Twiggy for M&S Collection Tuxedo Jacket
Bought this in the sale. It's beautiful quality and an excellent fit.
i think this could be part of my Xmas outfit!

I am by no stretch of the imagination a slinky thing, but tall with it. Though I do wear my genuine sizing, which works with the rest of my wardrobe, I always seem to have a problem with jackets - nothing fits perfectly - always not quite right on the arms, or sitting comfortably on the bust.
This one is excellent.
I have previously bought another Twiggy (lace print) blazer, sale again, and it too was the same - excellent tailoring, generous cut of fabric, but flattering curves and design also.
Sleeve length is right for me, at 5 ft 9, and I can comfortably do the button up on the tum. Good length on the body, too.
Very good quality, considering is polyester, with full lining.
Surprisingly light, also, despite the layers of fabric, including parts of the design in a heavier satin-like fabric.
It is a very soft grey, not the slightly mint green some of the photos suggest.
Highly recommend, though if you're petite, definitely try before you buy.
