Pros: cut, comfort, price point, versatility, simplicity
Cons: cheap looking accent zippers
"I was fortunate to obtain this lovely jacket at a sale price....I am 5'6" 150-160 pounds with a 38AA chest and very broad shoulders - jackets are always too small in the shoulders, so the raglan cut of this jacket works perfect for me. I only tried the L - just loved the way it fit - nice and loose - and fit my long arms very well....it is a nice lightweight cotton - a perfect stylish shell. If you want it to fit like the model order down a size or two...I personally wanted the looser more relaxed look which allows me to layer for warmth. The only downside is the zipper quality - I'm afraid they might break - the zippered pockets on the chest are a little dicey and I've got the lining stuck in one so I can't close, but will fix it up. Very pleased with this purchase overall...."

Lightweight jacket, loose fit, take off the hood
(September 12, 2010)
"Tried this on in the store, where it's on sale for less than online. I'm 5'10", usually a size 12, and I could zip up the XS with no problem. If you like this jacket, SIZE DOWN. The difference in jacket length/sleeve length is minimal. I think I would have gotten the XS except the elastic cuffs were uncomfortably tight.
PROS - The coat design is actually very nice: a windbreaker type fabric, smooth, with two pockets at the waist and two zip pockets above the breast, with a tie in the middle. It's unlined, which is ok because I was looking for a light autumn jacket. It's good for weather in the 70s. It has a hood, which I like, but the hood is lined in this weird black net and looks very cheap-- yet, it's a button-on hood so you can always remove it.
CONS - The length of the sleeves-- I tried this coat in the L, M, S, and XS-- is too short. When I stretch out or bend my arms, they're 3/4 sleeves. Also, the coat is cut very loose and has raglan sleeves, so it's rather shapeless unless you tie the ties at the waist. Even then, in the L and M, the shoulders and upper part of the jacket had a blouson/blousey affect, which made me look bigger. An S took down the effect somewhat, but it was in an XS that the jacket looked the best."

white spot on color
(September 3, 2010)
"I love the fabric and the style. There's a small white spot on the color though. I was disappointed but don't want to take the time and energy to return it so I'm going to use black magic marker to cover it."
