Bradley by Bradley Bayou Suede Jacket with Seaming Detail
Love this jacket!
Even though I normally wear a 16-18/XL in the store, I ordered it according to the QVC size chart, and ordered a large. It fits me perfect. I got the apple green and there are so many accessories out there now in that color (especially with green and purple). Every time I wear it, I get many compliments. The seaming and cute pleated peplum is very flattering. The soutache braid in the lining is a nice designer touch.
This jacket is so beautiful, and outside of the sizing . . . . . . it could be perfect. I'm an 8-10 and ordered the Medium and it was swimming on me . . . . HUGE!!! I just returned it and ordered a small and am thinking that might be too big as well. Oh well, it's worth the try.
This is my third Bradley jacket. As a new QVC customer, I was smitten with his jackets the minute I discovered them on the site. Not only for the unique styles, but the lovely colors - no drab black, brown, grey. I didn't know if this one would be attractive on me, but it is absolutely lovely. And I am blown away by the beautiful lining and trademark name in the back. I am going to be going to the poorhouse since I ordered so many of his jackets. But for these prices, it'll set me up with nice styles for a long long time. When I wear a Bradley jacket, I feel creative and vibrant - like I'm wearing a work of art. Beautiful, simply beautiful!
Vanity sizing gone Wild!
This jacket has beautiful detail and color (I got the purple), but it so very oddly sized. I am an 10-12 very consistently, and I ordered a Medium. It is HUGE. Strangely the shoulders are the perfect width, and I have narrow shoulders. However, the arms are 5 INCHES too long, and I am swimming in the rest of it, which makes a very chic jacket look extremely dowdy. I am upset that I have to pay return shipping on this, and am considering calling customer service.
Nice but not for me
This was a nice well made jacket. It hit me at the widest part of my hips, so it wasn't for me. I do have very curvy hips.
I GAVE THIS JACKET A 4 STAR RATING ONLY BECAUSE IT DIDN'T COME IN PETITE SIZES!! OTHERWISE, THE JACKET IS A BEAUTIFUL BUD GREEN COLOR AND FLATTERS THE BODY. I WOULD PURCHASE THIS JACKET IN ANOTHER COLOR IF I WEREN'T "BUDGET RESTRICTED." VERY WELL MADE.
Great looking purple suede jacket but the sizing is off. I am a size 14 and initially ordered the large which was way too big. I exchanged it for a medium and that was too snug across the bust/shoulders :( Now I'm out 2 return shipping fees, not happy about that. What a disappointment! I wish QVC and their designers would work on sizing/fit issues, this happens more than it should.
GORGEOUS IN GREEN!!
This jacket is stunning. I don't wear much suede but couldn't resist this in the apple green (size medium). It is absolutely beautiful. Love the fit and the little pleats/peplum. Actually makes my tall, thin frame look shapely!! Now I'm going back for the grape color. Just can't get enough of Bradley!!!
Runs true to size as I am usually between a large and X large in BB coats and the large had plenty of room. The color is a beautiful bright red. So tempted to get another color. Don't hesitate on this one, a keeper.Well worth every penny and I got it on sale.
Terrible odor made jacket unwearable
I have other Bradley Bayou leather jackets that are excellent quality and style. So I expected the same value in this jacket. But when it arrived and I opened the box I could not believe the terrible odor from the jacket. I liked the look of it and wanted to keep it so I hung it out on a hanger in the hallway to "air out" for two days. Finally, my husband asked me to return it because he said the odor made him sick and spread a noxious smell throughout the hall. I knew he was right and I couldn't even stand the bad odor long enough to try on the jacket for fit. I was relieved to return the jacket and get the smell out of my home. I was afraid of the same problem with a new one so did not re-order it. Have no idea what caused this. So beware.
BEAUTIFUL SUEDE JACKET BUT INCONSISTANT SIZING
I BOUGHT THIS JACKET IN THREE COLORS...BLUE, GREEN AND RED. THE COLORS ARE GORGEOUS AND THE SUEDE IS BUTTER SOFT, BUT EACH ONE FITS DIFFERENTLY. THE BLUE ONE IS PERFECT, THE GREEN IS A LITTLE SNUG AND THE RED ONE MUST BE LABELLED WRONG BECAUSE IT IS AT LEAST 4 INCHES SMALLER THAN THE OTHER TWO. I AM EXCHANGING THE TWO THAT DON'T FIT, HOPING TO GET THE SAME SIZE BUT WITH THE CORRECT MEASUREMENTS.
I got this in purple and I love this jacket. I happen to look good in dark purple, so this fit the bill. My friend hates purple, but must admit this jacket is a beauty. The fit is true to size.
