Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic sack jacket This 1818 Madison sack jacket is a great fit - the 40R is well proportioned with 18" shoulders and a 43" chest, which is so much better than many other Brooks jackets that have gigantic padded shoulders with a miniscule chest. The shoulders have some padding but they are much more natural than the sacks currently offered by J.Press. The material is a soft and smooth worsted and not hopsack so this jacket looks polished. I am hopeful Brooks will offer more sack jackets and suits cut like this and will abandon the trendy Cambridge cut that has comically slim lapels and is cut ridiculously slim and short. March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE Navy Blazer This is THE quintessential Brooks Brothers navy blazer: 3-button (rolling to 2) sack model. All of the other blazers Brooks makes are mere variations on this original. And don't let the word "sack" scare you. There is nothing "sacky" about this coat. In fact, Brooks has tailored it beautifully: it is neither baggy nor tight. It's just right. Please, Brooks, stay true to who you are and the heritage you've established and never stop making this blazer. November 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Consistent! I have been wearing a three button Brooks Brother's Blue Blazer for forty years! One of the few things in life that hasn't changed! If only the rest of the world was like this classic! RSG January 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another classic from BB Even-though it is a sack non-darted, it fits great. I am somewhat between slim and athletic and in my size, it looks like BB designed it for me personally. I get lots of compliments from co-leagues and friends and am glad I bought this blazer. Thank you, BB. February 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic in every way I bought this blazer to replace a similiar one that has served me well for almost twenty years whose lining was pretty shot but otherwise it still looks great. The Loro Piana wool of the new blazer has a better hand that that of my old Blazer, it fits perfectly and has the same classic sack styling. I highly recommend it. April 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The ultimate preppy blazer What can one write about the ultimate preppy classic, the BB sack blazer? The cloth is loro piana, which is of the highest quality Italian cloth. The sack cut is an American classic, and has been a favorite of BB customers for over 50 years. While i tend to buy blazers with silver toned buttons, ones sak blazer must have the classic gold toned. While the sack cut is a little more geerous around the waist, the BB model is by no means baggy or ill fitting. There is no garment more preppy than this blazer. All other manufaturers of allegedly preppy clothing are mere immitators of this original. January 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful trad blazer I just received this blazer after a lengthy wait. I am certainly happy that I did not cancel as this is truly a beautiful garment. A very traditional 2/3 button sack with patch and flap pockets (a nice surprise as the jacket illustrated does not have this feature). The blazer fit as if tailor made and beautifully detailed. I am very proud to add this to my wardrobe. Now if they only made this in black with silver buttons I would have to order another one. March 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by As Good As Advertised This is the definitive Navy Blazer; everything else anywhere is a variation on it. I've had several over the years, and they always fit just as they're supposed to, look as they're supposed to, and wear as they're supposed to. No surprises (although in this day and age THAT'S a surprise!). I had to order it (retail store didn't stock the 3-button sack), and it even arrived sooner than I expected (which is when BB said it would). As good as it gets. April 20, 2011

Answer: 
No, it is referring to the front. The top button is folded under the lapel and is, to all intents and purposes, non-functional. This is what is referred to as a 3 roll 2, or 3/2 jacket. A classic American menswear look that, thankfully, BB and a few other menswear suppliers keep alive. I only wish they did more...

Answer: 
The top-most button is essentially part of the lapel and is never to be used. This is referred to , usually, as a 3/2 roll, meaning the third button is rolled into the lapel.

If you look closely at the picture showing the front of the jacket, you will see the button hole on the left lapel (adjacent to the handkerchief pocket). The button, on the other lapel, is not visible because it has been "rolled" under the lapel.

I'm a little confused from reading the reviews and Q&A as to whether this blazer (Item # 793M) has two or three patch pockets. The pictures above show only two patch pockets at the hip. Is there a patch pocket on the chest as well?

Does Brooks Brothers offer a 3/2 roll, sack, three patch pocket blazer?

Answer: 
Hello, thank you for you inquiry. Indeed you may wear our Three-Button Sack 1818 Blazer in the mid-summer. Naturally, any additional layer will intensify the heat but this blazer is crafted from fine Loro Piana wool, which is both breathable and lightweight. In addition, the half-canvas construction allows for better circulation in the lower half of the torso. Not to mention, a classic sack blazer is always in fashion in the summer, the gold buttons recall the nautical heritage of the look and this plays quite well throughout the season.

Kind regards,
Brooks Brothers

Answer: 
No button holes. Buttons are 3/3 arrangement of BB gilded design. I replaced mine with University, in nickel, buttons.

If you desire functional button holes, any BB retail store will accept your garment and send it to Long Island where very nice holes are (semi-) handmade.
