Catskills Jacket

Catskills Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great styling People have actually stopped me to compliment me on this jacket. The standup collar and the ability to pull the waist ties in a bit to give it a more custom fit is awesome

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and well made I ordered this jacket for fall and I love it! i see myself bringing it everywhere with me to throw on when it gets cool. It is made really well, my favorite features are the hidden pockets for your hands behind those lower envelope pockets, so you can put your hands in them like normal and not in those top-open pockets. I also love that the sleeves unbutton but don't hang open they have an extended piece of fabric there so when you roll them up just one it doesn't just hang open. LOVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight coat It's a great coat and looks just like the photo. It runs slightly small. I float between small and medium sizes with Madewell. The small was too small and the medium fits good - wouldn't mind a tiny bit more room on the sleeve length. Love the coat though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird, stiff, tent-like drape over the butt - Go for the Fleet! I'm going to do a little bit of comparison reviewing here, because I could imagine folks being interested in both the Catskills/Fleet jackets and wondering how they might compare. I am 5'7", 150 pounds, 36C, typically size up to a Medium in jackets, and usually opt for a small in most other Madewell tops. I ordered Medium in both. On looks alone, I prefer the Catskills jacket - feels more "military." I found the Fleet jacket plenty roomy and like the way it is cut. The Catskills jacket felt noticeably tighter mainly in the armpit area. And, in spite of the drawstring waist, it is extremely boxy. The worst offense is the fact that it sticks out stiffly way over the butt - just floats/hangs straight out. One final general complaint - I don't like how the drawstring ties hang just inside Madewell jackets. I wish there was some sort of design element that allowed them to be hidden without tying a knot that messes with my perfectly calibrated cinching. Perhaps an interior pocket or button?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One minor flaw I've had my eye on this jacket and finally purchased it on sale. The fit is beautiful (I personally didn't find it to be too boxy, as other reviewers have mentioned). The material is sturdy yet lightweight, and I'm excited to wear this once the weather cools down a bit here in NYC. My only complaint is that the waist drawstring does not come with any sort of toggle to keep the cinch in place. It seems that I have to knot the drawstring on both ends, which I'd really rather not do (it also makes it more difficult to adjust as needed). Overall, I'm happy with this jacket and will be keeping it, but I'll probably purchase a couple toggles myself. For sizing reference, I am 5'5, 135-140 pounds, 34B. The Medium fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this color - when will the blue/grey be back? This jacket is fantastic - it can be worn outdoors as a light coat, and also looks great as a more casual version of a blazer. I love it! I purchased this jacket in the green color, and I went back this week to buy the blue/grey color. My local store only had XXS - and after checking, found no mediums in stock in the entire company. Will Madewell be making more of the blue/grey color? I would love a second color of this coat! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lightweight jacket super lightweight jacket that can be worn 3 seasons of the year and with just about anything-- cute skirts, jeans, leggings, etc. order your usual size, but go up a size if you want to layer because the arms don't allow for bulky shirts or sweaters to be worn underneath; that is the only thing to take into account. the good news is, it's more fitted; not bulky or baggy around the shoulders or arms so you look pulled together as opposed to looking like you're wearing a boyfriend-style. it could also be tied around your waist if you had to.. during bon fire, or outdoor concert to take chill off, etc-- like to have option when it's cold to have something to easily take on/off and not worry about ruining

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous fall must-have I have been looking for an "army-jacket" type coat at an affordable price for so long and then I found this! The material is great and it's incredibly fashionable for a steal of a price! I can honestly say that I've worn it almost daily since I purchased it. This coat can dress up or dress down any outfit and is warm/cool enough for the temperamental fall weather we are experiencing. I couldn't suggest a better jacket, for any occasion :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this thang! Great fit. Perfect for everyday wear. Light enough to wear inside or keep you snug on a 60 degree day. Wear it with jeans or a skirt. Love, love, love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I had been looking for the perfect military inspired jacket for fall & could not be more thrilled with this one. The weight is ideal for the transition of seasons and the hidden drawstring waist makes for a much more flattering fit.
