lovely after all
I wanted something a bit different so I choose the dark olive color. When it arrived I was not so sure but the husband liked it - for the first time in several years he asked what I paid for an article of clothing and when I told him - he suggested I get another one. (Thanks STP!) The clean lines of the classic conservative styling and quality workmanship will serve many uses for several years. Looks smashing against deep black, dark chocolate, and denim but not so much against faded colors. The sleeves would be a bit long for most ladies but suit me well. I had to go for the large size r/t bustline but the shoulders fit well and it still looks very nice while not promoting the "athletic front" that some other fitted jackets do
Nice, but not quite right for me
Yes, this is a very nice jacket. I'm 5'8" and a bit and 132 lbs. It fit me nicely with plenty of room for a sweater, but seemed a little boxier than I'd like. Also, the color was a very dark brown and since I have a similar jacket in black I decided it wasn't a different enough color to justify keeping. I'd been going for something a little more "milk chocolate" and less "80 proof, dark chocolate." A very nice jacket with beautiful leather though.
Great jacket, and at the current rates of discount you won't do better. There was a risk that it would run a bit short (I'm 5'9) but it's fine, and the large is a good fit on my US 12-14 frame with room for one woollen layer underneath. It's not a particularly fitted jacket, but nor is it as boxy as a previous review has suggested. Wish STP still offered the olive, I'd grab that one in a heartbeat, too.
Nice simple jacket
Leather soft and flexible - Colour nice. Scotchguarded this item twice as soon as I received and before I wore it to protect it.
Very comfortable. Not stiff at all. You would have to be careful that it did not get nicked, it would be very fragile to getting holes. I will avoid this happening. Coat was worn with jeans and looked good. Would be a good work coat. Length is not too long in the body.
Nice leather, odd fit
Fits me very well in the shoulders and chest. The only reason I ordered XL (14-16) is because L (10-12) would have been too small. What happened to size 12-14? It worked out for the best, though, for the reason previously stated. Below the chest, however, it flares out at the bottom to the point it needs darts. For that reason, I contemplated sending it back, but the price was too good, and the quality is nice.
This is my second purchase from Sierra Trading Post and I am very pleased. I was lucky to catch my size, large, in a double discount. The jacket has enough of a fit that it is flattering to my aging mid-section. I was worried that the shoulders would be too wide or the sleeves too long but that was not the case. A friend told me it was very youthful looking, which I can use.
This jacket is really soft and comfortable. I orderd the black to replace a jacket that I had purchased 5 yrs ago. This jacket was 1/2 the cost of my old one and much nicer. The sleeves are just long enough and the length hit me about 4 inches below my hips (I'm 5'5). The lining is not too heavy and I have plenty of room to wear a sweater.
I wanted a leather jacket that was comfortable, simple, but stylishly cut. This jacket met all my specifications and is a good value for the money. The olive color is subtle and the leather good quality. Fit is great - I saw the review that said it was masculine, but disagree. Too warm outside to wear leather yet, but I look forward to it.
Nice Jacket -- Great Price
I really like the jacket. Good classic styling. The sleeves are long for me but that is not unsual. The leather is very soft and the jacket is well-made. I wish the color were a little darker brown but I am keeping it anyway. I have been looking for a classic leather jacket for some time and this one fills that need!
The leather is not the smoothest but the price would reflect that. Overall for the price it's a cute jacket. I bought the off-white and the leather is almost pearlized but I like it. The sleeves are just right for me, my arms seem to be shortish to average in length and sometime jacket sleeves go down past my thumbs!
