Rated 5 out of 5áby musicgrandma favorite jacket
I am 5'5", 115 pounds. I usually wear XS and ordered this jacket in that size. I found that the fit was snug and wanted a little more room. I exchanged it easily for a S and have gotten a lot of use from it during the spring and fall. I love the pockets and the flattering fit. I can wear it to work or just casually.
It was a great buy at the sale price.

Rated 4 out of 5áby lemonycat74 XS Regular size too large
It's a well-made garment and the color is nice - I got a green one - but the XS regular ran a little large around the chest for me and it sort of looks a little boxy, not as attractive as I imagined. I thought maybe getting XS petit will remedy this problem but I found out from the customer service that XS petit and XS regular has the same chest measurement, and only just sleeve length and the overall length from neck to the bottom are different. The jacket length was fine with me with XS regular, so I didn't want XS petit. I wish XS was slightly more fitted and fit me well since I cannot go a size down any further!
I think LL Bean clothes in XS and S (no experiences with larger sizes) tend to have sleeves that are a tad too long.
The customer service rep recommended that I wash it and see it will shrink a bit ... and still I can return if it's too large. So that's the good service from the LL Beans as usual, that I appreciate.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Wings23 Classy Corduroy Blazer
This is a stylish blazer. It actually looks better on, in person, than it looks in the picture. I got it in the brown because I need something to wear in the mornings when it is cool (50s) that I can take off later in the day when it gets warm (70/80s). Something that will go with a lot of outfits and that can be worn inside as well as outside. This fit the bill nicely. I got my usual size in jackets and it has a nice fitted shape without being too tight. I can wear it over a light sweater and it does not look bulky. Fabric is soft with a little stretch. Sleeves are not overly long (which often happens because I am short). Wish it was a little longer length wise, only came to upper hip and I am 5' 4". I wear petite bottoms but not petite tops. I also wish the collar was a normal collar instead of the stand up type, but it does fold down nicely and stay there (I can't stand having those collars on my neck). Overall, excellent find.

Rated 5 out of 5áby llbeanershopaholic Very nice, well tailored
Love this jacket-it fits true to size. I am normally a medium in llbean shirts but the large fits well, the medium is a tad tight if buttoned. (I ordered a large to begin with, didn't like the color, so exchanged it for a medium in a different color-because they were out of the large). It looks great with a sweater and scarf on, just classic. The cut of this jacket is perfect, compared to the newer version kennebunk corduroy cargo jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5áby ELDShopper cute and cozy
I do like this jacket, though it runs small. Originally ordered Petite XS (I'm 5'2", 116 libs.) but exchanged for Petite S, which fits better. Deepwater blue is a lovely color.

Rated 5 out of 5áby sylvics Cute jacket!
Excellent light jacket. Love the eucalyptus green shade, it's perfect for spring. Very soft, snuggly fabric, even after washing and air drying. The princess seams give it a flattering fit and the mandarin collar makes it unique. Will purchase the blue when my size's back in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Byoung Trendy, versatile
Very satisfied with this purchase- trendy jacket with slimming cut. Casual but able to wear on many occasions. As expected, high-quality sewing and craftsmanship. 5'7 and 135- the small fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LIRed Glad I didn't return it
I'm not one for short jackets. When this was on special, I read the reviews, which were really good. I took a chance and bought the green in medium. I'm 5'4". At first I didn't like it on me but waited a few days. Then I learned that it doesn't work with something bulky under the jacket. When I used a thin top, it worked fine. I still didn't love it but started liking it better. I wore it to work yesterday and got so many compliments. Now I realize how good it really looks. Yes, the sleeves are a little long so I just fold them up. But my arms are long enough to handle the length. The sleeve length will get shorter with a bulkier top underneath. The jacket is sharply styled and perfect for Spring and Fall. Now I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Cin1295 Great Spring Jacket!!
I actually purchased this jacket last fall but started to wear it this spring. It is beautiful on with the great seaming in the front. I also love the stand up collar which is different from my blazers and looks super over my pima tees as well as my wrinkle-free shirts.
I ordered the jacket in deep water blue and now I'm tempted to purchase more colors.
