Rated 5 out of 5 by WelshMaid Classic, perfect fit, lovely colour's
This is the second jacket I have purchased in the Donegal tweed and I love it! This time, I bought the blue mallard colour. I like the subtle window pane colour's of white, turquoise and rust.The material is so soft and the jacket is well tailored. .....perfect fit for me. Another quality item from L.L.Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rhubarb737 Very nice blazer, slightly loose fit
I got this blazer in the olive colour. I am early 30s, 5'75", 130-135lbs, hourglass shape. I tried the Misses Regular XS as well as the Petite XS. The regular XS fit me better than some of the other Bean blazers that tend to run loose on me, but it was still loose. The Petite improved it a bit, but was shorter in a way I didn't like. I got the blazer on sale, so I ended up deciding to keep it in the Regular size and had the body width and arm bulk taken in at the tailor and it looks great. Really nice quality overall-if it fits you to your tastes then it's a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WelshMaid Perfect fit !
This jacket is a perfect fit for me (size XL) I don't find it boxy as other reviewers did. Material is lovely and soft and the colour compliments jeans or dress pants. I like this jacket so much, I am thinking of ordering it in another colour.Label is no problem to remove from the sleeve

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrJulie Great jacket. Shame about the label
I was pleased with the jacket -- until I saw the label on the sleeve. It took me 30 minutes and an array of implements (nail scissors, pin, nail file, magnifying glass) to get the wretched label off. I was fortunate not to cut a hole in the fabric. Please LLBean, I don't expect to have to do microsurgery on a jacket before I can wear it. (This is the second time I have had this problem with one of your jackets. The first time -- when a label had been sewn on all four sides with tiny stitches -- I simply gave up and returned it.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by BlazerLover123 Too big and too boxy
I wanted to love this jacket, but it is SO boxy. I ordered an XS, and I usually get smalls (5'2", 105lb) and even the XS was huge. Specifically the sleeves are very big around, but slightly short. Most of all, around the waist, I am just swimming in this jacket. If the seamstress can take in 4"+ I may keep it, but that will be difficult. As big as the whole thing is around, it is slightly short in the sleeves and overall length. LLBean PLEASE make your XS a true XS? otherwise I'm sized out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Portlandcasual Pleasantly Surprised
Overall, many of the reviews of this jacket were positive, but issues with the sleeve tag , boxiness or sizing issues made me a little reluctant to order. I'm 5'8", 172 lbs. and the L is fine. It does fall a little high on the hip. Sleeve length is perfect. Will work well w/ blouse or lightweight turtleneck. The neck could be a little scratchy. The Italian fabric is soft, lightweight and beautiful. It is well made and the sleeve tag took about 3 minutes to remove with a seam ripper. Buttons are well secured. I'm going to get a lot of use out of this classic for many years to come.

It took two tries to get the right fit in this jacket and I had to size down (and I am NOT usually an XS). However, I'm glad I re-ordered because I expect to wear this beautiful, classic tweed jacket for many years. It can be dressed up or down, and the charcoal color is very versatile. A keeper!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jenelle I really wanted to love this jacket
First off, the fabric is gorgeous. I got the olive green color and it was stunning. I wanted to love this jacket so much but it is getting returned. I ordered one in L and one in XL because of the sizing issues noted by other reviewers. Unfortunately, for my size/shape it was too boxy and therefore, too unflattering to wear. If it was just a little longer, it would be perfect! Again, I really, really wanted to love it (I already had outfits in mind to style it with) but I need a little bit more length in a jacket for it to suit me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RIYogaGirl Why was the tag sewn on the sleeve?
I ordered two of these blazers - the blue mallard and houndstooth. Beautiful fabric and well made. I'm looking forward to wearing these to work with either black pants or jeans. My only complaint is the tag sewn on the outside sleeve. It took over an hour to get them off. The tags were double stitched and sewn directly into the fabric of the blazers. Please consider changing this. I'm surprised I didn't damage the blazers trying to get the tags off.

I ordered this blazer to wear to work. It pairs nicely with black dress pants. It runs big, so I ordered down a size. My only complaint is the tag on the outside sleeve. I haven't figure out how to remove it yet.
