    This jacket is perfection! Based on other reviews I did size up (5'4" 137) and got a 10. The fit is great, doesn't look too big and a will be fine with another layer underneath. LOVE IT!

        I will wear this beautiful jacket to just about anywhere. It is so beautiful! It is not too heavy/thick. I live in southern California and it will be perfect for the cooler days/night. I am 5'2" and this (10P) is made as if it was tailor made for me. The buttons are the highlight of the jacket, they are not too big. They add the right pizazz. I purchased the navy and yellow/mustard color. I am so glad to have such lovely pieces in my wardrobe.

          Overall I think it is a great jacket. As few people mentioned in their reviews the buttons are a bit bulky, but I do not mind that. Also the sleeves are very long. Originally I ordered 4R as I usually do, but had to exchange it for 4P and it fits great. Also originally I ordered it in yellow, but the color was mustardy and not as vibrant as in the photo. Now I have it in cream and I am very happy - it is nice and warm color.

            I had vivid memories of my Aunt Marge, always a fashion plate from the 40's to the 90's and a classic, beautiful woman when I first saw this jacket. My aunt was also a superb seamstress, so the fact that the construction, the fabric and the care in details would have passed her standards is saying something. I'm 5'4' and have curves from about 20 extra pounds so this accomodates them without accenting the 'flaws'. Gorgeous color and weight - not an ideal jacket for warm humid weather, but good in a cool office.

              This is the most versatile jackent I own. I can dress it up when I wear over a dress or with a skirt and I can dress it down when I wear with my blue jeans. I am always complimented on this jacket. I love it!

                I bought this jacket in navy and cream,this is a very beautiful jacket I havent worn it as yet but plan to wear it over a green sleeveless dress to a convention. I have only tried it on and it looks great am so glad I bought it after watching it for weeks and waited for the sale. The buttons add a very classic look which makes it stand out.

                  I bought this in the sulphur and couldn't be happier. There are actually two different colored yarns, a brighter yellow and a more brown yellow, which give this jacket a beautiful depth. Add in all the details like the fabulous cut and fun buttons and you have a great jacket that can be dressed up for work or dressed down with jeans. I can already tell I'll be getting tons of use from this one.

                    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket. I purchased this jacket in sulphur. I thought is was close to chartreuse but it is more yellow than anything. Either way, the color is FAB. The cut of the jacket is very slimming and the details of the buttons are "to die for". I have a long torso and am sometimes concerned with short "boxy" jackets. This was not that jacket. The fit is perfect. Since we have had an unusually cold season I can still wear this jacket well into late May early June. I

                      I just received this jacket and wore it to an afternoon wedding. I received so many compliments on the style and the color - I ordered the yellow/mustard color. Even that evening someone search me out to ask where I got the jacket! I used the fitting tool online to decide on my size and it worked perfectly!! I would highly recommend using that tool to eliminate questions on sizing. Very cute and stylish jacket - I wiil wear it to work, with jeans and every chance I get! So glad I ordered it and I have loved everthing I've ordered from Boden!! Way to go with providing stylish choices and setting the trend for us US shoppers.
