Women's Milano Rib Blazer
Tried this jacket on at my local Sears not expecting it to look good....I was wrong...this jacket rocks. Cut to flatter and is very comfy. Purchased the black and went down one size and the fit was even better, less boxy in my waist. I am 5ft tall, 34 C and wore the size 4 without a problem. Plan on wearing this with t's and thin shirts all fall and winter. My favorite part of the jacket is the rolled up sleeves with exposed striped fabric...awesome detail and makes the jacket much more on trend and modern. Fabric is heavy enough that it will not need to be dry cleaned much as I think it will keep its shape. Excellent purchase!

What a great blazer! Great styling, comfy fit...this jacket has it all. I have it in navy and in gray with navy trim. I'll wear it year-round except for the hottest days of summer. Buy it; you won't regret it.

fun, casual blazer
My chestnut blazer with navy trim matches beautifully with this season's Supima no-iron blouse in dark blue stripe and dot. I really like the novel buttons with anchor and LE design. Princess seams, along with a pieced back and vent, make for a flattering fit. The high-hip length looks good with khakis or skirts. The blazer is comfortable with inside seams bound with bias tape for a smooth feel and sleeves lined in acetate for easy on and off. Sleeves can be pushed up or rolled up for a cute, fun look for a casual day at the office. Thanks, LE, for attending to the details--again!

I ordered this in two sizes and on both the shoulder seam came forward on me. I thought I could get over it but ended up sending it back. Otherwise the fit and quality were great. Might have worked with some shoulder pads but seriously who wears those anymore? I ordered the chestnut, it's a cross between brown and tan with navy trim

Very well made and lined. Comfortable and casual blazer. Great for business casual or even to dress up jeans. Got the beige colour because it was on for a great reduced price. Would much prefer navy for my coloring and taste.

Nice quality, but wow did it make me look huge!
I have broad shoulders and usually wear a 1X. The jacket fit reasonably well, if a little tight around the upper arms. Going up a size would have made everything else too big, though. The fabric is heavy, though it gives the jacket a look that I found more practical than stylish. This was disappointing, because the photos made it look like something that had a little flair, rather than a jacket that looks like every other one you've seen. I ordered the red, which didn't have the contrasting tape you see on the blue one. Also, I'm 5'8", and the sleeves were a little too short. In all, the jacket fell rather shorter than in the photo. My least favorite thing about the jacket is the lapels, which are actually fairly narrow. If you have broad shoulders, this just helps you look more like a linebacker. It went back.

This jacket is 100% polyester. Perhaps it looks better in other colors but I ordered the brown and it looked and felt very cheap.

Love the feel & the fit but poor stitching- EVERY button fell off!
I ordered online & was pleasantly surprised when I opened this jacket, so much so that I went to the store and purchased another one in another color! It's exactly what I was hoping for: A well-fitting blazer, perfect to dress up my favorite jeans and loafers. HOWEVER, I am thoroughly disappointed in the button security. I had the jacket on for 3 MINUTES when the first button fell off, and the jacket wasn't even buttoned closed at the time! Within 2 hours, every.single.button was on the floor under my desk - all 3 from the front, and all 3 from each sleeve. In fact, even the EXTRA button on the inside detached! My sewing skills are horrendous, so it took me a solid hour to reattach all buttons and reinforce the buttons on the other (unworn) jacket I had at home. If you're willing to put in the effort (blood, sweat & tears, in my case) and the price is right, then go for it!

A nice jacket but the buttons were inexplicably loose
I did like the jacket. It can be dressed up or worn casually for the weekend with jeans. I saw the buttons were very loose but thought it was as it should be (foolishly). I wore the jacket to a job interview and one of the buttons fell off in the interviewers office. I did not let it ruin my day but why are the buttons so loose? I sent a complaint from the Lands End site but did not hear anything (which I thought was odd).
Good news! I did get the button back from the interviewer. Hopefully will also get the job so I can keep shopping at Land's End! I love their products and almost never have an issue. I do buy a lot from Lands End and there are issues on rare occasions but most of the time I am very happy with my Lands End purchases.

Boxy and fabric too stiff
I was really looking forward to this jacket, so cute in the catalog! It arrived very wrinkled and I would need to have it steamed or cleaned first to really see how it looked. It hit me on the high hip and was too boxy. Not a fan of this one.
