Northward Cropped Army Jacket

Northward Cropped Army Jacket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Spring Jacket Has Me Sprung! I love this jacket. It's the perfect jacket to throw on for Spring. It's swingy but still fitted enough to be flattering. The color and the length are perfect. Fresh for Spring but not loud-colorful. I'm 5'4 and the length is perfect on me. It fits right at my waist without looking too cropped. I kinda can't say enough good things about this little jacket, but if I could make one change it would be that there would be pockets on the sides. I often find myself looking to put my hands in my pocket but there isn't one there. Other than that, you hit it out of the park with this one Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spring (and fall) piece! Love this jacket! I've been wearing it everyday since I bought it and get so many compliments. The fabric is so soft, which is the first time I've had an "army" jacket or military surplus inspired piece feel so soft and not so stiff/canvas-like! It does run a little big. I'm 5'5" 145lb and usually a M or L in Madewell tops. I found there was a BIG difference between the M and the L in this jacket. It seemed almost like there should be another size in between those two, if that makes sense. For someone who gets Larges in Madewell tops about 80% of the time, the Large in this jacket was too sloppy looking, so I opted for the Medium. Great quality piece! If you are in between sizes, I would size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect light weight jacket I got this in a size M although I'm usually a size S at Madewell. I fit the S perfectly but I got M so that it was more oversized and then length was longer. I like to roll the sleeves as styled on Madewell. Great thick quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for petites I have a hard time finding non-petite jackets that fit - I'm 4"11" and the xs is perfect on me. I do roll the sleeve up once, like a cuff, but it fits like a flared swing jacket. So cute! I got the green color and it goes with everything. Nice, thick and sturdy material too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I searched high and low - this is THE BEST~ I love this jacket! It isn't too big or sloppy and can be worn as a shirt or jacket. Cute over dresses too! The details - pocket, buttons and back vent - are just right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Military Jacket This is perfect-a great fit, a great color (I got the pink and it is 100%) and a great lightweight. It will be perfect for chilly nights and AC...not so much an actual chilly spring day unless you layer it. I have almost no lightweight jackets so I'm happy with the weight, and I got a M (I'm a S/M at Madewell) so I could layer it. Worth the full price, and I don't say that often!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~true love~ I got this jacket in the dusty clay color and it's the perfect shade of pink that I've been lusting after. It definitely runs true to size - I'm 5'3'' and a pretty solid xs at Madewell and this jacket is no different. The material is soft and thick enough for a lightweight jacket and the way it swings out in the back adds a unique detail that makes this jacket different from anything else I own. This will definitely be a spring staple for me this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from add it to your army collection I purchased this yesterday and it goes with EVERYTHING! I tried it on in store with dresses, T shirts, jeans. It ups the game with it all. I have several army jackets but the swingy back on this one makes it so fun! 5'2 110lb, XS fit perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so much yes I knew I *needed* to have this jacket the moment I saw it online. When I finally tried it on in person it was even more perfect than in pictures! I'm 5'3, size 27, and about 130lbs and the M was a great fit. I like my jackets a little roomier - so I opted for the L for thicker sweaters and layering purposes and it doesn't look large at all! It's very flattering and not too boxy. The pleat in the back makes it extra roomy and not too conforming. I can tell this jacket is going to become a wardrobe staple. The only thing I wish it had were pockets! But everything else about this piece is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just WOW! I got this in the dusty clay and it's the perfect shade of peachy blush. I am 5'8 127 and got a small. I love everything about it except the bracelet length sleeves for my cold climate. It is a little cropped but not bad for a long torso. The style is a solid 10 and I plan to wear it both as a jacket when warmer and all day like a blazer right now. This came out of the box pretty much wrinkle free!
