Good value, looks very smart, but check the sizing.

Good fit, but you need to remember that (like a lot of Chums clothing) the size is very generous. I normally take a size 42" chest jacket but needed to order size 40" chest from Chums to get the right fit. Being able to order a short fitting helped me to get a good fit otherwise.
Some people dislike synthetic fabrics but personally, I love the fact that this is 100% polyester. Resists creasing, cool to wear, easy to wash / clean, keeps it shape, and is hard-wearing. What's not to like? The only thing with synthetic fabrics, they haven't got much 'give', so they have GOT to fit properly, and luckily for me, this blazer does, spot-on.
This jacket come with some rather nasty, cheap-looking brass buttons which weren't even sewn on the right way up (they have a crest embossed on them, so this matters). However I changed them for some plain ones and the jacket, despite its low price, now looks good and was ideal to wear on a recent cruise.
