Tropical Microfiber Sport Coat 3.6 5 38 38
Cheap looking, ill-fitting... and wrinkled? I was really excited to find this jacket, as the idea of a warm weather, machine washable, navy blazer sounds great! Unfortunately, this example did not meet my expectations. On opening the box I noticed not only wrinkles, but just how shiny the fabric looks, like a $50 department store jacket. Putting the coat on I instantly noticed the 80's-style linebacker shoulders. Then I looked in the mirror and saw there is no waist suppression and how it makes a fit man like me look like I'm wearing a navy colored sack (at least this is a straightforward fix by a good tailor - the shoulder pads, not so much!) Then we come to the plurality of useless pockets. You can't put anything in these pockets if you expect the jacket to not bulge and fit even more poorly. But, the the initial water repellency is nice if you get caught in a drizzle. Time will tell if this feature will go away with wear. Also, I did wear it in a 90+ degree day and it definitely was better than wearing wool. I have not yet washed the jacket yet, but I am curious to see what havoc it will wreak. June 14, 2010
Excellent Travel Jacket Have read all the negatives, but the jackets I received were perfect in every respect, except there is no hidden 10th pocket in the current production. TravelSmith sent several replacements at no cost and were just as surprised as I was that this is now a 9 pocket instead of 10 pocket jacket. They offered full refund, but I opted to keep the jackets as they are fantastic for travel. The 2 deep inside pockets are perfect for passport wallets on one side and Tickets or rental car docs on the other side as one is zippered and the other is buttoned. All the other zippered pockets are bonuses. Doesn't wrinkle even if you bunch it up & use it as a pillow on a transatlantic flight. To keep it clean and not have to empty all my pockets going through the TSA security machine, I bring a large clear trash bag, put the jacket in the bag and send it through security. Then throw the bag away. I carry a second bag just in case I want to put the jacket in the overhead on short flights. Keeps it clean! Great for casual or dress travel and looks great. Not cheap, but it doesn't wear out. The one I lost to an airline I wore for 6 years and it looked just as good 6 years later. Not cheap, but if you want quality, practicality and a good look, its a must buy for the frequent traveler even without the "hidden pocket". November 5, 2010
Great Sport Coat / Great value I bought this sport coat for a 2 week trip to Bengaluru, India and it has become my favorite. I ordered in a Tall for longer sleeves and to my pleasant surprise I actually had to get the sleeves tailor a bit. The jacket drapes perfectly and is very comfortable in all climates. I prefer this coat to my wool Brooks Brothers. The all the extra pockets come in very handy for travelers. Cameras, cell-phone, passports, travel papers are a breeze. Especially the zippered ones. The coat lived folded up in the overhead comparment for nearly 14 hours without deep wrinkles. Shake out the coat and it's ready for duty. Short of 1 star on quality. There have been a few loose threads that I've had to taken care of. Nothing major or flawed, but not perfect either. I can wholeheartedly recommend this sport coat. Wears well, travels well. Excellent value. July 4, 2010
Nice Jacket I ordered the jacket in blue and really liked the styling, appearance, and functionality so I ordered another one in tan. I'm moving to Singapore and will traveling all of Asia and Oceania so needed a tropical weight blazer that was durable and very versatile. I think these will fit the bill. When matched w/ the tropical weight pants you get a lot of outfits from a combo of 2 jackets and 3 pants. I'm sure the wear and performance will be as consistent as everything else I've ordered from TravelSmith See you while traveling the world!!! March 26, 2010
Bought for a trip to Europe. Wanted something that would not wrinke when packed folded. Microfiber resisted wrinkling very well despite being packed tightly in a backpack for over 3 weeks. Looks and feels great. Also liked all the different pockets. Very happy with my purchase. June 6, 2014
Great looking jacket My husband is rough on clothes and does not get cold, so hates sport coats when we travel. This seemed perfect. got the stone color as he is always spilling something on this clothes and this is washable. It fit perfect for him, bought size 48 R. I did have problems out of the bag, it was wrinkled and was concerned about those coming out, but in the dryer with some wet towels in perma press cycle they came out and all is fine. Great inside pockets on the jacket, think this is a winner, and light weight for him too! March 27, 2013
The jacket is very full cut I ordered this jacket in 42L, my usual size. It appears to be cut for someone whose waist is larger than their chest. It fit well in the shoulders and the length was good, but otherwise, it was huge. I liked the color (stone) and feel of the jacket, so I decided to have it altered rather than returning it. Tailoring was only moderately successful. The jacket doesn't hang as well as it should. I will try a second tailor before I give up. If you do not have a pot belly, I would consider ordering a size smaller than usual. February 25, 2014
Useful but not great I purchased this coat for use on a summer trip to Japan. The light weight and mesh lining made the coat useful even when it was hot and humid. However, the coat did not shed all of its wrinkles, even after being hung in a closet for over a day. Also, the stitching at the top of the flaps on the outside pockets was done so poorly that there are permanent wrinkles which showed even after the coat was ironed. Not such a good buy at the regular price, but probably worth it at a heavily discounted sale price. September 5, 2010
