Rated 4 out of 5 by auntiebean Love the elegant style
I love the style of this jacket. Boiled wool is one of my favorite fabrics for a coat. It is one of the few woolens I am not usually allergic to. The collar on this however was itchy for me. The sleeves also were too long and could not be turned up. It is a sharp jacket and it does run large.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Paula5 Oooo, too itchy for me!
The styling is great, the fit was too big for me. ( I ordered - Large) I would re-order in the medium size, but I find the wool knitted collar too itchy for me. I do have to say, the leather sleeves are soft and the boiled wool body is beautiful. I'm sure it would be warm, yet, sadly, this will be returned.
Rated 4 out of 5 by alimatt Beautiful Style, Heavier Weight than Expected
This is a beautiful jacket. I ordered in black; normally wear a 2/4 - ordered this in the 4 and probably could have gone with the 2; it's very roomy. I have narrow shoulders, so the shoulders are a bit big and the lapel is very wide on me. Overall style is flattering. The top button will not stay closed. All that said, I am sending the jacket back - not for any of those reasons, but for the fact that it is VERY heavy, much more so than I expected. I live in the south and cannot see that I would get much wear out of this and, therefore, cannot justify the cost. So disappointing.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mariu1258 Disappointed
I loved the jacket when it was presented and looked forward to receiving it. Well...I am not impressed. I don't care for the quality of the leather on the sleeves and the overall fit is not good for my body. The shoulders are very large and the jacket is narrow around the hips. I also found the collar a bit overwhelming and the top button will not stay closed. Needless to say I have to return it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Foxxee Beautiful design with sizing issues.
Overall quality is good, except for a few issues, one is shoulders, poor fit, a pet peeve of mine.
Tried on both size 8 & 10 jackets with a long sleeve tunic t-shirt. Wear size 10 in Gili, if that helps. Runs large on the top, fitted in the hips. Warning! Shoulders run large. My shoulders are 16", not small for 5'4", and these jackets' shoulders are too large on me.
Sleeves very long, over 25" on the size 8. I'd have to shorten them 2 1/2 inches. I think the jacket best suited for tall gals with slim hips, and broad shoulders.
Jacket is unexpectedly heavy in weight.
QVC describes the sleeves as leather. Leather covers only the outer part of the sleeves, the underarm is polyester/spandex ponte down to the wrist.
Top button of both jackets won't stay closed.
I'd give Halston's design a 5 star. QVC's annoying sizing issues commonplace and deserve a 1 star. That the top button won't stay closed, the size 8 shoulders are larger than the size 10, both larger than QVC's measurements, and there really was barely a difference in overall sizing between the 8 and 10, is a quality control issue. I might try a size 6 for a better fit in the shoulders and top, but afraid hips might be too snug.
Would I recommend this jacket to a friend? Only if she was willing to pay shipping to go through the exchange process several times to find the right fit, if possible.

The quality.style and design are the reasons to buy this! I purchased the black but it appears to run large and my size is no linger available. Sadly, I will have to wait and hope for someone else to return their jacket. The sleeves run long and will need to be altered, theycannot be folded up like a Basso jacket.
