Ludlow Sport Coat In Grey Checked Irish Linen

This version of the J.Crew’s Ludlow sport coat is woven in linen from Baird McNutt in Ireland (Irish linen is considered the best in the world and McNutt the best in Ireland) and is unconstructed. In other words, it’s made without any of the internal canvasing and padding that give your suit jackets their precise silhouettes. This also means it’s lighter and ideal for warm weather. Think of it as the kind of jacket that you throw over an armchair rather than put on a hanger, but it still looks polished.
