Eighth Avenue Linen Jacket

Item #M50419
Was: £0.00
Now: £0.00
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and stylish, fit not so good This jacket is beautifully made, with inner seams bound in red and white striped material, the contrasted reddish stripes making it that little bit different and the linen fabric thick and sturdy, so I can see why a lining was not thought necessary. Although normally size 12, I ordered size 14 as I would want to layer it over shirts and tops (especially in a British summer!) but it was too large around the neckline and the shoulders are very prominent, not just re the sizing, but the placing of the shoulder pads (a look I thought had gone out with the 80's). The sleeves are very long, and even on my long arms come halfway down the hands, though I quite like the flaring at the wrist. As the jacket is quite fitted, going down a size would probably make it too tight around the middle, so regretfully I am sending it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Sturdy Fabric I zeroed in on this jacket many times before it went on sale - then I couldn't resist. Since then the price has dropped again. I love the colors, always love linen, and the cut is very nice. I would like it even better if it had a light lining; no lining but that's not why I have to return it ... it just doesn't fit me right. I do think it's me though so don't pass this one over because of that. It's really very nice!
