Women's Boiled Wool Best Vest
Wish this was available in petite sizes
I bought this vest intending to pack it in my carry-on bag in case I got chilly on vacation. It was too big to pack easily in a carry-on, however; but I decided to keep it anyway because the toggle closure is so distinctive and because I thought the color (black) would be versatile. I ordered a medium, and the vest is just a little big on me; I'm 5'0" tall, 120 lb., and a petite medium would have fit a little better, but I'm going to keep the vest and assume that it will shrink a little when I have it dry cleaned.

This vest fits good but I am going to send it back because of the material. The boiled wool is very stiff and wire like. Very uncomfortable to wear.

The color and fit were perfect.
The catalog description was accurate, and customer service was excellent

Fits well. Size runs true.
I ordered this same item some time ago in red and orange and loved them. So I ordered again in blue. Was disappointed. Not as good quality as the other two I had ordered before. Still nice, but would not order again.

Great gift: Mom & Mother-in-law both love it!
I bought one red and one blue vest in a size "L" for my mom AND my mother in law (both of whom wear a 12/14) for Christmas this past year and both women LOVED the gifts. The vest is not a heavyweight boiled wool, it is light. For these women "of a certain age" lighter is better, because sweaters in general can make them too hot. This is a great layering piece that keeps their core warm without making them overheat. Thus they both declared the light weight to be perfect (one lives in Idaho, the other in Virginia), and I've seen them wear it over a cotton ribbed turtleneck (on cooler days) and a pretty blouse (for a dressier look). The slight princess seaming on the sides offers a pretty shape without being tight. They both have ample bosoms and the toggle was in the right place in front for a flattering 'wrap'. 'll be back for more colors for next year! Maybe one for me!

The fit is good, a bit "easy" because it will always be over another article of clothing. The colors are rich and vibrant and the toggle fastener is very appropriate to the vest. I had hoped that the vest would be a little heavier than it is. I bought several as Christmas gifts for granddaughters, daughters-in-law and my sister.

Fit is true to size.
Looks very nice and slimming, great with a print top.

A nice gift
I really like the color and although I would not buy myself anything woolen it will look nice layered.
