I like the horizontal quilted one better. I appreciate the layering though.
Kind of early for this, but this is the new BB quilted blazer. They added a chest pocket and gold buttons which I like, but it’s still too short in the body in my opinion.
This is a new fall release from Zara. I tried it on in the store and the fit is pretty good. I usually wear a small, but I take a medium at Zara. This has many of the details that I like: double vents, 3 button, flap pockets, chest pocket, and surgeon’s cuffs. I also really like the sweeping front quarters.
There are some issues though. The fabric is a polyester/rayon blend. The one I got, for about the same price, is all wool. A light grey is pushing it for my wardrobe. This charcoal wouldn’t work for me at all. The biggest issue for me is the length. It does not cover my butt and the sleeves are too long.
I have my issues with it, but I think this is still a pretty nice jacket. It’s in stores now if you want to give it a try.
This is pretty close to perfect for fall/winter. Some double vents, box quilting on the lapels and pockets, and lower lapel gorge would push it over the edge. Still quite nice.
