and packaging!
