Colour: Spicy orange multi
Overall recommendation: thumbs down.
Fit: the jacket fit TTS to small. I got a 0, which is my regular size in outerwear and jackets I want to be able to close over my bust with ease.
Pros: cropped, nice depth of neck opening
Cons: this jacket sheds like crazy. This is my carpet and floor from just putting the garment on.
The more I moved, the more flotsam and jetsam it released. By the time I packed it away, the floor was covered in debris. The shirt I layered under it was also covered. I was shocked - it was quite farcical. I spent a good ten minutes vacuuming the floor and my calf-hair (not to be vacuumed) rug, after tryin this on.
Second con: the fringe ring around the shoulder seam, and the fringing in general gives the jacket a touch of bath mat, as opposed to sophisticated Chanelesque piece. I didn't like the buttons. The colour was odd, though also luminescent in the right light.
This is not the jacket to lust after if you want a wardrobe investment piece. I'd recommend the cheaper but better constructed FringyTweed Jacket in its place (#F1586).
This jacket was on proper sale two days ago. Now it's showing full price again. Avoid falling for pricing games.
I was sad, but happy for my wallet, to see that this jacket was a total bust. Oh well. You win some, you lose some.
Enjoyed both of these reviews very much (this one and the next post -- that leather knot bracelet!!) Giggled at the 'bath mat' comparison, hehe. Too bad about the jacket but thank you for taking one for the team. I can't believe how much that thing seems to shed, how ridiculous. That bracelet would make a lovely gift for someone in that exquisite, careful packaging. Thanks for putting them on my radar!ReplyDelete
