I hesitated to try this one, but figured it might be great. Well, it would be on some people. Fabric is nice and the front looks great. But the pleat in back makes for a trapeze shape and it looks like a maternity jacket on me! Really unflattering; wider at waist than shoulders. However, the cut could work on some people. Soft and pretty, just too baggy for my 5'5" frame

The color was a paler rose than what shows on the internet photo. The fit seemed true but the fabric was so wrinkled and this was a surprise for a Tencel product. I let it hang on a hanger for a few days and it still didn't improve it. I didn't want to need to iron something like this. It was a great deal but I ended up returning it.

Earliest reviewers wrote that this jacket ran large, so I ordered one size down, and it fit in the shoulders and arms, but the pleat in the back doesn't fall smoothly over the hips. If you have hips, the back pleat will open all the time, unless sizing variation is the reason these are 2nds. Also, there is a twist in the collar that can't be smoothed with an iron. It is a pity because otherwise this would have been a keeper.

Very disappointing shape. The color is nice, but the back pleat makes it look like some kind of maternity jacket. I don't think I will ever wear this, but not worth returning since I got it on such a low sale price...

This is an okay jacket but the boxy look with the open pleat in the back is a little odd. I prefer jackets that are fitted around the waist , so that could be why. The back pleat is different and I think it intends to add a little trapeze swing style which it does but just doesn't quite work for me.

This jacket was just wrong in so many ways. The fit, fabric, cut. Nothing about it worked for me. Also very large in size. I usually order a large and ordered a medium as suggested by a few others. It still swallowed me. Would not recommend.

Love this jacket! Quality construction with taped seams, faux abalone shell buttons, side-seam pockets and upscale Tencel fabric. From the front, the jacket looks fitted, but the deep pleat in the back allows plenty of movement. A deep sleeve placket with functional buttons means that you can unbutton and roll up the sleeves for an even more casual look. The material shakes out wrinkles easily, so I roll up this jacket, stuff it in a bag, and retrieve it when the weather gets chilly. Perfect for transitioning in and out of summer.
