Rated 4 out of 5 by kjd67 Runs small through shoulders
This is a beautiful blazer, but the velvet is bulkier than the wool in this style, resulting in it being too tight through the shoulders for me in my usual size 2. The body is comparable in size to the wool version so buying a larger size would not be an option for me. Too bad - the bronzed brown, which is a really rich autumn rust color, would have been a great addition to my fall wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILoveClothes Plush and Beautiful
I ordered the Forest Shadow jacket and the color is sublime!!!! It is a forest green with an interesting undertone of blue that makes for a shimmery, lovely and unique color. The jacket is plush and thick. I ordered one size up and am glad I did as it is tailored and fitted. The item was packed in such a way that the sleeves are very wrinkled. J Crew ships the item on a hanger and pads the hangar with tissue that trails down the inside of the sleeve which is then folded over. I think this packing decision results in a wrinkled item. I will have to carefully iron it before wearing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VelvetBlaze Nice, heavy blazer. Waist eraser.
I do really like this blazer and I'll be keeping it, but I find that it erases the waist. It's a very boxy, boyish fit and the arms a bit short as well. However, I love a velvet blazer and the green/teal color of it is great. I wear it with skinny trousers and riding boots and feel like I need to bring a riding crop with me to the office.

I bought both the navy and the black velvet boyfriend jackets and love them. The fabric is luxe and heavy - all I'll need for winter in Northern CA. I plan to wear them with striped tees, cotton shirts and loafers for a casual look - then cashmere sweaters or silk shirts and pumps for a dressier look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hepatocyte Nice fitted jacket
This jacket fits very well in my usual Schoolboy Blazer size (6). Not sure what other reviewers are talking about with the shoulders. I am 5'8" 140lbs. I also ordered the 8 (because of other reviews) but found that it was too loose in the waist (not shapely). This is great with just a tee shirt or with a blouse underneath. Goes well with jeans and nice enough to wear to work. The blue is a great color - very deep and rich, like midnight blue more than a typical navy blue.
