Just what I was looking for... Only way less expensive!
Lightweight, versatile, and fits well. I sometimes struggle with jackets fitting my broad shoulders, but this is perfect. I've worn it a ton! The pockets aren't all functional, but that didn't really matter to me. I am more concerned with fit and comfort. And, the price is fantastic! I'm so glad I took a chance on this one.

Nice! But had to add 2 front snaps
This is a good spring or summer night jacket, but it *lacked front closure snaps* (it only has a zipper, and with 3 small kids, I never have 2 hands free to zip a jacket on the go, so I prefer snaps). I found the same snaps on AlumiGogo as well, and after practicing three times on scrap fabric, I was able to easily add the 2 snaps with just a hammer & the snap tools that came with the snaps kit I bought separately.
As for the jacket, ironing it will help since it arrived looking a bit unkempt. I had to trim all the fly-away threads as well. But once I got it how I like it, it's perfect. The drawstring waist adds a bit of feminine shape to an otherwise army-like man jacket. It is quite thin, so prepare to layer if it's more than just a bit chilly.
Order a size up! I am 140lbs and 5'5", and I ordered a large, which is just right. (I'm a medium in everything else). This way I can fit a sweatshirt under it.
It has some pockets but I haven't used them yet. To me, this jacket reminds me of the old army-surplus cargo jacket I used to wear in the 90s, but with a more feminine shape and not as warm.
Our 20 year-old nanny complimented it and said she was looking for something similar, so I guess it's a "cool" jacket, even though I had bought it more for function. :)
I recommend it, especially if you're handy with slight alterations. If it came with front closure snaps instead of just a zipper, it would get 5 stars.

Great jacket so glad I got this
Great jacket so glad I got this. Lightweight ,no lining ,goes with everything . Dresses up or down easily. I got a medium so I can wear it longer by adding layers or. Not. The fabric washed up great. It says to hand wash and dry flat. But I machine washed and dried it and no problems didn't even wrinkle. The waist finches in and is flattering. Love this jacket .made well and great value

Exactly as I expected. I'm 5'5", 135 lbs. I ordered a medium and it fits me well with a fair amount of room for a sweater.

Cheap and not finished
Sent this jacket back immediately. One of the sleeves was not hemmed. Very flimsy and thin material and it was too baggy even with the strings pulled in.

I had seen a Jennifer Miller jacket like this for $595 so I decided to make my own. I sewed on some patches and badda boom badda bing, it looks exactly like the original! I bought a large so i can layer a thin swearshirt underneath. Fits great- I am 5'8" and 130lbs.

Comfortable and stylish runs a bit small
Light/Med weight nicely lined and soft. I am a true medium so I listened to the reviews that said this jacket runs small and I got a large which fits Ike medium.

This jacket is poorly made and arrived missing a snap. The zipper on the right breast is not a real pocket, kind of disappointing.

It's fine, not something I'm obessed with which is what I was hoping for. Sleeves are to short, if you ever have that issue then they will be to short for you. I honestly just added old sweatshirt sleeves and sewed them in so that the sleeves were long enough and it looks pretty cute.

Slightly baggier than expected but otherwise stylish!
The navy color is great, but the coat fit a little baggier than I expected. It's also VERY thin, so should be worn as a coat for layering, not really for warmth. The style is great though and the coat hits mid-thigh
