Love, love, love! My usual size 14 fits perfectly! I've needed a basic, cotton white blazer for years and now I have one!
Rated 5 out of 5 by sgettoit Good Summer Suit
I purchased this jacket in black and white in a L. I am 5' tall and curvy, and they fit beautifully, although the black seems to fit slightly better. The sleeves are a little long, but the cuffs look alright bent up, or maybe I'll bend them under to shorten them. The fabric is a cotton sateen, with a small amount of stretch for give, and some extra room behind the shoulders for arm movement. I haven't washed these yet, but will clean them gently in cool water, hang to dry.
I also purchased the matching crop pants, ankle pants on me. They do need some small amount of alteration due to the difference in the rise. Please Louis make more petite pants to match your jackets. Please make more separates to wear together, ie this sateen fabric in a jacket, matching pants and skirt. Please don't add polyester.
Overall, I would recommend this as a nice summer suit, for business, meetings or business/casual.
Rated 2 out of 5 by NYYankeeFan Don't like the material
I'm a big Louis fan, and this jacket is cut nicely, and well made, but the material is not cotton sateen as I have experienced cotton sateen in the past. Cotton sateen should have a bit of shine, and be smooth/silky to the touch. This jacket is stiff and scratchy, didn't feel like it has much "give", and felt heavy for a spring/summer jacket. It also had a slight odor (not sure what the odor was). I returned it. This is not up to Louis' usual amazing standards.

Got the tan in a Large, on waitlist for the white in a XL, I am between sizes so either will do depending on what I want to wear underneath.
Great fabric, love that I can throw in the wash and par dry, then hang. The tan is great with EVERYTHING and the white will be nice with a navy dress, black maxi and just about everything else!
Fabric and styling couldn't be improved upon one bit, and I love that the sleeves be long or rolled up for a more casual look. As usual, I am in love with another LDO piece!!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by SilverChic Sizing is off
First, let me say I love Louis' clothing and have many Linea items in my closet - skirts, jackets, tops. However, based on Garment Measurements, I ordered this jacket in XL but it was too big in the shoulders yet the Large would have been too small in the bust. I have other Linea jackets and usually a Large fits perfectly, but that would not have been the case with this jacket. It is beautifully made and the tan color is flattering even for pink/ivory skin tones like mine. I am so sad it didn't work and that the sizing is off.

The jacket is a perfect fit. and very comfortable to ware. I was a bit dissapointed in the material. Not as shinny looking or feeling that I had expected from seeing it on T V or on the web, a bit rough, but it fills a gap in my wardrobe a I will order the pants , both black and tan, that go with it.
I wore the jacket to dinner one evening when it was cool and rainy it was perfect .
Rated 3 out of 5 by upallnight1 Good for cool spring days or air conditioning
I was hoping for a summer blazer with some shape and seaming. This jacket does offer that, but despite the fact that the arms and the back are unlined, this jacket was still warm for me. I am disappointed that the fabric is thick, rough and scratchy, especially compared to my chino cargo jacket of years past. If one works in an air conditioned office and travels on public transit, I think this jacket would hold up in those elements for years and still look new.
When I put on the dark tan jacket both with the matching pants, and over the t-shirt dress, my husband said, "Very corporate." Since I have been out of the corporate world for quite some time now, these were not must haves for me. I think they would be a workhorse in a casual business environment, one that allows one to wear crop pants.
I found this jacket tight in the chest in the XL, and still the shoulders seams were larger than my broad shoulders. Not the jacket I was hoping for, but this season's Linea collection offers me so many other fabulous selections, that I am not crushed that these pieces didn't quite work for me.

Nobody does it better that LDO when it comes to the cut & tailoring of a jacket or blazer. Had to have the Dark Tan to add to my Spring/Summer wardrobe. Love the 3 button front and the 2 button cuff that one can wear flipped up for some attitude. Find this cotton sateen fabric somewhat wrinkle resistant that yields a polished look. Size M is best fit for my broad shoulders, 37C bust with average length arms. Purchased the matching ankle pant for the suited look for work.

Love this jacket. I am between a xlg and 1x depending on designer. This fit like it was made just for me. I bought the tan and wish there were more colors cause I would buy maybe a navy or chocolate. Thank you for this beautiful jacket. I wore it the very next day out to lunch with my husband.
Rated 5 out of 5 by crdlb First White Jacket I've Ever Loved
I have assiduously avoided white jackets. I felt like a pharmacist, a butcher, or a lab tech when trying one one in the past. I decided to give it one more try since I have so many Linea pieces that would coordinate with it. At long last, it's love. The fit, the fabric, the tailoring--all work together beautifully in my usual size small. On me, it is perfectly form fitting.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BklynKinsey Great Summer Basic Jacket
This is a great summer basic jacket. I found the fit true-to-size as a more fitted jacket. I did find the sleeves a little bit slimmer cut, but this is a true summer jacket which is not going to be worn with long sleeve shirts or sweaters underneath. I was thrilled to have a crisp white and black jacket that coordinates with so many things in my closet.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazzmom Dark Tan Jacket
Love that it has full length sleeves-- this color can be worn into the fall here where I am. The jacket dimensions are the same as A201016 so if you own that jacket, stick with the same size for this jacket too. I like the cuffs with working buttons on the sleeves and the way the pockets were done too. This jacket looks very nice above the black/khaki embroidered tunic (A253384) --the embroidery is the same color as the dark tan of the jacket. There are also snap in/out thin shoulder pads. Pockets are sewn shut and upon arrival, use a small nail scissor to open the pocket seams. The front of the jacket is lined with a polyester material as are the interior of the pockets.
