Sexy and strong
For my birthday night out, I paired the tuxedo blazer with a very fun and flirty tulle dress to try and create a sexy masculine and feminine look.. I think it worked out pretty well. Some things of note - I am very short and have short limbs, so the sleeves were long on me. I cuffed them, and it looked fine that way. The #struggleisreal for us petite folks. The shape of the jacket is very beautiful. It has strong shoulders and then tapers in to the waist, with a nice upward V in the back. I wish, however that the button closure was closer, to really dramatize the strong shape and cinch the waist. But otherwise, a stylish and well made jacket.

Super chic and really comfortable. Adds a touch of sophistication to a simple outfit.
I wore it over a camisole with some sparkly pants for Christmas dinner with my fiancés family. It has some stretch so while I'd normally wear a 6 to be comfortable, the 4 fit perfectly. I really love this for adding some polish to any outfit. Especially if you have something dominant like sparkly pants, you don't want to be too loud on top.

Great jacket for the office, short in the back!
Great jacket, excellent cut and quality. The leather was a bit damaged, but wearable for the office. As many mentioned, very short in the back, so it may not work for every outfit.

Edgy and classic!
I rented this for my girlfriend for our wedding. The fit was slim but comfortable. For example, the leather sleeves are soft and supple. I even tried it on and love the rise in the back as it perfectly shows off a woman's curves while making its nod to a more masculine/traditional tuxedo jacket. This is one to rent for any occasion when you want to feel special.

Funky jacket that I normally wouldn't wear. I felt upbeat and classy for an otherwise somber event.
This jacket was nice and warm for a cool fall day. The faux leather sleeve treatment is attractive, as is the cut of the jacket-- high in the back and longer in the front. The fabric is comfortable and seems strong. I wore this with the tulip bottom skirt from RTR and my cashmere shawl for the military honors and interment of my Dad's ashes. I felt so confident and strong in this outfit!

Stunning Jacket - Fits like a glove
I absolutely adored this jacket - such a stunner. The tailored fit makes it perfect to dress up a casual look and then easily transition to the evening. The body of the jacket is soft and quite warm, and the leather sleeves really punch it up a notch. Of all the RTR pieces this would be one I would buy - it's easily an every day staple piece. I paired it with jeans during the day while walking around the city and in the evening over a dress and it was perfection for both. I didn't want to send it back!

this is definitely a fun jacket and perfect for fall in NYC
Admittedly I have an odd figure, short torso, large chest and petite everywhere else so I went with the size I knew would cover my chest and unfortunately that mean that the shoulders were a little wide but nothing that ruined the outfit. I wore it with jeans and a silk top to a work event and felt awesome and chic :)

Always look cool
Fab jacket. Makes every outfit look more stylish, whether it's a party dress or joggers and a t-shirt. Yet never looks like too much. Yes the cut is high in the back, that's deliberate, if it's going to bother you don't rent this. I'm a 6 and rented the 4, it's a little snug if I button it (which I never do) but otherwise looks nice and trim.

Chic and Classy with an Edge
This jacket fit nicely and I wore it with a range of things from a tank top to a long dress. Gave it a bit of edge. The only issue is the material at the back of the neck kept rubbing up against my neck making it a bit raw and had to keep taking it off.

Perfect jacket for all occasions!
I loved this jacket!! I wore it for a mixture of events-- work daytime, work event in the evening, wedding rehearsal and with my bridesmaid dress at night. It honestly is so versatile and cute! It definitely has a blazer look, but is also trendy and stylish with the sleeves and fit.

The fit is flattering. Goes well with almost every top I have. Very classy with an edge. Especially liked pairing it with feminine tops. I wore it almost every other day to work for two weeks :D really want to buy it

Cool Design but worn looking
I really liked the design of this jacket but it did appear to be a little bit worn when I received it. Overall the size was good and the arms weren't to snug which can sometimes happen to me if the body of the jacket fits. I would recommend!

polished & edgy
great piece for work or play, adds just the right amount of edge to an otherwise classic silhouette. it's nice and fitted so a great blazer to wear over flowy tops or dresses when a regular blazer would be a little too boxy or long. the only complaint I have is that the leather sleeves have knit panels on the inner arm. still a gorgeous jacket, but I think those ruined it a little bit and made it look less like a $700 jacket and more like a knockoff :(

Loved this! Awesome quality, though it looked like it had been dry cleaned one too many times.
I have broad shoulders, the 4 would have been a better fit. I wish I could keep this forever.

I love this jacket so much
I don't want to let this jacket go. It's comfy, chic, and keeps me just warm enough if my air conditioned office. I get so many compliments, and it fits so darn well! I think I have to buy this one.

Compliments on this one left and right!
Paired with a black coated jean from AG and the RTR Black Mindy Tank from RTR Unlimited. (Textures galore!) The combo felt fitting for an Aretha concert, but I was still surprised by the number of comments people made on this outfit. I tried to wear the jacket several other times (it's just that great), but couldn't find the outfits for what I had planned that week. (It would have been a bit of overkill for my office, but not everyone's.) ;) You could definitely pair this with all sorts of looks. Personal favorite was the hidden front button. When you've got that much going on detail-wise, it's nice to not have the button right out there on display. I will definitely be trying to get this again when cooler weather sets in!

Super Chic
Great jacket and style. Like the other reviews say, the back is fairly short, but if you already know that, it doesn't end up being a big deal. The jacket was very easy to dress up and down.

Super cute!
Super cute! Loved it. Adds a flare to any outfit. It's just short in the back so unless you wear high waisted pants or a crop top, your shirt underneath will show.

Perfect mix of edgy and classy
This is the third time I've rented this piece between my unlimited and regular rentals. Fits perfectly. Has long enough sleeves for the tall ladies also. The shorter back adds some welcome flair to the normal black leather blazer look.

Best. Blazer. Ever.
I wish I could keep this blazer! I got so many complements on it! Paired it with a white Erin Fetherston dress and was told I was channeling Sarah Jessica Parker (or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I'll take to!). It was comfortable and fit perfectly. The back is short, which works well with a dress, but if you are looking for more coverage in the back, you may want a different blazer. Loved the leather details!

Rented it for a formal occasion...wore i EVERY DAY
In LOVE WITH THIS. It definitely had been wore and loved before I received it, but I was still happy with the overall quality. The 4 fit me perfectly. I wore this to my work gala, then to a daytime brunch fundraiser, out on the weekends, and to work. This blazer is standout and elevates any outfit you are wearing. I sent it back for fear that I would never return it and keep it forever. Now, I'm missing it!
