Women's Fringe Textured Jacket
Very comfortable and cute
This jacket is adorable. It reminds me of a much more expensive jacket on trend today from a famous women's clothing line.
I like it zipped and unzipped with a blouse underneath. No smell of any kind noted. On sale this was a super value. Thanks Lands End.

Pretty, but narrow
Very narrow across shoulders. Had to return it.

The sleeves are very long! So had to have them shortened, but otherwise the fit is true to size. It isn't too boxy, the fabric is very thin, and could pull quite easily, but I am very happy with it overall.

Terrific jacket with some reservations
I really love this jacket (am wearing it now), probably because my expectations were tempered by the other reviews. Nice colors, the bit of metallic thread is good and bad (I don't really like metallic, but am happy with it in this jacket, since I knew it was there before I bought it), the weave of the fabric is pretty loose. I can see how people could be concerned about the fringe trim, but I think it is going to be fine. I normally wear size 6 in Lands End tops but got an 8 based on reviews and the size 8 fits quite well. The sleeves are long! I am tall and far more often have to deal with sleeves that are too short, so I'll happily take ones that are probably a bit too long. I also really like the length of the jacket itself, and the cut that is slightly boxy but not completely boxy. I got this on a very good sale, so that impacts my opinion of the jacket - it is definitely worth what I paid for. I'm wearing it at the office today and out to the theater tonight. The fringe trim is a little scratchy on my neck - next time I will wear it with a turtleneck.

A perfect fit, but material is poor quality :(
This jacket fit me perfectly. I'm a size 14. And the jacket was really well made and lined, but the material was already fraying, and with metallic threads, that only made the jacket look cheap. I would have preferred paying more for better fabric, because the fit was excellant, and I could tell that its construction was labor-intensive. All that effort wasted because of the fabric.

I love this jacket. It is quality constructed and fits me well with a light sweater underneath. The self fabric fringe trim is subtle and a nice touch. Yes, this jacket is reminiscent of an expensive classic designer's style. It goes great with skinny jeans and boots. I am tall and thin, so I was pleased to find that the sleeves are just the perfect length (size 4) and the body is only gently shaped, more boxy than fitted. The tweedy fabric has a metallic silver thread that makes the plaid interesting and a little bit dressy.

Upper arms tight, sleeves too long. Way too much to have altered, so back it goes.

This jacket was not what I expected. The overall quality was poor - NOT what I expect from Land's End and NOT worth the money. Although cute in style, the upper arms are a bit tight and the zipper is poor quality. I ordered a size up, thinking I could wear a light sweater underneath but could hardly wear even a blouse. I'm returning it.

I have been looking forward to this jacket being shipped (it's been on backorder since I ordered it on Aug 22/14) so when I arrived I was so excited. I have been ordering size 12 or mediums from LE with no problem in the fit until today. The first thing I noticed when I tried the jacket on, the arms are tight and it pulls across the shoulders. Then, when I zipped it up, it's rides up so much at the hip it bags across the midriff and then is tight again across the bust. To add insult to injury, I was very disappointed in the quality of the zipper which was very flimsy, the fabric which is very thin to the point that I felt the seams wouldn't stay in tact and the texture feature would actually start to fray. Considering the price of this jacket, I was very surprised at the lack of quality. I would have considered exchanging it for a 14 but the arm legnth is already a touch long and the quailty probably wouldn't be any better. This is going to be the first item I've had to send back and I'm hoping the last. :)
