Women's Long Sleeve Stripe Felted Wool Jacket
PERFECT for Spring or that COOL summer night in the A/C! (or beach walk!)
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE this jacket!.....I almost didn't order it because of some of the reviews, but decided to take a chance because of a comment one of them wrote. So, I have rec'd this WONDERFUL soft wool jacket. Now, its says wool, but its NOT that ICHY wool that comes to mind!......Its actually SOFTER, more like a polar fleece type feel! Yes, I ordered this in May, but now they I rec' it, I can see on a cool summer night at the shore, or even at dinner in the A/C (I am always chilly!)----I LOVE LOVE the navy w white stripes! I plan to "summer it up" by wearing w white pants or shorts! The ONLY thing thats a little odd, you have to play w the collar, but once you get it in the right position, it fits like a dream! I ordered the Small. I am 5'8" tall, 125. my bust is shrinking, so I would say a 35B. It fits GREAT!! It falls just below the hips (someone comments its too short? it falls just wear the model does, just below the hips. I cant says enough. OH! and the buttons are a snap closure,(hidden) but thats fine, not a problem to open or close! If in doubt, give it a try! Lands End as a GREAT return policy, so you cant possibly be disappointed! I am thrilled!

Yes, I'm Keeping it, BUTTTTTTT -
I also had been watching this to go on sale. I'm in Texas, so we don't need to wear a lot of winter clothing and this light weight wool is perfect. It's not itchy, but warm with a long sleeve T underneath. I'm not fond of the "snap" buttons. Mine are tight and I feel like I have to be super careful when opening and closing them so as not to damage the sweater.
Biggest disappointment is the fit. My complaint is just like the others. The model has such a long flattering fit, but when you get it on, it's quite short and flared at the bottom. I was planning on wearing it with leggings, but its not long enough to cover my butt like the picture. I wear a lot of lands end petite XS @ 5'2" and typically the sizing is very consistent. This one seems to be off, but I like the sweater enough to keep it for a few uses.

I was so excited to finally order this sweater, I had been eyeing it all season. I tried it on the minute it was delivered. I was soo disappointed. Previous reviews are correct, it flares out towards the bottom, an A line cut. The pictures on the website are deceiving. The model with the blue sweater and green pants must have the sweater clipped in the back to give such a look of a slim fit at the hips. Also the model wearing the red color, is sort of holding it in with her hand. The material and quality seem great, but I wouldn't have ordered if I had known the actual fit/cut of this jacket.

Good but not great
I'm plus sized, typically wear a 1x in LE and the sizing was consistent with the exception of the hip area. It seems to flare out a little. It's weird. The red color is great, and it's a warm sweater. I'm not a fan of wool, it always seems itchy to me. I wore it with a long sleeved tshirt and didn't feel any of the itchiness. The biggest downside of the sweater is that it piled up so quickly! After just a few hours it was full of little balls. Disappointing. For that reason, I wouldn't recommend this item.

Cozy and warm but sizing is way off!
I was really looking forward to receiving this item especially given the several recent positive reviews. Although it is lightweight and warm, it is made very large. I also agree with the first person who reviewed this sweater, the bottom really flares out way too much. Such a shame, I am really disappointed.

I bought this in red and have received nothing but complements. Two of my friends have ordered it for themselves as a result. Very cozy, but not heavy. Love the collar. Only downside is that it is dry clean only.

Good quality, nice fit. Very smart.

Very soft, toasty jacket
I love this felted sweater/jacket! I had read just the one review and thought it ran very large, so I ordered a size smaller than usual, and really need to trade it for my regular size S. Even though I'm a short 5' person, I find the big squishy collar very flattering. I love the snaps! They could be a bit closer together, to prevent gaping, although switching to the next size should solve this (and I want to be able to layer it over things). The jacket is fitted through the chest & armhole area, and then swings out a bit at the hem, with great pockets. It's a wonderful shape, and so comfy I don't want to take it off. I got the red which looks great with black; I feel a little like a candy cane (in a good way). I will wear it with my Starfish terry pants (and silk long johns) for a warm casual and work-at-home outfit.

Fits very big and boxy.
I was in-love with this on the model and couldn't wait to get it. I am 5'8", 185 lbs and wear a 32HH size bra, so I thought a large should fit (this corresponds to the measurement guide, also). It was huge and very boxy, it is not atll cut like the one on the model, it is not slim fitting or tailored but actually A-line or a trapeze cut. I am so disappointed.
