Women's Mandarin Boiled Wool Jacket
Lovely, versatile classic
This is a very nicely styled and tailored jacket. I got it in black and it is a "go to" with jeans, pants and skirt & boots. The boiled wool is not quite at supple as those costing 3 x as much. However, I did not expect that at this price. A really great value and a very flattering fit.

It's scratchy...and NOT very petite
I ordered a petite size small. It fits rather long... I like the color but will need to try it with a turtle neck to see if it's wearable as it is scratchy, irritating wool... something I've not experienced in a long time. Nice color, but LONG fit.
I've recently become very aware that petite clothes are not tailored to fit shorter statures by much... most diffrer by and inch and a half. Stand a 5'1" woman next to one that is 5'6"... there is more than 1.5" in difference. Short people unite and demand real sizing!
I am considering returning this item.. but want to try it with a turtle neck under as that would avoid the scratchy. I don't like to return things.. It's such a bother.

not happy with it
Disappointed in quality and itchiness. color as described but quality not up to your usual standard. I would return if it wasn't such a hassle.

Warm, pretty, and pockets!
Love the color, longer length, and light weight boiled wool.

Okay but not great
The color of this rose-pink jacket is very pretty but the quality of the boiled wool is not so great -- it is rather coarse and stiff. I've have several boiled wool jackets but none that had to be steamed or ironed. Maybe it will soften up with wear. The styling could be improved also.

Too big; will try again
I don't know the price, so I can't really comment on value. The size was too big, even though I normally wear a medium. I am going to exchange it for a small, and then I will see what I think.

Smart-looking, practical, comfortable
Good fit, excellent versatile color (I chose teal, which works well with gray, black, navy, beige) and an attractive neckline.

Warm and bright
This jacket is so easy to wear. It's soft, warm, and the colors are bright. I have this same style in several colors, and it is my choice for work or dress up. I usually wear mine with turtle necks or high collared tops, but with a low collar, the fabric may be scratchy.
