Re: A452597 upcoming Cuddl Duds shacket

I have one of those (similar). Plaids do not exactly match. I really like it. It is perfect for runnimg outside to feed birds,etc. I only paid about $4.00 for it.(Goodwill). If I had to pay the Q price I would want the plaids to match. The brand is Boston Traders and does not have a zipper.

And there was no one left to speak out for me....

Googled the Boston Traders jacket. Couldn't find the womens jackets (I know this is female,buttons on the girls side.) Anyway it is $125.00.

Easy pass NOT a fan of plaids, and it's WAY overpriced. I saw something similar to this jacket in Costco a while ago. It was $14.99 and better-looking than the Cuddl Duds.

@gertrudecloset ...........The term shacket has been around for quite a while and QVC did not "invent" it.  Its a description that is used on many clothing sites.  It means it can be worn as a shirt or a jacket whatever the buyer prefers.


Thank you!  But where did I say QVC coined this phrase @Imaoldhippie ?  I didn't....

 

My opinion remains: no matter who gave it this name; it's silly and was done to induce interest.  It is either a thick big shirt or a jacket.

I do see where the plaid is not aligned along the buttons.  This would be a problem for "me" if I wore plaid.  Something like this has not utility for me and the climate I live in.

@gertrudecloset .......Sorry it took so long for me to answer but I was gone for a week then I could not sign into the forums.

 

I thought you meant that the Q coined the word shacket.  My error.  I agree its kind of a silly word.

I couldn't get on here either.  I think that's the case for a lot of us.  Thanks for responding @Imaoldhippie

Re: A452597 upcoming Cuddl Duds shacket

Okay, I received it a few days ago.  Since I have several pieces of Cuddl Duds fleecewear, I had to try this.  

 

It's a generously cut casual jacket.  If I had been in a store trying on a couple different sizes, I probably would have gone down one size, but it's not really an issue and I won't exchange it.  I prefer my fleece to be a smidge larger than normal.   I don't think the pockets sewn into the side seams makes them too far back.  IMO, I  think they did that to avoid it looking like the wearer has a large tummy.

 

I bought the black so it goes with anything.  I will use it as my go-to chilly weather jacket.  Actually, it would also make a nice lap blanket while watching TV.    LOL
