Somerset Tweed Jacket
Very nice jacket!
This is an extremely pretty tweed that would go with a variety of blue-and- green-toned tops. It's lightweight, so is ideal for spring. The sizing runs a bit small, and I needed to reorder the next size up. But purchased during a one-day sale for this jacket, it was good value.

Lovely colors; will go with a number of my tops
I found this jacket ran a bit large, so I ordered the next size down -- but then, I also removed the shoulder pads to make it less boxy. I really like these colors, and the jacket goes with a number of my tops of varying sleeve lengths. This makes it 3-season wearable.

This jacket is a nice addition for the spring. The color mix allows it to be used with a variety of colored tops. The fabric weave is loose but I've had no problems with it and I do not find it "scratchy" as another reviewer did. Also the fit is as expected for the size ordered. Overall worth the original price as compared to similar items in the big box store and a better bargain now that it's on sale.

About 15 years ago, I purchased a jacket similar to this one. It was called a Matka Jacket which I wore often and it lasted a very long time. Eventually, it started to show its wear so it was retired. I have been looking for a similar jacket for a long time and finally spotted this Somerset Jacket. The quality is very good and the lining gives it a nice fit. The color is simply beautiful and it can be work with a skirt or dressier slacks which makes an attractive outfit. I love this jacket, its fit, its quality and color. I highly recommend it and I hope that Appleseed will carry this jacket in a variety of colors.

pretty color but poor quality fabric
Quality of the tweed material was poor. It is stiff and artificial feeling. 'mm sure the wedges of the cuffs will ravel/wear quickly.Pieces of the tweed threads are pulling out of the weave. It is a very pretty, spring blue and aqua color, so I decided to keep it. My husband will love the color. I will not wear it frequently, so I think the fact that the fabric will not wear well will not be a big factor.
It will be altered to fit better. T.his will increase the cost of the item and thus reduce its value
