Women's Milano Rib Blazer
Well Made, But Looks Dumpy on Petite Plus
This is a very well constructed blazer with extra seams, lined sleeves, nice tailoring and taping on the edges of the blazer, and great fabric that has a bit of stretch. However, the three pockets and the short length make my petite plus frame look dumpy. I reluctantly returned the items.

Nice jacket but unflattering in plus size
This is a nice blazer, but it just didn't work on my plus-size frame. Buttoned up, it looked like a bad uniform and seemed to add more bulk. Probably looks great on smaller sizes.

Love the jacket but do secure the buttons before wearing
The perfect jacket to compliment jeans and make you feel put together. I bought a petite and the length is just right. My only complaint is the button fell off and I lost it. I wish it were still available so I can get it other colors..

Going back for more colors
I am in between sizes so I ordered smaller size and that worked for me. I bought the blue and have a great patterned silk scarf to wear with it and I can wear it with jeans or dressier slacks for work. It fits well. Yes, the buttons will need to be secured but I am very pleased with my purchase. Arm length was perfect for me. Even considering buying a smaller size.

had to return
I'm short-armed with a high waist, so took a chance and ordered a petite size. Sleeve & shoulder width were perfect, but I found this blazer too short. Also, the fabric was surprisingly stiff, so that if it wasn't buttoned, the sides stood straight out from my body instead of draping. So disappointed - I've been looking for a knit blazer for a long time!

The first day I wore it work, one of the buttons was lying on my office floor...
I guess I don't need to write any further...disappointed is the least that I can say!

Will eventually own every color
I'm 5'4", 135 pounds and tried this on first at Sears. It was a good thing because a size 4 fits me very well when I usually wear a 6 or 8. These blazers are great because the weight is substantial but they're not restrictive in the shoulders like many blazers are. The length of the arms is right on and it hits me right at the hip where it's most flattering. The other reviewers are right that the buttons fall off easily so either reinforce the ones that come on the blazer or switch them out for something else. Highly recommend.

Own 3 of these...but tighten buttons before going out
I own this in navy, wine & brown/navy. I normally wear a 14 jacket...but this is slightly (very slightly) large fitting & should be more fitted...so thought it would look better in the 12. I love this jacket. Goes with jeans, trousers, crops, etc....but the buttons literally fall off while you're wearing it. WHAT THE HECK!. The jacket does come with AN extra button -- so before you wear this one...double sew the buttons. Would give 4 stars (never give 5)...but the button thing drives me insane

I love this jacket!
Since retiring, I live in T-shirts and jeans. I own three of these jackets (blue, gray and green) and there is nothing like a great, trendy jacket to pull T's and jeans together. They are well constructed and I do not find them boxy at all. I love being able to unbutton the cuffs and turn them up and the lining in the sleeves are a nice touch. It enables you to slip into the jacket easier when wearing a long sleeved shirt. Other reviewers reported the jacket running a little large. My normal size, petite medium, turned out to be the ideal fit as I am a tad broad through the shoulders. Although the material's weight would not be something I would want for summer wear, I think it is more than adequate for fall, early winter and spring. Nice job, LE!

The cut is odd at the sleeves/bustline. And I've had to replace two buttons (of 3) on the front, in 3 months (about 4-5 wearings.) They just weren't sewn on with sturdy or enough threads for the type of button, because the jacket is plenty big. I have had to replace buttons on 2 Lands End sweaters, too, so I'm disappointed in that quality feature-- I don't like having to shore up the workmanship on non-cheap clothing. Otherwise I like the jacket, including that the pockets are real, and it's washable.
