Rated 2 out of 5 by BenInAustin Not a slim fit!
I ordered this jacket in 42R, and was surprised to find that it's not a slim fit at all. In fact, it's significantly baggier than the "regular fit" jacket I purchased several years ago in this same size. That's a pity, since the materials are nice and it seems to be well made.

My future husband needed a new suit jacket for our wedding. We found that the larger the jacket due to the shoulder size, it also made the jacket larger everywhere, and looked too big. The associate that helped us in the store suggested this special order with the slim fit. It was perfect! It fit him in the shoulders, as well as everywhere else. We couldn't be happier!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Snidget22 Nice for the price, but has short sleeves
This is a great suit jacket for the price. I bought this for my husband who is 6'0, 145 pounds, and ordered a 36 regular. It fit great, but the sleeves were at least two inches too short. 36 long size doesn't exist. If you're big and tall, JCP has you covered, but if you're thin and tall, they can't help you. Had to return it.

I can not emphasize enough how important it is to try on the suit pants. The slim fit works nicely for a gentleman with little hind-end. And the pants run small in size but they look great on.

Nicely made wool suit for a great price. Slim fit helps for those who need it. This is what you expect in a quality suit

Rated 5 out of 5 by BudgetFashionisto Mixed classic and slim fits for a near perfect fit
I purchased the 40R slim and 34x29 classic in medium grey. Good quality shell material and the acetate lining in the jacket is significant notch up from polyester, which makes for a good construction at this price point (store-wide sale on top of sale price). The tailoring works well for my 5'11", 34" waist frame. Good button stance and he sleeve opening is decently high, which improves the movement of the jacket compared to the classic fit. I shorten the sleeves by a good 2-3" to show shirt cuffs, but this is typical of most off-the-rack jackets with my 33" shirt sleeve length. Unfortunately, the non-functional button hole stitching on the sleeves adds to the cost of sleeve alteration, so take this into account if you wear less than a 36" shirt sleeve.
The slim pants are a little tight for my athletic build, so I exchanging the slim fit for the classic fit. Problem solved! The material matches perfectly and, as an added bonus, the classic pant leg tapper down to the same width as the slim flit, so it still looks "slim" near the shoe break. I sized down to 29" from my normal 30" inseam for a soft (almost no) break, which is a little more current. The pants have a polyester quarter-lining, which is quite acceptable for the price.
I also purchased the vest (part of the classic set). The shell and lining material match the jacket (100% wool, 100% acetate lining and back).

We ordered this jacket online, as the store did not have the sizes we were looking for. Thankfully, it was the right size and just what my husband needs for upcoming weddings and events. An excellent value.
