    The patch pockets make it work, but then again it looks like the material is fine wool commonly associated with suiting.

    Funny, I've been eying spring/summer blazers for my next purchase and I've been looking for something to specifically have patch pockets just to add a little more casualness in my jacket selection.

    Just fyi, here's what customer service at the J told me about the short-sleeved popover sizing:

    Item A4797
    Points of Measure M L
    Center Back Length 29.75 30.25
    Across Shoulder 18.5 19.5
    Chest Circumference 44.5 47.5

    No info on sleeve length.

    The CS at Lands End told me the lining was 100% poly. I think I am going to skip it. If I sit down tonight after a beer I may change my mind though

    Which color were you thinking @dackman?

    EDIT: seems like this AAQGAA thread was a terrific addition. 13 pages since Monday.

    @zcm, for your reading pleasure and consideration: http://thisfits.me/post/48699290892/...he-casual-suit

    I also considered buying it to act as a BlazerSuit™ before, but I strongly dislike the lapel width, so I didn't go with it.

    @zcm, wasn't considering the LE option, I'm actually looking for non-flap patch pockets.

    Been waiting for this one to come back in stock in my size.

    @Siepi, not only are you not helping me not buy the the thing, but you are ruining my productivity at work this Friday afternoon
    @dackman, I like it. Not sure they will restock it before they roll out the fall stuff. Maybe eBay?

    @zcm, pretty much all sizes have been filtering in and out of the sale section for the past couple of weeks (I may or may not be checking daily...hourly) Just playing the waiting game.

    There's an unconstructed tan chino from last year on eBay for cheaper, but minus the patch pockets, and it comes in the S/M/L sizing, so it may be my back-up.

    I like this one as well, but it looks a bit cropped, and that price is too steep, and its fully lined.

    Yeah, I'm with you on the Friday afternoon, just knocked out a couple of projects, may be doing some light Inbox clean-up the rest of the afternoon.

    I honestly would go with the LE over the JC. Crew's jackets are looking too lounge-y to me these days. The button stance is too low and the lapels too narrow. I like the traditional look of the LE, and in fact, I'm adding the LE shitake jacket (at least, maybe also pants) to my lust list.

    I really, really like the LE suit jacket and pants! I would tend to go for the traditional fit, though. Very classic looking, if you ask me. And like $70 for the jacket right now on sale.
