Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to any wardrobe!! I wanted this vest last year, or at least last years version of it, so when I saw it offered again I snapped it up…..and so glad that I did!! This vest is so cute and really warm. I have layer it under and over a blazer and also worn it on its own over a flannel shirt. Bottom line this is just a great piece to add to any wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Vest I love this vest, I wear it all the time. It's very warm and looks nice. It does run small though. I wear a medium top usually and got a large. It's fitted but not too snug so it easily fits over layers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Holidays This vest is adorable on. It does run slightly small, so I suggest sizing up. I usually wear smalls in Madewell tops, but I bought this in a Medium and besides fitting a bit large under the armpits, the waist fits perfectly. Quality is excellent. Super thick materials and lined with fleece. LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never take this off I LOVE this vest. It is my favorite. I've worn it pretty much every day since I bought it. It is very warm, super comfortable, and so darn cute. The quality is amazing, thick and made...well. The only down side is that it catches lint easily. But that might be because I wear it 24/7. I'm obsessed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute vest! Bought this vest on sale... I read the reviews about the vest being too short and tight around the waist. I did not have this issue but I know every body is different. I am 5'9 130 lbs and found the vest hit right at my hip and zipped up no issue with a size Medium. Love the color of interior and exterior, arm holes nice size, good fit. ONLY big issue I have is the zipper scratches my chin so I've constantly got to fold the top zipper down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is what I wanted. I love vests for cold weather and I adore buffalo check, so this was a no-brainer, especially when it went on sale. Like other reviewers mentioned, it's a little cropped but not dramatically so. I'm between a small and medium in Madewell tops and I got a medium in this. A small would have been too snug. As is, I can zip it up comfortably and also leave it open. It's stylish and comfortable. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that it doesn't fit perfectly and isn't super flattering, but I'm keeping it anyway because it's a nice staple piece to have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits small compared to Madewell sizing Madewell sizing runs larger - I pretty much wear a small in every single thing I purchase. I bought this vest in size Small and it ran like a traditional small, which was too small. I'm average size-chested, but if you have a larger chest, you will want to make sure to size up 1-2 sizes. This was super fitted in all areas. If I were to keep the size and wear it zipped, it would make my shirt bunch out on the bottom. I plan to exchange it for a medium. Also, the shoulder area is thick, so it sticks up a bit. Otherwise, really good quality and looks nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too big under the arms The pattern looks very nice. It is also well made. But the cut under the arms makes it feel bulky and uncomfortable. It doesn't work if you have a small bust size.
