A216427 - M by Marc Bouwer Faux Leather Vest with Stud Detail
Love this vest!!!!!
I just received this today in the brown. I love it so much I just ordered the grey before they are gone. On clearance this is great! I am a size 4 and normally wear an XS in QVC size (sometimes even XXS). I ordered the Small and it fits good. The XS's were gone and I was afraid the XXS would be too snug. I probably would've worn the XS, but since they are gone, the Small fit great, also! It's generous either way. I love an edgy look and have been looking for a leather vest and just happened to see this on .com. So glad I found this. The faux leather looks just as good as leather. I'm not sure why any negative reviews on the look of this piece. Love! Marc, please bring back in black next time. I will get that, also!
Fun, Cute....Nice Fit...
I didn't really expect much from this vest, I was looking for a vest, but not really a fake leather item. However, this vest can almost pass for real leather, particularly if you don't hang out with leather snobs...and the faux leather is now sort of chic anyhow. The positives, it fits really well, is made really well, the color is nice (brown), it is very soft, and the lining is cute. It has an edge without being too much for a middle-aged gal like myself. I got the medium and am probably around a size 10 on top, 36B. It fit too perfection and zipped up without looking forced or strained. The negatives...$50 is pricey for this item. I would not have bought it at the original price and probably would not have paid $50 if I saw it in a store, however, I like it enough I probably won't ship it back. If you don't like a glossier leather look, this may not be for you. It has a sheen, but it doesn't scream plastic. Many fine leathers have a similar sheen, depends on how they are finished.
The cut/style of this vest is awesome! Unfortunately, I have to agree with the reviewer who said it looks absolutely too faux. I love leather and wear it as often as I can (and will continue to do so.) This vest is entirely too shiny and plastic-y looking. I got it in gray and maybe it looks better in the other colors.
I ordered this in gray - they only had a xxs I am normally a xs and the fit is snug but it looks great that way- I have it zipped up over a white t and jeans - and it is very flattering on- I want to layer this over a dressy blouse - this is how it was presented on air- I just need to see what blouse would go best- I ordered the grey because I typically go to brown or black and it is different- I think this is very well done.
GREAT FAKE at an even GREATER Price
I will be the envy of all my PLUS Size (and NOT) friends and relatives with this vest; this is a fabulous faux....and I intend to pair it with the real thing (suede jacket) as well; I am thinking about buying more for Christmas (2012) gifts. This is a winner!
I find this vest extremely nice. I was concerned about the fit and feel of it. It fits perfectly and does feel like leather. The fit is amazing.
The minute I laid eyes on this I was so excited! Then I put it on and almost fell over! The thoughtful design, quality construction and faux leather are perfection! Even better, my hubby went wild when he saw this on me from the minute he saw it! This first thing he said was it was such a flattering & stylish look! This is my first Marc Bouwer item and I will definitely buy more with confidence! Thank you!
LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE LEATHER! THIS IS A GREAT VEST!
I don't have any marc bouwer, this is my first piece and i am SO THRILLED! it looks EXACTLY like leather, my dog grabbed it (likes to grab leather!). Seriously, I am going to order the brown, too. I ALSO WISH THIS CAME IN BLACK. I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW COOL THIS VEST IS WITH ALL OF THE ZIPPER AND STUD DETAIL!!!!
This is a beautiful vest. I have it in gray in my regular size and it fits perfectly. The only problem is that it smells awful. I have had it for a while now and the stink does not go away.
Marc Bouwer out did himself again. It's difficult to believe that the vests are made of faux leather. The fit and the quality are perfect.
LOVE THIS VEST
I bought two of these (S and XS) not knowing what size I might want and would send one back. Bought the grey and the brown. Well wouldn't you know it....they BOTH worked fine as the sizes weren't all that much different. I decided that the s would work for an underneath top that was a little larger or chunkier (sweater) and the xs would be for lightweight blouse in the warmer weather or when I'd like to be a little sexy out on the town.
AS for the smell, they do have a little odor at first, but so does leather! It goes away and my daughter the style maven could NOT tell the different between the feel of this and real leather. I say buy it....you'll love it! BTW I'm 5'5"T, 133lbs with 35"bust and a fairly long torso. Am small across the shoulders and most things gape under the arms. NOT THIS VEST!
SOOOO looks Real
This vest was absolutely gorgeous.... When received however I noticed a very unpleasant smell...I figured that would go away if I left it out...I tried it on and unfortunetely it was damaged a hole in the left pocket...I still would have kept this because it looked so real it looked better than real... I had to return due to the damaged goods... I would ask Mr. Bouwer to think of shorter people when making fitted bottoms on a vest, jacket, ect... When you are petite it comes down longer so becomes tighter...Loved it though
