Quality product
Great quality in terms of construction and fabric, excellent price (on sale!) and a good true red colour. Love this and looking forward to wearing it when winter comes to sunny SA. One hardly ever needs a heavy overcoat in our mild climate and this is the perfect item to throw on as an extra layer that will keep out the chill without adding masses of bulk. Very happy with my purchase.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great everyday tote
This bag is exactly what I've been looking for - the perfect tote for everday use. Not so big you look like you're carrying an overnight bag, but big enough to fit all the essentials for work plus a few items of shopping if you need to pick them up after the day's done, or an evening clutch bag if you are going straight out after work. Good quality for the price (as usual with Madewell) and sturdy construction. Shoulder strap the perfect length and doesn't slide off because it's made of canvas. My one gripe is that the leather of the handles is a little bit orangey and cheap-looking, but I'm sure it'll darken a bit with use. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Summer staple
Great fabric, well made, well cut: all typical characteristics of a Madewell item. This is going to be my most-worn jacket this coming summer, I can tell. Perfect for throwing on over a floaty maxidress or pretty top, just to mix my look up a bit...

Just the right slouch
I was expecting this jacket to be made of the fairly stiff cotton - almost canvas - fabric that I tend to associate with the military surplus jackets that this style is most reminiscent of. In fact the fabric is soft, light, almost silky in feel (though not at all shiny!) and this gives it a most attractive element of easy slouchiness that's really appealing. It's also not too heavy, ideal for throwing over a summer dress or light top on a cool summer evening. Good finishes and detailing too.
