Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish but poor quality for price A very long wait for this jacket and a bit disappointing. Not the usual Peruvian quality fabric. As a lightweight jacket that would have been fine - but being so, it didn't represent it's price. I paid sale price otherwise I would have sent it back. Shapely and being fairly tall, it fits me really well and looks stylish. I think it would have been better lined.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Opera-sized shoulders. I am 5'5", round-hipped, with fairly broad, square shoulders and a modest B cup. Usually I wear a size 12, although sometimes a 10 in tops because of my small bust. I got the jacket in size 12. The fabric is soft and the jacket fits very comfortably through the hips. HOWEVER, the shoulders are WAY too broad. I can carry off dramatic shoulders, but these are simply disproportionate. As my auntie said, "These are for singing Rigoletto in." I did not pick up on their width because, you may notice, there is no straight-on frontal view of the jacket, only 3/4 profiles (front and back). I am, sadly, returning the jacket. If I may make a suggestion to the wonderful PC staff--please show at least one pure frontal view of an item that has "construction." Thanks much!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overly priced and unflattering Ordered size 6 and was way too big for me. Frumpy looking due to the length of the body and sleeves, not as stylish as I had hoped. Also small fault on the leather at the back of the collar. Material is very thin, no quality feeling, although the sewing work is good. Had to go back, no doubt of it. Very disappointed as I had high hopes for this item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only Tall and Slender Need Apply... It is a well made jacket. I loved the slightly poofy sleeves, suede elbow patches(I've been looking for years for that detail on a jacket)--the suede was even on the back of the collar---BUT--the jacket just was not flattering on my short torso and average 5"5" height. The unique curvature of the jacket would probably look better on someone less curvy and a lot taller. On me it looked more weird than stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Tailored Fit I love this jacket. I am tall, 5'9" and it is the perfet length in the arms and falls below the hips. I love how it is tailored at the waist; makes me look slim and gives me an hour glass shape. The tailoring is original and does not look like it came off the assembly line; looks very rich. Great with jeans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from odd shoulders Tried this on at the store and found it was oddly structured through the shoulders, almost as if it was heading towards poofdom. Fabric was stiff, maybe it would fit someone else better.
