Isaac Mizrahi Live! Notch Collar Blazer
I ordered this jacket because I love eyelet and I LOOOOVE pink! I've never ordered anything from Isaac before so I do rely heavily on reviews. That being said...I'm 5'6 155lb curvy girl...the reviews said it ran small so ordering by size guide & reviews, I ordered a large. The color raspberry is A-dorable. This jacket I felt ran true to size. Unfortunately for me, by ordering a size up, I now have to return for an exchange. I did notice that the arms seem to run smaller so I'm unsure what the next size down will do. I guess I will update this review if the smaller size doesn't work. The eyelet is fabulous!
Back it goes! Sorry Issac
Not sure why i must pay to return this one. The fit is way way way way off. I am just going to believe that someone enjoyed a few drinks while this was being made because Id rather not think that quality assurance at qvc is going south! On the up side, the ffabric and the colors are awesome. Please try this one again!
Love the Jacket - But...
I love it and I am keeping it but - QVC and Isaac: jacket was received with a open seam under one arm on the sleeve. I like the jacket enough to keep it and repair it but you need to know about the problem with lack of quality control.
Runs small; felt too warm in it
The eyelet is pretty. The styling is menswear. Because it's fully lined in cotton, which does not glide over the body like most linings do, it felt thick and warm. The sleeves are narrow and would have been really, really warm for summertime, which is the season I was purchasing this for. I also found it to run small overall. The smaller size that I ordered should have fit me by QVC's measurement charts, but I also ordered the next bigger size, just in case. It turned out that neither one fit so I returned both.
This is lovely well made and love the entire concept, however, I odered my regular size Large and even looked at the measurements for this garment (as I always do) and it should havebeen a perfect fit. LOL it was at least a Medium, so I will have to pay for return shipping and get an XL, but really afraid that this may be to large. So on the fence about to return for good or return for another size? Hum....
Purchased white in 3X, it fits more like a 2X, so I had to return.
Boxy, retro shape
Ordered this jacket in S. I found the shape to be very boxy with no waist definition. The shoulder pads added to the menswear effect-- sent this one back.
Back it went....
I ordered the pink. The quality was very good. The jacket was too long in my opinion....reminded me of something from the 80's. This could have been a combination of that, the shoulder pads, in addition to the eyelet lace. I am not short, I am almost 5'8. The shoulder pads are inside the lining so no option to remove them. Sadly I returned it right after I received it....
I purchased this Jacket in white--GORGEOUS. Since I purchased it, I have seen eyelet, it seems, everywhere. This jacket is styled, made, and comparable to all of the expensive jackets in eyelet out there from $200 up. I look at others and then I go back to my closet and look at mine and laugh at the prices others will pay for a well made jacket. I hope they discover ISSAC. I JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE ISACC. I look forward to his shows EVERY MONDAY. I am so disappointed when he is not on. Thanks ISSAC for all of your wonderful styles. I love them and you.
Shoulder Pads Not For Me...
Sorry but to me these shoulder pads looked and felt very dated. The Pink color was beautiful but just couldn't get past the pads....
One of a Kind``````
I purchased the white jacket. The fit is perfect. Thank-you for the shoulder pads; just enough for a refined fit. I bought this jacket immediately when I read that the lining was NOT polyester. I can wear this jacket all summer in the hot weather and my skin can still breath and stay cool. Thank-you Isaac for using fabrics that look and feel great and are not CHEAP, HOT polyester!!
Pretty in Pink
I ordered this jacket in the raspberry pink, and I can't wait for spring to arrive so that I can wear it. Totally feminine, totally chic. Fit is tailored true to size. Will look great with black, white, or prints -- with pants, skirts, or dresses. Thanks, Isaac, for another great fashion statement!
