Bad ass jacket

This jacket is hot. So stylish and edgy - but still professional. Lots of compliments - from men and women. Runs a bit large - medium was really big and I have wide shoulders and a larger bust. It will look better when fitted.

Always like a fun black jacket!

Material is surprisingly a little shiny with interesting collars. Not very warm. Length was a little shorter so if you are wearing a low rise jeans, your belly button might show.

Love

I brought this on a week trip to Eastern Europe and it was perfect. Ideal for daytime when it was a bit chilly but great for night too. It could have been a LITTLE bit tighter in the arms for night but besides that I loved it. The fabric is actually surprisingly light and breathable and easy to pack/carry due to the weight.

Size down and enjoy the compliments!

Hip and versatile jacket takes you from the office to date night in a pinch. Only con is that this is a very "distressed" tweed fabric. Yet I liked the way the texture added a modern and young feel to the luxe fit of this jacket. Great stretch in the arms. This jacket makes you look a whole size smaller.

Great layer piece!

The fit was perfect. I wore it to work and got several compliments. It is very comfortable and cozy. Not too thin and not too bulky. Perfect for Georgia weather.

Adorable distressed tweed moto jacket for work or play

I absolutely loved this. I generally range between XS and S and the XS was perfect. It was fitted, but I could zip it up very comfortably. This jacket is adorable with anything - jeans, a dress, for work or for play.

This jacket was the perfect accessory!!!

Fit was a bit big, I've got long arms so I ordered a medium but it really fit big. I wore this to the Beyoncé concert in Atlanta and it totally dressed up my look. I paired it with ripped jeans and white fitted tee and heels. It was perfect for the air conditioned dome and light enough for me to not overheat while outside.

Very flattering

I wore it for everyday use. It would have been nice if the jacket I ordered edges were not frayed. I think it has been rented multiple times. I would order it again in a XS and hope it is newer than the one I received.

Not a favorite

Not sure what I was expecting with this jacket, but it wasn't one of my favorites. I thought the whole jacket would be wool, but the paneling on the underside of the arms and on the ribcage is a different material that just looked disjointed to me. I sent it right back on my unlimited subscription without wearing it.

Edgy yet polished

I really liked this jacket. It was comfortable and way to move in due to the stretchy side and arm panels but was still structured. Looked great open and zipped up. I wore it twice.. Once over a casual gray dress with sneakers and once with a white peplum top, skinny jeans, and black pumps. Got compliments both times. Fit was good if not a little loose, but being that it is a jacket, who cares. It has an edgy almost leather jacket style and the fabric has a great texture to keep it interesting.

Came close to buying it

This jacket is comfortable, versatile with anything and I received so many compliments on it! I hate to return it but I will just rent it again. Since its 90 degrees out, I can't justify holding onto it waiting for cooler weather. So easy to dress up or down and so so so comfy.

Loved the texture of this jacket - slightly distressed and unusual!

I rented this for everyday, and ended up shooting in it. Photo is attached. Detailing on this jacket is awesome. It has a distressed look but isn't over the top. There also is a bit of a sheen to the fabric. Perfect for fall or spring - it isn't that warm! Medium fit loosely on me, but I prefer jackets to fit that way.

Longest I've kept an item!

Love this jacket. It goes with everything! I'm usually a medium, but the small fits perfectly. There's a bit of wear near the bottom of the sleeves but nothing too noticeable. It's a great piece that isn't as stuffy business like as a blazer but can still be used in a business outfit and be appropriate with a little flair. From dress pants in day to leather skinny's at night!

All-Around Nice Jacket

This jacket is interesting because it's not a leather jacket, but it gives the slightly edgy look of other Moto jackets. It has a unique design with the side zipper that is not meant to be unzipped. It has an unusual weave that is frayed (I think on purpose and not because of overuse). I would rent again.

Gave me an hourglass shape when zipped up. Much more detailed in person. Hangs beautifully when unzipped too. Will rent again at some point.

I love this jacket and have rented it several times to wear to casual cocktail parties. It looks great layered over tops and with different pants. Nice structure and detailing. I think I really should just buy it!

I felt so great in this jacket! Wish I could keep!!

This fit so well- it definitely runs true to size. It's so stylish and chic, but it also keeps you pretty warm! I wore it when it was 40s-50s out and felt fine! I got so many compliments! It's flattering, and I felt great in it! Rent this for your next chilly date night or girl's night out!

Loved it!

This coat was so beautiful in person. It does have a bit of a shine to it but it's not overwhelming or cheap looking. It's not tight in the shoulders and has a small amount of stretch to it. One negative I would say this coat was a little worn, zipper was difficult to to zip, and there were a few small pieces of fabric starting to unravel but not super noticeable yet.

Very Stylish Jacket & Comfortable

Very cute moto-style jacket...can dress up or down. I am either a M or L in blouses and jackets because of my shoulders which are more athletic than petite, I ordered the L and was too big for me. The jacket has a stretchy panel inserted under the arms and sides that allow for movement, which is a very nice feature. I would recommend ordering a size down. My sister who is very full busted and 2 sizes larger than I am fit this jacket perfectly.

Great everyday jacket, size down!

I've worn this almost every day since it arrived in my Unlimited order (that's probably 2 weeks!), and I wish I could keep it. The cropped cut is great for fuller skirts and pairs well with every blouse I own. I think the material is a little questionable - it frays easily. But that didn't stop me from wearing it whenever I could. I would normally go for a Medium or even Large in a jacket due to bust size and slightly broad shoulders but followed the advice of other reviewers and sized way down to a Small. Perfect fit!

Loved the cool simplicity of this coat. Hated sending it back

This is a great basic for cooler spring nights. It's got a unique style to it, that is different from your typical leather type coat. It is not leather at all. Not sure what the material is, but it's very comfortable. I would love to keep it in my closet, but alas I needed to send it on it's way.

Great jacket! Looks kinda of motorcycle-y in real life. More outdoor style than blazer.

Cute jacket, a nice change from a blazer, I rented this for work. However, everyone thought I was wearing my "outside" jacket ("oh are you on your way out the door?"). I couldn't wear this open as it is shown in the model pic because it was too big, limp, and boxy that way. It was much more flattering zipped all the way up under the chin with a large roll collar, so that the jacket skimmed my shape in the waist/bust. Cute, not my favorite, but worth trying. I work in a creative field so my jacket doesn't need to be ultra conservative. This made me look rather bad-a** for a business meeting, I thought :). Fit just fine on my curvy 14 figure, plenty of room for my 38E/F chest.

Love this.... I felt cool and fashion forward!

This is one of my favorite rentals of all times. The jacket added an extra cool vibe to every outfit. Seriously - I'm buying it! Loved the fabric which was a soft tweedy boulce but the under the length of the arms and sides were thin jersey-like neoprene. It made the jacket very comfortable to wear. Not necessarily super warm but great for cool days/evenings.

Didn't work for my narrow shoulders

I wanted to love this jacket but ended up not wearing it. I'm petite, and the extra material around the collar (which makes it hip) just dwarfed me -- it did not work at all.
