Rated 5 out of 5 by anthroonline classic with edge
After reading all of the reviews, I decided to go with my usual size 2 in the black. I was looking for a leather jacket that would last through the seasons, in a quiet, timeless, slightly shrunken style. After receiving it, I was very pleased with it. The leather is smooth and soft. It is slightly cropped but does go a little past the waist of my jeans, so for me this is fine. I like the fact that it does not have the "high-low" effect that so many jackets seem to have but is the same length all the way around. All I want to wear underneath is a tee, so I prefer the slim fit of the size 2. I am 5'4", 112ish lbs and 34B, slight but athletic build. The sleeves are maybe a tad long as they come to the middle of my hand. But this is a minor ding for me, as the sleeves don't look sloppy. I decided to share my stats in the review because if you're like me, these measurements are useful in figuring out what size to get. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pessa Perfect Leather Jacket!
I ordered Barely Peach. The color does not work on me. Barely Peach is more a dark pinky beige which would look great on women who are blonde or uber tan or olive skinned. On me it looked like baby poo with my super fair skin and dark hair. So, the style and fit was amazing and I quickly ordered the black one. I usually take size 12 in everything and I ordered up in the jacket to a size 14 which fits me like a glove. This jacket is wonderfully detailed. It is thick soft leather and the padding is thick with soft high quality leather. The black has Gold zippers which gives it a wonderful twist of femininity. I adore this jacket...it is short so it will look good with jeans and a long thin sweater or a t shirt or over a dress with boots for the Charlotte Gainsbourg look. I am older in my 50's and think this is a jacket for all ages. LOVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SUNSHINE GORGEOUS DOES NOT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE IT!
A little bit of sophistication, a little bit of wild... this piece in white is the perfect jacket to wear during the day or for a night out. This jacket's construction is perfectly tailored for the style. The only thing I have noticed with J.Crew as of late, is that their jackets are running a bit small around the arms. I sized up just in case and I am so happy I did. The Jacket had sold out by the time I received it. Thank you for this beautiful addition to my Collection of one of a kind pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yogafan Excellent jacket
I managed to somehow find this one in ivory, and it's amazing. I got a size 4 and I could use a 2 - it runs long in the sleeves and the 4 is a bit big in my shoulders. I am 5'4" 117 pounds, usually wear an XS top in JCrew. But seeing as how I'll never find it in this color again, I'm keeping the 4. If anyone out there has a size 2 in ivory that's too small let me know! :-) I also tried on the navy in the store and it is GORGEOUS - would buy that one too if I didn't already have a dark leather jacket. You won't regret this purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by hilltop1 Lovely and runs small
Most of all, I love the color; it is a lovely shade of navy (a color I don't usually care for or care to wear very often) but this has a grey-bluish undertone to it in contrast with all the jet black leather jackets out there, it makes a nice wearable change. The jacket runs small and is this coming from a petite size, 5"1'. The jacket is also thicker than I expected so don't expect too much (any!) room to wear a thick sweater. With a size 0, I can manage a t-shirt underneath but the size 2 which of course comes with a longer arm length is only a little roomier. I couldn't decide on the size in the store so left it (for the moment) especially as this item didn't qualify for any of the current promotions (sigh!). Note to J.Crew: if this had qualified for the current promotion for J.Crew card holders, I would have bought it there and then, no hesitancy, none!
