Joshua Tree Jean Jacket in Rossie Wash

Joshua Tree Jean Jacket in Rossie Wash is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Boxy - Great piece I bought this online and was worried it may be boxy. However, when it arrived and I tried it on it fit very well; true to size; not boxy at all. I really like the collar and pocket design- adds a little something to the normal jean jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jacket I've been looking for a denim jacket that was longer and more flattering with dresses, skirts and casual business attire and came across the joshua tree jacket. The fit runs a bit small but I also wanted the jacket to fit a bit looser. I'm very pleased with the jacket and get compliments all of the time. Thanks Madewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute jacket After reading the reviews and because it was on sale with no return option, I ordered the Large (I'm 5'6", 140#) and it's a bit big on me. I wish I would have gone with a medium but the prior reviews said it ran small. Outside of that, I really like the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the style!!! I love this chic and cute jacket!!!!! Since some reviewers mentioned that the arm holes are too tight, I went size up. I usually wear medium from madewell and bought size L on this jacket. I could probably fit in size M but since i purchased L, I can wear thick sweater underneath and its perfect!! I will recommend you to go size up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. I love this jacket! It is quite thin, so it just makes for a great spring, summer night, or early fall jacket. I have not yet washed it though so I hope it continues to keep its shape, color, and softness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I have this jacket from last year, and I wear it every day when weather appropriate. It's my favorite- it's unique, so soft, and flattering. I wish Madewell would make shirts with this style of soft collar. I sized up so I could wear sweaters under it. Mine from last year has faded a little bit with wear, but I think that makes it better. I think last year it was called a different color, but the color looks the same to me in the picture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So so cute I absolutely adore my new denim jacket, I wanted something denim and quirky so this jacket is perfect. The cut is great and not too boxy plus the fabric is a really good weight. My only gripe is that the sleeves are a little short and the colour is lighter than pictured, hence the four stars but the price was too good to return it, so I'm just going to turn the sleeves over. I've worn it once and already had several compliments - what's not to love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Want it in other fabrics! Been looking for a basic light jacket for quite a while, but didn't want a classic style denim jacket. I love this style! It's not too short, sleeves are roomy enough to wear a sweater, and the rounded collar gives a feminine touch. My only wish is that it came in other non-denim colors, like black or military green twill. I would buy it in other colors (if it was on sale - price is a little high for something so basic)!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love! Fell for this jacket as soon as I saw it online, and lucked out getting it on sale. I am new to Madewell but typically wear size small in most brands, however I decided to size up to medium so that I would be able to layer this jacket over mid-weight sweaters. That was a good decision, the jacket is roomy enough to fit over layers, yet it drapes very nicely, falls straight down and is not boxy, so even over a single thin layer it looks good and not like I'm wearing something oversized. I love the pockets and the collar, love the length (what attracted me to the jacket in the first place). My only complaint is that the jacket is quite thin--I was expecting the more typical thicker/rugged denim and this basically feels like shirt-weight. Its positive assets outweigh this so I am keeping it, but I think it should be noted. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase, and so very excited to have found a denim jacket that is not the typical cropped style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a cool take on the jean jacket You can't beat a classic jean jacket and this is a unique take on one. I'm usually a 12 in madewell and I got the large. I'm a little bustier, so I can't quite button it up all the way, but the jacket looks fine open and I think an XL would have fit big everywhere else. I bought it on sale in store, so an XL wasn't an option. Madewell should carry XL in stores! The cut on top is a little weird. It's almost like a blazer, but not quite. Overall, the shape of the pockets and collar sold me. The jacket is simple, but these details make it stand out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have been looking for the right jean jacket for so long & finally found it This is a sharp looking jacket especially with the curvier feminine collar/neckline. I really like the longer length which leads to a more flattering look on me. The material is softer than most jean jackets and the denim color is a nice "neutral" blue which goes well with so many of my clothes. I'm a classic XL and I found the jacket is a little more snug than I usually wear, in the upper arms & across the chest. But I'm keeping the jacket since: 1) I really like it; 2) it fits; and, 3) it is my incentive to loose a few lbs & firm up a little more. It's a win-win.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a big difference There were new version and a sale one in the store. The color and style appear the same, softer fabric, longer length....a lot of likes for my opinion. Great piece for spring.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from average to good I love the wash, but I wish the sleeves were a little longer. I'm hesitant about the curved collar too....I wish it were a regular collar, but I bought this on final sale, so can't return it. The length in the body is good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unique Denim jacket The fabric did not remain soft after a wash. The sleeve was tighter than expect. But when you think of buying an unusual piece, this is the one. Madewell selling this jackets for two years, please make something new, think of different colors or fabric. And I always want to try something new.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Supersoft became not-so-soft after washing I have this jacket in the Fremont wash, which I can't find on the site anymore. I was so happy with how comfy it was, it was soooooo buttery soft. BUT!!! After I washed it and air-dried (no tumble dry, in case it shrank), it became stiff and no longer a pleasure to wear. Not sure if it will ever regain the original supersoftness, which makes me very sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you want to move your arms, buy another jacket. This jacket is sooooo cute, and it looks great on. Until you move your arms. The armholes cut are so small the sleeves bind your shoulders and arms and render them useles. For reference, I'm 5'2" and weigh 96 lbs and my arms are like toothpicks. The XXS felt like a straight jacket, so I went up to an XS which fit everywhere else, but again made it difficult to move my arms. I was wearing a thin T-shirt, so forget about wearing anything thicker or layering. The S size is way to big and boxy, so that's not an option either. Why on earth would Madewell design an otherwise roomy jacket with tiny, binding armholes? I tried driving in the XS jacket, and forget it. You can also forget adjusting your ponytail, tipping back a beverage, or reaching a book on a shelf. Cute, my goodness yes. Practical? No.
