Jennifer Hudson Collection Faux Leather Jacket with Zipper Detail
Had to return for a smaller size, but the S fits perfectly. Was very impressed by the styling and the quality of the faux leather. This jacket is a winner; thinking of ordering the taupe, as well. Received the G.I.L.I. distressed leather moto jacket today (forgot to cancel months long wait list order) for 4x the price and there's no comparison. This jacket looks better, fits better, feels better and is made better than the more expensive jacket. Only criticism would be that the sleeves could be a little shorter, but they can be cuffed, so it's manageable.
YOU'VE GOT STYLE
This jacket was designed for a woman with curves. I love it. The zipper starts at the waist and this gives it shape. The bottom of the jacket is to cover and enhance. VERRY GOOD DESIGN. The zippers on the side for the pocklets are asymmetrical giving the appearance of a smaller waistline. The material is soft and leatherlike. The is an in between jacket, not for the very cold winters.
Well ordered this in black, received it today and I put it on immediately. Absolute perfection. The quality and fit is perfection....so much so, I ran to the computer and ordered the taupe as well. So happy it's on clearance. Thank you Jennifer!!
Eh, not really my style
Nice enough product, but wow, the proportions just seem...strange. The arms are too long (and no way to zhuzzh them up...not with those zippers...) and the whole jacket seems a bit too long -- plus there's all that extra material that is incumbent in the front of a moto-type jacket, because of the lapels that hang and flap around when it's not zipped.
I'm, alas, a short-legged, long-waisted, busty person, and if you're one of those, this jacket is NOT flattering to your proportions.
If you're long-legged, short-waisted and normal- to small-busted, I think it would be fine.
Unfortunately for me, it's going back.
Love, Love, Love It!
Very chic and soft. Details make this jacket look more expensive than it is. Lightweight enough that I can wear it indoors without a problem. Definitely a great buy!
Better Than Ever Expected
To be honest, I did not expect a great deal for this price. Wow, was I wrong! As some others have noted, you can not tell this is not (real) leather, it is soft and looks quite authentic. The style is very cute also. I got two, one in black and one in taupe/tan. Both are excellent. They are not for heavy cold weather of course, but a nice lightweight leather like jacket.
I ordered my regular size and it seemed to fit true to size, however, it is slightly boxy but not too bad. It could be a bit more tapered in at waist/back, but it really is not that bad at all. I think if you go down a size to prevent that, it would end up being too small in rest of areas.
All and all for price, is excellent style and quality, in my opinion and I am fairly picky about leather, and won't keep anything that looks fakey. I will say when I first opened it one of the zipper pulls fell right off, however, but was easy to reattach, so was not a large issue. Still quality control by people making these garmets always appears hit or miss, sadly, many designers.
One of my favorites from QVC
I love this jacket! The price was right AND the fit was fine! The longer arm length is the new "in" thing. It didn't bother me at all! Some of my newest jackets actually have thumb holes at the end of the sleeves. Now that's a long sleeve. Thank you Jennifer for this new "edgy" look!
Love the design but not the fit
The quality of the faux leather is wonderful and loved all the design details. But that is the good news. The bad is the strange proportion of this jacket. Seems to run large in certain areas and the shaping just didn't fit the body correctly. I am a size 8 and just cannot recommend this. Too bad the purple is gorgeous material.
Beautifully Made, But.....
I agree that the arms are really long and due to zippers can't do anything about it. Also a little tight across the chest if you are busty. It is gorgeous otherwise, well made. Almost, but not quite. Sadly, going back.
Feels so good....looks so good...but....
I love the way this feels and looks. It is perfect.....except I have to retun it. So sad about it. The arms are so long!! I have no other choice. Maybe a smaller size would work better, but I doubt it. I tried cuffing them, but the zippers made this difficult to do. It is absolutely lovely and the "leather" is exceptional. I am sad about returning it. Great looking and fits a little over-sized. Maybe I will try a smaller size....mmmmm...we shall see.
I am a leather snob but this faux leather is fantastic! The design sold me and it is edgy but wearable. I bought the purple, it is gorgeous. A great jacket, I love it. Thank you Jennifer!
