Rated 5 out of 5Â by citydweller Everything I Hoped it Would Be
This jacket is AMAZING. I ordered it in store and am so glad I did. The fit is excellent. I took my usual size Medium in Anthro outerwear, even though I had never tried this brand before. It fits great. The arms can be rolled up a little if you dont want to wear them full length, though they are fitted sleeves.
The open panel is great. What looks like the top part of the fold is actually built into the jacket that way, and then the draping falls just as it does in the model shot. Really this jacket is exactly the way as pictured.
I am 5'7" and an hourglass and it is extremely flattering. It looks like a fitted sweater as opposed to a jacket because it is so soft on and to the touch, and has great fabric detailing. The back is shorter than the front, and on my frame it hit almost to wear the waist of my jeans would hit, so it wasnt too short or anything. A t-shirt wouldnt be visible in the back which is a great thing, I didnt want it to be too short in back.
If you want to fold the front panels across your chest you can, if you want to belt it but it is definitely made to be left open. This jacket is perfect and arrived in a heavy and sealed Funktional-brand zipper bag, so you shouldn't worry about any packaging damage. All in all I am really impressed with this jacket 100%. I will definitely be more attentive of this brand in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Katieraider so disappointed...quaility not inline with price,,
First this is just a knit cardigan...the fron lapels fold closed, I thought of stitching them down...BUT I am not a cardigan girl. I am 5'3" and it swallowed me up. I thought about ordering a size smaller, as it is an onlin only...but the qualith just wasn't worth it to me. If you would like a up graded cardicagan, and are willing to do something about the lapels, and are a bit taller, this might be for you. I reall think ti would look wonderful belted !!!!! A wide belt, would make it look super, but just to much materisl for my frame. But might world for you.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by zooey1118 my new fall uniform
just received the jacket and i already know it is going to be one of my favorite pieces for fall and winter! going to look great with dress & boots or with jeans. it looks and feels very well made and it is a perfect weight.
i'm 5'8", 34D, usually wear a size M or 8 and the M jacket fits perfectly. I find it really flattering on my shape - which I guess you would say is hourglass-ish.
