When I first saw this fitted asymmetrical cut jacket I knew immediately that I had to have it.  It's a hip, yet timeless, statement jacket that can be worn year round. The quality of the fabric, stand up collar and asymmetrical cut make this jacket tres chic.  It fits quite snug, and since it's a jacket and I plan to wear additional clothes under it, I ordered a size up (medium).  The fabric has a nice stretch and warmth to it, with a ribbed wool sweater material at the ends of extended sleeves.  The sleeves are also super long, which is fantastic because I'm tall, (petite gals can just have this hemmed) but they also add to the jacket's chic factor.

The only downside I've encountered with this jacket is the buttons.  They look great, but when I had the jacket dry cleaned the buttons picked up a white powdery substance from the dry cleaning solution.  I had it cleaned by two different high-end dry cleaners with the same result.  I wiped them clean with a wet paper towel, which was a hassle, but this jacket is so worth it.  I would buy it again in a heart-beat, and plan to wear it for many seasons to come.
