Our Knit Blazer has the shape of a beautifully tailored jacket, but the soft knit French terry fabric is as comfortable as your favorite cardigan. The weight is precisely balanced; light enough to not be bulky but with enough substance to drape like a more structured jacket.
I bought this blazer in size Medium and it fit perfectly with a light t-shirt or silk shell underneath. (I'm fairly petite: 5'3" and 130 lbs.) The fabric is soft and comfortable with enough heft to hang well, but not so much that it's bulky. It's incredibly comfortable to wear -- no binding or pinching. The sleeves might be a touch long, but not enough that they look odd. Length-wise it hits right below my hip bone. The color is a soft navy. I also like that it's machine-washable.
I can sometimes wear a Small jacket/blazer, but this one in a Medium is snug--I won't be wearing it buttoned. The sleeves are also tight, more like shirt sleeves than jacket sleeves. This blazer would work best over a tank top or shell, or a knit shirt with close-fitting sleeves. I couldn't wear a woven shirt with 3/4-length sleeves under it because the shirt cuffs made ugly bulges under the blazer sleeves. On the plus side, the fabric has a very nice drape & feel, and the garment is well-made. The blazer is very comfortable, just the sort of thing I've been looking for to wear to work (my office is fairly casual). I like it enough that I may try a Large to see if the sleeves are any bigger.
I’ve been looking for a blazer that I can actually move around in that’s also high quality and professional looking. This is perfect! It’s my first Fair Indigo purchase and I’m pretty thrilled. Just bought 2 more colors because I see myself wearing this a lot. For reference, I’m 120lbs/5’2” and a small fit great. It’s a slightly expensive piece, but worth it to not feel like you’re working all day in a straight jacket.
The jacket quality and construction are beautiful, and the fabric so soft. However, the fit is on the small size and I ordered the largest size available. I am not normally plus sized.
This is a great throw on jacket that is an upgrade from the hoodie I’ve been throwing on for warmth in a too cold home office. It’s my own fault that I didn’t read carefully enough to learn that there are no pockets. Luckily my old navy hoodie had enough usable fabric to cut out patch pockets that I sewed on. In every other way this jacket is perfect. Fit. Workmanship. Style. All good. Wish it came in more colors. I would order the teal except I have no matching fabric to sew on pockets.
So loving this blazer! Very comfortable.
Ok. Very lightweight. Exposed seams on the inside. Will wash and see how it goes. The worst part however was this bizarre glob of ???petroleum jelly??? on the bag. So disgusting. I do not know why that would even be there, but *if* it’s some bizarre packing technique, someone buying an organic cotton blazer probably want petroleum byproduct anywhere in the fulfilment process.
I do appreciate that it is fair trade and organic but this is very thin fabric. I was expecting something a bit thicker. On top of that, I usually wear a medium and this is much too large for me to wear. I'm 5'6 and the blazer only comes down to the top of my hip bone. I was expecting something a couple of inches longer to look a bit more professional. It has to go back.
