M&S Collection Notch Lapel Tailored Jacket
Comfortable jacket, shame lapel was uneven
Very comfortable and machine washable jacket!
I'm afraid the lapel was not even. The left was thinner than the right. I checked for exchange at store, but I found a similar issue in some others. So I returned it.

sixth form uniform here we come
My daughter has to wear a black or grey suit and white or cream shirt for 6th form. Easy peasy? Nah - not with size 8 and an even tinier waist to contend with. After several trips to diff brand stores we found this jacket - it fits great, hangs well and is a lovely texture but could not find a skirt or trouser in the same fabric. End result, mismatched with the only trousers we could find that fitted bought from a diff brand. Is there a co-ordinating bottom half?

Lovely jacket. Lining ruined my white blouses.
This is a lovely jacket however beware if you wear a sleeveless light coloured top under it. The lining is soft and nice to touch however after only 2 wears the lining ruined 2 white work blouses. Clearly the lining doesn't agree with deodorant/flesh next to it and left me with tops that I could not remove the dye from and ruined under wear. I returned the jacket without any issues however next time I will ensure that any jackets have a lighter lining.

Manufacturing quality poor
First thing I noticed was that the pocket flaps were curling up at the corners. This is usually because the facing is too big and even though the machinist had made a valiant effort to "roll" it before top stitching them there was just too much lining. Sleeve linings about 1.5" too long and hanging down below cuff. Worst of all, the collar at the back was over an inch too shallow and did not fold down enough to cover the collar band. Linings too big? Collar too narrow? Patterns and QC need to be reviewed. I'm a great fan of M&S but their manufacturer has let them down here. Would have love to have kept it but could not accept obvious faults and returned it. Bought great little checked jacket instead. It's 5 star!
