Rated 3 out of 5 by MTht Beautiful jacket
Wanted to love this. Ordered it in medium and the sleeves were too tight. I sent it back and reordered it in large. The sleeves fit, but it was way too big in the shoulders. I had to give up and send it back for the final time.

This jacket is absolutely perfect for me! I took it on a recent trip to Alaska and wore it most every day. It never failed to look fresh each time I put it on. It is so comfortable......not a heavy jacket, but just right for my needs. The fit was flattering, not too long....just perfect!!
If it was available in more colors, I'd buy in a flash!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nightgale Terrific!!!
I've never had a "jean jacket" and this is perfect. It's the "denim-look" Lyocell, and it appears to be the real thing. Care was taken to make this a classic jean style, with chest pockets, seam stitching, collar, stonewashed color -- very good design. Even the buttons appear to be metal, like burnished brass.
The shoulders may be narrow for people with wide shoulders, which I have. I'm usually an XL, and I got a 1X. Also I wanted a loose fit in the body, not a trim look. The 1X fits fine.
As for the "issue" some have with the lyocell fabric, yes it's lighter and more fluid than real denim. This is specified as a lightweight jacket, it won't feel like bulky denim. However, I feel this gives it a better drape, especially on a larger person.
The only drawback for me was the price, this seems expensive. I'm not even sure why I got it at this price, an impulse. However, now I have it, I will be happy to keep it.

Bought this jacket for my daughter. She was not thrilled about until she wore it and received a ton of compliments. Now she loves it! The fit is good and salmon/peach color looks fabulous with her skin tones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by coldincalif Coral jacket 100% cotton
This appears to be a beautiful jacket. It is in the washing machine as I type. I bought it a size larger given the reviews. It is a bit too large for me which is ok being I plan to wear it with layers of other clothing. I love the color "Warm Coral" -- it looks great a patterned coral henley I bought to go with it! It was called the "Camden Jacket" when I purchased this on the Daily-Markdown special and it does not contain anything but cotton and it has lots of nice pockets to go with it! A very PLEASANT surprise indeed! Happy L.L Bean customer here! Thank you!!

I ordered the twill jacket (not the lyocell version, which is what is pictured above this review). I could tell the moment I took it out of the package that it wasn't going to work. It was a big square, not fitted at all. I tried it on anyway; it was baggy--not too big, mind you, just baggy. Beautifully made, as all Bean merchandise is. Gorgeous coral color. But back it goes. I keep trying various items and send every one of them back; they just do not fit or are not attractive. I am a size 6 petite. Surely it shouldn't be this hard to find cute, fashionable, well-fitting clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glissando Perfect Light Summer Jackiet
This is the perfect light weight jacket for a breezy summer day or evening. I really like the coral color for a summery look. The jacket is a classic design and the fit is perfect and the length is also good for pants or shorts. I am so pleased with this jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ElElBeenShopper Surprisingly narrow throught the shoulders
I like this jacket a lot but the shoulders are uncomfortably narrow, and I have narrow shoulders myself. I wouldn't recommend buying it in a larger size in order to get it to fit right so...it's a no-go, as far as I'm concerned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 49er Disappointing
I really wanted a jean jacket, unfortunately of late, like so many LLBean jackets ordered (and returned), the arm holes are cut narrow. This creates snug-fitting shoulder (back and front). As an active person, I want to be able to move, I'm not a fashion mannequin. Other than that, it's detailed and well-made, but I don't need another unwearable jacket in my closet. Sadly, it went back. Sigh... : (
