The petite downtown field jacket

The petite downtown field jacket is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest jacket I purchased this jacket in the Sand color. It's beautiful. Order a size up. I'm 5'2, 122lbs, usually wear a regular XS or petite S. The petite S was too narrow in the shoulders so I returned it for a petite M and it fits well. I've never worn a petite M in anything else, so I was surprised how small this ran. I also tried on a regular XS and S in the store and those didn't work either. The XS was too fitted for a jacket. The S fit well in the body but the arms were too long. The reg S and the petite M are very similar in the body, it's just the arm lengths are different. Hope this helps someone when ordering. It was worth it trying on various sizes to get this right, because it's so darn cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I Wanted in a Fall Jacket... I've wanted a J. Crew downtown field jacket for three years now, but one thing or another kept me from buying one. They're really reasonably priced this year if you catch the right sale though, so I broke down and impulse bought the black one. I'm glad I did! The material is sturdy without being to stiff, so it feels like it will do a nice job keeping out the chilly weather when paired with a sweater. It's a pretty shade of black also. The sizing runs a bit small, but that seems to be the case with J. Crew's latest outerwear styles. I'm 5'00" exactly, 90 lbs, 32 A/B, and the petite XS fits me well. The petite XXS would have been too snug through the shoulders and armholes to fit a sweater. The sleeves come down just past my wrists, which is perfect for a jacket, and turning back the cuffs halfway would show off a colored shirtsleeve nicely. The bottom hits exactly where I wanted, right at the top of my hips. If you're on the fence about this ladies, go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, but size up! Had my eye on this jacket for a while and finally pulled the trigger when the navy color was on sale. I'm 5'3" 106lbs, overall petite, and ordered a PS. While an XS would've fit, it would not accommodate a sweater underneath. For reference, I have two of the down vests in PXS that fit nicely. Happy shopping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple for your closet! I LOVE THIS JACKET! I am 5'4" 128lbs, athletic build and typically wear small. I had to try different sizes and ended with the petite medium. The jacket is unlined and hass a little give. The arms and shoulders run small/tight. I sized up to the petite medium to move comfortably in the arms and shoulders. If you plan to have thicker layers, I would buy a bigger size to have room. I am planning to have a tshirt/light layer underneath. It is a go to item that has nice lines to finish an outfit. Classic and good staple for your closet. Does not wrinkle so great to pack for a trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weight I am 5'3" , close to 130 lbs, and I have broad shoulders. I ordered the petite medium to be able to wear some layers.. The sleeve length is perfect, and I like the snaps around the waist. I like the way it fits. I actually have this in both the light beige and dark greenish color, bought on sale, and I am very happy that I purchased. Timeless buys
