Weird fit
I really want to like this jacket, but it fits wonderfully in the shoulders and back and is tiny in the front. There's no way I can button it, so there's no way I can keep it. It's a shame, it's hard to find quality women's blazers.

Lots of little problems
The item I most look forward to happens to be the biggest disappointment. I'm usually a size 0 but since this blazer is supposed to run small, I ordered the size 2 and it fits. While the top part of the blazer fits very well, the back of the bottom part sticks out and the sleeves are at least 2 inches too long even though my arms are of average length (if not slightly longer). In addition, the way the shoulders are padded is a little old fashioned and the cut of the lapel isn't very flattering. I have another blazer with a similar back detail where the middle portion is shorter, but that one has a pair of real vents which makes the fit more forgiving and sophisticated whereas this one is stitched down. All these little issues and the quality of the fabric make the blazer way too expensive for what it is, so I'm returning it.

The BEST Blazer
I was skeptical that this blazer would live up to the hype. But after trying several others by premium brands including Theory, Rag & Bone, and Zadig & Voltaire, I decided on this one. The first size 2 I got fit perfectly in the shoulders and arms, but I could barely button it. However, the size 4 was definitely too big and would have required extensive tailoring. (Size 2 in every other model of Smythe blazer was too large, especially the patch pocket style). But after trying all the others, I decided to give the size 2 another try -- and the second one I got fit just perfect! I was able to button it (they must vary ever so slightly in sizing). So, my message to you -- if the first one you try doesn't fit perfectly, order a second! The quality and fit of this blazer is so much better than literally everything else out there that once I tried it, I couldn't go with another brand.

Who's that girl?!
I have submitted a detailed review of the sizing, in the "camel" version of this jacket. I hope it helps you. Now I will address the exquisite quality. I slipped this on, looked in the mirror and immediately thought, "B***!". Yes, people are going to hate you when they see you rocking this puppy.If you are fortunate enough to be compatible with the size specs, (me: size 0 or 2 in J Crew, size 4 in this, more of a junior than a missy body). This with a pair of jeans and sexy shoes, epitomizes "casual chic". It can also be worn as work wear with a dress..a certain Duchess has been doing just that for several years now in her day job. I can't afford it, but I'll sell the farm if I have to. My heart skipped a beat when I saw it in person. give it a try, ShopBop has a very generous return policy. Don't blame me if you buy two!

Stunning, head turning style if it fits
There seems to be some debate about fit on this item, so maybe I can help elucidate for those considering. First of all, it is stunning. the camel color is much , much richer than it appears on your monitor. Gold buttons are totally luxe. It fits me perfectly. I had hesitations about paying this much for a blazer (normally I'm a J Crew sale kind of girl), but the cut in the back really intrigued me. For my body type, it was as flattering as anything I've ever worn in my life. I am 5'4", 105 lbs, it is hard to say a size. I wear 0 or 2 from Jcrew. I think 34c/d..I am lazy and buy stretch bras, sorry. Often I need to shop in junior stores for jeans. I am short waisted, but not petite. So, although I can u/s the complaints about "long arms" on this jacket, it works perfectly for me in size 4. Remember Canadian sizes are totally different from US or Euro. If you are long waisted, or truly petite, this might not be the style for you. It is worth a try because the style is a showstopper.

Stunning Blazer
This is a stunning blazer! I own several Smythe blazers but this one is probably my favorite. I love how the classic gingham print has a bit of an edgy style with a solid panel/stripe on the side. The fit is AMAZING! I'm typically a size 0 or XS but wear a size 2 when it comes to Smythe. I highly recommend this blazer! Also, love Shopbop! Great clothes, great service, and super fast shipping!

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.

Impeccable
Smythe is such a quality brand. This piece is professional enough for work, with an edge of attitude. Playful and fun striped sleeves. Fits nicely. I am always a 6 in Smythe, and this blazer fits as expected.

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.

Another Fab Blazer from Smythe!
Adorable and versatile with the removable hoodie accent and cuffs. As with most Smythe products, the fit is small...I am usually 4-6 but take the 8 in Smythe. Quality is outstanding.
