LOVE the jacket - but it runs a bit big!
I am usually always a medium in Free People jackets but I found this to be a bit boxy. I wanted it to fit like the first image of the gal in the washed black image -- but in real life - it was rather boxy and not as tapered / tailored as I like. (Hence the
Perfect forever jacket
This is a fantastic jacket. Things tend to be hit and miss with size at FP so I was a bit worried about sizing and how short it might be, as well as quality. This is such a great jacket for the price--it's a steal I think for what it costs at full price. The fabric is perfect-thick but still flexible. Like another poster mentioned, the shoulder detail is sequin which gives so much depth to the jacket. The jacket is cropped slightly but it hits in between my waist and hips. When I close it with all the buttons, it fits perfectly around my chest (I am a C cup). Honestly this is just such a great jacket and I know I will have this for years.
Drove an hour to try on!
And I'm glad I did try it on first. So first of all, the buttons are insanely hard to undo. It took me about 3-4 to undo them to try it on so I didn't bother to to do them up on me to see how it looked. The coat is otherwise made well of heavy duty cotton. The sleeves are perfectly long and it's not short waisted, so all you tall girls will be able to wear this one. What made me decide against this otherwise cool looking jacket was the decorative beading on the lapels. That cheapened the look and was distracting to my face. I thought of removing it, but that's too much work.
I was hesitant to get this jacket because it looked really short on the models and I wasn't sure if it would be flattering on me considering I am curvy. Also, in the first pic, the band on the inside looks maroon, which i really liked, whereas in the other pics it looks bright red, which I wasn't as taken with. But I had to try it, ordered the large and am so happy I went for it. It is short, but not as short as I expected, and the fit is perfect and looks very nice. The inside trim is more of the maroon color than the red, which I was pleasantly surprised with. The shoulders bars are sequin-like, not fabric as i expected. Another added bonus. I also ordered the pin pinjured and another military pin FreePeople sells and they work great.
Just love this jacket!
I just received my Shrunken Military jacket in faded black. I love it!!!!!!!!! Another FP success. I ordered it in large. Some items at FP run a little small for me. This fits perfect! Military style is my fave. In the cooler weather everything I wear has a military flavor, this jacket is perfect for the look I love.
