Rated 5 out of 5 by KATCH soft colors and vintage print in 100% cotton
I bought this jacket in small (usually ordering petite small) and am delighted that it's not too big. The sleeves were just the right length and not baggy.
The width at the bottom was a bit wide when I buttoned it up, but was easily fixed by taking it in on the sides to make a custom fit. I just washed and ironed it and it is now perfect. The length is 21.5" after washing, not 23.5" stated, thus perfect for petites. It will look great with khaki's, skirts, etc. and will be great for travel. The subtle colors were what attracted me to it and it will get lots of wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggie331 This jacket has great style
I have not worn this jacket yet because it is cotton - it is still winter where I live. I can't wait to wear it because of the muted color pattern.

Love this jacket. Great with slacks or light blue denims. A semi dressy look when you don't feel like really dressing up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Judy35 This is a go-to jacket that I can wear a lot.
I have looked at this item for a long time. This jacket will not just hang in my closet. It goes everywhere with skirts, pants and jeans. The print is subtle but matches many solid colors. This is a winner in my wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sniffer50 Fl, spring, fall jacket. going to cold stores.
The four petite fits me very good. Sleeves a little long....All long sleeve shirts are a little long on me anyway. No problem. I can turn the sleeve up if I want. If it's cold I just leave them long. The length is prefect for me. I'm a shorty!...I love the colors, just what I wanted for the winter...Soon as the weather gets cooler here in Fl I'll get plenty of use out of it...I have feeling it will be wrinkled after its washed...Not a heavy or light denim. Cotton Fabric. I got mine at 50% off, that's much better..... I could never pay full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Knoxgal6mos I love the fabric print of this jacket. Very femin
I'm pretty frustrated with this item. I just ordered it for the third time. The petite size XL ran quite small. The regular XL fit great out of the package, but shrank in cold water washing and cool dry, despite the description of "no shrinkage" in the ad copy. I'm hoping that the Plus 1X will fit after cautious washing. I really do want to have and wear this item. I've had no problems with other items from Norm Thompson, and feel their styles match my own, for the most part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vigivini Will look great during early fall days.
This jacket runs true to size and is a nice blend of blue and beige tones, so that I can wear it with a wide range of pants. It's casual enough to go with jeans but elegant enough to be dressed up with trendy slacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ConsumerOfAge The jacket is a good buy--especially on sale
The colors and quality are just what I expected, and I look forward to wearing the jacket often. That will be when the smaller size arrives, though. I had to exchange the original "M" for an "S."
My advice to patrons is to, well, pay attention to the size chart--the jacket runs absolutely true to size, and if you wear a small, get the small, even though it's a jacket (the design takes in the nature of a jacket--that it needs to fit over other clothes--the M was quite large). Finally, the jacket's sale price makes it feel a bit less like an indulgence, although the nature of the jacket itself suggests that it will have a long career and pay for itself.
