Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Notch Collar Blazer with Front Pockets
Not what I expected
I need a navy blazer and was hopeful this would work for me. The size large seemed to be true to size which I appreciated. But...... the sleeves were very very long, and because of the lining couldn't be folded back. I didn't care for the fabric either. This might suit someone who was taller and didn't want a more polished fabric as I was hoping for. As always with Louis, his quality was not disappointing.
I saw this blazer offered as a lunchtime special and the value was a steal, so I ordered it in Navy! It's a beautiful color (not too dark) and the lines are just so crisp and clean. Really a great purchase and a nice addition to my work wardrobe. I may have to order another color at this cost!!
Best Fitting Blazer! Excellent!!!
This is my first Linea purchase and I absolutely love it! I am 5ft. 4, with a 38 DD bust. I have short arms and have a hard time finding suits and blazers that fit, don't look boxy, etc. this one in Pewter is just perfect! I ordered the Medium when it was a Lunchtime Special. So glad I have the Aqua on Waitlist. My only regret is that I didn't order the Navy one as well! I will be back for more! I wonder what took me so long to try this brand!
OMG-LOVE this Blazer!
Fits me like a dream with classic styling, but not frumpy at all. It has fresh, clean and classic lines. I am tall and not as skinny as I once was but I have broad shoulders and well-defined waist. This blazer fits, is not tight, is not loose, defines the body and will go with just about everything. I got the ivory and I have just ordered on waitlist the navy, which I hope comes in because I can wear it year-round.
This is my second notch collar blazer from Louis Dell'Olio. I paid the featured price for #1`so I was thrilled to get #2 on the Lunch specials. The navy is very dark as Louis said and I am glad it has gold buttons becaue I am a gold-lovin girl.
Not for me
Very disappointed in this purchase. I have another similar jacket from LDO's line in navy blue, but this one does not work for me at all. Color is pretty, I thought it could be good for spring but the jacket made me look frumpy and old. I know Louis makes very classically-cut clothes but this is for very old ladies, and I do not consider myself one at 61 ! Sending it back. Sorry Louis.
When Louis first brought Linea to QVC, probably 15 years ago, he had a TSV, which was a washable suede and knit shawl collar jacket in several colors. I still own and wear that jacket.
Louis Dell'Olio always creates flattering, elegant, classic designs of superior quality. I know I always feel beautiful wearing Louis' clothing. I now own every color in this blazer.
P.S. All the buttons were intact - even the "extra" button on the inside.
I am such a Linea fan! Louis Dell'Olio is one of my favorite designers as his style is classic and timeless but excellently constructed with the most stunning, professional fabrics. The fit is wonderful, even though I'm slightly petite. Very flattering fit. I purchased the pewter color and feel it will work year round as it is versatile and not very heavy. It is fully lined which keeps the jacket well fitting for years to come. I'm so happy with this and will wear to work for business meetings. With the right jewelry and understated fashions the jacket will make a nice statement and I'm sure to be noticed in a positive way. Thank you Louis!
Very nice blazer
I love the fit and the material. It looks much more expensive and, therefore a very
good buy with the easy pay options. I would like information on the matching pants
that could be ordered that match the color ordered. I love the dark blue, but it is very
hard to match with another shade of dark blue. Possibly that could be included in the
order as a shopper might want to get a matching coordinated item when they receive it.
There is nothing like a crisp new ivory blazer which will work so well over dresses, skirts or pants. You can see and feel the quality of this blazer and the tailoring is perfect.
Very Flattering--Please Keep!
This jacket is very flattering. I am a 1x and fifty, the structured fit through the shoulders and lovely buttons work very well! Have paid three times as much for blazers which do not work as well for me. Would love more colors!
This is a well made basic blazer. What disappointed me was the boxy unattractive style with shoulders that extended beyond my shoulders and the stiff heavy material which did look cheap to me. It is not a blazer that I would want to wear because it doesn't feel or look good on me.
