This is a close fit denim jacket, that's very chic and comfortable. I like my denim jackets fitted, and given I have a tailored J.Crew jacket in 00P that's a little roomy, I tried the XXXSP in this. I couldn't move my arms! I ended up exchanging for the XSP, so two sizes up. It's perfect. The sleeves are slightly short and the jacket sits on my waist, but I like it. For ref I'm 5'1, 101 lb. Thank you for a very painless return/exchange process J.Crew.

It fits! And when it fits this well, you can wear it with anything. My 80s denim jacket never, ever fit - the waist hit too low, the sleeves were too long, because it wasn't cut for petites. This jacket fills some emotional void I've suffered for 25 years.
I'm 5'4", 135 lbs, with thick arms. I normally wear a petite 8 in tops, a 4-6 in regular sizes. For this jacket, I took a petite M, and it's perfect. I can button the buttons and wear a long sleeved shirt under it, but is still just snug enough to look tough.
I dinged it one star due to an unfortunate bleach mark on a front pocket that bothers me. However, I was too much in love to send it back and wait for another.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jade too skinny arms
I am 5'2", 105. I wear petite xs. I ordered my usual size. The body fits well. The length of the jacket is perfect. But arms are so tight, I couldn't even bend my arms. I have skinny arms. I don't get it - who could wear this? I do not want a size bigger as the shoulder will be too wide. The jacket looks very cute but totally impractical with these arms. I am returning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sharpnote Very cute, but arms are short and tight
I love the look of this jacket, first and foremost. It looks much better in person
However, I'm exchanging for a regular size because the arms were too short and tight on the petite M for me. I never have issues with sleeves being too short! Also, the chest was tight. (Yes, I did check the size chart before ordering.)
For reference, I'm 5'2" and wear a 4-6 and S in regular sizes, and M in petite. I don't understand how the petite M in this jacket is so small, but the "semi-fitted" petite M blouse that I also ordered was so huge in the bust like a basketball jersey! It's like J.Crew made these petite M clothes for differently sized people.

I am petite 5ft. 1'. I usually buy extra small in tops, I go this in a small. The fit was exact, and perfect for the intended purpose. I would have gotten a medium if I intended to layer. I got this jacket because of the wash, it was a little different from the usual. I do not regret my purchase.
