Nice Chanel-style jacket
I got this jacket in green as the black was unavailable in my size. I haven't worn it yet but one button already fell off, so I sewed it back on, imagine if I had worn it and lost it? JR has to watch out for quality of button sewing on her jackets as I just lost another button on another jacket of hers which I've only worn twice!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

J Rivers Shimmering long sleeve Jacket

Perfect This Time
I have ordered a number of JR's jackets, and like others, had very little luck with the fit. With several of her designs, the back elastic caused the jacket to puff out in the back and be 1-2 inches shorter in the back versus the front. It has stumped me, for this is a woman who's personal flair for her design taste in dressing & accessorizing is impeccable. Her look is classic, sophisticated, and elegant. I want the same. I quite like the Channel or St. John style that this piece interprets. It represents all the above good qualities. This jacket has that same touch to it with the design cut, the frayed edging, pocket placement, length, etc. I ordered the black in a medium, which is my usual size in most designs. This time I truly lucked out, and the jacket is a perfect fit. It fits as if tailor-made. And no back elastic so it hangs beautiful. I matched it with the sleeveless black turtleneck, and a black dress slack or pencil skirt. It looked like it should have, and I was very pleased. The fabric is a bit scratchy due to the lurex thread running through, not exactly a high-end fabric either, but wearing the turtleneck solved that. The only thing I was unsure of was the choice of the large buttons, which tends to be the trend now. It does take the jacket to a more casual style. I thought of replacing them with a more evening, smaller crystal button which would make it more evening formal. Since I can't decide, and with the price of these type of buttons, I will wear it as is for I know I will get more wear of it with a plainer button. This time for me it was money well spent.
No One Does Jackets Like Joan
Contrary to the other reviewers, I find my size 10 a perfect fit. I bought the evergreen and it's a really beautiful combination of forest green and teal. Lovely basket weave fabric with a surprise little metallic thread running through it - not over the top - perfectly understated. Fringed edging, dyed to match buttons, and lower working pockets all show an attention to detail that I find amazing - I have sewn for years and very much appreciate these little details. I have worn it twice so far and strangers stop me to compliment me on it. Completely elegant but equally works with jeans or a dress/skirt. Thank you Joan for your impeccable taste.

Nice jacket but.....
from Stouffville, Ontario
I don't understand why sizes change, even with the same collection. With Jaon River Collection I would get a Large in tops and a Medium in a bottom. I ordered Large in this Jacket and it's too small. It will be returned. Can't be bothered to re-order.
