Luxe Rachel Zoe Notch Collar Military Jacket w/Front Pockets & Button Detail
I want to make it clear that I rated this product 2 stars because of:
1. Price vs. quality
I would have given the jacket 3.5 stars if it were in a $50 price range, but the material is cheap for the price. Not just that, the plus sizes run small. I wear a size 18/20 top and the 22 would not button. I suggest that if you wear a 20, you order a 24. That said, the chest pocket flaps don't stay laying down. Just not worth it. I sent it back!
Love this jacket
Again, rachel does a great daytime jacket! was a great fit.
Everything i expected.
I received the green and really love it. It is very soft and comfortable, yet looks very polished. I am really glad I got it even though it was a little pricey, it is a nice investment piece for me. Thanks Rachel!
Arms too tight and long
I agree that the style and blue color of this jacket is adorable! But the arms are too tight and too long, and like others have stated, the pocket flaps stick out. I would love to see this jacket reworked to get out "the kinks".
I love you Rachel Zoe but.....
I ordered this jacket in blue.....loved the style of it when I saw it on TV. So I ordered a Meduim and when I received it.....everything but the arms fit.....too tight. So I returned it for a large thinking maybe it was because of the lining in the jacket. I received the large, and once again the arms were too tight. Sleeves were longer....arms too tight.
I thought maybe.......aaaah, it's so cute....love the style....and maybe it won't bother me too much....then I thought...I can't keep this....it would be foolish to keep something that cost me over $100.00. So sorry Rachel, this has to go back.........and maybe you should have a chat with your seamstresses to really get the proportions correct.
It was a nice try. I fell in love with the look of the jacket on QVC. I still like all of the detail, the buttons the pockets, detail on the back. The cut of the jacket is beautiful, the color is beautiful, the fabric is not.I wear a size 12 and the fit is true to size.
I returned this item because it was mostly polyester for $120!!! The fabric looks pretty but doesnt have a rich feel to it, like it would get snagged, rip,or pill very easily. So disappointing because it is beautiful. The pockets at the breast don't lay very flat either. Hope this helps.
I really like this jacket, it fits well, arm length is perfect, and the colors are beautiful. I bought both colors (size 8) I was going to return one but have decided to keep both jackets. The buttons add just the right touch. I don't mind spending $$$ on clothes if the value is there.I think this is a good value.
I was so disappointed with this jacket. It was just cheap- looking. The cut felt off and the breast pockets stood straight out. The fabric felt like cheap wool. It was such a good design idea, but the actual jacket was a mess.
Sorry, but I can't agree with the other reviewers. This jacket is well-designed, super cute and very comfortable. I am ordering the blue color now. The olive is a brighter olive, not dark which makes it very wearable. The material is soft. Overall, a great, stylish look! I am 5'6" and 135 lbs and I ordered the size 8, which is my normal size.
up to date military look! Nice crisp shoulders and if you have long arms these sleeves are good. The collar is attractive on and i think the buttons are right on target. You can't expect things to come in the mail perfectly pressed - come on girls - steam the pockets. I wore it yesterday, perfect for fall. I am really fussy - give it a try. And i like the olive color, more life to it than the usual drab olive.
Didn't Like The Pockets
First the color was not that shown in picture, it is lighter and looks washed out. Fabric feels almost like flannel. The pockets just did not look right (on me). I even asked my daughter and she said the same thing...too many pockets and they make you look bigger. If there weren't so many flaps I think it would have been better. I ordered size 4 which was fine but made me look "bulky". I like my clothes to be fitted and slimming.
This jacket is so disappointing. The material is like a really cheap felt, the jacket in general is like something I could pick up in my local supermarket for under $40. The breast pockets are faux which is fine, except one got very badly creased in shipping and the other sticks straight out from the base of the pocket. The only thing I could see doing to get the pockets to lie flat is to stitch them to the jacket itself. I really respected Rachel Zoe and her reputation but this jacket is cheap looking and cheaply made. I won't be buying from her line again.
