versatile and stylish
PostedJuly 2, 2016
I ordered this cardigan in both the red colorway and the green. I thought I would probably send one back, once I decided which I liked best. I ended up keeping both colors! The sweaters are lighter weight than I expected, which is actually a plus. It means that they will span three seasons here in the Pacific Northwest. The style is up-to-date, the fit is just right, and both colors are very attractive. Highly recommended.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A mix of yarns gives our open-front sweater its texture and color variations. Reverse texture at the rolled placket and patch pockets.

lovely sweater
PostedMarch 29, 2016
This is a very pretty cardigan, and fits well. The patch pockets are handy, and the marled blue color is wonderful. The sweater is soft and comfortable, too. Highly recommended.

great basic item
PostedMarch 29, 2016
I was looking for a very simple black, knit cardigan/jacket, and this is exactly what I wanted, so I'm very pleased with the purchase. The fit is good and the pockets are handy. The jacket is simple but stylish, since it is a classic. I would have preferred a 1-way zipper instead of the 2-way, but nothing is perfect. (I mean, what's the deal with 2-way zippers? I can see using one on a parka, but on a lightweight, fashionable jacket? Who needs it?)
Nice jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

LOVE THESE SHIRTS!
PostedNovember 5, 2015
Thank you, J.Jill, for bringing these corduroy shirts back WITHOUT the silly gathered area on the back! I buy a couple of these every year, but didn't like last year's version nearly as much as in previous years. The gathers across the center back were unnecessary, and now they're gone! Yea!
If you'll keep offering these simple shirts, in gorgeous colors, I'll keep buying them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Can't be beat
PostedJuly 14, 2015
OK, I confess: The addition of this linen big shirt to my closet makes an even dozen! I now have 12 J.Jill linen big shirts, and I love all of them. This latest, however, is by far the prettiest. I was afraid the hibiscus color might be too coral, but it isn't. It's a gorgeous shade of red, and looks spectacular with either black or white pants.
I highly recommend these shirts. I'm sure I'll be ordering more as new colors appear.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very nice shirt
PostedJuly 8, 2015
I recently ordered this corduroy shirt in both the dark green and the dark brown colors. I'm a big fan of both colors, and was looking forward to adding these to my fall/winter wardrobe. I was a bit disappointed when I saw how VERY DARK they both were. They are so dark that it's almost impossible to distinguish the green one from the brown one. They are still nice-looking shirts, and they fit well. A couple of years ago I bought some corduroy shirts from J.Jill, and I prefer the styling on the older shirts. They didn't have the gathered area in the back, but hung straight.
Note to J.Jill: Please bring back the plain, non-gathered cord shirts.
Yes, I recommend this product.

dressy cardigan
PostedJune 2, 2015
This cardigan is very nice, and I love the way it looks on the model. Sadly, while it was really flattering on the model, it made me look like Mr. Rogers. If you have the right look, I think it would be a good choice, but I had to return it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

odd fit for me
PostedMay 20, 2015
I liked the look of this tunic on the website, so I ordered a black one. It arrived today, and I'm disappointed. Although the size is just right, the style just doesn't work for me. The curved seam/pocket styling emphasizes my hips, making me appear broader than I am, even in black. Horrors! I'm actually fairly slim, so this is disconcerting. The real deal-breaker for me is the scoop neckline, which is cut much lower than it appears in the photo. I'm going to return this tunic, which makes me sad since I usually have good luck with JJill products.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Pretty tunic
PostedFebruary 28, 2015
I'm very pleased with this tunic. The red color is just right -- bright enough to feel cheery but not so bright as to look like a Santa suit. The fit is good, including sleeve length. This is a style that can be dressed up or down, and worn with jeans, or tights, or leggings, or wide-leg pants.
The only surprise I had was how very light-weight the tunic is. It's definitely more a spring time garment than a cold weather item, unless you wore something under it.
Cute top. Recommended.

Hello Summer
PostedFebruary 8, 2015
Good grief, I need to join Linen Big Shirts Anonymous. I think this pink one is my ninth or tenth Big Shirt from J. Jill! Like all the others -- prints and solids alike -- this one is great. The color is lovely, and the fit is loose and roomy the way I like it in a big shirt. Do these shirts wrinkle? Of course they wrinkle, because they're linen. If it bothered me, I would iron them, but I think a bit of wrinkling is all part of the charm of linen.
I really like these shirts!

cotton pincord tunic

how much shorter is the petite in this shirt. I want another but it's only in petite, but it might be ok if it's only an inch or two shorter. thanks.
Topic:Size
I can't speak for the other sizes, but this shirt in a Petite Medium measures exactly 28 inches from the back neck to the bottom hem.

Hope this helps.
