League Cargo Jacket

League Cargo Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit This jacket is legitimately so wonderful. It was a major gamble for me because I ordered it online without ever having seen it in person and it was final sale. I can say that it's one of my favorite purchases hands-down. First of all, I'll echo what other reviewers have said in that it is definitely a standard army green (darker than what the pictures suggest), which I love and adds so much to the style of the jacket. It also fits me perfectly - sleeves, bust, waist, everything. I'm historically an XS (5' 6", 125lbs, 34B) in almost all of Madewell's shirts (whisper tees and button-downs/flannels alike) and stayed with this size when ordering the jacket. I'm glad I didn't size up because I think it could've looked a little unflattering had I done so. The fit is loose enough so I can still wear a long-sleeved tee under it and button it up fully if needed. Also note: it's not cropped, but it's definitely on the shorter side, in a good way. Overall, an amazing product - thank you, MW!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light-weight Jacket I bought the XL. I am a size 14, 5'5" tall with an hourglass figure. I can't wait for it to not be blistering hot so I can pair with skinny jeans, ankle boots and a cute top. This jacket is perfect for a breezy day and into the eve. The sleeves are a bit baggy for my frame, so I cuffed them as shown on the model and it looks really cute. The linen lays nice and there is enough room to layer- without looking bulky. xoxo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIghtweight style This is a great summer weight jacket. It is a lighter weight fabric that is softer than what appears in the picture. I bought it in oyster and it is between a white and cream color--not too white, not a true ivory, either. It will work into the fall and will layer well. The fit is TTS. I'm 5'4, 117, XS and I had room for a tank or t-shirt underneath. I agree with a previous reviewer that this is a more stylish warm weather alternative to a cardigan for the office, restaurants, etc...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love I bought this jacket in the green/fatigue shade in store last week - paid full price, which I tend not to do. I'm also not typically a fan of fatigue green on me (greying brunette), but this green is an exception. Went online today to find the oyster in my size (Small). I'm 5'5, 135, and the small is perfect, though I don't think I can button it at hip. That's ok because this isn't a style I'd button anyway. The jacket is well made and is incredibly comfortable. I don't think it wrinkles nearly as much as other linen blend items. The green will go well into the fall. The oyster, a bonus on sale, is good right now for those days when it's hot outside but way over A/C'd inside. I have not washed the green jacket and will carefully heed the other comments about not machine washing even though instructions say that's Ok. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Layer I just bought this yesterday and had to review. This jacket does not look great on the hanger or in the photo, but I threw it on last-minute in the dressing room and LOVED it. I am a little short in the torso and I have good shoulders.... and I found this jacket flatters these proportions on me. I got a size Small (my true size- 5'4 and 140 lbs), even though Madewell tends to run big on me and I sometimes get an XS. It is slightly roomy in an on-trend way without swallowing my petite frame. The sleeve length and shoulder seams hit me right and I can button it up with no prob. It drapes amazing and the linen blend is nice and soft. I'm going to make sure to hand wash or take it to the cleaners, as per the review about following the washing instructions and it shrinking. It's hard to find layers for summer, so I know I will wear this long into fall when it's still quite warm. The oyster color is actually awesome for mixing it up and I'm glad I went with it over the green. Do it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great summer layer I purchased this jacket in the oyster color and it's a great summer layer. It's more polished than a simple cardigan and I love the white for summer. I definitely like it better with the sleeves rolled up like on the model in the picture. I feel like it runs true to size. At 5'9 with an athletic build, I usually wear a medium in cardigans and jackets at Madewell. I did purchase this in a medium and it fits well. It is linen so it does wrinkle. I have not washed it yet so I can't speak to that. It is not a cropped jacket, but it will feel shorter on taller ladies. I was very happy with this purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't wash this! (Despite what label says) I washed this on gentle, cold...and it still shrunk. really disppoined with the quality and fit. Not happy. Luckily the store was super cool with it (I was honest) and gave me a full refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cross-generational Value I'm not saying how old I am or how old my daughter is, but I bought it for myself, wore it to New York City (stayed in Chelsea) to visit with her and she envied it. No place you can't wear this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super soft linen that layers like a boss Sized up for a looser, summery vibe with this incredible - I might have super powers when I wear it - lightweight, super soft linen layer. It's so much better than a cardigan & sassier than throwing on a shirt as a layer. I got so many compliments and requests for where to buy that I was nearly floating in a super-happy-I-bought-this kind of feeling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love! Was looking for a "summer" version of the Madewell Military jacket I already have and this seemed perfect! Got it in the mail and I wanted to love it but it just did not fit as expected. No real issues with it just didnt love. Returned it.
