George Simonton Pucker Knit Dolman Sleeve Cocoon Bolero
I have yet to purchase anything from George Simonton that I didn't love and this is no exception. Simonton designs for WOMEN. This bolero sits beautifully on the body and covers the arms to the elbow and is lightweight. Very flattering.
BOUGHT THE TEAL AND GREY
THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL . GIVE MORE COVERAGE THAN THE SMALLER TYPE SHRUGS. QUALITY MATERIALS LOVE THEM...
one of the nicest bolero i have received...it covers a longer body frame and is well made.....just loving this product...more colors please , george
I mostly like this jacket. Love the style, I wear xl and size is dead on. It's made nicely but I'm not a big fan of the crinkle material, never was so its not that this one is the reason. Would love it if he'd make one in something else cause its a nice thing to throw over sleeveless tops ESP as I'm not a fan of showing my upper arms so don't wear them. Now I will. It is a little pricey for the material but it is made by a big designer so I can forgive that. And it is lined. You have to play with the collar a little so it doesn't make you look a bit round shouldered but that is easily done.
a beautiful basic
this cocoon is such a great basic to go with many things. it fit well in my regular size with no issues. i bought it in the black to go with everything, but will end up getting another color. i would love to see this in white and ivory. it is just the right weight for spring and summer and fall. you can even use this in the winter. i love the detailing on the body and the fit and drape are superb. definitely get more than one.
Design Flaw in neck of Bolero
Personally I love, love and love Mr. Simonton's clothing......excellent design and normally outstanding craftmanship. But, I ordered this bolero jacket in different colors and in my usual size. The sizing was correct but the neckline had issues. The fabric is heavy and the neckline kept rolling backwards ....... thus showing the inside of the fabric. The interior was unfinished. What you were greeting people with was unfinished work. I am sorry but the boleros had the same issue and they were returned. I hope this helps with your ordering decision. Again, George's work is normally outstanding......I will be returning for more of his clothing ......that is a definite for me.
Better than a shawl. It stays on without falling off your shoulders. Ordered black. Thinking of buying another color, but price alittle high!!
Not up to Simonton standards.
My first real dissappointment. I ordered an XL, it is 2 sizes too large. Fabric is not to my taste.
Different and Fabulous
I have this in the deep rose. I really didn't know what to expect since the Q only shows clothes on skinny models most of the time. However I had faith in George so ordered it in the Large. . It is absolutely wonderful. Forget the shrugs and scarves that hide your arms, this is the best ever. It falls down in the back , for me the bottom of my bottom, and the arms are very flattering on. I wish the rose color I bought was a bit brighter but this top is so fab, I'll love it as it is. Thank you once again George! I adore you.
