Joan Rivers Signature Houndstooth Jacket
Not Joan's best
The jacket is pretty (got it in the pink) and the material is nice, but the fit is not good. The gather at the waist comes around the side, instead of being just in the back and that extended gather makes the jacket poofy in the waist and hips. Not slimming. Fits true to size through bust, but large in waist and hips. Very matronly looking. Going back.
I'm 5'1" tall, weigh 118 and I'm somewhat thick through the middle. I bought this in a 14 and it was perfect. The lines of the jacket were not too long even though I am short. I have already washed it and it came out beautifully. Washed it in cold water and used the dryer on very low heat. Very cute and well made.
Happy In Pink
I love, love my new jacket! ,,,It fits perfect and I am hard to size without trying it on first, I'm short, and long waisted! My jacket is pink and black , I have strawberry blonde hair and fair skin so my pink jacket is so cute!
perfect for Spring
I received my jacket in pink and black today. It is so perfect! I ordered a medium I am 5ft 4" I weigh 138 lbs. Fits beautifully and I can dress up a pair of skinny jeans or wear it over a black dress...material is smooth and stretchy...can't say enough good things!!! Will really miss Joan Rivers clothing line...she was an awesome designer.
Perfect for me
I ordered the pink/black in Medium. The jacket came yesterday, and it is perfect. I am 5'1", and the length is perfect. I have this style/cut in two other prints. Joan's jackets really flatter. I highly recommend them.
Glad to wear houndstooth jacket in hot weather
Because houndstooth pattern is usually done in a heavy wool fabric I've been unable to wear in warm weather until I found this jacket. Houndstooth pattern is my favorite pattern. Bought in 3 colors to see which I would keep, ended up keeping all 3 plus came back for another for my daughter who is on her feet all day at work. She gets hot at work so ends up taking off her top layer to cool down. Believe if she unbuttons this jacket she can keep it on all day & stay sharp looking. Thanks Joan.
Bad Quality-Thin and Weird Material
The material is strange. Houndstooth should be on a woven material - that is what I thought I was getting. Instead for $50.00 that I paid I got a houndstooth pattern on a strange, thin material. what a let down and I feel duped
Many compliments & very comfy
This was a good purchase. Stretchy enough to be comfortable & to hold its shape. Washes well. Very classy with white or black. Wish I had bought the brown before it sold out.
I ordered this jacket in the blue and was happy to see that the colors are even more saturated in person. The fabric is soft and there is more movement than I expected. It does not wrinkle and therefore will be perfect for plane trips.
This jacket has gotten lots of favorable comments from both men and women. Yesterday a man complemented the jacket and then mentioned it would be great for someone who attended the University of Alabama. So he wasn't surprised to find out I was an alumnus.
This jacket is so comfortable. I am an XL and finding a jacket that is roomy enough in the shoulders and bust can be a challenge. Way too many jackets don't allow freedom of movement in the shoulder region and you feel like you are in a straight jacket. This jacket is so comfortable, I bought a similar style in other colors. I love it!
This is a good looking jacket that fits so well. I have several of the Joan Rivers Signature Jackets. Just bought two more in the houndstooth (black/white and black/blue).
Am very pleased with all of them. The cut is flattering and very forgiving. I am short so I find the length good for me. I do not think this style looks very good on tall women.
THANK YOU JOAN!
THANK YOU JOAN FOR HELPING TO MAKE MY WARDROBE EASY PULLED TOGETHER AND CLASSY!! EVERY PIECE OF CLOTHING OF YOURS I OWN GETS OODLES OF COMPLIMENTS! I NOW HAVE THIS VERY JACKET IN THREE COLORS!!
MY ONLY REQUEST WOULD BE TO SEW ON ALL THE BUTTONS MORE SECURELY BUT OTHER THAN THAT I AM VERY PLEASED.
