22 INCH ONE BUTTON JACKET
what ive been looking for
I'm having a hard time figuring out what the difference is between this jacket and the 22 inch studio stretch jacket. I ordered both and this one fit better but they looked so similar. I'm really hard to fit when it comes to blazers. I thought I would have to give up and go custom made or get something extremely expensive. I'm 5'11" with long arms but a nearly normal length torso, so typical tall sizes are slightly too long in the arms and much too long in the torso. I also have broad shoulders and have a hard time with arm mobility in most blazers. Years ago, when I last tried Express blazers, the sleeves were much too short so I gave up on Express. Well now the sleeves are longer! This is so exciting for me you have no idea. If you're short/petite, I'm sorry but you can go anywhere else and get a blazer :) I'm so excited that the sleeves are long enough. Then the shoulders fit moderately well because the jacket has enough stretch to allow me some mobility. So happy.
I thought the sizing was a bit weird though. I wear a small in tops at express and a size 8 in pants, but I need a size 10 blazer. It's just a number I don't really care as long as it fits. I'm a 34C fwiw. Also, I don't think it looks amazing when buttoned, but when am I ever going to button it? Yeah.
I hope this gets restocked so I can buy the other colors!

This is my first business jacket. Works great for business professional look. I wear a size four, 5'8" and 135lbs. The shoulders fit perfect and the material has a thick, expensive feel with built in stretch that still allows for some room to move. I love the one-button look that shows the top of the pants in the middle.

Express is the best
This is the 2nd blazer I buy from express. I love the fact that is good for work and for a more casual look. I love wearing it with skinny jeans and pumps.

Color doesnt match Columnist Slim Flare pant
I was looking for a matching blazer to my STUDIO STRETCH TAB WAIST SLIM FLARE COLUMNIST PANT (as mentioned in the description that this blazer would match the Slim Flare Columnist Pant) in Stone. These two colors are not the same so do not buy to complete a suit if you already have the pants or vice versa.

Nicely Done Jacket
Bought this during the 50% off sale during the holidays hoping it would match the grey Express Editor pants I bought last year. The shade was slightly different but you couldn't really tell unless you held it close up. I wore it to work and received tons of compliments.
