Liz Claiborne New York Quilted Vest with Snap Pockets
Nice Vest Not Sure About Stone Color Though
I just received this vest in size XLG in the stone color. I read reviews and I based my order on them stating that it was a bit close fitting. I ordered that size XLG instead of my normal LG. I am grateful for the honest and detailed reviews. They help me when I make a decision on what size to order since they do vary a lot and sometimes the chart does not have correct garment measurements. Sometimes different colors of the same garment fit differently too. The color is what I am not sure about yet. It looked different to me online. I would call the color light taupe not stone. I have some D&Co lightweight sweaters and some denims shirts that would look good under the vest but I will try them on and see if that color is really what I want. I guess I thought it was cream colored or ivory but it isn't. I paid a lot for it so I will be absolutely sure I like the color. As far as the armholes to me they are loose but not too awkward. I think they will be ok since I want to layer sweaters and shirts under it. The waistline fits perfectly when zipped in the XLG (not too loose not to tight). Again, I will be sure to try on with some things I own and see how I like the fit as well. I do not have a checked shirt yet but am looking. I think with blue or brown or burgandy jeans and a colorful fall plaid shirt and this vest will be a great look. I think if you like to wear black jeans or pants and black sweaters those colors would work too. I have been trying to get into color and looking forward to some fall colored plaid shirts to add to my wardrobe this year.
love. light weight, warm and pockets
I love the fact that the pockets have a snap so that things don't slide out. Very comfortable, light weight and warm. I have it in white. I have been happy with this line because they have pockets that are meant to be used. Deep enough and thought through ...they consider that you want something to stay in your pocket if you put something in your pocket. Pockets have become an issue for me because I bought a lot of SG and I have tons of clothes now with no pockets. Thank you Liz Claiborne designers...
I ordered this vest in black, but got dark blue or dark navy. The fit is good and the vest is light weight. Nice vest, but a little pricey.
This vest is so cute, but very fitted. I normally wear a 1x in Liz, but couldn't close the front and the armholes are big so I don't think I would re-order a size up. Really disappointed because it's the perfect weight for what I was looking for.
long neck needed
This is a cute concept but did not work for me at all. The chest size was not as shown for a large. It would be tight to fit over another garment. Also, one needs a long neck to make the "flaps" at the top work. Zipped up, the neck hits my mouth almost and is very much in the way of facial movement. I hope it will work well for those with a long neck.
Horrible Sizing, SO SMALL!!!
This vest is sized horribly wrong! I got my normal size small in the natural cream color and the underarm openings were plenty big (a good thing to wear things underneath), but the vest wouldn't even come close to coming together in the front for me to zipper, not even close in the chest, stomach and hip areas, it was extremely tight and small! So what size would I go up to for this to fit and zipper without the underarm openings being absolutely huge on me??? Very cheap and thin material, completely overpriced! I like the style of it and the softness, and the colors, but the material was cheap and the sizing is no where near being a size small in the chest, stomach, hips, etc.. The garment measurements posted here are completely off from reality. Yet another LC being returned for horrible fit and quality.
Beautiful - runs small
OK ladies this is a beautiful vest - I normally wear a 1X in Liz but on the show they did not mention that it is fitted - very fitted - must return. It is made beautifully and a nice light weight quilting, a perfect piece for fall or over a top for that little layer - I will not reorder a larger size for fear of still to fitted, I am a young 60 and am normally a 18/20 top. My shoulders and back are smaller and the weight is all up front. A 5 star rating on quality but must give a 4 due to poor sizing.
