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!

The perfect jacket to throw over a blousy white tank, black skinnies and black booties. I need this jacket in my life for more than 72 hours!!

AMAZING!
I rented this for a trip to SF/Vegas as I figured I could get the most wear out of jacket over vacation vs one single night of a dress Boy was this worth it, I rented the 8 and the 10 since sometimes my bust is an issue, while the 8 was a little snug across my shoulders the 10 was far too bulky so I went with the 8 I wore it everyday, if I could marry this jacket I would! I was able to button the jacket (a rarity for us busty gals!) and it gave that extra little edge that I was looking for without being too bulky or hot The back comes up a little but only a few inches above your waistline/not super cropped so it was very wearable with jeans/dresses etc I got lots of compliments!!! Highly recommend and totally would love to buy this jacket in the future, it is AMAZING!

Fabulous piece to complement any outfit.
Fit like a glove. I normally wear a 2 or 4 jacket, depending on he designer. Never tried the 4 as the 2 was perfect. I wore it twice during my rental, once to a dinner party with black skinny jeans and a silk blouse, and then to work with slacks and a more conservative top. Would love to own this.

Loved it!
It was a great blazer to have on hand instead of a jacket/coat. Warm enough without being too bulky and added a bit of wow factor to simple dressed down outfits. I would def. rent this again!

Cute, versatile jacket
Runs quite large, especially in the bust. I unbuttoned the sleeves and cuffed them and added a scarf to hide how roomy the jacket was on me and that worked well enough. Other than that the jacket is super cute. The leather sleeves are great and have stretch paneling underneath them so you don't have to worry about not being able to move your arms.

Cute but runs a bit large
Cute jacket, runs a bit large, sleeves were a little too worn in and showed a lot of lines in the leather but the leather was really soft. Tuxedo back but goes much higher than I was imagining.

The jacket is cut perfectly, and is a fun twist on a classic blazer.
The jacket is comfortable with the knit panels in the sleeves and yet is perfectly structured and cut. I highly recommend!

Classy jacket with an edge
Jacket fit great! wore it with a black tank, jeans, and boots, and a gold necklace from RTR. You can dress it up or down. Jacket sleeves had stretch to them which was nice. I would want to own this jacket.

PERFECT! Combination of Weekend Fun & Office Appropriate.
This jacket is perfect. Thick, luxurious wool with leather arms and an interesting tuxedo cut. I wore it Saturday night with a black tunic, leather leggings and booties for a fun "rocker" look and am currently wearing it at my desk over a simple black wrap dress for a more professional but still fashion forward look. Sleeves are the right length and the shoulders have some stretch to them, making it very comfortable to wear. Rent it.

Perfect for dress up, dress down and everything in between. I would wear it every day if I could!
It's the perfect balance of classic meets edgy. I love how the back is much shorter than the front. The details make the jacket special.

Can dress it up or down!
This is an awesome every day staple to a girl's closet. Whether you are going on a date or a business-casual event, this jacket will make you feel beautiful! I have relatively small shoulders so many jackets make my shoulders abnormally wide. I did not have that problem with this jacket (I ordered a 2).

Not my favorite
Rented this as part of my unlimited membership. I really wanted to like this blazer, but the angle of the front made it difficult to pair. Looked great when I did find opportunities to wear, but wouldn't rent again unless I had something specific in mind.

Lots of complements on this jacket!
This jacket has the perfect amount of edge. It was great for going out in the winter. My only complaint is that I feel like it was a little boxy, but I imagine the same could be said for many jackets.

The arms were a bit tight but the actual jacket was rather large around the middle. The style is still very cute.

Moto-Chic!
This jacket has a hard edge with the leather sleeves and the high back gives a fun, quirky twist. It was a great weight for early spring and looked really fabulous with a long maxi dress. I got a lot of compliments!

I really liked this blazer. I wore it to a winter baby shower, paired with a more feminine top under it. I would probably rent this again.

So chic!!
I received this jacket in my unlimited shipment and absolutely love it! I took a size 2 and it fits great. Just a little loose, but works great over layers. I love the fit of the jacket and how it's cropped in the back. The jacket is very well constructed and the material feels very high quality. Won't be returning this jacket anytime soon! Highly recommended!!

A little tight in the shoulders
I rented this jacket via RTR Unlimited. It's getting a little warm here but the jacket was finally available and my office is cold. I loved the cut and the leather sleeves gave it quite the edge. I received quite a few compliments. My only complaint would be I typically size up in jackets to accommodate my broad shoulders and even this was a little tight. It would not have been able to be buttoned.

Amazing
I didn't catch a good picture but I wore it with black pants, a white casual tank, and a red statement necklace from Stella & Dot (that's me with our CEO). I would purchase this in a heartbeat!!! Fit perfectly, so comfortable, perfect amount of edge.

Perfect jacket for everything! Loved it and didn't want to return it!
I completely fell in love with this jacket as soon as I put it on. I'm 5'1 and 114 lbs. I rented a size 0 and 2 and the 0 fit the best. I wore it for my wedding rehearsal dinner and I got a ton of compliments. It is well made and dressed up any outfit. I loved it so much I wore it with my wedding dress. It also dressed up a casual outfit t-shirt/jean outfit. I would definitely rent again but wish I could buy it! I didn't want to return it!

Very smart, fashion jacket. Too hot for summer wear and too dressy for my everyday working in tech.
I found the cut a little formal, I hoped I could dress up my everyday jeans and tshirt work situtation but it kind of rides high at the back with the tuxedo front and it didn't quite work for me. I really liked it as a dressier thing but trying to use unlimited for stuff that I can wear more frequently

It was nice, served its purpose.
It fit fine. It actually took away from my jumpsuit rental so I didn't really wear it; only when I was out side because it was a moderate breeze.

Fit well. A little long in the sleeves for me.
