A203345 - Liz Claiborne New York Ponte Knit Notch Collar Blazer
Great Quality Jacket
I purchased this blazer in black and it fits perfectly. The weight of the fabric is wonderful for an autumn afternoon. I've always loved Liz Claiborne clothing.
Great Slimming Blazer
I'm curvy/busty (40C) and ordered the Black in XL, it fits like a dream-no tugging across the chest...almost a minimizing effect...hooray! Non-constricting, and quality ponte knit makes it all day wearable. I deducted 1 star as I feel it could have been made to perfection with the addition of removable lightweight shoulder pads. I'm 5'4" and like I say "curvy" and yet somehow it hides my flaws and the sleeve length & bumm length was perfect. I would love to have more colors available...dk grey, pine green, burgundy. We need more jackets like these for women like me that need that jacket persona for a professional appearance at all times on the job. Thanks LCNY and QVC!
FAB MEETS FUNCTION!
Great with jeans or dress it up. Very versatile, has a tailored look and washes well. Who could ask for anything more? :0)
Better than expected
I ordered this jacket in the brown and the quality and fit are much, much better than I expected. It washed up beautifully too. This jacket gave me a nice shape, not boxy at all.
By the way, when we use the word "too" to mean "also", it is written with 2 "O's", not one. I had the strictest English teacher in school and she would not tolerate poor grammar.
sleeves too long
Love the weight of the material but the sleeves where 6 inches too long and I have average length arms. Since the jacket is unlined the front facings tended to turn out when wearing it.
I received this wonderful blazer in the mail yesterday. Wow! I am absolutely in love with it. It is a nice, soft blazer that would look good either with jeans or dressed up. It has that kind of versatility to fit into a wardrobe in many ways. The camel color is more stunning in person than on tv. I sized up one from my normal size and I'm glad I did. It fits perfectly.
Love! Love! Love!
I just received this & have worn it several times already. You can dress it up for the office or just throw it over a t-shirt for a more casual look. It's as comfy as a sweatshirt but has a nice tailored look to it. My 20-something coworker who wears younger styles even asked me where I got it. Just love this jacket!
Didn't like the shade of Brown
Great fit and nice jacket but I didn't care for the shade/color of Brown. It was a red brown (now I'll know for future purchases that Acorn Brown in the Liz Claiborne line doesn't work for me). Wasn't the most flattering shade of brown for me. Back to QVC.
This jacket fit my needs. I wanted a casual, lightweight jacket that I could put on over a t-shirt and jeans. It can easily be dressed up with a button down white shirt for a more formal look, or belted with something sparkly underneath for a funky, going-out style. I found the quality to be good and the style to be slightly more boxy than fitted. The fit was good for me (size small), and the sleeve length is fine. I'm 5'7", about 125 lbs. I know with the Liz Claiborne brand, this jacket will hold up for a long time and be a classic in my wardrobe.
I am really surprised by the negative reviews on this jacket. I probably wouldn't have ordered this if I had seen the reviews beforehand. I think this jacket has a very flattering shape to it. I liked it so much I came back for a second color. The fabric is a very nice medium weight. I see others have negatively commented on the wear of the fabric. I guess I will have to see how that works out for me. The only negative comment I have is the sleeve length is way too long. I have very long arms and the sleeves still came halfway down my hand. That really drives me crazy, but was easily remedied with a little hollywood fashion tape. I find that the sleeve length on most of QVC's fashions are too long.
I've read most of the reviews...odd how some women found that this jacket runs large and others thought it ran small. For me. my normal size med, ran too large....but I am one of those people that is inbetween a med and a small in a lot of things. I live in florda and this jacket will be perfect for winters here. I am returning this one in exchange for a small. I am hoping the small has a more fitted appearance.
Seams pucker and flimsy material are my two biggest complaints. Not at all like my other LC clothes. Cheaply made.
