Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunflower111 This jacket is a classic
I really like this jacket. It's always the right weight for any cool day, or evening. I wish the lining was a little softer, like taffeta, but it works. The colors of cream with tan are traditional and just my taste. It does run a little big, but I'm hoping it will soften as it's washed a couple of times and hopefully shrink a bit. Other than that, I am going to get a lot of good use out of this jacket for quite some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Irishgirl716 Great Jacket
Jacket is perfect for my in and out of the car life style. Lightweight but warm perfect for grocery shopping or the many stop and go shopping I do during the day. I feel it was a good value and looks clean, crisp and stylish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Foodie12 Just what I needed
This jacket is true to size. It is also a good fit with nice styling. The off-white color is better than stark white and can be worn different seasons.

Although this jacket is light weight, it provides warmth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sunburn I am pleased with my purchase.
I have not yet worn this jacket. I bought it for those cool autumn days and nights and for those cold airline flights. The first one I ordered did not fit. The exchange was very easy. The jacket runs small in the shoulders.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marie13 Had to reorder, but that wasn't right either.
normally very comfortable in 2x.. Fit was way off, ridiculously too small, So I sent it back, thinking 3x would be fine.... Not! Much too big! I'm feeling like Goldilocks by now. I had been looking for just that kind of fabric & color, so I drew upon my alteration skills, narrowed the shoulder seam, and (obviously) kept the jacket. But they should really have a talk with that vendor!

Rated 2 out of 5 by HarmonyAlto Sleeves 3" too long!
I really wanted to like this jacket but am in the process of returning it.
I am 5'5" and normally wear a 10 or 12, but ordered a Large to allow room for a layer underneath, based on other reviews. The jacket was a little loose but OK, but the sleeves were a full 3" too long! Turning the cuffs under would have meant losing the entire cute strap detail. Turning cuffs up looked odd because the lining material at the cuff is not quilted and didn't have a tailored look -- loose and wrinkly. So my "true to size" choice on the Fit slider really reflects that it runs small AND large, smallish in the torso and maybe sleeve width, but too long in sleeve length. The photo on the model doesn't give any indication that sleeves are exceptionally long, so maybe it's the manufacturer's inability to produce a consistent sleeve length.
I debated whether to exchange for a Medium, but thought my chances of getting 3" shorter sleeves were not good. Also, as others have noted, the fabric is a bit stiff, not soft and cozy like puff jackets. The edges of the front opening, collar, and hem are lined with the contrasting color quilted material which is nice, but the torso and sleeves are lined with an unquilted 100% polyester taffeta that is not soft and has no breathability, making it easy to break a sweat and stick to the jacket.
If you have long arms and plan to always wear a wicking layer underneath the jacket, go for it, because it's really cute! Otherwise, I can't recommend it.
