Blackfriars Jacket

WQ063
(Was $138.00 ) now $82.80

This is workwear with a modern twist. It's fitted, flattering and ridiculously comfortable — and a centre-front zip makes it really practical.

not for me

Best Uses

  • Wear To Work

This jacket is well made, and may fit some well, but it's just not for me. I usually order a size up in jackets because I have broad shoulders, but the shoulders on this were still too small, while the rest of the jacket was huge. The peplum bottom was ridiculously large on me. I think I may be too hippy for this style - it just added too much weight.

    Very narrow in shoulders

        This was ordered for my daughter who usually wears an American size 4. She has broad shoulders so often gets a 6 in jackets yet she could barely squeeze into this one. Very tight, especially since this is a knit.

        Not quite there

              I bought the black with grey trim Blackfriars Jacket to wear over the black with grey trim Holborn dress. They match very well. Even the grey trim lines up. However, I'm 5'5" tall, 140 lbs, 38 (36D)-32-40 and my normal size 10 felt too tight in the shoulder, upper arm and across the bust. If I wore the jacket open , it pulled towards the back like it was too small. I'm afraid the 12 will be too big. I decided to order one of the cropped cashmere sweaters in pewter to go over the dress instead. I'm hoping the pewter will match the grey trim of the dress. It won't look as much like a suit, but should keep my arms warm if needed and not look too funereal.

                I bought this to wear with the Holborn dress for a job interview. Incredibly comfortable to wear all day long but I felt very professional and put together but not like I was 'wearing a suit'. Very happy with the purchase!

                  This is a classy jacket that works well over a sheath dress or over jeans on the weekends. The zipper starts a bit up from the bottom, which improves both the shape and comfort. Highly recommended.

                  This is a beautiful, stylish jacket. It is sharp. It is lined on the inside and the quality is good. It is perfect with the Breadwinner Skirt. Unfortunately the fit was not so good for me. A number of reviews noted that the fit is small, so I bought my regular size and one size up; I had to return both. I'm tall and athletic and normally a U.S. 10 would work. The overall length of the size 10 jacket fit my expectation (it sits high at the waist), however the upper chest (from the waist piping to where the sleeves join the jacket) was much shorter than I expected, and it was hard to move my arms. The arms, sleeve length, and upper chest on the size 12 were perfect, but the waist on the size 12 billowed out in the front and back. Gone was the beautiful fitted look this item should have. Big sigh. I do highly recommend this jacket, but check out the sleeve and waist measurements before you buy.

                    I bought it in Navy to go with my navy Holborn Dress. Together they make a great suit. I also combine with a simple black shift dress so I have 2 options for the jacket when I travel for work. It is a bit short waisted in style so I think it looks best with a dress.

                      I'm in love with the cut of this jacket - it's so flattering and hits perfectly at my waist. It's a good, quasi-cropped cut too, which looks great with a longer tank or cami underneath. I've worn to work or out - the cut is flattering enough to transition from work to evening easily. Please make this in more colors!

                        This is a super comfortable jacket that looks great. I usually wear a size 4, but had to order a size 6 in this item.
