Some people said this was thinner than expected, but to me it was normal for boiled wool. It's not heavy, but it is warm. I'm a very busty size 14/16, and the Large fit perfectly and was flattering. Unique cut.

I watched this jacket at a local store for a couple of months waiting for it to go on sale. Then I found it here for about a third of the price. I really like the color -- I got the orange one. It runs a little big so buy it one size smaller than you usually wear and it will fit great.

Looked nice in the picture. Not that great in person. I usually wear a small and this item was pretty big and frumpy looking. The fabric was not what I expected. I have a TSD wool jacket and the fabric is more substantial and not as rough. Not sure if they have changed production standards, but I expected better for the price. Returned.

I am going to Italy and I needed an all round jacket, be it city or country. My daughter, who always purchases your clothing, found this jacket for me. The color was perfect, the styling was excellent, the weight was what I was looking for. I have already worn the jacket in southwest Florida and with a silk scarf, I was very comfortable in the early morn. I even had a friend in church ask me where I bought it and what your website was. Itchy, yes, but with a silk scarf or a long sleeved blouse or polo shirt, you can control the itchy feeling. I'm very happy with the jacket and know it will be well worn.

Two things you need to know about this jacket:
1) It's not boiled wool, as the description states. Instead, it is a lightweight, unlined, slightly-stretchy, wool bouclé knit. This means that the buttonholes are going to stretch - which will make the jacket unbuttonable eventually. However, though lightweight, the jacket is still rather warm.
2) The fit is much boxier than the photo indicates. On me, it fits like a swing jacket - quite roomy.
I'm going to keep this jacket anyway, because the boiled wool would have been awfully hot; the lightweight wool is more versatile. I love the asymmetrical neckline, and I think this jacket will be perfect for travel. I just don't expect this jacket to withstand everyday use.

Love the Two Star Dog products usually, so this was a disappointment. The XS was too big (I'm normally a 2 or 4), but more importantly, the line of the collar was cut crookedly. It's a casual wool style, with cut and overstitched edge, but it has a noticeable wobble in the line of the shawl collar. I returned it.
