Hi, Need some opionions on which of these two jackets I should purchase. I think the Rugby one looks slightly better but my main concern is regarding sizing and fitting. I prefer a trimmer fitting and the J.Crew jacket I think has a trimmer fit than the Rugby one. Is the sizing for Rugby the same as for Polo? Rugby:
J.Crew:

I in for a cotton chino or poplin style suit for the summer. Tried on the jacket in J Crew. Couldn't put my finger on it but the fit was all off to me. For one thing dreaded shoulder divots but also the sleeves seemed ridiculously narrow and constricting. Other stuff I couldn't really describe but I passed.

I have a Small Navy Sack Jacket from Rugby, it fits great I'm a 36 when it comes to suiting. Everything is slimmer compared to Polo RL.
Quality is pretty good just Cotton wrinkles a lot and needs to be ironed, but it is more breathable.
