I ordered this jacket online. Ordering things online is super stressful for me, but this jacket is truly beautiful. It looks like real leather, feels like leather, sounds like leather. It's soft to the touch and stylish. The perfect weight for a spring day. I am only disappointed that I couldn't order the petite medium instead of reg medium as the length would've been more appropriate for me. Nevertheless, I'm in love with this piece.
I would like to mention though, I find it surprising that only one other reviewer said anything about the wiring in the jacket. Like the other reviewer, I too am concerned about how this will hold up over time... Also, I don't think the jacket runs small. It's true that the arms are a bit tight, but nothing severe. I wish I would've ordered the small instead. Today I am wearing a long-sleeve collared shirt under a pull over sweater, and the jacket fits just fine, albeit a bit snugly through the arms.
Anyway... there's my two cents! Hope it helps some of you prospective buyers. :)

I've been looking for the perfect leather jacket and I think I've finally found it. This jacket is absolutely beautiful! I'm surprised it's not real leather. The material is soft and supple and even looks worn in places (which I love). Part of why I haven't been able find the perfect jacket is because many of the ones out there have too much hardware and some are too simple. This one is a great happy medium though! As other reviewers said, it does run small. I tried on my usual medium, and it was too tight in my shoulders so I had to go with the large. I'm only sad that I bought it too late to wear it all the time because it's already getting warm where I live.

Just as good as everyone says
As other reviewers have pointed out, this is a terrific vegan leather jacket. It's soft and supple, but with enough shape that it doesn't seem obviously fake. Some of that structure comes from wires that have been inserted into the collar and cuffs (like wired ribbon). They can be a little tricky to adjust, but they allow you to stand the collar up and keep the cuffs folded back. All the details are teriffic.
Sadly, I have to return it because I was sized out. Usually a Medium (dress size 8), my broader shoulders and larger bust didn't work with this jacket, even when I sized up to a Large. XL was already sold out when I placed my order. I'm pretty sure that would have fit—i.e. going up TWO sizes. People have written that the sleeves are tight; I think it's actually that it's cut narrow through the shoulders. If that is your body type, go for it!
PS My jacket arrived pretty wrinkled. I put it on a hanger for a few days but the wrinkles didn't come out. Who the heck knows how you'd get wrinkles out of this fabric.
This jacket isn't actually made of real denim/chambray, but a luxuriously soft, thicker-weight cotton. It's beautifully dyed so that it's not quite uniform blue, but almost like watercolor blue. Hard to describe. It's honestly the perfect weight for Spring (60*F SF in Bay Area).
My only caveat is the fit. I'm 5-5.5" tall, 128 lbs, 34C, 28" waist, 35.75" hips, with broad shoulders, and bought an XS in this. If my hips were any wider than they are- the bottom hem would be too tight when zipped up. So pear-shaped ladies, and especially busty ladies, will definitely need to size-up in this.
It zips over my 34 C bust but with zero extra room. I took home the XS b/c I like a fitted look, and the S seemed baggy/longer when worn unzipped. Even in this XS, I had to cinch in the waist quite a bit. Since it's 100% cotton, I plan to have it dry-cleaned. No margin for shrinkage!
I thought my army-green anorak was the only jacket I would ever need as an effortless layer that matches everything, but I was wrong. This is my new go-to.

Spring in Chambray
I haven't always loved chambray but this jacket won me over! It's perfect for those in-between weather days. It is light and the length is perfect as I don't like cropped jackets on me. I found the sizing to be true to size, although I was debating whether or not to size up. I decided to get the medium (my usual size), with some help from my anthro friends, because it was more flattering. I would have selected the large if I was going to wear more bulky/heavier clothing underneath. However, since I'll be wearing this mainly in Spring, bulky clothes are put away for colder weather days! Also, I am not one to pair blue/denim with blue jeans. It's just a pet peeve of mine, but this jacket is definitely an exception to that rule of mine!

