Rated 4 out of 5 by ggchick Liked It But Unsure About Sizing
based on reviews I ordered a size up because I things a little roomier. I wouldn't recommend sizing up if you want to wear it as a blazer with a single layer underneath. I'm going to keep it and wear more as a fall jacket - I wore it over a polo and fleece yesterday. I love the blazer thinking I may order one in my regular size in a different color for more of the blazer feel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rhubarb737 Happy with my purchase
I got this blazer in dark plum in size XS Misses Regular. I'm about 5'75", 130-135lbs, early 30s, hourglass shape. I really like the colour of the blazer and the versatility of wearing it as a bit of an outerwear jacket as well as in its blazer role. At the end of the day, the fit is a bit loose on me, but compared to other blazers I have tried at LLBean so far, it is a bit of a more shapely fit, though it certainly looks roomier on me than how it is pictured on the model and I got the smallest size in my category...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hermitsunite A lovely surprise: It fits!
I'd been eyeing this blazer online for several weeks but was hesitant to order it because I was worried it would be too short on me or would otherwise not fit. Finally took the plunge and bought it in "deepest green" at a sale price. I ordered size Large as I like my jackets roomy and sometimes find that sleeves are too short for me in size Medium.
I am 5 ft 7.5 inches and weigh approximately 132 pounds. I'm relatively long in the torso which is why shirts & jackets are often too short for my liking. Also, styles tend to run short these days and I'm not a fan of the cropped look. But this blazer falls at a length that makes me happy. The blazer itself might be considered a bit "boxy" but boxy is a look I fancy. The style strikes me as somewhat safari-like and I'm a fan of that look. The corduroy is nice and soft and the green is a very pretty shade. This one's a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by musicacad Great jacket!
Really cool jacket--beautiful and substantial but soft corduroy, great details, cozy. I bought up a size because I like my jackets roomy. This jacket just felt right as soon as I put it on. Wish I could order all the colors! The sale colors that I ordered (green and plum) are beautiful.

I am looking forward to wearing this dusty olive corduroy blazer. The length is good and the blazer has a tailored effect. I especially like the patched elbows - very collegiate touch. Worn with a turtleneck it should make a wicked nice autumn item.
My criticism is that I had purchased your dusty olive corduroy Bay Back pants with the intent of having a matching suit, however, even though the colors have the same name the dye was different and the two pieces did not match at all.
In the future, it would be nice to be able to match up corduroy pants and blazers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by UpstaterGal Wrinkled
The jacket arrived completely wrinkled and bundled up. The folds affects the nap of the corduroy so that there are white marks. I did try it on. The fit was true to size (small for me) and the arms were not tight. However, it definitely did not seem like an $80 jacket and the way it arrived really put me off so I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scampy Great jacket
I wanted a red cordouroy jacket and came across this one, online. I am petite but I ordered the small in regular size. I wanted the jacket to be loose so I can wear sweaters underneath. The sleeves are a little long but I can roll them. A Great Fit for 80 bucks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 Perfect topper for Beans corduroy pants
Bought it in beige. It is the perfect accent jacket for the all corduroy pants I already own in multiple colors from Bean. It's not too heavy so you can comfortably wear a blouse underneath and not have to take it later off because you get too hot. I find the details on the in good taste, feminine and quite attractive. I have only worn it a few times, but every time I have, I received multiple compliments on it, and "how put together" my outfit looks. I am 5'1/2", weigh 125, waist 27, hips 37, 33 inches through my back. Small Misses fits me well. I do not plan on washing the coat but rather having it dry cleaned. I have done some spot cleaning, however, with great results. Hope this helps.

This blazer fit as expected, is lightweight so excellent for layering, and has a nice finish.
For me, I'm especially grateful that the arms are cut large enough to be comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zenlife My new absolute favorite
I wore this everyday for last few weeks as a fall jacket. I love the jewel colors plum and deep green. It has great shape and structure, while being soft and figure hugging as well. I am not a fan of the chest pockets, but all the other details are nice and make it more interesting. I love how the lapel can stay folded, but can be buttoned to chin if needed.
Given the design, it is not a conventional work type blazer and it is pricey for a cotton jacket, but once I tried it on at the store, it is now my fall wardrobe staple and I plan to use it to layer in winter under my boiled wool coat and also as an indoor jacket on its own. The green color will be great for spring. I just hope it holds up well after washing.
