Lab coat was my first thought on the white blazer.  Also, I would never buy an unlined blazer.  Made that mistake and won't again.

Well,  I purchased the fuchsia pink one. I planned on wearing this as a topper with a sun dress or with a light print t-shirt and jeans.  I am hoping I didn't make a mistake!  I don't see this jacket as a replacement for a more structured blazer.  I am thinking it will be soft and lightweight.  We'll see LOL.

@elated  You could be right about the dry cleaning.  It's hard to imagine that blazer looking like it does when new after a trip through the washer and dryer.

I would be tempted to hand wash and lay flat to dry. That might help preserve the fabric and help keep it looking somewhat new. Idk.

The reason I stated dry cleaning because if you look at the model's sleeves, they are all showing wrinkles by just wearing it.  I realize it will wrinkle from wearing but can you imagine the wrinkles from washing even if you hand wash. The material used is not substantial and no lining. I could be incorrect but I will be waiting for the reviews.

@SilleeMee    I received mine today in a white Regular XS.  I love it.  It fits perfectly and it has a great shape - not boxy at all. . It is easy to get on and off.  It does not fight with anything you wear underneath. The fabric is very substantial.  I live in SoCal so I can wear this mostly all year long.  My lifestyle is very casual but this will,look great with jeans, over a dress abd even over my black faux leather pants.  I love it

I received mine yesterday and it's cute!  I purchased the petite small  -  I usually wear a 6 or 8 and I'm 5'3.  The jacket is shaped nice - and fits well.  I pushed up the sleeves and added a cute t-shirt.  I got the pink.  Love it !

Re: Susan Graver TSV - January 19, 2023

Hi for anyone interested.....

 

I recieved mine in the black today.  I like it.  So much so, that I ordered the blue!  I don't think it's boxy.  It's not too flimsy.  It's a great casual blazer.  And I don't mind that it is not lined.  I ordered the size medium.  It has some serious stretch-- I probably could have sized down, but it's not sloppy on me in the medium.

 

I am glad I bought it.  I think the current price (not the TSV price) around $70 with shipping, is good.  Blazers at Talbots or Ann Taylor are around $200. Hope she makes it in navy.  Seems like a lot of people mentioned that in the reviews.  I would definitely get a third!  LOL

IMine came as well and I also liked it more than expected.  It's a substantial weight, but not too heavy.  Perfect for spring and will easily stretch into other seasons. I got it for work, but will also plan to wear it for "nicer" casual events.

@MoJoV @sillmee. 

well it doesn't look like a lab coat at all.  It looks like a blazer.   I wasn't sure about it being unlined also, but the way it's made it works.  It has a lovely shape and the material is substantial.  Washing it in cold drying it on cool then removing it from the dryer should do the trick,
