I have previously purchased (and still wear) many blazers from Penningtons. This one is a similar style to my others and I was excited to add to my closet; however, it fits very short in the body and that puts the pockets and single button closure in a less than flattering position.
Too much room in the shoulders, not enough around the hips. I bought X, being pear-shaped I found the shoulders are almost too roomy but I am unable to close it at the button around the middle, it doesn't fit nicely over my hips. It looks nice open, but to go up a size would mean swimming in the shoulders..as it is I am pulling it down every time I stand up. I needed something quick for interviews.
I wasn't even planning on buying this blazer but from the minute I tried it on I was sold. The stretchiness is unusual in a blazer and so comfortable, especially across the back when you move. It's really sharp looking, and the 3/4 sleeve is a nice modern touch.
Very nice jacket. Can dress up or down. Goes well with jeans!
Best fit in a jacket I've had in a long time. Has a bit of stretch so moves nicely with my body.
