Rated 4 out of 5Â by tiffintexas Nice
I tried this on earlier today, and I really like it. The jacket seems well constructed, and it'll be a nice transition piece.
As the earlier reviewer said, the sleeves are 3/4 sleeves, but with this jacket it works. I tried on an 8, and it was nice and gave me room to have my tops underneath. It's also not as boxy as I thought it would be, so that was a pleasant surprise.
The biggest problem I have though is the length of the jacket (which I should have expected, but I didn't read all of the item specifics on the website). I'm also not a fan of the hook-eye closure on it because it seems so flimsy right off the bat, but they can be tightened if necessary.
Overall, nice job, but I'll probably wait for sale to purchase, if I actually do.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ClothesPony32 A splurge you won't regret!
I stopped by my local anthro last week to check out the fall items.. I was only going to look and not buy when I spotted this jacket. It's by Tabitha, I have a coat by the same brand which just as much charm, so I decided to try it on just for fun.
I'm a 34C, 5'4 for reference and short waisted. I tried the size 6 to accomodate my chest. This fit like a glove! I so didn't want to spend the $178 but after trying it on I literally couldn't put it back. I figured this item is too cute and will never go on sale so I snatched it up.
I agree with the other reviewers. You can dress this up or down. I tried it with some pilcro jeans and my beloved marc jacobs mouse flats. So cute! I can also picture this with a little black dress, pencil skirt, cropped pants.. on and on. The quality is truly great and makes the price a tad more tolerable.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by yalegirl gorgeous lines, classic
This jacket is PERFECT for fall. The fit is great- not too boxy, not too long, not too high-necked. The construction is sturdy, but the thing I like most about it is the detailing. The lines are SO flattering and striking. This jacket could be thrown over a white blouse and jeans, or a cocktail dress and it would all look great. Definitely a classic design and wardrobe staple.
