A85088 - Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Boucle Tuxedo Jacket w/ Satin Trim
The Feminine Smoking
This jacket reminds of the formal smoking my father used to wear, but made, beautifully made for a lady. It fits me well, although the cut is generous, I could have gone a size down from my regular Small, but I don't mind a somewhat ample jacket. The construction is of outstanding quality; the design absolutely classic. Actually, Ladies, this is a classic, and as far as I am concerned, a must have in an elegant lady closet. Thank you, Louis. You are the best.
What A Beauty!
This jacket is just plain STUNNING! At the LQ price it is a steal. I ordered my normal Linea size of M and I found it to be a bit generous. Had there been a S available, I may have tried it. That being said, I'm beyond thrilled to get this beautiful of a quality jacket at this price. This has been on my wishlist for a long time and I LOVE it! If this is available in your size (or even a smaller size), give it a try.
NOT UP TO USUAL STANDARDS
I was very impressed with this jacket and will use it with the skirt;waited a long time to get the black in my size- needed large as I will wear it alone with a sweater in the fall. It is substantially made and heavy so with the sweater, no overcoat needed if not spending a considerable time outside. However, the jacket came with a terrible smell, mildewy in nature and was packaged correctly with tags, etc. w/o evidence of moisture. I am in the process of airing it out and will have it professionally cleaned as I can't get it again possibly. Would be afraid to store in closet w/o cleaning.Would have def. bought the magenta for jeans and boots but not now due to this problem. Manufacturer or storage issue in facility? I received it quickly, no water or vapor noted on receipt so must be from the point of origin.
I've had my eye on this jacket since it was first introduced, and immediately loved everything about it. What stopped me from ordering it is my height. I'm 5'-4" and this is a very long jacket. I finally weakened and placed the order. I'm so glad that I did. The jacket is absolutely designer perfect, even on me. The fabric, design, construction and guality are all first rate.
I have been buying as many of the Linea boucle fabrications as I can as Louis will no longer be able to offer them here because of the price increase in the fabric. This is a signature fabric for him and one which I just love for its timeless couture look. I ordered this jacket in my usual Linea size of Medium. The cut is very generous and I could easily wear a Small. I am keeping the Medium, however, as I prefer to have more drape in my garments. Should I want to nip it in, however, it would be easy to do because of all the seams. This is not a boxy jacket at all. As a variation of "Le Smoking", it is designed to fit more the way a man's tux would. It curves in nicely for a woman's shape and the button placement also contributes to a slimming effect in the torso. I also love the cutaway styling. The construction is perfect, as it is in all of my Linea clothing. I will wear this jacket in any number of ways: over my Linea LBD, over a matching boucle skirt, over black slacks, and over black jeans for a more informal look. I have no doubt that I will get many years of pleasure wearing this beautiful jacket.
I ordered in magenta, and, as usual, ordered 1 size down. It fits perfectly. It's a heavier jacket, not for summer, but it's ABSOLUTELY GOREOUS, CLASSY, TIMELESS. I LOVE IT so much!!! I'm petite, and have to always shorten the sleeves, but I do it with all the close that I purchase. Now I'm thinking about purchasing the black jacket as well :-)
Exquisite ! - Classic Black
Beautifully tailored - figure flattering - great length to wear with matching skirt. I'm a size medium in the Linea Line - this jacket does run just a little big. I'm confident my tailor can simply adjust the satin buttons by a 1/4 inch for a snug fit. I will enjoy wearing this fantastic designer look with it's weight of wool boucle/wamth for many years to come. Great investment to my wardrobe - Linea Rocks & Louis Rules! Love, Love, Love boucle - sure gonna miss it when it's gone !
I ordered thinking I was going to be wowed but was not. The jacket was too heavy. If you dont want to look boxy you have to button it and i rarely button my jackets.I looked like a football player,no thanks. This jacket would be great in a lightweight fabric.
Jacket to large
I ordered this jacket , it is beautiful, I had to send back,
The jacket is way to big.
the jacket is lovely in cut but so heavy to wear. It would be a topper for outside
a silk blouse or evening sweater. I would find it difficult to wear all evening at a party. The weight would cause you to be too warm indoor. It would probably be fine for an outdoor evening party or wedding party under a tent when you would need a great jacket for a cool evening.
I just do not like the weight but would luv to see it in a lighter version. Unfortunately, I will return it.
I rec'd. this jacket yesterday and was so impressed with the material and how nice it was made. This is a jacket you only dream about or see on the movies stars. I ordered my normal size and the only thing I have to do is get the cuffs taken up. I can't wait for the skirt. I just love love this jacket.
WOW - Ultimate Boyfriend Jacket
I purchased this in the black. I was very surprised at how well made and luxurious this jacket is - it's truly a designer piece. It fits true to size and the fabric drapes very nicely. It looks phenomenal with skinny jeans as well as pencil skirts and can be dressed up or down. I love it!
