Cadet Blazer

Cadet Blazer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I work in a creative field, and this jacket is just perfect for my style. It's a little different, with wonderful details, and a flattering, clever shape. It works well to dress up or down, and as advertised: goes with anything! I'd love another in a deep blue/navy or black!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Florida Winter Blazer LOVE my new Florida winter blazer! Very well made and fully lined. The color is beautiful and great price on sale. Modern and different from everyone else's boring blazers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love you, cadet blazer Great blazer - very comfortable and I love the subtle pattern and assymetric buttons. May run slightly big - I am usually between a small and medium and the 4 fits me great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to blazer! On the days that I am not wearing the long black coat/blazer this is the jacket I go to! Perfect fit, love the color and the fabric. Looks amazing dressed down with jeans or up with black pants and heels. Fantastic purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from on the fence It's interesting to read the other reviews of this blazer/jacket--I am on the fence about keeping it for many of the reasons mentioned. the collar does not lay as shown in the photo and all around the jacket is just not quite as stylish on me as on the model (surprise!). true to size as i ordered a 2 which is typically for me on top and it is the right fit. however i'd prefer it as an outerwear jacket for my lifestyle and i'm not sure it really looks like an outerwear jacket in real life. i don't wear blazers generally so it may just not be right for me (but I can't decided!).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Design! I love the design and fit. It is a great addition to my fall wardrobe…my only wish is that the fabric was a better quality. I know it will last for a couple seasons, but this is a jacket that I would want for a long time and would've paid more for to get a nicer fabric. With that being said, the price is right for what I got. I may change the buttons up, but other than that, I am thrilled about it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dr. Evil called; he wants his jacket back. I had high hopes for this jacket, but disappointment followed. The buttons are gray, not black. Mine had a loose thread dangling. Plus, the styling isn't quite as structural and interesting as the model shot. Instead, the jacket fits long/boxy, and the collar stands up nearly Nehru style, giving a full Dr. Evil effect. True to size: I'm usually a 2 with a 34a bust and 28" waist. I ordered a 2.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh It looks great on the model but its a bit different in person. I didn't hate it, but this is one of those things that I would get when it went on sale. Not my fave Madewell blazer, but not horrible.
