Rated 5 out of 5 by Sylviah This jacket is attractive; material great
This blue Wide Wale Corduroy Shirt Jacket is a perfect fit for me, who is a somewhat busty. The color is lovely and will go well with other pieces of clothing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MidwestLiving I did not like the fit or color I chose.
I did not like the color (Dutch Blue) or boxy fit. Cotton corduroy material was fine but fit was not very flattering for me (petite/average weight).

Rated 3 out of 5 by FOXY13 SKIMPY CUT, INFERIOR FABRIC AND WORKMANSHIP
I BOUGHT 2 OF THESE JACKETS IN THE LAST 2 YEARS AND WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE FIT, FABRIC, COLOR. THIS JACKET WAS A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.THE SAME SIZE IS CUT MUCH MORE SKIMPILY, THE FABRIC IS MUCH INFERIOR IN QUAALITY AND WORKMANSHIP. WRINKKLES FROM PACKING DO NOT HANG OUT AND IT IS UNWEARABLE TO A PERSON WITH SOME STANDARDS. PLEASE IMPROVE SINCE I LOVE THIS JACKET AND HAVE RECOMMENDED IT TO OTHERS WHO HAVE ADMIRED IT. THIS ONE WILL BE RETURNED. MFH N.Y.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AppleBetty Good looking layering piece! Comparisons......
This was my first purchase from Appleseed's, so I was apprehensive about the size. I decided to purchase this because I really wanted the chocolate, and I am very happy with the color. I have 3 similar jackets from another company, and parts of my review includes comparisons.
FIT - I am PM, 5', aprox. 150lbs. Somewhat fit, but not skinny, and broad shoulders. I got the PM and it was slightly big over a long sleeve shirt. The sleeves were a little long. It felt comfortable, but when I stretched, it was slightly tight across the back. If you are big chested, and want to wear this buttoned-up, you may need to order up a size. I didn't want this to shrink too much, so I carefully washed in cold water, and dryed on low heat. It shrank just a little. I can still layer over a shirt, and the sleeve length is now perfect. It's still comfortable, just slightly tight across the back, but only when I stretch.
I almost always wear PM. However, with my similar shirts from another company, I wear PS, and there is more give across the back. There are 2 back pleats, so maybe that helps.
LOOK - I do feel that Appleseed's jacket looks nicer than my other jackets. The welt chest pocket looks more polished. Also, the collar and cuffs look nicer. The cuffs are longer though, making it a little more difficult to roll up. I like to roll them up for housework. The jacket looked even better after washing. On the right side, the front of my jacket is a quarter of an inch longer than the back, at the slit. It isn't that noticeable though. I was checking for it, because of other reviews reporting similar issue.
BOTTOM LINE - This is good looking, warm, and washes well. If this were offered in another color that I like, and was on sale, I would probably buy another. I do think the regular price is a little high, especially with shipping added on. However, it does seem to be good quality, and it has 2 extra pockets.
