Ladies my riding jacket arrived in the plum, and bisque, and it is amazing. I bought my usual size 4 and the fit is fabulous. This jacket looks like a $600 or $700 jacket. The workmanship is just beautiful, and the fabric is perfect for the style. I swore to myself no more black jackets, but after seeing theses I am definitely ording the black. It is unlike any of the other black jackets I own. How is that possible? Ladies both jacketsl look great with my jeans, and all the matching pieces. It's not to be passed up!

Re: My Riding jacket arrived!

My black riding jacket was delivered yesterday and I agree with all your comments.  The fit is perfection and the price is a steal I'm going to order the plum.

Re: My Riding jacket arrived!

I am considering the riding jacket...  I wanted to compare the measurements to the other jackets I have, usually size 12, but I did get a 14 in one of the boyfriend blazers.  I could not get "click here" measurements on any of the jackets I tried to compare today.  UGH! Marilyn 1, you said you got your usual size.  I sure would like to look at measurements.

Re: My Riding jacket arrived!

I received the black riding jacket on Thursday and agree with what Marilyn said. I love it and can’t wait to get my plum one.

@MarilynM
Did you get the matching skirt too? I didn’t but hope I don’t regret that decision.
Did you also order the big deal? Curious what size cardigan you ordered.

@cafemocha4me
I hesitate to give size advice but I’d be inclined to get your larger size. I have the blazer from last year A343612 and the plaid blazers A366537 in a size 2. I do have the caramel plaid blazer in a 4 but that’s because I couldn’t get a 2. While it fits, I prefer the 2.

However, I asked Jennifer what size she took in this riding jacket and she said a 4. I am often the same size as her. So I ordered the 4 and am very pleased with the fit. Glad I didn’t get the 2. Hope that helps and that I didn’t confuse you!

@crazycockermom  I am a true petite yet that hasn't stopped me from purchasing some Linea blazers.  However, even the 2 can be a tad larger than I would like, but they look fine other than the sleeves being too long.  Altering the sleeves is an expense.  On my unlined Blazers I can push up the sleeves.  I hesitated ordering this blazer for that reason.  I decided to try the plum to go with my other plum items, but it is sold out.  Since you too are a 2 can you comment on the sleeve length?  Maybe a plum in size 2 will pop up at some point.

@Biftu  I can comment on sleeve length on the plum 12 I received. Ordinarily a 23.5" length is perfect for my arms, but the 24" will have to do for now.  Until I decide if I really need the 1/2" alteration.

@Biftu
I have long arms and the sleeve length is perfect for me. So I believe they would be too long for you.
