Susan Graver Stretch Twill Jacket with Cutout Detail & Solid Shell
The tee shirt is garbage. However, I was very pleased with the jacket. It is a very tailored look. The material is a little rough but once I steam out the wrinkles it will be great for work with a nice bright top underneath. Wish there were more cutouts that were open, but will look nice with a little neon tank under. I bought the black and am very happy with it. 5 stars if the tee shirt was any good. Glad I didn't pay full price or I'd be very disappointed.
SMELLS LIKE FISH
I just received this jacket and it says wash before wearing??????? Did everyone else do this, as if it needs returned, is that okay?? ....THERE is the most foul smell and I took it out and hung it in my room, and when I came upstairs, the hallway and room smelled like a fish market...what the heck, I have a myriad of Susans clothes and NEVER EVER have they smelled....be careful!! would have rated 5 stars, fish takes it down to 2
I am in total disgust with this item! Washed on gentile and hung to dry, well each cutout is frayed and not sewn proper plus it's cut through to the front of jacket, only noticed after laundering when fibers frayed! Inferior fabric! The shell runs smaller then any of Susan's other clothing. I will be sending back, but, not soon enough! This set doesn't deserve even one star!
I ordered this in the gold/yellow color and like it, I would say though for this Susan Graver item go a size up. I generally wear a small in most of her clothes but this one runs a little smaller, more tight fitting. Very nice though, I like it.
I have been buying Susan Graver for years (still have peachskin pants - love them!) but this jacket is WAY too poorly made regarding the cut-outs in the jacket. The finishing stitching around the "holes" comes off and leaves a fuzzy look around each hole. Cannot believe this. I returned two colors I had intended to give to my daughter since she has to dress professionally in her job. I also ordered the topaz for myself. Before my daughter could pick up her gifts, I washed and dried mine (as instructions say). Good thing I did. The finishing stitching around the holes practically came off and made each hole look bigger. Terrible job!! I have Bob Mackie's cut-out jackets. His are beautifully finished and last forever. Susan, I am really disappointed.
Do not wait if your size is still available. The jacket is a not light weight. the cut outs are so cool. The sleeves are a little long so I roll them up and the slits on the bottom of the sleeves are strange.
Nice Duo Except For Smell!
I received the blue duo and it fits good. I was a little worried about the length of the sleeves, but they were not too long. However, when I took them out of the bag, there was a horrible smell. I did read other reviews that said the same thing. I couldn't believe it;I never smelled clothes like that. I am washing them right now;hopefully the smell will disappear.
very good duo
I am so pleased. The material is very comfortable. It stretches and goes back to make for a good fit all the time. The shell is just right, length and fit. The jacket is comfortable. I wore it all day. I drove for about an hour. When I stopped and got out of the car, I was as unwrinkled as I was when I first put it on.
I am just now getting around to writing a review on this jacket after purchasing it well over a year ago. I got it in tan in my normal XS Susan Graver size. Let me say right off, I get compliments every single time I wear it. The tan goes with so many things I own: over summer dresses, skirts, jeans, etc. That said, there are a few things I'm not wild about. The sleeves are wide at the cuff area, which makes rolling them a challenge. I may look at adding some velcro, since I would never wear the jacket with the sleeves all the way down. Also, I'm not crazy about the shell and I don't think I've ever worn it. So even with all that, I would buy this again. There are some weeks I could wear it every single day to work with different outfits. I'm seriously considering ordering another.
Love stretch pockets colors but it wrinkles eaisy
I have 3 of this jackets. materiel was not what I was excepting heavier than I would thought.. Have it in dark blue and topaz in xl which are really almost to big to wear. have good extra 4 to 5" across the chest. order the coral in Large and it way to tight. But I get lots of compliments on this jackets.
things I Love about the jacket
1.and 2 Stretch material and Pockets are 2 of my most have in blazer / jackets ( I show my dogs and this are most) stretch is so much more comfortable to move and bend in.
3. lots of Colors besides dark colors black navy and gray
4.professional looking , dressy and pretty at the same time.
what I don't like
jacket wrinkles so it not good to travel with and pain to deal with
sizing off on the ones I order. not sure why
if you get one to fit and can live with the wrinkling then you will love this set
attractive camel jacket and top
Like the color, buttery light camel, the soft material and the style of the jacket- very attractive and light enough to wear now and into early fall.The shell is a nice plus and of course will wear alone and with other things.Gave three stars only because of opening on sleeves. Don't like it., can't turn back to make a cuff because it's not lined.
WHAT is the purpose of opening up the sleeves?
Will now have to have sewn closed by tailor.
I was looking forward to this set but the quality was just not what I expected. Looked cheap to me. The topaz was a little bright for my taste.
