Gorgeous, Beautifully Tailored Blazer
My measurements are 34-25-34 and I bought a size 4 as this blazer does run small ESPECIALLY in the shoulders and I don't even have broad shoulders. The blazer itself is tailored amazingly and feels/looks expensive. This is an investment piece worth purchasing! One thing that I will do is tailor it in the arms as I have thin arms and the blazer looks baggy in the sleeves. I own the original wool Duchess blazer in navy and I found worth buying it in black as well! You won't regret adding this to your wardrobe!!

Fantastic perfect black blazer
I am thrilled with this purchase! Finally I found the perfect jacket! I read the previous review and based the sizing on this and ordered the size 6. Usually I am a 4 - The fit, tailoring and fabric quality are amazing and far exceeded my expectations. This is a basic every wardrobe needs.

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.

Beautiful black blazer
This blazer is beautifully made but small. I purchased the racing stripe blazer in a size 6 but this one was a size 8. Both fit perfectly. For reference I am 5'7 and bust size 34 (small).

Bautiful blazer
I just received my blazer today and had to comment on how nice it is. I had a lot of trouble figuring out what size I needed after reading many reviews about this designer. I usually wear a 2 in Helmut Lang (wool blazers) sometimes a 4. After speaking to someone at Shopbop,she recommended a 6. Very happy I listened. It fits like a glove. Not much room to wear a whole lot under the blazer. For reference I am 5'7, bust size 34 (small).

Anytime Blazer
Too stiff for what I wanted. The buton part woudn't hang nicely like on the model, the 2 sides poked out in a strange way when it wasn't buttoned.

Very Weird Epaulets
Not a winter coat. Quality is okay. The only problem is the weird epaulets. I am thinking to remove them. Anyway, there are many options other than this coat for this price.

Hands down. Excellent jacket
Excellent jacket for every way! The only thing is it runs a little small, I am 5,4" 110lb and normally my size is small or 2 but size 2 in this jacket didn't fit me at all , I couldn't button it up ( and I happen to have a small chest) and the shoulders area was also tight. I am DEF getting size 4!

LOVE it!
I love this blazer, I read the reviews from other people before buying the blazer, everyone seems to think it runs smaller than normal, so I got size 2 and 4 just in case. I normally size XS and 0, and when I tried both on, size 4 is really big on me, and size 2 is just perfect. it s bit tight in the middle where the bottom is, but it fits really nicely. Can not wait to wear it.

Awsome blazer.
I have tried to get hold of this particular jacket/blazer in my size for a very long time only to have my size snatched from under my nose most of the time. I wanted the navy blue in wool, but after a while I was willing to settle for any color. I almost feel fortunate that my size was sold out all the time, because it gave me time to really dig into measurement details and reviews. The jacket I finally received is in black linen and a return item. I settled for size 6 although I am a size 4. This sharp tailored blazer sits beautifully in all the right places, but unfortunately has a very narrow waist if you want to close the jacket. I am a Petite person an very slim, but pure luck resulted in a size 6 that sits like made to measure. I am not a "black" person, but this jacket is beautiful! Can be dressed up and down, and probably the best buy I will do this year. A classic you can keep for years. My advice is to size up one full size. ShopBop should have better sizing info though.

best blazer!!!
I have four Smythe blazers and I think they are the best blazers. I love the tailoring. Smythe jackets make every women look the best and gives the shapes sometimes we need. I particulary liked this blazer because of the material (wool). It is very light and dressy. I also liked sleeves being narrower than the linen ones. I really liked how the narrower sleeves help my arms looking lean and long. I like the color navy, it is just beautiful blazer. They do run small so need to size up.

Great blazer!
Just got my blazer and absolutely happy with it! If only its wool jacket, its very light and great quality! I am 176 tall and have big breast, so i afraided that, blazer ll be too short in sleeves or too narrow in breast for me. But its just perfect! Highly recommended!
