Rated 3 out of 5 by Hermitsunite To keep or to return? That is the question.
I'm seriously on the fence about whether or not to return this shirt/jacket. I originally ordered it in Large b/c that's the size I always wear in LL Bean's women's clothing. I'm 5'8"/132 lbs and I like my clothing to have a relaxed fit. But when I put it on, I found that I couldn't raise my arms very high. Assumed it must be too large in the shoulders. So, I decided to give a Medium a try. It was too tight and short in the arms, and I had the same problem where I couldn't raise my arms very high without the entire jacket riding up. So, I definitely will return the Medium, but I'm not sure about the Large. The reason I might keep the Large is that I love the "denim" look & color, and the rayon material is so nice and light and comfy. Wondering if anyone else has experienced restricted arm movement in the shirt. I'm thinking maybe the armscyes are too low as they don't come close to my axillae. Or, if I'm the only one with this issue, maybe my axillae are too high. But as far as my review goes, if this fits you better than it fits me and your arm movements aren't restricted, this shirt/jacket is a winner!!!! If not for the restricted arm movement issue, I'd have given this 5 stars.

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.
