The Review of Lieutenant Jacket


Here are the pics of my lieutenant jacket. As you can see in the first 2 pics I like to wear it with sleeves rolled up and color standing up. Also, notice that I actually like to button up 1 middle button to "create" an illusion of a waist line on this jacket. I took some pics with sleeves rolled down and jacket unbuttoned so that you can see it has a boxy shape. The sleeves have buttons so it's very easy to roll them up or keep them down. The jacket is light enough that I don't feel the "heavy" feeling of it wearing me down, making it easy to wear it buttoned up or open. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase, and so far wore this jacket almost every day!!! I was also happy to use my 10% promotional discount from Jcrew for giving out my email address. (promo offered at local stores 4/10-4/24 for in-store purchases).
In case anyone was wondering, I also took pics of what I was wearing underneath. It's obviously J.crew (come to think of it, I think 95% of my closet is from J.crew). I'm wearing a chambray shirt in coastal blue which is amazingly soft and is exactly what I'm craving for right now. Also, pictured are denim zipper Minnie pants. I scored these at Riversidesquare Mall in NJ on sale for $53.99 (on sale for 59.99 with 10% off). If you are thinking about getting a pair make sure to SIZE DOWN. I'm wearing size 8 (usually I'm between 8 and 10 on the bottom), its hard to tell from this pic but they are very loose in my "behind" area which is NOT cool considering the fact I'm not size 0 to begin with, so the new pair that I just bought on sale is size 6 which fits amazingly nice!!! They are VERY stretchy so don't be afraid to buy 2 sizes smaller, seriously! And, yes I will be returning my original size 8 back, J.crew! I'm also, wearing a J.crew Fireball cluster necklace (item23678A) and J.crew large link bracelet in rose "gold" from last year.
I hope this was helpful and since I've been getting a lot of requests for pictures, I'll try to post more personal reviews of Jcrew items that I own with pictures attached.

Hey ina, always happy to help! The jacket is TTS. It's not really fitted. I'm usually bw 2 sizes in tops, so I went with the bigger, just to feel comfortable enougth to button it up but could have easily went with the smaller size for a fitted look. Don't go smaller though than your usual size bc it's not stretchy. Hope it helps.
