I know there are a lot of people out there who really like this jacket, but I am not one of them. This jacket is alpha-sized, and I think it runs large. I cannot remember if I officially sized down in this jacket, but at the very least, it was pretty loose on me, and I probably could have gotten away with sizing down.
I really don't have much to say about this jacket. I'll let The Boyfriend say it all. While taking the jacket off the rack:
"Are you Fidel Castro or something?"After I put it on, he continued the joke:
"Why, hello, Fidel!"Honestly, my feelings about this jacket don't differ too much. It's not that it's a bad jacket - it's just not really my style. I felt very goofy in it. And shapeless. I do like it better from the side.
And practically passable from the back! I will say the fabric is pretty nice - fairly soft and moveable, which is always nice in a coat.
I think I would have considered this jacket if it didn't have those ridiculous pockets splattered all over the front of it. Heck, if J.Crew made the sleeves detachable, I'd have a military jacket and fishing vest in one!
So what do you think? Do you like this jacket? Do you own it? How many pockets is too many?
