ONE BUTTON STUDIO STRETCH JACKET
Love the fabric but the jacket runs small
I normally wear a size 2 in Express jackets, which is usually just a touch too big (I wear 0 short for pants). Based on an earlier review of this jacket, I ordered down a size. Mistake. This jacket runs small and I'll have to exchange for the larger size. The pants also run a bit small but they will stretch a bit, I'm sure. I'm 5'2" and around 110 lbs. The 0 short in pants fits fine but I'm going with a 2 in the jacket. (I still will have to have the sleeves shortened as I do with all Express jackets.)

i know the site says gray, but it's more of a textured/patterned jacket in my opinion. i love the texture and is a bit more fun than your typical gray or black.

I was having some doubts before purchasing this jacket because of it's length, but after trying it on with matching pants and a shirt it looked great

great jacket; consider fabric when choosing size
This is a great jacket, modern fabric (accentuated by lining) with a touch of retro appeal. Like that the button is not too high (perhaps would like it a bit lower; I'm OK with this though.)
One may need to be careful considering the size with different fabric. I typically wear a size 0 jacket (very rarely a 2; can fit in a 00, but it is typically tight).
- In the gray (the thicker patterned gray fabric), size 0 fits overall very well (the sleeve is a bit long, I have to get it adjusted; otherwise fits perfectly.)
- In the black size 0 is certainly too tight (the sleeve would be just right). Size 2 is s bit large (- it feels large and looks large; the sleeve is of course too long.)
I'm still very happy with this purchase! The jacket fist better than most other jackets I've tried on in the last 1.5 years (since the last time I purchased a jacket); I've been looking for one that is not too tight in the chest. This cut and cuts with a lower button(s) fit me well.
