JMS Fitted Gabardine Blazer
It was comfortable, true to size. I really like it
I wasn't sure I was going to like it because the material was so lightweight but that turned out to be the reason I liked it. It's comfortable and fits beautifully!

Decent, Cheap & Versatile
There is no comparison between this blazer and something like my beautiful, Anne Klein jacket. However, if you are a large woman, you know exactly how hard it is to find comfortable, nicer work clothes that aren't too bulky or hot. Had to have the jacket tailored since I don't have a big chest which is how virtually all women's-sized clothes are cut. But for the money -- including tailoring expense -- this jacket is a bargain. Unlined, so cool enough for summer. Paired a blue one with the matching trousers -- also tailored to bring down the volume of fabric in the legs. My upper arms are kind of large so the upper arms on the jacket are just a bit snug at armpit height. Wish, overall, the chest was cut much smaller, the shoulders a bit wider and the upper arms a bit more generous. Doubtul it will last long or through too many cleaning cycles -- my experience with JMS fabrics -- but since it was cheap and I'm desperate for summer-weight, work clothes, it will do.

I love it!
This blazer is perfect for me. I was looking for something light for the summer and I didn't really want the full polyester fabric. I was pleasantly surprised... the blazer fits well, not long and frumpy, but you get the coverage you need. The fabric is soft and looks good with a slight sheen. I loved it so much I purchased 4 out of the 6 colors available. I don't mind that it's not lined, in fact, I prefer it that way in the summer. I'm very happy with my purchase. I wish JMS had the matching 27" long pencil skirts too!

Best part: Made in America!
Will recommend with a small reservation; sleeves are a bit roomy and had to be altered to fit properly. Still, well made and comfortable.
