Mandarin-Collar Boiled-Wool Jacket
Great color and style
I love the color (Claret) and like the simplicity of line of this jacket. It appears to be well made. Two things could be improved: the wool is itchy, so will only be comfortable over a long-sleeved garment. Also the dyed-to-match buttons aren't as classic as the metal ones in the photograph.

I loved these jackets. Had to give all mine away as I lost a lot of weight, so am replacing my boiled wool jackets. I bought the black and wish they had a true red. I also bought another boiled wool jacket in the purple. The buttons are no longer the pretty metal ones; they have replaced the buttons on these jackets with regular dyed to match ones. Bring back the metal ones please!

A cold weather standard
PLEASE NEVER DROP THESE ITEMS. I have loved wearing the boiled wool sweater/jackets since I was a child, and nothing is as comfortable! I try to buy one or two. Somehow these items keep migrating from my closet to that of nieces or my daughter.
Since getting older I really like the front buttoning to cool off without getting chilled or to keep warm as the case may be. Both my grandmothers and my mother were on to something, years before it was fashionable.

Nice style, good fit, too scratchy.
It was disappointing to have to return this sweater. I liked the style and fit and think it would have been a very practical sweater. However the material was just too scratchy for me. I ordered a medium which fit well. I would say it runs true to size.
I have been disappointed with the quality of fabric in a number of items purchased from Appleseed's. However I do love the variety of colors and the styles.

Fits well, excellent quality and smart looking.
I like the color, the tailoring and the fabric. Got nice complements as a result!

I was not happy with the overall fit; had to
return it for a larger size

Love this jacket!
I have been searching for another boiled wool jacket for a long time. I'm very pleased with the color (dark red), style, and fabric of my new Appleseed's jacket. One thing to note, the picture and description indicated that the jacket has silver tone buttons, but the one I received had red buttons that matched the fabric. This was not a signifcant issue for me but may be for some. This is why I gave an overall rating of "good" rather than "excellent".

Nice practical boiled wool jacket.
Jacket is a lighter weight boiled wool which does well in the southern climate where I live.
