George Simonton Knit Jacquard Jacket with Fly Away Back
Horrid - Looks Like Old Lady Drapes
This jacket is horrid. I gave two, rather than one star, because it is well made and if this is your cup of tea for fashion, then I can see wearing it. However, in person I thought it was awful - for me and my style. First of all, the fabric really does look like drapes - as if you repurposed some old 1940s drapes. I am a young-hearted 63 yrs. old and I thought this jacket aged me by about 25 years into an old lady. The mandarin collar also was not flattering in the position it lay on my neck. I bought the ivory and it is not for spring wear - the fabric is much too heavy to wear it other than in cooler & cold weather. I had this for about a day before I sent it back. Even repackaging it, I again thought "drapes!"
Easily worth twice the price
In a well tailored garment, the inside looks as good as the outside and this jacket is so beautifully made, you could wear it inside out should you choose. You will not go wrong with just about anything this delightful gentleman puts his name and reputation to. I bought the Ivory, size 8 and it is perfect...shoulders hit where they should and the sleeve length is perfect. The fabric is an interesting high/low jacquard and will go with many items in my wordrobe. Felt like this elegant jacket was a total steal. Haven't felt that way about many clothing purchases on the Q for a good long time. Fit, detail, construction and price were beyond expectations. LOVED it.
I ordered in coral the other day when it was Lunchtime Special. I received it today......the color & style are sophisticated and I look fabulous in it. A 10 star styled jacket. I'm going back for the ivory.
I ordered this jacquard jacket in blush and it is a stately, rich color which can be paired with so many other colors. I chose size 8 and can say that it is true to size. I love the bracelet length sleeves so that my collections of watches and bracelets can be enjoyed. The construction of the jacket with the flyaway back and the collar style is excellent as is the fabric. I even plan to wear this as outerwear in the spring. Lovely and it looks stunning!!! Why would you not want this?? Order now, wear now!
I can't believe the 5 star reviews? This is ugly...the material is like a bedspread and the coral is a hideous shade..very surprised when I received this. I ran to return it!
I have this jacket in both the ivory and the coral. They are so beautiful and well made. You will be so lucky to receive this jacket at this price.
I got the ivory in size 16 and I paid regular price. It's beautifully made and the fabric is so soft. This is one of my favorite jackets and I have a lot of other jackets. On clearance, this should be a no brainier for you all. Try it, I think if you are looking for soft suiting with a dressy look, this is it in an A Line shape.:). Great piece, George! Keep ordering things like this Q.
I ordered this in the coral and loved it so much, went back for the ivory. Looks very expensive and washes beautifully. I receive many compliments every time I wear this. The cut is generous but not over sized. George, excellent job!
A Beautiful Jacket
This jacket is stunning. It is unique, the fabric is to die for and I love the fit. The pleating in the back is a wonderful touch and makes for added interest. I can't wait to wear this with pants or a pencil skirt. You did it again George. I love all the many items with you name on them in my closet!
Coral Color Very Bland
This is a well constructed jacket, thus the 4 stars, but the coral color is about as bland as it gets.
This jacket is exquisite. This is not an overstatement, it is a fact. The fabric is absolutely beautiful - has lovely chiffon-like accents that seem to float over the surface of the fabric beneath. The cut is a deliciously flattering A-line that skims over the top of the hip area. This is critical if you are a curvy lady and carry your weight in your hips and thighs. The little stand-up collar is so classic and just perfectly frames your face.
I ordered this jacket in a 1X, coral color. While the color is complimentary and the fit flawless, I have to return this jacket. The length is too short for my almost 6 foot frame. Although I am returning this wondeful garment, I am picking up another one of George's fabulous creations. All is not lost!
Love, love, love!!!
Even more beautiful than it looks on TV. Great style and so comfortable and soft. The fit is great and so is the color. Can't say enough good things about it!!
