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!!
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

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!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected
