Rated 5 out of 5¬†by MacN Lovely!
I didn't have the problems the other reviewers did. The lapel is right and doesn't look weird or awkward. This is my go-to jacket. I wear it on casual fridays at my super conservative office and also want to replace it with my weekend denim jacket all the time these days. I'm sure my family is kind of done seeing me wear it with everything. It is light, think denim jacket function, but not enough to be worn alone on a 30 degree day. I like the texture and the colors (navy and black) and the faux leather detailing. Definitely pleased with this purchase. It is boxy, though. Keep that in mind if you prefer a fitted look/feel.

Rated 5 out of 5¬†by Ecglynn I love this jacket
I actually spoke with a Madewell "Live Chat" person for assistance on sizing, so that I got the best fit (since it was on final sale).
I asked them the dimensions of the item because I loved the mixed fabric and the bomber look of the jacket. I normally like my jackets a little bit bigger because I want to be able to fit a chunky sweater underneath.
I decided to size down (I normally buy jackets in a Small, but decided to get an x-small based off the other reviews and the dimensions I was given). The jacket runs large and ordering a smaller size was a good idea. I love the jacket, it is true to picture. I loved the snaps and I know that many reviewers thought the flap on the jacket was awkward, but if you button up the jacket half way, the flap stays out of your way and looks great.
The fabric is light weight - great for fall/ spring, definitely not a winter coat. I bought it on sale and it was a great deal! Looking forward to wearing it in the coming spring months.

Rated 5 out of 5 Cute and versatile jacket
This little jacket fits well and is so comfy it feels like wearing a sweatshirt. The cut of the lapel is geometric and modern, and the colors of black, blue, and gray work with most outfits.

Rated 3 out of 5¬†by CMarie Way better in the picture
I was so excited for this jacket. But the flaps are super awkward, the material is paper thing and the sizing is HUGE. I got a small thinking it would be roomy enough for a sweater underneath but I could easily wear two or three sweaters under it.
Maybe it's just too big on me, but I'm returning it because it's awkwardly shaped and thinner material than some sweaters I own.

Rated 3 out of 5¬†by kjohn146 Wanted to love it
This was so close to being a great jacket, and I really wanted to love it. They must have styled it on the model juuuuuuust so to get it to look good - the flap you see near the collar on the left side (her right) is much bigger and more awkward in person. I would never take the time to button up all the buttons (no zipper), and when the jacket is open, this stupid flap just sort of hangs there and is super awkward. Otherwise, this is a comfortable, very cool looking jacket. Not too heavy, not too light. True to size.
