J Crew’s hacking jacket in tipped double-serge wool ($298) 100% wool, 100% acetate lining, 55% viscose/45% poly sleeve lining. It comes in black, pearl grey and spicy gold.
Size 4 – This size was good. I was surprised that the sleeves weren’t longer than this. I’m 5’2″ and would probably try a 6P for a more tailored fit if I were getting this. I liked it quite a bit. The wool didn’t feel itchy to me. This is the black blazer. The tipped portion is grey, but photographing as blue.
The Factory wool herringbone professor blazer is a more budget friendly option. It’s $178 and on promo for $168. The Factory section is supposed to be open only on weekends. If you’re able to get it in your cart and apply the MUSTHAVE for 30% (exp Oct 13), it will be $118. It looks like the tipped area on the retail hacking blazer is grey. The tipping looks off-white on the Factory professor blazer. Check it out on 1 More Shopping Blog.
