by GeoInCalifornia TTS! Same style as Florascape and Tavi!
This is the same style jacket as the Florascape Moto Jacket (available) and the Tavi Moto Jacket (sold out) also by Saturday/Sunday. The sizing runs different though.
SIZE: I normally wear a Small in Anthro exclusive brand tops like Saturday/Sunday, and a Medium in non-Anthro. I'm 5'5" tall, 135 lbs, 35-29-36, 34D, short arms, long torso, and narrow across the shoulders.
FIT: This jacket is TTS same as the Florascape. I sized down to an XS in the Tavi. The sleeves easily roll and slide up my forearms. The stretch insets keeps them from sliding back down. This jacket is fitted but not tight. If you are between sizes, size up. I'm wearing a thin long sleeved top under the jacket. There is extra space around the waist. The hem at the back and sides hits the top of my cords, while the length is slightly longer in front.
FABRIC: The shell is 50% Cotton and a mix of synthetics and other fibers. To keep this looking new, I plan to snap up the front and machine wash inside in a wash bag, then lay flat to dry. The jacket can be Dry Cleaned.
The knit fabric is textured, but the color appears dull. This jacket needed a little something to Anthro it up. There is a lovely piece of gray lace under the inside tag. I wish they had used some of this lace where it could be seen and appreciated. The smooth cotton lining that lays to the front when the collar is folded back, extends down the inside front panels, and is finished at the sides and hem. The hand-warmer pockets are made from the same cotton lining. The stretchy ribbed side panels, sleeves and back are unlined, which allows for stretch that makes this style jacket a great fit for almost anyone.
Take care not to yank open the snap closures. One popped off my Ivory Tavi.
Recommended. Runs TTS to slightly snug. The length will be short for taller gals. This does double duty in the office and as weekend wear. I hope this brand cranks out a few more before Summer.

I love this jacket! it is so wonderful. It is clean looking, but still has a little bit of edge to it with the drape collar. It fits amazingly. I ordered the small, and I believe it fits true to size. If it came in other colors I would probably buy another one! I am now going to be buying a second as a gift for my sister! :):)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Poli5 Nice design, soft, comfortable TTS, not best color
I agree with other reviews that this is a very nice jacket and looks good on. But it's not the deep navy pictured online, at least not the one I received, so I am a bit disappointed. This is a knit fabric, except for the lining and inside of flap collar. Outside fabric is 100% cotton, a bit dull or faded looking. May pill or look more worn I'm afraid with moderate wear and/or washing. And, while the jacket I received seems new, there is a small area near end of the sleeve at wrist that is a bit dis colored, i.e. dirty, but not easily discernable...so I will keep it, unless it starts to wear out too easily or doesn't look good after washing. I really loved the appearance in the online photo! I will have to take a look at the ones in my local Anthro when I get a chance. Bought a medium and it's a good fit, not snug with some room at the waistline, even when snapped. I like this as it accommodates a layer beneath. Usually am a small in tops, sometimes a medium.
