Women's Milano Rib Blazer
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!

This blazer is so comfortable! You can move in it because of the knit fabric; good color too. The only thing is the buttons. They literally fell off within two hours of me wearing it and I did NOT have it buttoned! What is with that?? I order from LE for the classic styles and quality. I don't understand what happened with these buttons barely threaded onto the jacket. Other than that, I love it.

My mother-in-law was thrilled
The fit on this blazer was terrific. I bought this for my 89 year-old mother-in-law and she loves it. The fabric was stiff at first, but once she put it on and wore it a bit it really softened up. I hope it washes well for her. The fit was great - and it gave her more of a waist than her other jackets.

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!
