Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbql Almost perfect for travel
My go-to color for travel is chocolate brown, not black. The shitake blends beautifully with my chocolate skirts & slacks, as well as multi-colored tops. The style is current, yet classic. The fabric wrinkles a little during long flights, but the wrinkles relax later. What would make it perfect is an inside security pocket. This jacket is also easy to dress up or down. I really wish it would be brought back each season. If it was still available in my size, I'd order a second one now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ursi Very good travel jacket
Fits very well and I like the fabric a lot.
Good color, will look excellent when teamed with black slacks and top.
Good look when open but even better when worn closed - like the off center zipper arrangement. A very versatile item for my closet that will travel well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Veauxie Unusual, functional and fun
I love when JJill throws something unusual into the mix along with the normal, straighforward, simple designs. This jacket has a big personality with its asymetry but it's not gimmicky or trying to be edgy. The mid-weight fabric is very soft and makes it a good spring & fall garment. I got it in XL so I'll be able to wear heavy layers (sweaters) but wearing it unzipped with tighter layers like tee shirts will make it really versatile. The camel/espresso color is elegant and more interesting than the black. It's ALWAYS nice to get pockets on outerwear, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trudy11 Simple, good weight
Bought the black in size M and it fit. However, in shiitake the size M seemed to swallow me, so I exchanged it for size S, which I will keep. The knit is substantial, so it should add warmth. The look zipped up is Far Eastern--simple, clean lines. Very nice jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissEllie Perfect for travel
Decided I would need a jacket for a trip I will be taking. Ordered the jacket on line and was concerned that it wouldn't be the right thing. Was I wrong! It will be perfect. Will be great for sightseeing and dressier events. I couldn't be more pleased!! I love J.Jill!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KayB nice addition to my wardrobe
got this jacket for an upcoming trip to Italy in the Fall. Fits well, seems to be a good weight overall - not too heavy a knit. looks good zipped or unzipped; also I found it has pockets on the side seams

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cerrana Love this!
This jacket is awesome! Lovely material, design and construction. Just gorgeous. It is a bit "boxy" but that is what makes it stand out - architectural type design features. Looks great on. Bought in both colors. For those who have purchased from JJILL over the years, this jacket has the historical quality that is sometimes hit or miss now (e.g., cashmere has become thinner etc.). The quality is outstanding on this "high low" jacket.
