Rated 3 out of 5 by goose Yes, if it fits
This is one of the NICEST made linen blazers you will find. So much attention to detail, it could almost be hand made. There is mesh lining in the upper back over to arm holes in the front panels of light cotton with flocking on the linen.There are very subtle shoulder pads.The pockets have real buttons that button into a hidden cotton flap,no velcro, thankfully. Not sure why it is called wrinkle resistant, wearing it around the house, sitting a couple times, the tail/back got wrinkled.
At 6'2", 172 lbs, the 42 Regular (no talls offered) fit well enough in length of body and sleeves, but was baggy. I put it on and was reminded of a burlap bag. I considered having it tailored to make it a trimmer fit, but it would probably cost more than the price of the blazer, on sale at least.

The order was filled with the usual efficiency and the quality is beyond reproach.
After reading the reviews I ordered one size smaller than I usually wear and it was a perfect fit. I'm 5-9 and a fairly normal build. I wear 42" LL Bean shirt. The blazer is 40".
Looking forward to summer.

I MUST POINT OUT THAT I DIDN'T EXPECT SUCH GOOD FIT AND EXCELLENT LOOK OF THIS BLAZER! I LIKED IT FROM THE FIRST TIME I WORE IT. ALSO LIKED THE COTTON QUALITY ONE, I ALSO BOUGHT.

Elbow patches??? Seriously? Starsky and Hutch anyone? Too formal to be a true adventure sac jacket - has shoulder pads and body - yet, too casual with the twin chest button pockets. I didn't notice the elbow patches. The designer must have watched Jack Tripper growing up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dclerico Too Large
I liked this jacket in the catalog and despite reading previous reviews that it was sized incorrectly, I hoped for the best since I am between a 38 and 40. The reviewers were correct. It's nicely made but much too large for its sizing. The jacket I received was comparable to at least a 42 if not a 44 men's jacket. Too bad it doesn't come in 36.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SignatureBuyer Runs very large
Loved the jacket, styling, fabric, weight, pockets that can hold everything. Problem was that the jacket runs very large. I am a 38 and the 38 was huge on me. Had to return it as no 36 size

Rated 2 out of 5 by HAVASUWOLF BAD BLAZER
This item was returned to Bean because it simply was not up to their standards. The sleeves were too long by 4 inches and were so large at the opening, I could have mistaken them for pants legs. The jacket appeared to have been put together from leftover pieces. The material didn't match color throughout the coat. Not Bean's best effort.

How many times in life do you get exactly what you want? For me this was one of those times. Fit, look, quality of material....just great!
a good linen jacket without that hot-making lining. it can be worn on a hot day without frying you. Thanks, LL, this is a great one!
