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?)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 was so disappointed when I opened the package and pulled out this sweater. The picture on the website showed the red as a wonderful, deep, slightly purplish red. It looked very classy, and I was anxious to wear it with black pants.
Imagine my surprise when I realized the red is more the color of a fire engine. Or a ripe tomato. Or a tacky Christmas stocking. I mean, we are talkin' SCREAMING RED here. If I wore this sweater, I'd feel as though I should also be wearing a Santa hat. This item will definitely be going back to J.Jill.