Great with everything
I love this jacket - it's perfect for spring and literally goes well with everything I own. If you're thinking about buying it - do it.
If a sales girl hadn't found this for me I woud've never tried this on but I'm so glad that I did. While it looks cute on the online model the way she wears this jacket isn't my style. I ditched the string that keeps it belted creating a very different look...wearing it open gives it the look of a stylish blazer without the movement restrictions. The jacket is comfortable enough to sleep in (soft and stretchy), it's heavy (weight wise) but not overly warm making it perfect for those cold office buildings. The coloring of the white is hard to see but it's two toned with the front being a light bone (it's not a bright white) and the back being a light gray. The black is just black but there is a fabric difference btw the front and back(same as the white). I consider this a must have so I got one in each color. Unfortunately the black runs small and they're out of XL. Due to the stretchy material I can get away with a L but there is a BIG difference everywhere btw the white XL and the black L.

I got this sweater in both the black and white. I did the white in Petite, and the black in standard sizing (as petite wasn't available). I love them both. It is definitely noticeable that the white fits snugger, and smaller; but was no issue for me being 4'11 and 107lbs. The material is heavy - but not too heavy; and the angled front makes it so flattering. My only SMALL complaint, is that the sleeves are a little long considering they are rolled up; but the material of the sleeves is solid enough that you can pull them up a little higher and they stay. I definitely recommend this piece to everyone. It goes perfect with jeans, leggings, a dress, or a skirt. It's really so versatile, and can be dressed up or dressed down without issue.

So I passed this jacket over online and when I saw it in the store I had to have it. I purchased the white/grey combination but I could have gone for the black too. It is super cute and I took my regular anthro size M. I am 5'7" and 135lbs. I found the grey jacket in a medium a little bigger than the black jacket in the medium....sometimes that happens. This might not be true to all of these jackets but it was true to the ones in this anthro store. I thought you could dress up or down this jacket and it would be great with a tank top underneath. The grey/white combo has more of a distinct look to it and the black is more subtle. The back of the jacket is sweatshirt material and the front is a drapey fabric. Great staple piece.
I float like a butterfly in this. I can't help but add a few extra swirls in to my day. it makes me feel AMAZING. Thank you to the designer and fabric makers who are responsible for making me so happy. Sizeless, ageless. Boho deluxe.

This is SILK (NOT cotton/rayon)!
It's a lovely concept, and well-executed. The silk is fine, but I'm becoming a textile snob, and generally prefer textiles from India, over China. While I wish Anthro offered more products made in USA, I definitely LOVE Indian textiles. Workmanship is typically excellent. What the first reviewer said is true; you may very well need someone to help you figure out how to put this on. At first the saleswomen in my local store had a hard time figuring it out, and when I was checking it out, one came over to me and showed me how to wear it. It does hug your shoulders, so is a thoughtful design for this type of garment concept. I have not worn mine yet, but it is a very pretty piece.

This kimono takes a pair of dress jeans and tee from day to night with a classic flare in fashion. Could go with all white, as well, and look stunning. Very comfortable to wear due to the design that makes it hug the shoulders. You may need someone in store to show you the proper way to put it on as it doesn't come to mind by just looking at it straight on. Sooooo worth the price!!!
I just got this in the mail today. My usual size medium fit well in the shoulders and sleeves, but this does run a little wide in the bodice. (the bottom hem kind of poofs out at the side seams for me) Although the best part about this sweater is the fact that the collar and lapel are nicely tacked down. You never have to worry about it NOT laying flat or flipping around on you. The weight will be nice for wearing over tanks in the spring and summer. Still undecided if I'm keeping this one just because of the poofy sides. A little less noticeable if I wear it open which I probably always would.

VERSATILE LITTLE GEM
This fabulous little piece will transcend the seasons. It is soft, well-made, comfortable and so stylish. The colour blend looks amazing with navy...terrific with grey...compliments black and makes cream really dance. It is just such a stunning little winner. I could rave on and on. Such a great purchase.
I just love this style.. its so cool .. you cant say that you already have something similar in your closet. Its truly a work of art :) I can wear this with my jeans or a great slip dress.. really its is the perfect "clothing accessory"
Great quality jacket and not too heavy for spring in TX. I ordered both the 0p and 00p and small size fit perfectly in my shoulders and waist, but the length is too short for me. I am 5'2" 105 lbs and have a short torso with long legs for my height, so this blazer unfortunately made me look stumpy on top. I am hesitant to try this in 0 regular, since 0 petite was too boxy, and wish a size 00 regular was offered. But, if you are very petite or like the cropped look, then give the blazer a try since it is cute and comfortable. The color in person looks exactly as it does online.
