Liz Claiborne New York Anorak Jacket with Removable Hood
Lightweight but not for rain!
I bought the navy and tan (burlap) anorak jackets and like them a lot. The fabric is very lightweight and the coat fits well. I like the ruffled collar, too. The only problem is that it is not rain proof or wet proof! I was out in the light rain today and got soaked underneath. I have the coat hanging up to dry off. So buy it if you want a lightweight coat for a cool evening but don't buy it if you want it to keep you dry!
The fit was good, but the material was so thin that I was afraid that it might rip if the zipper or snaps became caught. I returned it, but would have kept it if the material had been better.
Great spring jacket
I ordered the jasper green and it is just beautiful. You might want to go up a size on this one. Even though it's a bit snug I'm going to keep it. I'll wear it on a cool spring morning and to church.
This is my first LC purchase. This 'jacket' is more of a coat in length and coverage. I ordered the medium, my usual size for coats, and it fits well. It is exactly as stated in the description. Lightweight, and the navy is a very true, rich navy. The fabric feels like peach skin and is not going to attract lint or dog hair (thankfully). It is bitter cold here now but I am looking forward to wearing this coat come spring, through summer and into fall. The reduced price made this a good buy.
Really Liz ???
From the moment I opened the package, I was not impressed. I expect better quality from Liz Claiborne. The fabric is flimsy, thin, and shapeless. The one cord (inside, for cinching the waist) was not sewn well, and was coming apart. Also, the fabric gives off way too much static electricity when putting on & taking off the garment. The color (green) was pretty and the fit was ok.
Very cute all-weather jacket
I bought this to be my raincoat. I like that it's a bit longer than a car coat, giving better coverage when it's raining. It also is a good coat for spring or fall. The material has a nice feel to it. I wear size 6 - 8 clothes and bought a size Small. If you are in doubt, I would go up a size in this one. I got the burlap, a pretty khaki color.The price has been reduced, making this a good buy.
So glad I got it!
I bought the green and love the color and fit. I wanted a jacket with a hood and something for rain or cool weather. This will be perfect for the fall and spring weather. Wish I could get the other colors!
I ordered this item in red on a whim...fell in love with it and am now back for all the colors. I wish it also came in black. I ordered up a size and the fit is perfect over a sweater, etc. The material feels like a "rose petal".
So Far So Good
I like the Anorak jacket so far. I just received it today and haven't washed it as yet. The length is great and it is really just as depicted on TV and on line. You can see the quality in everything about the jacket. The zip and the snaps and the adorable collar and the button off hood is all wonderful. My only problem is that in order to get it around my bottom, I had to order a size larger but it's not a real big deal. I'm not narrow in the lower hip area and this does tend to be straight in style but the waist cinches in nicely.
perfect spring weight
A very nice jacket, and would recommend this to most. I am only 5'8", and found the sleeve length to be a little short. Otherwise, very well detailed.
I love nearly everything I get from qvc but I have to say when I opened the package with this jacket I was really blown away. I ordered the green color and it is so vibrant and the gold snaps really add pazazz!! I totally don't understand the negative review because the waist is perfect for me and it is not at all tight on my curvy medium size body. The fabric is a silky looking fabric, very classy!!
So thin and high waisted
Flimsy material even though it is lined. Also, the waist is very high. Definitely a slim fit. I like the length, but not sure I will keep it. Like the ruffled neckline. Not good value for the price.
