Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cincero vest lovely This is a lovely item with a beautiful feel. I had thought that it might be thinner. The colour in the catalogue was misleading as it looked brighter than it actually is. The colours are more natural than I had expected but that is fine for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! I ordered this long vest/coat with a bit of trepidation, given the other reviews. But I couldn't be happier! The colours are lovely, the style is unique and i feel like a million bucks in it! I agree with a previous reviewer that the sizing is off - order a full size smaller than usual Peruvian Connection garments and you will be happy. The weight is heavy - and that's why it moves so nicely! Heavy enough to wear as either a vest, or as a dress with boots - looks great that way, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase This is a great sweater vest. It fits beautifully, is comfortable, and is stunning. Wearing it is like wearing a work of art. It looks great with jeans and with a skirt. I have received many compliments on it and believe the photo in the catalog and online is accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most unusual purchase I made from you My vest is perfect in every way: fit, style, versatility, and beauty. I took the hint from one of your customers and ordered it one size smaller. Good advice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Peruvian Connection Winner! What a beautiful vest! I'm so glad my patience won out when I was notified about the delay in delivery.It was well worth the long wait.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointment This Chinchero vest is a HUGE disappointment to me. Not only is the sizing completely off (I ordered a M since I wear a 12 ordinarily; an XS would have been closer to my fit) but also the proportions are terrible: The bodice panel (which should come to just below the bust line) falls beneath my ribcage making me look as if I had enormously pendulous breasts. It would need to have at least 2” taken up on the shoulders to hang correctly. I am not going to order a smaller size because I am sure there would still be the same problem even if the bodice were smaller. Also the weight of the piece would be more suitable for a winter coat. After waiting over 2 months for this item I am really dismayed to have it arrive and prove to be so completely unsatisfactory. I have no idea of how you made the picture of it online and in the catalogue look so graceful and flowing. This is the first time Peruvian Connection has let me down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Darker Than Pictured & Disappointing After a 2 month wait for delivery and anticipating a beautiful sweater, I was shocked to receive a predominantly brown & gray vest with scarcely a hint of blue. It looked completely different from the picture & is very heavy, making it unflattering in XL & uncomfortable. I have to return the 2nd of only 2 items I've received from Peruvian Connection & am quite discouraged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing earlier review I ordered this vest in my usual PC size (XL) and hated the fit--way too full from waist down so I returned and waited for a L which came recently. Now I love it! Really dresses up slacks and boots. Worth waiting for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exciting pruchase This combination is great! Outstanding over sweater and high neck tee shirt is great and very comfortable. The items together make a striking outfit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed in this vest I ordered this vest as soon as the catalogue arrived and then had to wait about two months for it. Was excited when the package arrived but very disappointed when I put it on. It fits on top but the bottom is kind of like a semi-full skirt. Not flattering at all! I ordered my usual size: XL and then returned it for a L. Have to wait 8-12 weeks again. Don't know what's up with all that and can only hope the L fits better.
