Denim & Co. Washable Suede Fully Lined Fringed Jacket
I first bought this jacket in the black and it is very comfortable. I wanted it a bit big so that I could wear it as an outer garment so I sized up one size. If you plan on wearing it inside, stick to your normal size. I loved it so much, I went back and bought the burgundy color, which is quite lovely too. If you don't want heads to turn, stay away from this one!! :)
On clearance for a reason
I purchased my jacket when it first came out. I'm not sure how long ago, maybe three years. I finally washed it today. The trick to it is to stretch the seams when you take it out of the washer, let it hang overnight. Throw it in the dryer the next morning with a dryer sheet (I used no fabric softener in the wash and used Woolite) and set it on the lowest setting: my dryer has an air fluff setting. It will take a while, but my jacket came out soft. It sounds like a lot of work, but worth it. The only problem I have ever had with it is that, like many others, it's too small. I, too am losing weight and hope to wear it again in the fall. Denim & Co is one of my main wardrobe components and I have never had a fitting problem, so this was indeed a fluke. It's a gorgeous jacket, though. I, too, am of the 60's generation and it brought me back to bell bottoms, tie dye and fringed jackets.
LOVE THIS JACKET!!!
The only problem was getting the correct size. I ordered the medium first because that easily fit my measurements. It fit okay if I only wanted to wear a light layer under the jacket. I went back and ordered the large and I can wear a sweater in the spring and fall, which is perfect. It can also work well for winter when I know I will actually be inside but can wear a sweater under to get to and from an event, etc. to stay warm. It really breaks the wind and wears as great as the one I had in the 70's that I wore to death (repaired over and over) for 25 years. Love this jacket. Highly recommended.
Love the Jacket - but sizing off
I love this jacket, I had one when I was 16 in dark brown and I still have it, now 36 years later I have it again. the Suede is very nice got it in the Black and it is really sharp looking.
In Denim & Co I wear in a jacket 1x to 2X depending on the chest measurements an the cut. So on this one with all the reviews stating that it ran small I ordered it in the 2X and 3X, sadly I have to go with the 3X and this is just wearing a long sleeve t under it. I would like to have it in the Brown also but one of the reveiws said it was taupe. I thought it kind of looks like Chestnut which is pretty. Not sure about that one. Again the Black is Stunning I'm glad It purchased it. Also the price you can not beat, I have seen similar jackets for around $200
Color brown was more of a Taupe
really like this jacket- have wanted a fringe one like this for decades but couldn't afford one. Ordered the brown as I have Minnetonka moccasins and handbag and this looked like it would blend quite well and looked like the same warm brown- but when it arrived it was very much a taupey-brown and not a warm nutmeg-brown like the picture. Still like the color and decided to keep- couldn't beat the price and flexible payments.... may go back and order a black one :) I did size up as I usually do in D&Co tops as I am busty and it fits great.
After reading the reviews I was not sure if I should buy a larger jacket, however, I decided to order my size and take a chance. It fit me perfectly. I felt very good in my fringed jacket and my daughter said I was in style. All I know is I love it and feel great in it and that is all that counts with me. Being in style is a bonus!
Had to have another one!
I first purchased the black.....loved it......
I always size up in leather and suede...
And it fits great. But I like my coats to be a little bigger.
My true size would be a L or XL? In Susan Graver things a L.
Denim &co XL. But I know suede has no give so I ordered a 1X because I am busty and it fits beautifully ..
Everyone wanted to know where I got it?
Of course I needed a new pair of boots to match...lol
But because it went to clearance And I love the black one so much I decided to order the indigo .
It was way to purple for me...so I returned it for the brown.
Waiting on it now.
But these jackets are really nice for the price...
They are made well and look expensive.
If you buy one and like a little room size up.
At any rate they are so worth the price ...
Hurry before your size is gone.
Received this in black and just love it!!! Got compliments right away first day I wore it. Great color...nice rich black..ordered my regular size...perfect sizing...gives a nice shapely figure...highly recommend.
Love the Fringe Look
I originally ordered the 1X and usually wear XL in Denim & Co. and Susan Graver, however although it closed and looked nice, my sister said it looked a little tight. So, I exchanged the jacket .
I feel the larger size is a little too big but it has the versatility of wearing in colder weather with a sweater and scarf. The sleeves are a little long but good if carrying handbag or packages. I have the black and love that the fringe is just enough. Great price.
Love, Love, Lot of Love
I love it, I was crazy to have one of those 60's leather jacket without braking the bank. My only reserve is that I bought it in black and the color transfer to my desk and also the leaves are one inch shorter that I would want. I am a tall women and my arms are one inch obove average for one inch. For a regular women I guess it would be 5 stars. Anyway I love it. It feels confortable and the leather is soft and blendable and good quality. I am considering another color.
Fulfilling a Teenage Dream!
I have wanted a suede fringe jacket since I was in 8th grade, and they were so popular then (1970). Believe it or not, I actually paid less for this one than it would have cost back then. This is not a heavy coat, so don't expect it to keep you warm when it is very cold. Fortunately for me, I am hot natured, so can wear it when others might not. Am considering it as a gift for a real cowgirl.
Great, Suede Jacket
I am very happy with my purchase of this jacket. I am glad that I sized up one size. I am narrow but busty and I would usually wear a Medium but I bought a Large and I am so glad that I did. The black is beautiful. I will wear it in the spring. Too cold in New York right now to even think about it. Great deal & thanks QVC!!!
