scratchy fabric not a winner
from Halifax (Nova Scotia)
This is a 'change your mind' review. The scratchy fabric makes the jacket uncomfortable to wear. Wearing a substantial turtleneck solves this but then the jacket becomes a bit snug through the shoulders and chest. I believe I will put it in the charity clothing collection bin at the top of my street.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Lovely but not for me
By Purple Orchid
from Ottawa (Ontario)
Purchased in blue and red. Beautiful and substantial but too snug around the shoulders and chest, couldn't close the jacket on a size 16, plus too short even with a short torso. I've purchased and kept other JR jackets but sadly returned both. Jacket might work for slimmer frames.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very classy and stylish
from Cornwall Ontario
I love the styling and look (got red and black) but as another reviewer said, you can't wear it on your neck without fabric in between, it's very scratchy. No other issues, very nice!
very nice jacket
Very attractive and versatile jacket. I really appreciate the numbered as opposed to letter sizing. I generally haven't been able to wear JR's jackets because the medium is too large and the small too small. Size 10 hits the sweet spot in between and fits great. The blue looks smart with indigo jeans, and so is great for dressing up or dressing down.
from Toronto, Ontario
This is one beautiful classic jacket. Received this gorgeous garment in a lovely shade of red, the lurex sparkle is very nice and not over the top for me. There is not one adjustment I need to make, however, the jacket is a smaller fit than others I have received in the size 4. I can still comfortably wear a dress or blouse under the jacket. Impressive all the way, that is the reason I am giving this garment a 5-star. For an evening out I sure will feel well dressed in this glamourous jacket. Thanks Joan.
Great looking jacket!
from Fort Frances, Ontario
I bought 2 of these. I have the red and I also bought the brown one. They are very well made and quite beautiful from the fabric to the buttons! My only complaint is that the brown one fits a little snug across the shoulders compared to the red one. Although they are heavy looking, they are actually quite light weight. I plan on wearing these jackets a lot this year.
I purchased this jacket in blue as the brown/black was sold out and after seeing the blue on the show host was convinced. It is a very classy looking jacket and I plan to wear it first to my company's Christmas lunch before adding it to regular use in my wardrobe. I am used to purchasing by letter S,M,L etc rather than number so wasn't sure if I picked the right size a 6. It fits and buttons up the sleeves are snug but not restricting. I probably could have gone up to an 8. I realized later the size chart had finished garment size not body size.Just love the styling, fabric and buttons on this jacket. The thickness of the fabric and lining will make this a great fall winter jacket.

Runs Small...but nice textile!!!
from Fonthill, Ont
The fabrication in the jacket is quite lovely and nice quality for the price point. However, it is considerably smaller than Joan's other jackets. Size consistency when ordering on line is paramount. I will keep it... but it is a little snug!! Too bad...if it were fuller...a real winner!!!

This jacket did not disappoint. I purchased the brown/black, and it is very classy. It is indeed a classic, and it will NEVER go out of style!!! I usually order a large, but in Joan's line I always order medium. Once I heard Ann was wearing size 12 in this jacket, that's what I ordered. When doing up the jacket I would prefer a titch more, but it is doable. I believe the next size would have been way too big. So all in all, a good purchase. Nice fabrication and really smart.
Very chic jacket ...
I really like this jacket - beautifully made with its Parisian look and nod to CC. I ordered the black/gold in two sizes - 14 and 16. I usually - no, always! - wear a size L or 14 in Joan's jackets (and I have many) but something in the garment measurements on this one told me I'd better order 2 sizes, because I had a feeling the 14 would be snug - and I was right! Funny thing is, the 16 is a bit snug as well though wearable - in any event, the black/gold has sold out. I don't quite understand why this one fits more snugly than any of the other JR jackets I own ... hence my 4-star rating instead of the usual 5 I like to give ...
