A224714 - Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Button Front Jacket w/Seam Detail
Great ombre/tie dye- like jackets for Spring!
Got in both colors in my regular Louis Del'Olio size XXS and they fit great! Both colors (coral and blue) are just right for Spring and Summer work or casual with a little tank or cami underneath. Cuffs on sleeves came not lying flat so needed to iron/press . Also , video on line shows a different jacket , can't find this jacket in video to watch what it might be paired with in Louis' clothing line. QVC- please fix the video on this jacket. 5- stars for the jacket itself.
I ordered both the coral and the blue and ended up keeping the coral and returning the blue. Both looked lovely but I was particularly in love with the coral, and I have a perfectly matching tank top from another designer that seems to have been made for it! I feel very snazzy when I wear it and I always collect compliments whenever I give it a spin.
At first look, I was pleasantly surprised to see the jacket had bound buttonholes, then when flipping to the underside, I see they are not finished on the back side--too weird to find acceptable! Since the "splotchiness" is too intense, I am returning. Fit was too long on shoulders--an easy fix with your own pads. Others might love it, but too many negatives for me.
INTERESTING HI & LO COLORS
THE COLORS ARE NOT INTENSE THEY ARE HI & LO AND WHICH GIVES IT A SUMMER FLAVOR ......UNUSUAL.....FITS LIKE A CHARM.....KEEPING BOTH COLORS.....
I ordered this jacket in blue and was so disappointed in the color that I returned it. On the positive side, the fit is great and the fabric texture is a smooth cotton. Unfortunately, there's also a negative side. The fabric's described as a satin finish, so I thought the blotchy appearance in the website picture was a result of the way the light reflected off the jacket. No so! This jacket's dyed in such a way that there are blotches of darker blue over a base of pale blue. There's also an effect of splattering dye with a toothbrush. It just looked weird, so I returned it.
Comfort and fun
I bought this jacket before it went on clearance-now it's really a bargain now. I chose coral and found myself looking for reasons to wear it. You have to try it on to appreciate the comfort, as well as the lift that the color gives you. Size M fits perfectly-for a 5'7" -150lb. frame. And it definitely does get the "looks." If a garment can be cheerful, this is it.
I ordered this jacket to wear during the summer as casual professional wear. Since I'm constantly on an airplane, this jacket does tend to wrinkle a bit. I ordered in the light blue, I usually wear a size 12, so I bought the L, and it is plenty ample... The color is pretty, but it's just a different look for me. I'm gonna wear it.
Possitively a 5 STAR
Great jacket, love the length, wonderful colors, can be dressed up or down - great with an assortment of jewelry. Keep up the good work Louis.
I am not a big jacket wearer, but this one may change that. I got the blue in my usual medium and the color and style are fabulous. The fit is even better than his usual if that is possible. Extremely flattering. And made to be worn in the summer. Highly recommend.
I had to go back on computer and look at video after recieving my jacket. Models jacket fit slim and small cuffed on video. My jacket's cuffs are large and baggy. Models are much slimmer than me so it's not because I'm frail and petite. The jacket is very nice, I could not give it less than 4 stars for that reason. I could tapper cuffs but because I'm shorter than models the jacket looks boxy on me. I see Mr. Dell'Olio style and it is very attractive but I am so use to denim that I would like to see this faded pattern on a stretchy denim jacket. Love Louis, He's a very good designer to keep on watching for beautiful clothes for women.
Looks like the sky on perfect day
The blue jacket reminds me of a clear blue sky with little wispy clouds. It just makes me so happy! I have it in my usual size Small. It is a very fitted jacket, so check the click here measurements carefully. It is a great topper for the Linea jeans in any of the colors. Thanks, Louis!
TERRIFIC LITTLE JACKET
I got the blue and I love the shades of blue. My xs, which is my usual size, fit perfectly. I also love that it is unlined and all the little details like the bound button holes and the inseam pockets. A terrific summer jacket.
