Quality of Boiled wool not good
I purchased the periwinkle color which is very pretty. I liked the style. It would have been a wonderful jacket BUT the quality of the boiled wool is VERY inferior and feels rough compared to the other boiled wool jackets I have purchased from Appleseeds . They were the same price as this jacket I just purchased. I have been very satisfied with everything I have ever purchased from Norm Thompson. Therefore, I was shocked when I received this jacket from them.

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.
