One fine blazer for refined taste
I had no idea how desirable this blazer was! I luckily just walked into my local HR after they had just hanged up a new shipment of every size. I tried on a 2 since it looked tiny on the hanger. I'm tiny myself at 5' and 95lbs. The blazer looks amazing on and I even have room for a thin sweater underneath. I love the structured slightly exaggerated shoulders and the nip in at the waist when it's buttoned up (buttons are gorgeous). I decided to buy it when I turned sideways and saw that it gave me a sexy booty! Unfortunately the sleeves are several inches too long which is an easy fix but it means I'll loose the lovely button holes (that's how you can tell if a blazer is finely made). Best part, it was $550 Canadian regular price since it's made in Canada!

Too long for me
I agree with other reviewers that the cut of this jacket is beautiful, and the fabric is high quality. It also sized as described (i.e., I am usually a 0 but the size 2 fit like a 0). I returned it because I am 5'2" and the sleeves were too long (tough to hem with the functional buttonholes) and the length of the jacket too long for me. I kept the other one-button Smythe jacket I ordered from this site that was a shorter style and has "bracelet sleeves". It fits perfectly.

Perfect fit & Fabulous cutting
I love this blazer because of the flattering cut. The nipped in waist and shoulders made my upper body looked slim. I'm 1.7m, the length of the blazer is just slightly above my hips. The length of the sleeves is exactly at the top of my hand. I'm able to button up with a 26 inch waist and 32 inch bust. I bought this blazer to be worn with only a camisole underneath. With a less fitted work shirt, I think it'd be a less comfortable fit. Therefore, I would suggest that one take a size up if you want to wear this blazer over a top or dress that's not fitted. Buy this blazer in a size that will fit your daily wardrobe.

Impeccable!
Another amazing Smythe classic! Fabric is incredible - texture and colors - will work with everything! Impeccable tailoring and fit. I know Smythe tends to fit very small lately so I sized up accordingly to a 12. (I am 6ft, 150lbs).

Another great Smythe
Love this jacket. Not as unique as some of the other Smythe jackets this season, but timeless and a great cut. I am sometimes a 4 and sometimes a 6 in Smythe. I bought the 4 and it is a little snug but i think it shows off the fit better so I kept the 4.

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).

always perfect Smythe
I have purchased many Smythe blazers and this purchase was as lovely as all the others. Smythe is so detailed and fits like a glove. The fabrics used are always top of the line and this beautiful blazer is no exception. It is very light weight and can be worn pretty much year round. It is a beautiful classic.

fit. fit. fit.
So I read the reviews and ordered a size up to a 10. I am usually an 8. I am a 36DD. The fit in the shoulders and arms is perfect but buttoning the gold button just under the bust area is a no go for me. I am debating going up to a 12 and or just keeping it because everything else works. When you have a larger bust you just get accustomed to things not fitting ideally across the chest area. With that, the Jackets (i ordered a blue and black- because there was a limited amount) are beautifully made, light weight and super chic!

Size Up!
I am usually a size 6 and ordered the size 8 - fit was perfect. It is a well cut and structured blazer. The highlight feature for me was also it's downside. The unusual back cut out actually flared out on the ends showing the white (why white?) lining of the Black blazer. The area sat better with the button done up but when worn opened, it really flared out. The fabric was quite thin and when held up against light/sun, you could see so much light filtering through. I did not feel the price warranted the overall look of the jacket. Sadly, I felt compelled to return it.
