Rated 5 out of 5 by bodeen Well now I have all the Colors except Green!
This has to be one of the best buys in her line! I live in Colorado, where layering is a must and I had bought the Wheat and it went with my brown tweed jacket, then I remembered that my Pink Columbia Coat was not has warm as I thought it would be, so I bought the pink and Grey/Black!! Perfect yet again. So today I bought the red and blue for my other jackets! They are soft and easy to launder. There was a comment about the pockets being sewed up, that is tacking and only there for the pockets to lay down during construction, they are meant to be un-tacked by the customer ( this is actually a high quality process) and shows the care that Susan puts into her garments. I may have spent some change on these, but added up they will make what I already own , much more functional. XS for 5 foot 3 and 135 lbs ( on the busty side) Sorry I do not wear Green :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by jabra Pockets Are Perfect
Pockets on well-made garments are often basted shut. Find the thread and pull it to open your pockets. They are well-placed and deep enough to be useful.

I like Susan Graver's designs, but I LOVE this vest. The weight, feel, and fit is perfect for me. Susan knows how to design for the plus-size woman. My only change I'd like to see in this vest is an open pocket.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mama Jane Nice Vest But Will Return It
This is a very soft warm fleece vest, fits great, very comfortable except for the mandarin collar. Collar seemed to always be in my face. I have a short neck, even tried folding collar back but it would not stay without tacking it down or pinning it. Would love for Susan to make more things without a collar. Several of my friends have mentioned that they're also looking for more jackets and/or vests without a collar. Hope Susan will consider our request.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Maps90 Whats up with Quality control?
I love wearing vests and I wanted a navy vest. Loved it so much ordered the wheat. I love the fleece texture and I don't feel that it is bulky. I ordered my regular size medium and it fits perfectly. I love to wear in the house as a layering piece it keeps me warm. I wear it over my turtlenecks With a little persuasion, I got the collar to fold down.
I give it 4 stars because when I received the blue vest the pockets were halfway sewed shut. I had to make sure that these were supposed to be functioning pockets. I got a loose thread and got the pockets open. I thought maybe this was a quality control issue? When I received my wheat colored vest, no problem with the sizing but had the same issue with the pockets but these were almost completely sewed shut with just a finger hole opening. I guess they didn't want us to use the pockets? Did anyone else have this problem?

I really don't like this vest. The fit was true to size, but fabric was thick and hot and made you look twice your size. The length was good. Sorry, had to return it, not something I would ever buy and keep.

I really like this vest. It is nice material and the fit is flattering. I bought my usual size and it fits true to size. it is a substantial material and very soft.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DebDeth My new favorite vest!
This vest is so soft and comfortable! And it curves to your body just enough! I normally wear small but I ordered XS in this vest and it fits perfectly.
