Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Notch Collar Blazer with Front Pockets
Great Fabric, Nice Weight
I have this jacket in red, blue and white and love them all. The weight of these are so comfortable, unlike any jacket I own. Often blazers are heavy, or too lightweight, or they irritate your skin, but you can work all day in this and forget you have it on! The button detailing is nice and I find myself reaching for these jackets more than any others I own. Louis also did, a while back, a beautiful jacket in both black and pink with pearl detailing down the front and sides and again, the weight and style of this was exceptional. Very stylish accessorizing at a most affordable price.
I was overwhelmed with the reviews so I took the plunge and bought this Jacket and matching skirt in navy because I wanted a basic color. I'm satisfied but I do not feel that all the whoopala is justified. This is a nice jacket and skirt for the money. But not good enough for all the fuss. It's okay for the money.
OMG Louis! I didn't see this when it was first aired and QVC is now totally out of the size large. Looking at the jacket on models shows that you've hit a home-run again. They look sleek and so sophisticated. You must bring this back in the large in all the colors. I absolutely need them!!!
OMG this looks fantastic
I saw this on the video on line and kept comming back until my size showed up. I'm a 10-12, closer to the 12 and I ordered a Medium Navy. I got it yesterday and it is fantastic. It hangs beautifully, and looks great. I can't wait to wear it with jeans, or white pants. Now I want to buy the red and the white ones. Bring them back QVC. Incredible. Adds a bit of class to anything I wear with it.
CLASSIC!! PLEASE REORDER, MATCHING SKIRT TOO!
From the dates of the first reviews, I missed this jacket & matching skirt because I was on vacation! Really a shame because sizes, XL in particular, & navy & ivory are gone! I was able to I purchase an ivory jacket in 1X & will have it altered, but no skirt to make a suit. No navy @ all! I was able to purchase the jacket & skirt in red. If a navy in the jacket & skirt come back in XL or even 1X, I would purchase & pay to have altered.
This jacket is a perfect classic! I don't think I saw slacks offered, but they would be wonderful.
This line is always a winner!!
I got this one in Red and Navy on the first day Louis showed it. I always have to order a large and take it to my dressmaker to take it in. Medium is just a little too tight on me. when she finished with the jackets they fit me to a T and I was sorry I did not get the Ivory. I kept checking every day for an Ivory in large and finally got one. Can't wait to get it and take to my dressmaker.
Material is great, barely wrinkles and travels well. The Red is a true red-not blue red and great color for winter or summer.
Bring back this blazer, please!
I ordered the matching skirt in early February and -- would you believe -- it was finally mailed to me today (3-31-12)! Now, of course, I want the matching blazer (ivory), but it is no longer available. Please, Louis, bring back this jacket that so many reviewers are raving about!
I ordered this in all three colors: Red, Navy, Ivory. The fit of this blazer is phenomenal. It is not a boxy jacket. The tailoring details in the collor, patch pockets, and the buttons add interest but keep it a classic wardrobe staple. The crepe fabric drapes beautifuly. It makes a great suit with the matching skirt (A221814) but is fine on its own with pants or jeans.
Please bring it back in more colors.
This crepe material is fantastic and I like that the jacket is lightly lined. The designer 'L' buttons add a nice touch to the jacket and you should order your regular Linea size. The red is a true red and the navy, a dark blue. The V neck collar is classic as is the handkerchief pocket. The sleeves were the proper length on me and I intend to wear this with many of Louis' perfectly pink tops and his navy prints. Please reorder this in all 3 colors and add perfectly pink to the roster as well as espresso brown for fall. Except for a few package wrinkles which easily steamed out, there were no other problems. All buttons were sewn properly and the pockets on the sides were sewn shut and opened with an embroidery scissor. This is an essential for any woman's wardrobe.
The blazer is pretty. I love the color of the red. The workmanship and the design is great, but the fabric is of poor quaity and I was disappointed in this. Because of this I am returning the jacket.
Lewis, your designs are so pretty. I would pay a little more for better quality in the fabric.
Lewis, I have several pieces of your clothes, looking forward to future purchases.
I waited for reviews before ordering and was thrilled when one popped back in stock. I got the red and the color is perfect. The fit and tailoring is spot on. It truly looks like it was made for me. Stay true to size and enjoy this beauty! Can you tell I LOVE it!?!!
Too Good To Be True?
Right before the Linea show in late February, I noticed a size M navy blazer popped into stock. I had been kicking myself for not ordering when this was 1st presented. Was this too good to be true? My blazer arrived today and it looked fine as I took it out....all buttons well sewn, no strange smells, etc. I tried it on and it fit like it was made just for me.....then I turned and looked at the back in the mirror and noticed that the center back did not hang straight. It looked like it was just pressed wrong, yet I could tell it was more than that. I checked the lining and the back was not sewn to the lining, there was no defect in the fabric itself, so I decided I had nothiing to lose and I gently kept prying at the lining and the back of the fabric. After a gentle tug, I heard a thread snap and voila, back of jacket is now perfect! No defect anywhere, must have just been a loose thread that got caught up. All ended well and I have a navy blazer that I LOVE!
