I have got nothing but compliments on the jacket, and I don't understand how it gives anyone a shapeless upper body considering it's a very slim jacket with very little fabric. But to each to their own I guess. I think the cadet jacket looks very good on you especially with the whole j crew outfit you got going on there. I have the same jacket minus the red chambray though. Just out of curiosity, what size did you get? This jacket was slimmer than most j crew jackets, so I opted for a medium.
