Mid-length painted suede jacket with belled cuffs, side slits, and beaded fringe detail. Lined to natural waist.
I thought a very long time about this jacket because i would never dream of spending this much $ on something. But once i put it on, it was like a silk dream…soft, luxurious, like your favorite blanket you don't want to get out from under. The fit is perfect as far as sleeve length, waist, and length just past the booty (if you have a large chest though, you may not be able to tie the top tie closed fully…not a biggie for how this will usually be worn). The draping on it lays just right. I didn't even have to think twice about putting this baby on a cushioned hanger in my coat closet. For reference : I am 5'7', 117 lbs, 32D, wear xs in all FP clothing and 25-26 in FP jeans. I ordered the XS. Def zero room for a sweater or anything of substance underneath, so size up if you want it to bundle up with it.
An exquisite piece of clothing, absolutely love it! The suede is very thin and has a luxurious feel to it. (Plus that lovely "new-suede-smell"...) Discreet but gorgeous details. As is descbribed in other reviews, this jacket really feels more like a kind of sweater than an outdoor garment. Anyhow, I'm very happy with this purchase (even though it dug a pretty deep hole in my wallet).
Firstly I had a very difficult time justifying such an expensive piece. But, I actually had gift cards after returning some things I haven't worn. I fell in love with this jacket online and now that I opened my shipment today from Free People I am in true love with this Jacket. It's rust not red. And is the most beautiful, beautiful unique piece I have. !!!!! I am 5'6'' and my bust is 38 c/d depending on the style of bra. (just fyi) I put the jacket on and is more of a "light sweater" I imagined it being much heavier. It's like a chamois type material. Lightweight but, so gorgeous! I am a small in most free people garments and I was undecided but, after calling to place my order and talking to the free people rep decided small would be the best choice. It's a "perfect fit" I am thrilled. The jacket looks more like the last photo. It's a time piece!
This jacket is the most beautiful, carefree, flowing, gorgeous accessory piece I have EVER purchased from Free People! For anyone thinking about whether or not to buy it, don't. It's totally worth the price in it's uniqueness alone. It arrived EXACTLY AS SHOWN on the model in the studio images. the exact fit, color, length, sleeve length, painted details, collar beaded details, etc... it's just gorgeous!!! It is not meant to be a warm jacket, and the lining is very very thin - much like some of the FP built-in slips, but that part doesn't matter, because the outside is why I bought it. WOW WOW WOW is all I can say...it's just stunning!!! It definitely runs a tad small, however, so if you wear a typical FP small or medium, I would stay to your size - just knowing that you will not be able to layer much under it. I don't plan to layer under this personally...and it's so awesome (and literally light enough) that it can be worn during cooler summer nights too!!! Think of it as a very very soft, flexible, leather cardigan that is about the same in weight as a chamois. AMAZING JACKET - and I am SO HAPPY I spent the money!!!
