Per Una Cotton Rich 3 Button Velvet Blazer
I bought this jacket to have as an evening wear item. I already have two velvet jackets from Marks and Spencer which fit the bill however this one is much too casual, does not look like velvet and was also on the large side. So it went back.
I would really love Marks to go back to making some well tailored, good quality velvet jackets in jewel colours instead of the overly ornate collection on sale at present.

Beautiful jacket, lovely colour. Delightful lining. However, I am always a size 14 but sadly this jacket is on the small size and although I love the jacket I am not going to buy the next size up. So reluctantly it is going back

Not A Good Fit
Beautiful colour, lovely material but the fit is awful. This jacket would have been amazing if it was tailored. It made me look like a sack of potatoes. Shame!

This jacket goes well with a dress or trousers, even with jeans. It's a snug fit and it could be worth going for a larger size if you're borderline between two sizes. The colour is gorgeous and the fabric seems a very good quality, with very pretty lining.
I have a long torso and could do with the jacket being a bit longer, especially to go with trousers. It's too short to go over tops that are longer than, say, an M&S t-shirt, but looks very neat.
