Luxe Rachel Zoe Suede Jacket w/Zip Off Sleeves
First off, let me say how much I Love Rachel Zoe's Jackets! This is why I didn't think there would be any problems with this one, but this was a big let down. I ordered the black size 10 and the black was not like the picture at all. Looked very worn! There were 3 spots where the suede add been rubbed down ( not just swiped where there can be a different look because its suede) it looked worn down. Inside, on the lining of the arm pits the satin material wasn't new looking, they looked as if the Jacket had been worn and no longer had the soft satiny look to it anymore. You know how things can snag to a satin material? It looked like that. I don't know if it was a return or what, but it wasn't right, so I sent it back for a return. The Black is not the dark looking Black as u see in the picture either, it looks whitish black, unless that was because of the other defects in the Jacket ( maybe worn) not sure. Anyway, love Rachel's other items I've purchased :)
Not So Good Purchase
I purchased the black suede Luxe Rachel Zoe Jacket because I was in need of a nice thin suede or leather jacket, but unfortunately I wasn't pleased with the look of the jacket when I received. Upon viewing online the suede appears dark and rich in color, but when you receive at home the color is dull and ashy looking. I decided to return it.
WORTH EVERY PENNY !!!!!
This is an amazing jacket, I ordered it in brown beware it runs large, I normally wear a size 12 but a size 10 would have been perfect. Excellent quality and very fashion forward, I will be ordering the black one as well.
Glad I listened and ordered a size up. The jacket fits perfectly! The brown is more like cocoa than chocolate and pairs well with the hot pink and teal.I'm not sure if I will wear it as a vest, though.
Rachel, you have excelled with this jacket. The style is grand, the suede could not be better, the fit is perfection. I bought it in brown and the color resembles a fine milk chocolate. I just love it.
IMO, "Pears" Order Up A Size
Great suede. Soft and feels like quality.Great, versatile style, too. But this is a little longer jacket than many I've bought from Rachel Zoe, and the bottom of it (when zipped) was tight across my belly. And while my belly's certainly THERE, it's not any bigger than it has been. So my regular RZoe size didn't fit comfortably. And tho I know the bigger shoulders are made to flatter, I'm not one for puffy sleeves at the shoulder. Just not my taste.
Looove this jacket
I bought this jacket in brown and I was very impress with the quality, I also love the versatility of the garment, you have 2 pieces in 1 which makes it a great value.
The pleated sleeves, the fit, the color, I love, love, looove this jacket. This is my first RZ purchase but I will certainly come for more.
The first thing of Rachel's that I am not crazy about. Found it runs small and not as impressive in person
Beautiful jacket, and very stylish. The shoulders give it a feminine touch. The suede is soft and good quality, and the black that I got is rich looking. Only gave it 4 stars because the zipper pull being under the armpit makes it quite uncomfortable. You can feel the lump of it. Why didn't the design of it, start the zipper somewhere else but right under the armpit. Found that if I unzip the sleeve just a bit, it's more comfortable and it looks fine to see the zipper pull just slightly in front on your arm (though it leaves a small area exposed under your arm, oh well, underarm ventilation). Also concerned about weather the sleeve zippers will snap or rub against any top that I'd wear without the sleeves zipped in. Though I believe I'll be wearing mine with the sleeves most of the time. Anyway, it's a keeper.
This jacket is absolutely adorable, The design is fabulous and deserves ten stars! I especially love the puffy shoulders, very flattering. However, the zipper or the pull under the left arm was very uncomfortable. It felt like a big lump. The right sleeve was perfectly fine. Maybe my jacket was just defective......or maybe my armpit is defective. Anyway, I have to return it. I hate to, but I have to.
Ba. Na. Nas. SUCH a great jacket
You know I had to quote Rachel's famous "bananas" when a jacket is THIS perfect. For my budget, this is a lot of money to spend on a jacket, but it's worth every penny. I can't get over how well designed this is. the suede is buttery soft. the tiny puff shoulder gives a feminine balance to the tough look of the suede and hardware and exposed zippers. I think it's about a 1/2 size generous in sizing. I'm a size 12ish but with big upper arms. I got the size 10 because I'm losing weight and I can wear it snug as a 10 should be on me now, but have no problems getting my arms in. It's NOT boxy, it has excellent feminine shaping to follow your curves if you have them, give you curves if you don't have them. The suede has heft and substance - it's not flimsy cheap suede but it isn't stiff either. Nice lining. I can't stand it I look so put together in this jacket!!! Even though this is really pricey for my budget, having seen the black one that I've gotten, I feel compelled to get the brown one now.
Nice but sending back
Jacket is nice and well made but not for me. I ordered the brown and did not care for the color (was a little too murky for my taste). Also, I could not see myself wearing this as a vest alone, one of the things I liked most about this jacket was the sleeves, esp around the shoulder. So back it goes but not for lack of quality.
