Rated 5 out of 5 by susano1130 great vest
I was searching for a linen vest or jacket to wear with long skirts for a sort of safari look. Could not find the right piece. They were all too heavy. I saw this and decided to try it. Turns out it is exactly what I wanted. Very light weight and just safari enough to not be "a costume". Really glad I bought it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladycrow Makes a style statement
The material is good quality, softer than a full linen, with a slight texture. With a little steam pressing & spray starch it will look crisp & neat. Love the casual safari style which has been upgraded to slightly more dressy by the gold toned buttons. The tunic length could be worn over leggings although I bought the matching burlap crop pants to make an outfit paired with a black long sleeve tee shirt. Will be great with platform wedges & long Linea gold toned necklaces or black pants & an animal print scarf. On the recommendation of another reviewer, I sized up on the vest & pants & am very glad I did. I normally wear a S top & M bottom in QVC sizing so ordered the M vest & 14 pant. I'm 5'1", 140#. Both pieces are well made & with sizing up, fit perfectly! Very pleased with the vest & pants.

Nice vest and great looking for linen. May run a little large.

I'm 5"7" and have a 36" chest, so the size small fit me perfectly. When pressed, the vest looks very sharp and expensive. I bough the coral and because it's kind of "denimy" looking, I can dress it up, dress it down, and wear it all year. It is unlined, so there is no bulk or bunching.
Rated 2 out of 5 by CCB defective drawstring
I liked the idea of this vest, including the style and fabric, but the drawstring was defective.
When I tightened the waist fit (pulled the drawstring out of the casing so more of the drawstring was exposed, I discovered two big issues:
First, the drawstring itself was very poorly stitched and had a big glob of threads in a sort of bird's nest. As a home seamstress, I know what happened. The thread got messed up by the machine, the machine jammed, and the extra threads got pushed back through the fabric over and over again. It wasn't a matter of simply snipping off a few loose threads (which I have to do with QVC garments all the time!). This was not fixable.
The second issue with the vest was that the casing holding the drawstring in place was unweaving from the inside as I pulled on the drawstring, causing a (different) mass of long loose threads to appear in the front of the vest. Again, I could figure out exactly what was happening. The casing was coming apart from its own unfinished edges hidden inside, every time the drawstring was moved. This is poor design and poor construction, and ridiculous for a brand which claims to be high quality. I returned the vest and will not reorder.
By the way, the shape was also a bit off -- too large in the chest and a lot of excess fabric under the arms.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TNPolly good choice
Bought the black. Pleased with fit, style and look. Wore with white 3/4 sleeve T and black straight leg pants.
Washed 2x. It does need pressing, although I guess you could get away without. Personally, if it says "linen" I iron.
The burlap/beige one would be a good buy as well.

I've always loved vests and knew that the Liz Claiborne line would come through for me once again. This vest is a season-less piece to add to my wardrobe. I love the look of the crisp, fresh linen in black, which goes with just about everything I wear. Thanks to the Liz line, I'll have this vest for years to come.

I love this vest. It is so stylish. The fabric is great, not scratchy like some linen fabrics, very soft. All the detail is terrific from the pockets to the gold tone buttons. My only negative is the option to cinch in the waist. If you want to do that, then order up to the next size which I did. Otherwise, it is perfect.
