A85931 - Bradley by Bradley Bayou Suede Croc Print Jacket w/Chain
+ Fab Fit For Petite +
I'm 5'3", 118lbs, HG )( figure and the XS is absolutely perfect for me. The styling follows all the dictums of Bradley B's "The Science of Sexy Dressing".
Don,t be fooled by the title, it should be subtitled "Looking Your Best At Any Size".
#1 ON MY LIST OF FAVORITE QVC FASHION PURCHASES
SIMPLY STUNNING DESIGN, PERFECT FAUX CROCO TEXTURE, AND COUTURE CRAFTSMANSHIP. ABSOLUTELY MY FAVORITE FASHION PURCHASE FROM QVC. DARK CHOCOLATE OPTION IS SO OPULENT AND ELEGANT. CHAIN DETAIL IS TASTEFUL AND UNDERSTATED. VERY MINOR FLAW IS THE HOOK AND EYE CLOSURES BUT I WILL WEAR IT OPEN. THIS LOOKS LIKE A $600 JACKET WITH ITS EUROPEAN ICONIC DESIGN.
THANK YOU, BRADLEY FOR SUCH A BREATHTAKING JACKET.
I USUALLY WEAR A PETITE MEDIUM OR A SIZE 8P TO 10P AND THIS JACKET FITS ME PERFECTLY IN SMALL. SLEEVES ARE NOT TOO LONG FOR A PETITE.
Worn it EVERYDAY
I know, I know, you're not suppose to wear the same thing day after day. But this jacket is awesome! Looking, fitting, feeling, everything. And I do change the shirt and skirt I'm wearing, but I cant help putting this jacket on. I got it in chocolate, what DOESN'T it go with!
Way to go Bradley, this is my first time trying you.
I cannot disagree more with those who felt this jacket was "too busy": Yes it's got a lot going on, but it can handle it! I love the chain, the croc leather, suede, you name it, I love it! Just show it all off by wearing a plain brown trousers/shirt / whatever! Easily my favorite leather jacket! Good Job, Bradley!
I absolutely LOVED this jacket as soon as I took it out of the box!! I ordered the last 3X in ivory and am sooo glad I did. I saw where others had said it wasn't up to par for Bradley, but I disagree.. Fit perfectly.. Great weight to it.. Maybe I got lucky, but I completely LOVE it!! It was my first Bradley jacket, but it will NOT be my last :) Bradley continues to be one of my favorite designers that you have on QVC.. Keep them coming!!
Not this one!
I couldn't wait to get this! EZ pay, looked so nice on air and online. But when I put it on, it looked kiind of cheap and the leather was paper-thin. True-to-size, and XS was indeed, an XS, and fit like a dream. Just not for me. And not at this price! Another 6.95 down the drain...
Love Bradley but Not this Jacket
I have many Bradley Jackets that I love, not this one. I read the reviews and had mixed feeling about it. I love the picture of the jacket in chocolate witht the chain trim. I had to wait til it was back in stock in a 2x ( I wear a 1x in QVC clothes except Bradelys Jacket I have to order up a size) I was thrilled when I saw it availabe in 2x. I received the jacket yesterday, was excited when opening it; The jacket is very well made but the finsih to the leather is not what I expected. It has the appearance of a cheap finsih. I hate to say back it goes.
Never too much!
AS YOU CAN TELL BY THE HEADING I LIKE THE UNUSUAL AND THIS IS IT. NOT GAUDY, BUT JUST A LITTLE DIFFERENT. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE DIFFERENT DON'T BUY IT. I RECOMMEND SIZING UP IF YOU WANT TO CLOSE IT. ENJOY.
A different look
I ordered this jacket in brown in 1X (which I usually wear); however, I've had to send it back and order 2X. I don't think it's gaudy at all - the dull brass chain blends in with the brown and I particularly like the suede trim - it feels softer around the neck line.
Earns 5 stars
I have to say I just love this coat. I don't think it is at all gaudy and have gotten many compliments on it. Bradley's coats are so different and that is what I like about this one. I bought the brown and the color is very rich and the coat in general is slimming. Also the chains do not make this coat heavy. Just the opposite in that I can comfortably wear it with a sweater without a bulky feeling. Overall, I have enjoyed wearing it this year for the comfort and compliments.
Too Much Going On
On TV, it looked like a fabulous jacket with chain so I ordered in brown. Well, I must say this jacket looks gaudy in person. Too much going on. I love the other jacket with chain in lamb leather. I absolutely adore it, but not this one. The Croc print, Suede trim, and gold chain. Too much for the eyes. I have to agree with one of the reviews, the gold chain makes this jacket look gaudy. And hook & eye closure is horrible. I had to fight to unhook and hook. I sent it back immidiately. Sorry, this is not onf of the best.
This is my first Bradley Bayou purchase (it certainly wont be the last) but unfortunately I was not as impressed as I thought I would be. I bought the ivory in size small. The fit is fabulous and I love the lining but like the previous reviews, I am not a fan of the hook & eye closures (very hard to work with) and I dont particularly care for the chain decoration, I think it makes the jacket look cheap. I got roped in during an anniversary show with a lower price and easy pay. So sorry to say, it will be going back. The 3 stars is for the style, the quality would definately get 5 stars but the rating is not just for quality alone!
