Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as Pictured I had really high hopes for this jacket, and those hopes were actually bolstered by the first reviewer's comments: I am short-waisted with slender shoulders and comparatively long legs, hence a "boxy" look is generally just right for me. Alas, not in this case. The jacket is not nearly as substantial as the photo makes it appear; it is a very open, light-weight knit, more of a summer-weight, and not nearly so constructed as the images make it appear to be. The fabric is so flimsy that the rounded collar pictured flops into narrow lapels on both sides. The sleeves are disproportionately long, and would be tough to shorten given the knit design. And it is really over-priced. I'd been looking forward to adding this number to my considerable wardrobe of PC pieces, because I really did like the design, but it had to go back. Simply not as advertised!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Nice - But the Wrong Cut For My Build I love this jacket and wish it had been flattering on me. If it had flattered, then I would have given it five stars. It's a really good-looking, unusual piece. It could, on the right person, look really chic - a little Coco, a lot Boho. But on me the cut just looked too short and boxy. I am 5'8" and have broad shoulders and a narrow waist. Since the jacket is loose fitting and hangs straight down it didn't do anything good for me.(Sizing down doesn't fix the problem. I know because I tried.) If you have the build to pull off short and boxy, don't hesitate.

Graphically patterned with Moroccan textile geometrics in ivory and indigo, the substantial knit jacket strikes a perfect balance between haute hippie and uptown chic. Handloomed of wool (56%) and alpaca (44%) and accented with an intriguing, cut-float fringe, the boxy silhouette has a round collar and clean, buttonless placket.
