Such a great style!I love the style of this jacket! It has a peplum back which is not immediately obvious on the pictures. It's very sassy and cool.

Fits WellDon't know why I didn't realize this is cloth and not (p)leather, but it fits nicely, is cut well and is actually more comfy

I tried on the 22 at store last night to see about fit in arms. I was surprised it pretty much fit. What I thought was strange though were two things: 1) The front ran larger than the back - and I'm pretty balanced how I carry my weight. It also puckered on my left side - (looking in mirror, this would be the left also). It was like either the lining was cut too short, or the front outer fabric was too long and even though I know how to sew / fit "well" - I wasn't entirely sure how to fix this and make the jacket still look right. 2) The back "pulled" - it was made okay. I'm short-waisted, and it rode up on me. I also expected the jacket to be more flattering. From the front it looks pretty good but in the back instead of making me look leaner (well, I hoped) it made me look wider.
Conclusion - mixed feelings about the jacket. The jacket is also "summer weight" - going into fall or winter, probably you would want to buy it at least a size or two larger to have room for a sweater under it. It has the weight of about a t-shirt. (The upside is if you are packing for a trip, this is not going to take up much space and you could still get a suit-look pretty easy.)
Overall, I checked out the store for the first time. LOVE (!) the clothes, and most (other than this jacket) seemed to be made well. A staffer was there steaming out wrinkles in clothes. That was impressive - seriously. I felt like they actually care what the merchandise looks like on racks! Store presentation was excellent, well-spaced, easy to find things, and done in a way that if I "shrink" I would be back to try on most everything! This is the only store I have been in within the last year I can say just about everything they had I found "exciting." (I have been doing a lot of looking in stores lately trying to put together an intense-style speaker wardrobe.) The stores, however, I was told by staff, rarely carry the larger sizes. THIS IS IMPORTANT - it means you will be ordering online if you need anything larger and an XL. I was very lucky the store had the 22 in this. I spent maybe an hour looking at the other clothes and never found anything larger than an XL after this jacket.
Overall, I would say this is a store "not just for teens up to middle-aged, but also for the young-at-heart." The styles definitely beat out what department stores are carrying - this is one very fun store with awesome clothes!!!!
