Forever-Flattering Boiled-Wool Jacket
Beautiful and Ideal for Houston
This jacket is perfect for cool Houston winters. It's a beautiful plum color as well. I love it!

The jacket flared out at the bottom in an odd way and the exposed zipper was unattractive. The collar was too high and stuck up under the neck uncomfortably. Also collar was bent on one side and could not straighten out. This was probably due to some aspect of shipping. Not as good looking as other boiled wool jackets offered. Returned .

black didn't work
This jacket is the same as the "Mulberry" one I had just bought, and LOVED! But for some reason, this black one just did NOT look good on me, so back it went.

It looks like it will be just what I wanted
It is still summer so I have not had the opportunity to wear it yet, but this boiled wool jacket seems to be exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a simple, straightforward boiled wool jacket, in-between hip and knee-length, to wear alone or underneath a coat. The look is simple but clean and nicely made. It zips cleanly and will work with just about anything. I also bought it on a wonderful sale, so I think this is a good purchase overall.

Attractive and flattering
Very pretty jacket. I love the plum color, and though it is a lighter jacket, the boiled wool makes it warm. As the previous reviewer said, layered with a sweater it will be warm enough for colder temps than it might otherwise be. It is cozy and flattering and the vertical seams add to its attractiveness. This is the first boiled wool jacket that I've bought and now I want to buy another, this time in the black!

I LOVE THIS JACKET, THEY CALL THE COLOR BLACK CHERRY, BUT YOU COULD ALSO CALL IT A DARK RED WINE, BEAUTIFUL.
BOILED WOOL IS HEAVY AND I'M SURE WITH A THIN OR MEDIUM WEIGHT SWEATER UNDERNEATH IT WILL BE WARM ENOUGH ON DAYS IT'S NOT FRIGID OUTSIDE, TOO BAD IT'S NOT LINED THAT WOULD REALLY MAKE IT A PERFECT LIGHT WEIGHT JACKET. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS JACKET TO EVERYONE.
I LIKE IT SO MUCH I MIGHT TAKE IT TO THE TAILOR AND HAVE A LINING PUT IN.
