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.

Doesn't compare to wool version!
Contrary to popular belief, this blazer runs TRUE TO SIZE. I have always been a size 2 in blazers but ordered a size 4 in the wool version as I kept hearing the blazer ran very small. BIG MISTAKE! The size 4 fit very baggy while the size 2 fit like a glove. I was disappointed when my blazer arrived because though the size and fit were perfect, the material looked and felt SO CHEAP. I've seen and felt the wool version of the Smythe One Button Blazer and it looks so gorgeous, expensive, and of very high quality. I definitely recommend passing up on the viscose version of the blazer and try to get the wool one!

Great jacket
I had both wool jacket from Saks and this one from Shopbop Even though I appreciate wool etc I definetly prefer color of the acetate one. I sent back wool jacket; it was just too dark, office like attire I am not sure which Kate Middelton had but it seems that color just like the one from Shopbop I am 110 lb 34 D had to order size 8 Overall I love this jacket

Not as expected
The quality and colour of this navy blazer was disappointing, and certainly does not compare to the same style blazer in wool. Wasn't worth the price tag in my opinion so I sent it back.

Definitely Size UP Ladies!
Great classic jacket with a twist (the back cutout ;-) I also have it in black linen and hope to be wearing both for many, many years to come. But you MUST size up as Smythe runs about at least 1 maybe even 2 sizes small depending on your build. Also, FWIW, I think this fabric blend looks better than the linen.

Not the color Kate wore
First off, this is not the same color of Navy that Kate wore - it is far too royal blue and does not match the JBrand navy twill skinnies. Second,it runs about a half size small. I'm 5"5", 32D and the size 4 has some room in the bust but fits when buttoned up. I think the size 2 would ave been too snug. The material does not appear as expensive as I would have liked given the price tag and the buttons are a bit cheap too- too fake gold and way too light weight. While I'll need to find a nice pair of light jeans to wear with this, I am keeping it given the flattering fit and inability to get he expensive customs charges refunded. So if your expecting a dark navy, get the wool version instead.

Gorgeous!
Love this blazer! Fits beautifully, and the collar detail keeps it from being just a stuffy navy blue blazer. Highly recommended investment...

Amazing
The blazer is great in all ways. The material (wool) is soft yet keeps its shape. it's dressy just a tiny bit, but also great for everyday wear with jeans and ballet flats. I think I wont wear any of my other blazers anymore.

My guy about fell off his chair
I walked out in this blazer over the ivory Alice & Olivia Tulip Draped Ivory dress. Talk about a scalding hot professional look. The blue is true sky and it is very fitted but shows off the dress. Looks equally as good with my new Nicole Miller navy lace stretch skirt. This fits snug. If you are an 8-10, get the 10. With the cut away it is very forgiving around the hip area and hugs a little waist. All I can say is that I cant beleive I bought a smythe on sale and It is stunning!!!!

Luv!
Have always been a fan of Smythe and this one doesn't disappoint! It's become my go to jacket. Instant style with jeans and T shirt. Also great with dresses.

Fantastic quality
This is a great jacket. Sleeves are a little long but otherwise fits true to size. The wool is great quality and the weight and length of the jacket is perfect for a Sydney winter.

Ordered a size 6 and still too cropped
Great styling but this cut on my long, tall body seemed awkward and forced.

tuxedo jacket close no cigar.
i expected to LOVE this smythe jacket but it's a near miss and very ordinary! the fabric is at best average. in addition it runs large in the shoulders and is on the long side. sadly i'm returning this jacket...it does not have the easy cool look it appears to in the picture. the drape is just ok...smythe is better than this! i adore smythe just NOT this jacket!

STUNNING
Have received such positive comments. Well made and styled. A very open weave almost like hessian. Everyone says SMYTHE runs small but I think its just tailored by design. I bought a size 4 and I am a UK 6 and I think this is correct sizing.
