Rated 4 out of 5 by wherethemoneywent Unusual and Worth It
I tried all six colors and kept the three that felt special to me ... Ivy Green, Indigo, Blush. This jacket was worth all the exchanging to get the right size. You just don't see this kind of patterned leather or colors every day. Iron the lapels if needed, and use fashion tape to set the lapels where you like them best, or let them move as you move. My husband was a fabric buyer for many years, and with much curiosity he touched the jacket and asked me what the material was. When I told him it was leather, his face lit up, he touched it again, and said it had a "great hand". There is a Vista Print commercial that's been running for several months showing an architect designing her business cards, and in the first shots of her standing behind her work table, she's wearing a plain-leather, dark gray version of this jacket with the linen lapels. This style is of the moment, yet doesn't feel trendy. I'm usually a GILI 8, though with other GILI open front jackets with ponte, I've gone with size 6 in the past for a slimmer fit even though the upper arms tended to be snug. Due to the reviews on this, I started with an 8 and ultimately went to 10 after realizing the ponte sleeves were still a little tighter than usual and the actual measurements for the 10 were not much bigger than the 8. I'm very pleased with myself for picking these up, and have had to talk myself down from ordering the chocolate as well.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Barbiefae Beautiful jacket but boutique sizing... too bad !
I have gone back and forth about buying this jacket. Looks great on TV and sounds really lovely. I finally ordered it and was impressed how soft the fabric was, wouldn't know it was leather! I have to return it because it seems to be boutique sizing, arms are too long and too tight. I will stick to those QVC lines which offer petite and plus sizing because they are more realistic for buying sight unseen! Disappointed for sure!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most pleased Love It!! Love GILI!!
It was marked down but I was too late to order the green in my size b/c they were sold out. I kept checking back. As luck would have it, green came back in stock and on easy pay! I ordered it straight away, recvd it, tried it on and it looks great! It does have a large amt of material for the drape look in front, but it's the design. I love it and the rich color green. I normally wear a size 4 (5'5", 125lbs, 34C) and it's also my size in GILI.

I hope that now that this jacket has come down in price so much the ratings will improve because it REALLY is a very nice jacket and now at a price of a Faux leather jacket!? I now own the ivy and the blush in my usual size 2 and the fit is perfect! 5'4" 120lbs 34D I've worn mine belted with a skinny belt and open. Living in So Calif these will be perfect even for the "colder" months as outer wear. Who knows, if we ever see a LTS on this, I'd be choosing between the gray, black or brown in that order...hear that Santa? ; )

Rated 2 out of 5 by ak9x Awkward from the front
I am 5'5" 110 and bought the xs which fit perfectly. The leather felt thin but the pattern was attractive. The seaming was amazing but the open drape front was wierd. It hangs open instead of laying flat against the body. It only looked okay if my arms were holding it down. Watching the videos again, I can see the models are also struggling to manage the huge lapel. Also, I didn't like that so much if the fabric lining shows on the lapel. It's just ugly, Such a shame to cheapen an otherwise awesome jacket. I returned.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mkgirl-seattle Blush is not blush.
Before placing the order it was difficult to pick a color: the only two choices in my size were blush and gray. I decided to get they blush color, I am disappointed it is not like on the website; it's more like a dusty rose, very opaque. I'm going to return it. I might exchanged for the gray color. About the size, it is a little small, but not to thight on the arms, only if you have big arms. I like very much the design, I wish they will get black, green or brown back in my size, 12 -14.

I didn't realize there was a pattern. This is not blue. It is purple. Sending back.
