Kelly by Clinton Kelly 3/4 Sleeve Ponte Blazer w/Print Lining
excellent blazer, excellent price
In QVC blazers/jackets I most often need XS,occasionally XXS. According to the garment measurements (the 'click here' chart) for this item, I decided to try the Small. It worked -- perfect fit, perfect look. This one's definitely for you if you like jackets/blazers that let you move freely, feel comfortable, yet look polished and pulled together. It's cut and finished as beautifully as any more-traditional -- and often much more expensive -- blazer would be. The striped lining (instead of print or solid or none at all) is subtle and classic-classy. Being only 5-1 I'm always partial to 3/4 sleeves but they can tend to make a jacket look more casual. Not so with this one, though. I chose vintage taupe, love it. However, if you need a mushroom/grey-brown color you might be disappointed; it's more of a sandy-tan khaki. Haven't tried it with any greys yet but it goes well with everything else so far!
Dresses Up Any Outfit
I was very impressed with this jacket. It looks and feels like a very expensive designer jacket. The lining is an added bonus. I am a professional (lawyer) and easily wore this to the office and court but also wore it with denims after work. I am 5' 8" and the length was just right. I have long arms so the 3/4 length is always a safe bet. Fits true to size (i.e. what I would buy in a store). I purchased it in the black - to play it safe. Now that I know how beautiful it looks and feels I went back and ordered the dove grey.
Beautiful, useful jacket
I purchased this jacket in gray. I have worn it with a dress by Clinton Kelly. I usually wear cardigans, but thought this blazer would be great with dresses, skirts and pants. I have also worn it with capris. If you happen to take off the blazer, the lining is just as pretty.
Regular size definitely did not fit...runs small
I thought the jacket was made well. I like a structured jacket. Wasn't crazy about the print for the lining. Also, I thought the jacket ran very small. I checked the measurements ahead of time before ordering. I didn't have it on long enough to run into the lining problems like other reviews so I can't comment on that. Was a little pricey so I won't be ordering another because I don't want to pay shipping charges all over again.
Love the Jacket, But NOT THE LINING!!!!
I love everything about this jacket except the lining! The lining in the sleeves is bunchy. I tried to pull it up, down, out , every which way to make it flatten out but I just can't keep the jacket with the sleeves looking all bunchy. I agree with the other reviewer, take out the lining and the jacket is perfect!!!! Please listen to these reviews Clinton, I love everything else about the jacket!!!
Everything about this idea (design, pocket flaps, sleeve length, etc., etc.) is fabulous -- BUT the execution is horrible. The lining and outer jacket would not align, so this jacket would not hang properly. I could pull and reshape, but if I sat down and got up again, something would be pulled up, bunched, etc. The partial belts at the waist - again, a great idea - curled at the edges & just plain flipped inside out while I was wearing the jacket. The lapel also curled at the edges (bad interfacing..?). Overall effect: cheap & sloppy - not the look I'm going for at the office.
Clinton, please take this design and give it to a quality manufacturer.
I ordered the black and the beidge for myself and I loved them. They look great with dress pants or jeans. If fact I ordered four more for my sisters as Christmas gifts.
Sleeves are defective. The lining is loose, and the sleeves look sloppy. Poor quality. Had to return.
I really like the jacket--great color, shape, and fabric. I am short- waisted, so it fits me well. I don't imagine it would work well for a tall or long-waisted person. As one reviewer mentioned, the lining is made out of a cheap polyester fabric, which makes A tad bit hot. Other than that, I have nothing but praise.
Very Nice Jacket
I like the jacket alot, espcially the 'gray' color, unusual.. Would highly recommend to anyone
Just doesn't fit me
I am short waisted and have a large rib cage, so when I tried this on the pockets hit right below my bust. Not a pretty picture. I do like to construction and it seems to be of good quality, but I have to return it because of the fit.
Nice fitting jacket
I got the grey jacket, and am very happy with it. It is shaped enough to define the waist, and the length is perfect. So many jackets and tops on QVC now are oversized and way too long, so it is nice to finally get one that fits. I got the medium, which is my usual size in stores. Thanks, Clinton.
