Bob Mackie's Santa Fe Dream Embroidered 3/4 Sleeve Jacket
Nice, But Not Great!
The brown is a good color and the embroidery is very attractive. I do not like the very stiff fabric and it arrived wrinkled. Seems to run a bit smaller than other Bob M. jackets that I own.
Stiff as a board and those sleeves!
This jacket would have been so much nicer if it were just a bit softer but, to me, the worst part is those sleeves! Those wide 3/4 length sleeves give the whole jacket such a matronly look! If they were just closer fitted to the arms, the jacket would look younger and fresher as opposed to something my mother would wear. Going back.
i bought two of theses and both are beautiful they are the best buy everl
I liked the jacket, but it was shorter in the back so it didn't hang right. Also, it's more boxy in person than it looks on the models or the picture on QVC.Com. It's a little busy, but I thought after I received it I would like all the design work on the jacket. I just didn't like it enough to keep it. Sending it back.
I can't believe I haven't written a review on this jacket previously because I own four of them and it's one of my all-time favorite Q purchases. I just got the teal which is my new favorite, wore it today and everyone was agog over it. I have plenty of eye-popping turquoise jewelry to set these jackets off, although they also look smashing with plain silver. The fabric has a lot of body and is a little stiff at first but softens with wear and washing. I wouldn't mind if they were a little longer as it seems all my shirts peek out at the bottom. The jacket itself is cut generously but is not hugely oversize. I live in the Southwest and this is perfect for my lifestyle and the climate.
Ordered the denim in small. Good fit. Love the vibrant colors and theme. Good weight fabric, very comfortable. Another Bob Mackie beauty!
LOVE THE JACKET
Giving it 4 stars because the center back length on the XL is 26", not 27-1/2" as listed in description. I was counting on the extra 1-1/2 " to fully cover my rear. However, I like the jacket sooo much I am keeping it and may reorder in another color at a later date.
This jacket is beautiful. Bought in the teal and the embroidered design is just stunning. Wear black top and pants with this jacket and get compliments from strangers. It really is remarkable to get a jacket like this for the price.
If you like southwestern design, you will love this jacket
I'm thrilled by all the compliments!
I have the chino color jacket and love it! Today I received two compliments from employees in two different areas of an art museum who commented on the beautiful colors. I thought this was very special and wanted to share this with Bob Mackie and thank him once again for his wonderful creations. I recently received the comfortable wide-leg pants in sand and russet in the petite length and I am very pleased with them. Again, the colors are beautiful! I feel so blessed to be able to purchase Bob's beautiful clothing!
3 seams were not stitched in denim jacket
I love all things Bob Mackie, and this jacket is beautiful. However, I was disappointed to discover that there were three places in the two seams going down from the bust where the stitching was non existant in the denim jacket I received. If the missing seams had been somewhere that was not so visable, I might have tried to repair them, but decided I might not be happy with my repair job, and for the price the jacket should go back as defective. I was also very surprised that the medium blue denim color that is pictured is not at all the same color as the jacket I received, which was very dark blue denim that I liked, but others might be disappointed. I would love to reorder this again after the quality issues are resolved. I had a similar jacket from Bob that I purchased many years ago, and always received complements when I wore it.
I love this jacket so much that I own three of them, in chino, purple and teal. They are so pretty, and the embroidery is outstanding. Bob' jackets are just addicting. I also own two of the Turkish delight jackets, and two of the one with the square jewels on the shoulders. With the Santa Fe Dreams version, I find the fabric is good quality and the embroidery is outstanding. So I will continue buying Bob Mackie' s designs. Haven't been disappointed yet.
POOR WORKMANSHIP ON DENIM JACKET
Received denim jacket today and very disappointed in the construction. Neck facing is not properly stitched. Looks like maybe a returned item that was washed. Can't be worn with the neck facings like this. Does not represent the usual Bob Mackie quality.
