Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Double Breasted Jacket with Button Detail
nice multi-purpose jacket
I bought the pink which is a nice color. The jacket can be worn as outer wear or as a blazer if you keep it unbuttoned. I do wish the buttons were not quite so large and that the lining was sewn in a bit better--I noticed that it tends to sometimes stick out of the bottom of the sleeves and hem. That is why I did not give it 5 stars. All in all, a good purchase. I wish QVC would give this designer a lot more air-time and a bigger line. He is awesome! I have recently "found" him and I think he is far superior to a lot of the other lines that get so much air time (Susan Graver, Women with Control, Quacker Factory)
Sizing--runs a bit large except for the sleeves, they were the perfect length.
Just not for me
It was a lovely jacket, well made, but not long enough for me. Also I think since I am a plus size, I should have chosen the khaki as on me that was a LOT of pink!!! Still, Khaki or not, it just didn't fit correctly as to length and it's a shame as it was a pretty jacket. I wish a person could just get a plain windbreaker, which is really what I am trying to buy, but it seems such things are not to be had anymore.
I usually wear a large, ordered large in orange. It was too big and too bright for me. I ordered the ivory in medium and it was perfect. The ivory may not be a bright white but when you get it you'll see it's white. Not as ivory as I thought it would be. I love it however. The bright orange is going back. It's the color of those cones they put on the road. I think it's great if you can pull off bright colors...just not for me. The fabric is soft and it's fully lined. It does wrinkle but I love the feel of it so I'll throw it in the dryer or give it a press if needed. If you don't want to do this better pick something else. The fit was perfect for me and I feel good in it. All in all, as long as you consider the size, color and need for pressing from time to time it's a 5 star coat.
Perfect Spring Jacket!
This jacket fit like it was tailored just for me! I am a 1x in Linea jackets. Bought the 1x and it's perfection! The pink is beautiful and will bring a nice pop of color to my Spring wardrobe! Perfectly weighted material for California, lovely details as always for Louis Dell'Olio and a very nice silk like lining that was an indulgent surprise! I'm a Spring Princess :-) Thank you Louis and thank you QVC - I love that I can buy this wonderful designer's clothes from you at a working girls price!
Loved the Jacket, but...
The sleeves were way too long on me and to have kept the jacket, would have meant cutting off the tabs on the lower sleeves. I ordered the pink and it is the most beautiful shade. However, I really hated to send it back, but at the price of having to pay to have the sleeves altered, would have cost me a lot more money. I could not justify the added expense, so sadly sent it back. It is a beautiful jacket though, extremely well made, with beautiful lining, but just not for me.
I just received my Tangerine Jacket in Large. When I ordered I was debating if I should size down or not since most reviews said to do so....I'm glad I did NOT. It fits just right! Sleeves are the right length, coming down to my wrists. I'm 5'8" with an apple shaped body. The swing is nicely done, not too big so you don't look like wearing a tent. Enough to hide my stomach and look stylish. I will be able to wear a thin long sleeve Denim & Company t-shirt under this which makes it pretty much a 3 season jacket. Love the bright Tangerine color, looks like it was 'plucked' right of a tree on a sunny day. I think I will be getting a lot of wear out of it.... :-)
Very Nice . . . but
I ordered two colors and hoped to choose. I also sized down one size because of the extra volume at the bottom. The colors chino and tangerine were perfect as was the softness of the fabric. However, I had to return them because the upper arm was too tight while wearing a t-shirt underneath. I'm returning them the next day and VERY reluctantly.
A Go To !
Lovely A line jacket with a swing! I got the tan and ivory,l am 5"4, full busted,leave to Louis to make this jacket just for me!:-) Looks great open or closed,I did size down because of the "swing".Love your designs,enjoy watching you and your lovely wife,I wish q.v.c. would offer more of your shows!! Thank you again..
SO PRETTY IN PINK
I AM IN LOVE WITH MY JACKET! IT IS A CLASS ACT. THERE IS A BIT OF A "SWING' TO THE BACK, AND FITS WELL IN THE BODY TOO....COZY AND WELL-CONSTRUCTED. AT FIRST I STRUGGLED WITH THE SIZING (AS I USUALLY DO). I NORMALLY TAKE AN XXS IN QVC SIZING, BUT THE XXS WAS TOO SHORT ON ME IN THE SLEEVE LENGTH AS WELL AS IN THE JACKET. I COULD HAVE PULED IT OFF, BUT IT WASN'T MY SIZE. I SIZED UO TO THE XS AND IT WAS PERFECTO! IF U NEED SIZE HELP, I AM 5'7" AND 122 LBS, AND BUST IS 34C. I HAVE LONG EXTREMITIES, AND THE XS FITS SO WELL. IT SHOULD HAVESOME EXTRA ROOM IN THE BACK SICNE IT HAS A SWING TYPE DETAIL, BUT THE FRONT IS SLIMMING. I LOVE THE DETAIL EVERYWHERE THROUGHOUT THE PIECE....EVEN AT THE SLEEVE! MY FAVORITE PART IS THE COLOR SINCE I LOVE BEING SUCH A GIRLY-GIRL...PINK PEONY!! EVEN A RIANY DAY FEELS LIKE SUNSHINE WHEN I AM PRETTY IN PINK IN MY PINK PEONY DETAILED, AND LADY-LIKE JACKET. LOUIS DELL'OLIO NAILED THIS JACKET! IT IS MY FAV AND I HAVE A GAZILLION JACKETS. I OWN SO MANY TRENCH COATS WHICH I HAVE COLLECTED AND NOW CAPE TYPE JACKETS. THIS BEAUTIFUL JACKET IS SUCH A CLASS ACT WAS A GREAT PURCHASE I AM PROUD OF. IT'S COMFY AND CLASSY, TOO. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE SPRING SO I CAN PULL THIS BEAUTY BACK OUT.I FEEL LIKE SUCH A PRINCESS IN MY PRETTY PINK JACKET. THANK YOU TO THE AMAZING DESIGNER LOUIS D. AND TO MY FAV. STORE IN THE WORLD....QVC!!
I bought the ivory and khaki and they are stunning! But I should have ordered one size down because they are VERY full under the arms. The swing in the back gives you enough fullness. I'm going to keep them and just have them tailored. They are WORTH it!
Check the sizing
I ordered a medium in the ivory. I normally wear medium in Linea jackets but this one was overwhelming on me. I tried a small and it fit like a medium normally would. The ivory is a nice color and I liked that it did not have gold or silver buttons so it does not limit my jewelry metal selections.
So flattering on!!!!! I am 5' and a little hippy and this flatters so much...doesn't look like your wearing a tent. I ordered a small and the front of the coat fits great you see a slight flair when you turn around just enough to hide what we all need to hide....
