I ordered the charcoal and I received navy blue. That's not so bad, but I had to mention it becauseI can use navy blue for sure. This jacket is my style, but (as with the photo on the TSC site) the sleeves are way too long and there is a zipper at the cuff so it can't just be rolled up. I'm feeling a little disappointed about it, and am not sure whether I will keep it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Well....Free shipping...so I came back and tried a size down to an 8 and wow. It was the size I needed all along and I am so glad I did re-order. Fit great and the price was even better this time too. Thanks so much for this quality line.
Really nice look
I am giving this jacket a five because the material, colour and the style are right on. I have to say though that it is not quite right for my tall slimmish frame. Ordered my regular size ten and its great in the shoulders and chest but a little too loose at the waist and hips so it hangs a bit too much on me..... so I have to send it back.... but it is so edgy and cool that I hate to do it. On a curvy girl this would be the look that makes your figure. In the video, you can see Cathy in the slate grey is a beautiful close curvy fit but it is very roomy on the other gal and the gal in the above still shot, though all three usually wear the same size. Oh and cut of the upper arm is really comfortable for ease of movement and the fit is more generous and is adjustable for a fuller waist.
Unique and exquisite!
I was really looking forward to receiving this jacket. It looked great on air and I really liked how the style was so unique. Unfortunately, it was WAY too BIG on me, so with great hesitation, I had to send it back. The feel of the garment was extremely nice; it's just too bad it didn't come in a smaller size. If I could give one suggestion, I would love to see XS (size 4) in Franco Mirabelli's line. I find the size 6 is just a little too big …but I LOVE his style. I am still going to give this item a 5 star! The quality and feel of the garment is amazing! I would highly recommend it for those who are a true size 6. You will fall in love with it.
