Rated 3 out of 5 by carolannie Dry clean !!
I did not realize it was dry clean only, it went back. Not a bad fit but the cost of the dry cleaning makes it not a worthwhile "bargain". Would much prefer a traditional seersucker for summer that is cooler and washable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ashevillian Nice pinstripe blazer
The is an interesting textured pinstripe, not quite seersucker as its more thick. Sleeves are lined as is the back collar area where one might sweat during the summer.
I like the nicely tailored inside pocket and the surprise pink piping on the underside of the collar, great if your a collar "popper."
What I didn't care for was on each sleeve one button is sewn on in pink thread. Maybe LLB thinks this is cute and quirky, I think it looks unprofessional and like I fixed the buttons myself with some hotel mending kit. Now I really do have to fix them myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DogWalkerInWAState Beautifully tailored.
This blazer is beautifully tailored. The sleeves are lined. The upper back is lined with a split lining, which gives better drape than an unlined blazer with ease of movement. All the interior seams are covered with seam binding.
The blazer is fitted and slimming. It fits tighter than many other blazers in the same size, so don't get it if you are even slightly larger than the measurements. The sleeves were 2" too long for me. I am 5'4" tall. I didn't take off stars because it would fit a taller woman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveArt Great deal for a beautiful stylish blazer
I am between size 2-4 but generally buy size 4 or S in LLBean due to my broad shoulders. I bought S in this but I think I could have taken XS especially because I am flat chested and not curvy, there was too much room in the body. As this is a beautiful jacket , I was hesitant to return , but unfortunately since XS is gone I had to. I tried a button down underneath instead of a T and see if it solve the issue, but because the material is soft side, a button down made it appear bumpy and baggy. Otherwise, great deal for such a well executed stylish blazer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by niffup Good idea poorly executed
I was sorry to return this blazer since as pictured it was perfect for my needs. However, construction was binding to movement in the shoulders and arms over a T shirt. I am 5'5 1/2 " tall and weigh 127 lb. A med. is usually just right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nobtshappy3 just what I was looking for
The only thing I don't like about it is that the lapels don't lie flat. The dry cleaners even tried.
