Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful jacket; faulty size chart I would give 5 stars to the jacket other than the fact that I had to buy 2 of them to get the right size. I normally wear a 12 but based on the size chart measurement of bust 38" for the 12 (mine is 39.25") and my swimming enhanced shoulders, I ordered the 14 thinking I might need to tailor it. Despite my age, I have an athletic build. I don't find the sizing tool useful at all because I buy most of my nicer, tailored clothing in France (when I can get there!) and obviously, those brands are not represented. I was swimming in the 14 and the fit was very odd. However, I loved the quality of the workmanship and the fabric and so, reordered in a 12 which fit me perfectly, even in the shoulders. It is still sufficiently roomy to add a cashmere pullover underneath and the fit was still perfect, not tight in any area. I should probably add that I'm not particularly busty (B/C cup.) The fabric is very soft but substantial. Not too droopy or too stiff. I would buy this in other colors if they were available. Regarding the lining, it feels like silk. Bravo PC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket but it arrived "refreshed" Great jacket but the fit was slightly big for me. The jacket I received also showed signs of having been worn and it had a perfumey smell, and several strands of someone's long hair on the jacket. I understand clothing is tried on and isn't pristine, but for the price, I expect an item to be new and not "refreshed". I put it immediately back in the box and returned it. This is the second item I've received that arrived with signs of having been worn a little more than just tried on. In spite of this review, most of my purchases from PC have been perfect so I hope this recent experience was an anomaly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding jacket! This jacket fits my frame and shape fabulously. It looks smashing on, too. Love the quality. I'm 5'3" and weigh 127.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from gorgeous material, poor fit The wool exterior and silken lining is glorious and luxurious, but the fit was wrong for me. By the sizing chart, I'm a size 12, but the coat was a bit big in the chest and waaaay too big in the waist. Another one of me could fit in there. There simply seems to be no tapering at the waist, though maybe if you are very hippy this would look good? I have a solid, straight, and athletic build. It looks like I'm wearing my father's blazer -- big and boxy and not flattering. Very sad as I had high hopes for this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This jacket, like all PC jackets I have. Is warm, soft, and beautifully tailored. I love the contrasting lining. This classic will wear well for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I planned to style this more as a coat than a blazer and it is perfect for that. I ordered my usual size and it fits beautifully. I can wear a pretty substantial sweater underneath but it would need to have a fairly fitted sleeve which is my preference anyway. The color does read slightly blue which was a surprise but a pleasant one, I have been planning to add more blue to my wardrobe. This is an expensive purchase for me even on sale but I find it 100% worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated and classic! I am crazy for blazers and own several from Peruvian Connection, all of which I love. Carson is the ideal winter look. It fits a little roomier so I am layering and wearing it as a coat. Or, just enjoying the look of a sophisticated herringbone tweed in a looser blazer fit. The Carson is skillfully constructed and tailored expertly. Sleeve length is great for my six-foot frame, and the length is just right to cover my toosh. The stand collar works so nicely with a popped collar or turtleneck. This has instantly become a staple in my winter wardrobe. Thank you for offering such a magnificent article of classic clothing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful fabric but..... I was SO disappointed when I tried on this jacket. I thought it was going to be fabulous, but there is something not right about it. It isn't nearly fitted enough to be flattering, and so when it is open it makes me look square and heavy. At first I thought that what it needed was to be taken in at the back to give it more shape, but there are strange folds around the back near the arm holes. It fits on my shoulders, and the arms and arm holes are not at all tight, so I don't understand why this should be so. Also, when it is done up to the neck the lapel gapes. It needs another button. Of course the fabric is fabulous and the lining is to die for! I had just given away one of my many wonderful (and still looking as good as the day I bought it twelve years ago) PC jackets to my daughter because I thought I was replacing it with this one. Now I will have to ask for it back! When she tried it on she said, 'The famous quality of a PC jacket.' I am afraid the Carson Jacket did not meet expectations.
