|J Crew Quilted Denim Jacket|
I liked this one in particular, with the soft denim colour and touches of light red it reminded me of something...
So I was very excited to wear my Les Mis jacket over my spring and summer frocks, most of which are in various shades of blue and red.
Why J Crew didn't line this entire jacket in cotton is beyond me. How am I supposed to wear a polyester lining in the spring and summer?
|Body lining: 80% cotton, 20% polyester.|
Sleeve lining: 100% polyester.
|The exterior of the jacket is just what I wanted.|
Like the trim and the buttons.
|The navy body lining has a slightly uncomfortable feel, due to the polyester content no doubt.|
|The sleeves are lined with a slick and clammy polyester fabric.|
I'm quite disappointed as I like the look of this jacket so much. Where during the design process are these things going wrong? Is there no thought put to the comfort of these items, or is it a matter of cost-cutting measures that the designers think we won't notice?
I'll be sending this jacket back of course. I have a couple of smaller items to review this week.
How do you like the jacket? Have you been to see Les Mis yet?
Enjoyo your Sunday darlings!
