Rated 5 out of 5 by Patla Love this jacket
I almost didn't buy this jacket because of some of the reviews, but I'm so glad I did. The linen is a great quality and the style is classic and very comfortable. It looks boxy in the picture, but after you've worn it it drapes beautifully. I live in the south and only wear cotton or linen when it's warm (which basically is 9 months out of the year) so this is perfect. It looks great over a simple dress or slim ankle pants and a tank. Add a statement necklace and you're ready to go anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by meadowlark Jacket is nicely stitched, unstructured and shirttail longer hem in back
I bought this in white and black. Love the white!!!! The black linen was shiny as if it had been pressed with too hot an iron. I am returning it. I will be wearing the white jacket frequently this summer. At the sale price I may order another white jacket. I am 5 foot 7 inches and 127 pounds. I like my clothing a little loose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CSTX Not at all what I expected
I had read the online reviews for this jacket and looked forward to adding it to my collection. However, it did not meet expectations at all. It does not drape well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Capid loose jacket
This jacket will be fine to carry along to a restaurant where the AC is blasting in the summer time. It is very loose fitting and does not fasten, but it is the type of summer jacket I need to buy every couple of years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by soprofess Too big, too boxy
I really wanted to like this light jacket and I think it looks great in the picture. But it was very unflattering on me, with a boxy and bulky shape. It looked balloon-ish, not drapey. I am sorry to have to return this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheryl915 GREAT JACKET!
I bought two of these jackets, one black and one white - the oversize relaxed look is great. Love how it fits, especially the length. I also love the quality of the linen - substantial yet drapey enough. Will wear with the long linen J Jill dresses I bought a couple of seasons ago, plus with the J Jill linen pants. Love J Jill linen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gloria409 Very Useful Summer Jacket
Even in summer you might need a jacket, especially if it is of a good weight, worn open and breezy but giving you that extra layer for an air-conditioned office or after the sun sets on a patio. I love linen and this jacket is made of a fine quality linen. Linen breathes in the warm weather so it doesn't trap the heat. This jacket is open in the front to assist in movement of the air and I found it fits loosely and flows over my body in a flattering way. It goes perfectly with white linen pants if I want a formal look, and I can use it in so many places, whether at work or over jeans or out in the evening. And linen is a workhorse of fabrics. It can bounce back from most things including spills, and look as good as new. I am really pleased with the linen in this jacket and the style is timeless. It doesn't require constant ironing in my opinion. It's part of the charm that linen wrinkles but this jacket is soft and the wrinkles are soft. It falls to a good length to flatter my curves. I know it is going to be in my summer wardrobe for years. It feels good, it looks good, it matches everything. I love it.
