┬áby northshopper NOT WHAT I ORDERED
I have been in love with this jacket forever. I couldn't believe it when it was marked down. I did a little happy dance. I ordered a M as I am a standard 8. Then the reviews came. I should have known better and gone with a L. When I received it, much to my dismay it was the other colour- the more 'blanket' look. I wanted this batik look. I ordered again in a L with my fingers crossed. It came and while it does fit (still fairly tight - nothing more than a T underneath) it is SO NOT the pattern on my screen. I have never had a problem with ordering online and not getting #1: the colour/pattern style I ordered #2: what it looked like IRL. I always felt bad reading the reviews from the gals who wrote about ordering something and then not being what they expected. Guess it was only a matter of time for that to happen to moi. .... SIGH. I am SOOOOO disappointed as the L is no longer avail. It really IS beautiful - the fabric is just SO not what I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby PorkopolisPrincess Beautiful, but very tight fit!
This jacket is stunning. I love the colors, workmanship, and embroidery. Everything about it looks very well-made and expensive. I ordered my usual size M (I can sometimes get away with a size small, too) but I could barely get it on. I understand that iti's fitted, but I think you should at leastl be able to move your arms a little while wearing it. I couldn't; there's no way I'd be able to drive or do much of anything--other than stand still and let eeryone admire my lovely jacket--while wearing it. I have exchanged it for a size small and hope that works, I'll be heartbroken if it doesn't!

I took a chance on this jacket, given that the reviews made it sound TINY. I'm 5'8, have somewhat narrow shoulders and normally wear a 4. I decided to get this in a M instead of my usual S. I expected it to be very fitted, and to not be able to button it.
To my surprise, it fit fine (the S probably would have been snug, but nothing super small). The arms have room, I can easily button the jacket with a shirt on, and it's a nice length (a little shorter than it looks on the model). The fabric is stitched onto the denim beautifully, and, while the buttons are hard to do, it looks great either way. I was pleasantly surprised with this piece, love the fit, and would have paid a lot more for it than the sale price. Try it!
