Bob Mackie's Zip Zag Embroidered Button Front Twill Jacket
Own in Four Colors
This top is so elegant and flattering, and this clearance price is amazing. I am glad that I read the reviews, because I did size up to accommodate for the back elastic detailing, which I love. It is just that the elastic will take up some of the fabric. I actually prefer to wear this buttoned up as a blouse, because the neckline is so beautiful. But, it also looks great with a tee underneath for a more casual look. The sleeves are a great length for spring, and are slightly flared at 3/4 length with the same gorgeous embroidery. I own the black, white, taupe, and blue, and all the embroidery colors coordinate beautifully. Highly recommend!
I love Bob Mackie's clothing, especially his tee shirts with the corsage look to them. I love sparkle and embroidery, so when I saw this jacket presented on TV, I just had to try it. I ordered the white in my regular Mr. Mackie size for jackets and it fits perfectly! I even bought some Veronese jewelry to go with it since I am usually a silver girl. Well, I can't wait to wear it out with a tank under it. I may even try a couple of the other colors! It's perfect!!! Thanks, Bob and QVC!
Great Summer Jacket!
I can't believe this jacket is on clearance. I purchased it in black, white, blue and came back for the kacki (all in medium, which is my usual size). It fits similar to Joan Rivers' jackets with a little elactic in the back for shaping. I also purchased Bob Mackie's pants in the same colors. I know hosts are talking about color blocking but with my pear shape I like to wear the same color for a slimmer look. Give it a try, you'll like the look.
Get this jacket It's Zig Zag Beautiful
This is a beautiful jacket and I almost got the white one too, however, I have several jackets that I want in several colors so I have to pick and choose what I can buy and not. I can’t afford to buy everything of his that I want, on the other hand, though, Thank GOD I can afford to buy any of his. I like this jacket because of the gathers in the back. Just let him do something different and everybody goes nuts. The one reviewer said she had to send it back. The thing is, is because he has this one fitted more than usual, than you have to be a little more careful in the size you are getting. You need to get your correct size as the gathers in the back is going to cinch in the waist a bit. Now you also have to figure that if you are long or short waisted that will make a difference. For instance, I am short waisted so the gathers come about where my hips are. So I had to buy a size larger to fix that. So consider that the gathers are going to cinch in the waist giving you an hour glass figure. On top of that, the embroidery is a zig zag/rick/rack type of embroidery and exquisite at usual and so vibrant. My complaint is the fact that there are no pockets, I love pockets on everything, why? I don’t know, I just have to have a multitude of pockets in everything. But am I going to give him fewer stars because of this, NO, NO, NO, NO. Because that is simply something I like and not a necessary, and in fact pockets are not necessary in anything, I just prefer them. Now another thing nice about this jacket is he has made the placket really uniquely. He has the placket half way down to the wais surrounded by gold embroidery and therefore the buttons match the placket design and they have gold signature buttons. However just below the waist, he has one more button that is dyed to match the jacket so you don’t even see it. This is a very nice, beautiful jacket that I cannot see you wouldn’t like. Try it. Keep in mind that the cinching of the waist is right at normal waist level, so buy your size accordingly, So Thank you again Bob Mackie for making me another jacket with which I can wear with my Camis that I buy just to go with your items. Thank you, and thank you
This has gathers in the back and is much more fitted than Bob's normal jackets. So beware! I had to send it back. The workmanship is fine, though, and if you have a skinny middle, this will be fine.
