I am glad that I ordered a much larger size than I normally wear (12-14) because the 16 is a good fit. I like the blazer but like other people that have made comments, the blazer was very wrinkled. It was stuffed into an envelope and the post office folded it in half to get it into the mailbox. I would rather pay extra for postage and get a better looking product. I am sure that nothing will change with Chadwick's process but hopefully this will be a heads up for others.
ordering one more
ordered this in red, about to order the saddle, have received many compliments. it's great!

NEED ONE IN MEDIUM GRAY!
I purchased this blazer in both the Black and the Saddle. I just love them. Have been watching for Chadwicks to carry it in a nice medium Gray.
Not your Christmas/Valentine Red
I have this jacket in black and love it. I had my grandmother to order me the red one for Christmas and to my surprise it is by far not red. It is more of a burgundy color. So, if you are looking for the Christmas/Valentine red, don't get this one. If it wouldn't cost me to return it I would return this because I already have a burgundy leather jacket.
Well, we finally gave up on getting the wrinkles out of the original blazer and returned it in exchange for another one. Definitely the second one was somewhat better and after an hour of pressing and massaging out the wrinkles it is wearable. However, I wore it about two hours and came home missing two of the three buttons!!! Sure wish Chadwicks could get it all together as they could have a really nice item in this jacket.....as it is, it is one expensive jacket as I will now have to hire a seamstress to try to match the buttons and sew them on securely.
Real nice "leather blazer". I ordered the black like five years ago. Nice texture, nice fit. I am considering another color.

petite sizing off
I ordered the saddle. It is darker than appears on-line. My usual petite size was snug in the bodice, and the sleeves were way too long. Added to that, it STUNK. I have a wardrobe of 25 leather blazers, I can deal with wrinkles, but never had such an odor problem.
Black leather jacket
Love the jacket. Fits well, comfortable & stylish. Don't put a nametag on it! I made that mistake and some of the leather finish flaked off.
I am so upset with this jacket. It is beautiful in color, fit and style but unwearable because of the poor packaging for shipment. It is so wrinkled and has button imprints on the lapel and two areas of the front. I went online and watched u-tube for how to get the wrinkles out but nothing works. I have tried hanging it in the shower area for the last week, we have tried to stretch the wrinkles out and I have ironed it several times through the brown paper bag....anyone know of anything I've missed? If I have to take it to a professional the price is too high and they won't guarantee they can get the wrinkles and impressions out.
Love the jacket. Color is very nice. They need to package this item better. Too many wrinkles even after letting it hang for a week. If I can't get the wrinkles out it will be unwearable
Jacket is good fit and nice, but packaged for delivery so poorly that I don't know if I will ever get the wrinkles out.
Saddle Is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Boy this blazer sizing is on right on. The fit of this blazer is AMAZING! Fits true to size.....color is just beautiful.....sleeve length is long & hits at the right spot. Quality leather that looks & feels GOOD! I am loving this blazer...love how it looks with a sweater & denim jeans. I may need the brown one next..... Thanks, Chadwicks!
My favorite Jacket
I have this jacket in almost every color and its just the BEST. I only WISH that you would bring back the OLIVE GREEN. I need that in a size larger than the last one I bought a few years back.
I purchased this blazer in red and black and it's beautiful! The fit is true to size and the leather is soft. Can't beat the price and it's a nice blazer. I'm hate expensive faux leather...ugh and jumped on this immediately!
Watch the buttons
Love the jacket! But, 2nd time I wore it two buttons almost came off. Had to pay to have them secured. But still a great deal!

So many compliments
I love this jacket, I have red, brown and saddle now. They are perfect for the office, dinner or that quick on the go trip anywhere. I love the softness, fit and smell. I would recommend them to everyone that likes leather. I use them all year round!
This is a very nice classic blazer and a good value. The dark brown is a rich deep color. I bought true to size, and it fits well. I will be able to wear a sweater under it without it being too tight. The weight of the leather is nice; not too heavy or too thin. The leather is soft and supple which allows for ease of arm movement. I wish the sleeves weren't vented, but I still like the blazer and will enjoy wearing it this fall and winter.
Looks good, fits good, smells good
It's a great jacket. Not the best I've seen, but it is nice. And it smells so good. I got dk brown in a 1X and is roomy. Fits about the way other 1X would fit me. I made 3 vests to go with it. (hint:I used prequilted fabric and it looks so good with the leather. I also made 1 suede vest, that looks good too. All in all i am satisfied with my purchase. Which I consider a good price. So... fits good, smells good, and looks good. That sums it up.
A Great Find
I purchased the black size 10 petite, the leather has a great feel, fit is perfect, can't wait to wear it.
