Quacker Factory Golden Beaded Jacket
Wanted To Love It
I purchased this top in the beige size small which states that it is a 42" bust in the actual garment measurements. Since I grew a bust in my 40's, this became a big factor and the largest part on me. In addition I have no defined waist, another sizing issue. Well the top is beautiful. That being said it was too snug across the bust to wear as a shirt since it gapped a bit between the buttons. I actually measured the bust and it was only 41". Then, being fitted, it was very snug in the waist for me. The material was a bit heavier than I would like for a shirt even if it had fit and a bit light for a jacket (at least in Pennsylvania) and too much money to wear over a tank or cami. I couldn't decide HOW I would wear it and thought it cost too much to try the next size up, especially with the non-refundable return shipping cost. If you buy it, size UP one size in my opinion.
I've had to replace my previous QF jacket because I've lost 32 lbs and my jacket was too big. This is a wonderful replacement. The cut of the jacket is comfortable to wear and the embellishments are nice. The weight is perfect for Atlanta and, yes, it's not a heavy jacket. I get compliments on the jacket every time I wear it. Nice buy.
Runs 2 sizes too big
It is a fantastic jacket - love the weight and beading BUT my normal size Large AND Medium are HUGE. Have to try the small now.....Sizes are wacky.
First review I felt I had to do. So disappointed in jacket!! Material is like a thin denim shirt not a jacket.
just right in size and color, love the beading
I have two.
This jacket is just awesome! Great datail and the fit is perfect! I love the khaki color and the design is just beautiful! I ordered a small so I could wear it over my bulkier sweaters and it will still look great on me in the spring!
I just received this jacket in the Khaki color. It is stunning. I'm not normally one for beading, etc. but this jacket caught my eye because of the khaki color as one usually sees this type of jacket in black or denim. If you are looking for a different jacket that is gorgeous than this is the one for you. As I live on the East Coast I won't be able to wear it until the Spring but can tell you that it is a jacket that I'll wear a lot. In fact, I'll be taking it to France with me this Spring. I ordered a 1x and usually fluctuate between that size and an 18. The jacket fits perfectly and I can even wear a long sleeve sweater (not too heavy or bulky) under it. Ladies, if you want to be shiek, elegant and have a different jacket than this is the one for you. It is a very good quality and as I'm 5ft 8" is stops below the waistline. Don't miss out on this one.
Love this; if not for the awful odor would be 5*
This is a fabulous looking jacket - lightweight and perfect for Florida as a cover up! Design is terrific and so is the construction.
I have other Quaker Factory items and they are wonderful quality.
BUT this jacket in denim blue came out of the plastic bag with the most awful odor. I hung it outside to try and air it out. When that didn't help - it stunk up my whole closet - I tried washing it in Woolite to get rid of the odor. After 2 washing and airings it still stink. So I will be sending this back.
I am afraid to re-order since I am not sure if any others have had this issue. HELP!!! Any suggestions to get the odor out would be appreciated.
This jacket is beautiful! Fits great! Great purchase.
I love it!
This jacket is more like a denim shirt, but it is beautiful. I do love it and have gotten many compliments. It is well made and of good quality. I usually wear a size 10 and got the medium. It is a little large but not too much. It is very comfortable to wear. I will being buying more Quacker Factory.
Gold Pearls are Dull
Loved the shade of purple. However, the gold pearls just didn't do it for me. They are dull looking. Jacket is going back.
The Khaki is beautiful love the beading and fit perfect.
