Product Details

Lonesome took one hundred of our wear-anywhere pilot jackets and worked some magic with their vintage embroidery machines (we're pretty into that tiger). It's the perfect this-season-to-that-season bomber and a small-batch style that will go fast.

Madewell x Ft. Lonesome™ Embroidered Bomber Jacket

Madewell x Ft. Lonesome™ Embroidered Bomber Jacket is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Investment piece that's worth it for petites I'm a bit more petite (read: shorter) than the other two reviewers and thus I might have had a better experience with this jacket. I'm 5'2, 32C, 125lb, and usually an XS in Madewell but sized up to an S for a more relaxed fit. It fit me pretty much perfectly, with enough room in the body for a few layers. My only quibble is that the sleeves run a tad short -- fine when my arms are at my sides, but ride up on my forearms quite a bit when I raise my arms. In any case, the fabric and make of this jacket is durable and the embroidery is very sturdy. The color should basically be considered a neutral -- it goes with everything! -- and of course, the design on the back keeps it from ever being boring. I'm looking forward to wearing this for years to come!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Try it on first, or order multiples I ordered a medium and a large, wanting to make sure I got the right one. I agree with the previous review that this item is short, especially in the back. Fortunately I am only 5' 4". I actually found the medium was a tiny bit longer in the body. I compared both, seam by seam. The biggest difference was the size of the body of the jacket. Large was definitely blousier and bigger, but the length pretty much looked the same when I tried them both on. The embroidery is beautiful! No errors, no flaws on either jacket. I generally where a 6 or 8 in tops. Most madewell tops I have purchased are mediums. I also will likely only wear this with high waisted pants, due to its length.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from RUNS SMALL! This jacket runs extremely small. I am 5'2" and 130 lbs and usually wear small in Madewell jackets so I ordered both a small and medium because I wanted at least one of the sizes to work out so I could return the other. Right out of the box I could tell these were tiny. The small looked like a jacket my 9-year-old could wear. I tried them on and like the other reviewers said, the sleeves were super short, the band at the waist when I zipped it was very tight, and the length was crazy short and I'm a short person! So both are going back. I did order a large so hopefully that will work out. The quality is great and the embroidery is very well done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it but.... I LOVED THIS JACKET. But... I had to return it. I am taller than most and this just looked so croppped on me. The arm length was great, the embroidery was prettier in person. But I couldn't get of how short it was. If it was about 2.5-3 inches longer I would have considered keeping it. So sad that I had to return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so wanted to love it i badly wanted to love this jacket but alas it just didn't work out. the body is very short, which makes it less versatile. moreover, the sleeves were too short. the embroidery is excellent, as is the jacket. the pockets were too small for my iphone 7 so that was a major bummer. had this not been the case i may have kept it.
