Beautiful but SMALL
I love this blazer, unfortunately it is just cut so small. I am 5'8", 128lbs, 34B wear 27 jeans. I bought a 6 and 8 as I usually wear a 6 in blazers and after seeing reviews saying it was small I erred on the side of caution and bought both. Even the 8 was small across the bust and would not button easily. If I would have gone to the 10 the arms would have been too big. I am so disappointed. It is really beautifully cut but just on the small side.

amazing fit
i was debating either size 2 or 4 and got the 2 which is the right size. BUT i couldn't really buckle the jacket and the shoulder fits perfectly. i don't have broad shoulders to begin with. i don't like drowning in jackets so i picked my usual size and i usually don't like to wear one size too small clothes.

My favourite blazer!
I love everything about this blazer! I love the pop of colour, which will work in all seasons. I love the leopard lining, which is fun to turn out. I love the more relaxed fit, and it is pretty lightweight, so this is truly a piece I will wear all year. My favourite Smythe... I wear it even more than my black one!

love smythe
This is a great blazer, it has a drape to the fabric that I love. The red collar is a nice detail and I like the sleeve length as well.

The Perfect "Gray" Blazer
I purchased this Smythe blazer as a "gray" substitute. I didn't want a solid gray blazer, as solid gray tends to look pretty casual. The marble blend is perfect because it registers as a gray without the casual feel of solid gray. Sizing note: Smythe runs SMALL so size UP. I'm normally a solid size 6 (due to my broad shoulders) in blazers and went with a size 8 for this jacket. I definitely made the right decision.

Love!
This coat is so beautiful! Quality is top notch. I find SMYTHE runs a bit small so I sized up one size and it fits me like it does the model

Classic F/W Blazer
I was hesitant about purchasing this blazer because of the price. However, the construction was worth every penny. The blazer was on the heavier side, so it could definitely be worn in place of a jacket during the cooler months or layered in winter. If you're big on blazers, as I am, then I strongly encourage you to invest in the piece. Keep in mind: the blazer ran small. I am normally a solid size 6 in Helmut Lang and Theory blazers. In Smythe, I am a size 8.

great cut!
1) Sizing: I'm typically a 6-8 at most labels. I heard Smythe runs small and ordered both the 6-8. The 6 was a great fit but I also don't expect to wear a ton under this as it is a blazer, not a coat, to me. 2) Fabric: It's scratchier looking than I expected. It would've been nice if they had it in a smoother material. 3) Price: I think the price is insane. 4) Fit: The fit is amazing and is definitely an investment piece/attention getter. It will pull together almost anything. I'm a petite and was happy that the sleeves weren't too long.

Love it!
My first Smythe blazer, and I'm hooked. Arrived so quickly... beautiful Smythe fit. Light and amazing for Spring. Paired it with plum and black to roll it into Fall. I am about a 6 (S/M in most things) up top and ordered a size 8. Perfect fit. Only downside? Front button fell off the first time I wore it. Reinforce them before wearing! Will not be my last blazer from this awesome Canadian company!!

Amazing
Smythe blazers run small, so be sure to order a size up! I am always a size 4 and buy size 6 in smythe. Expensive yes, but such beautiful tailoring and classic bodies, you will have these forever!

Edgy but classic.
I ordered this in a 4 and it fit me perfectly considering I wasn't really planning to button it. It's a great way to dress up any black bottoms or denim.... The lace fabric keeps it from looking like a waiter's jacket and the cut and black pocket flaps give it a nice edge.

An Investment Piece but Overpowering
In my mind this is an investment piece as it's a classic and won't go out of style. However, for someone with a somewhat smaller frame - I am 5'5" and 111 lbs - and smaller shoulders, the sharp shoulders and padding of the vest are a bit overpowering. I am usually a size 2 but in all SMYTHE items, outerwear, blazers and vests, I am a size 4. I also feel very formal wearing this piece although the model in the picture looks great in her casual look. I am going to relegate this piece for going out.

Very Stylish
I adore this vest. It is beautifully made and goes perfect with jeans or short skirts. This definitely worth the price because it may have a lot of applications (office, restaurant, party, shopping, city walking etc.), it is classic and can make each outfit more "serious". As for the size: I'm 86-69-94 and have it in size 2. It looks exactly as 4-th on the model :). So you may easily go a size down.
