Rated 5 out of 5 by KateD Runs large but cute jacket
After reading the reviews that called it boxy, I was wary of ordering this jacket. I'm so glad that I did because it has exactly the same fit as the old jean jackets we all loved in the 80's. During the summer, khaki over a white tee or camisole can't be beat. You can dress it up or down. It was lightweight enough for English weather, sunny and rainy within hours and it kept it's sharp look. I did order it in petite because I'm 5'4' and the sleeves are perfect. Several reviewers said that it wrinkled excessively but mine didn't. Perhaps that's only an issue in the blue. I've gotten so many compliments on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GreenKeys Very disappointed
I really wanted to like this jacket. I would call it a shirt, very thin.
First the collar was elongated and dips too deep. Secondly the material (blue) was too washed out and extremely wrinkled. Quite frankly, I doubt ironing would get out any of the wrinkles as they were so set in! All in all I can not recommend this jacket. Looked like an old chambray shirt that had sat in the bottom of a back pack for months!

XL was way larger than an XL should be. L was better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vic88 Too Short
I love the light weight cotton-linen jacket, but it is about 2 inches shorter than a conventional jacket. As others have said, it is the latest style that is short and boxy, and the model in the photo has the shirt hang longer underneath the jacket, but this is not the way I usually dress. I would love it if you could sell this jacket in the "typical" length for wearing your shirt tucked into your pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SNODSMOM Great Jacket
Loved the jacket so much I'm about to purchase a second one. Ordered a size smaller this time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GMie restricts movement of arms
I like the look and material of the jacket, but I'm broad shouldered and when I move my arms, it cuts across my upper arms. To sit and drive would be confining. It fits otherwise, so a larger size wouldn't work. I'll have to send it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RankinRean Great jacket, linen/cotton sleeves wrinkle easily
I like this jacket! I bought the steel blue and it looks dressier than a jean jacket. I really like the fit -- short in length, "square" (boxy, as some other reviewers note), sleeves nicely long (on me). The only downside is that after a few hours' wear, the linen/cotton sleeves have wrinkled quite a bit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Southeast Too large, boxy, and unflattering
The fabric is just what I was looking for, but the cut is boxy and unflattering. I ordered an XS, but it was still huge around the middle, and the sleeves were very wide, though the length was fine. It's going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edamommy Love this jacket. Light weight and cute!
I was looking for a jacket that was light weight for summer since I work in Maryland and it can be 100 F outside and 60 F inside my office. I love this jacket because it is the perfect weight and it dresses up my chinos and cotton shirts. Worn with a scarf, it passes for high business casual. It is a little boxy but it is perfect for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by smiley91 Good, cool summer jacket
I got the Indigo grey jacket, it is indeed boxy. I wear XL but had to exchange it for L. I also purchased XL indigo - flowery skirt to match this jacket, perfect fit. The jacket is great, feels so light and cool enough to wear in the hot weather.
