Surplus Jacket

Surplus Jacket is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and versatile but large! I love my clothes to fit slightly oversized, but I ended up buying an XS in this! I’m 5’7”, 32DD, size 6/27, and dabble between Small and Medium. I found this jacket only got more fitted in the body as I sized down, so while still having room for more top layers, the top still shows I have a body. If you want a more fitted look definitely size down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday jacket I have been looking for a plain, military style jacket for so long. This one is great for everyday wear! I encourage sizing down. I am 5'3", 125lbs and usually wear a small or a medium in Madewell. Ordered a small and still have PLENTY of room. I like the looser fit but if I wanted a tailored look, I could have even gone with an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS JACKET I am 5'9 and 30 weeks pregnant and the large fit perfectly. I think it will also look nice once the baby is here. I'm usually a Medium or a Large, but for this jacket I was told by the staff to order a size up so that you can layer sweaters under it. If you aren't going to layer sweaters, then you may want to consider ordering your typical size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket, terrible packaging I love this jacket. The color is great (a lovely gold) ,the fit is right-on,and I can see wearing it daily,starting in the spring. But what I really hated was the way it arrived,in a padded envelop. It was badly creased and I'll have to take it to the cleaners to get the creases out. This type of packaging is fine for lighter fabrics,but for something sturdy like a jacket,wouldn't you think it would be shipped in a box?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reminds me of sunflowers Beautiful color (yellow) and pockets are well thought. Fabric is durable and the waist can be adjusted. I wear dark colors, so this is going to be my staple jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, perfect for spring or fall and very nice quality. i bought the mustard yellow one for myself and the green one for my daughter. We both love them and this jacket feels like a staple for my closet. My daughter rolled the sleeves up and it looks so cute on her. I love the yellow color with jeans. Really happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this jacket! It is very comfortable and super cute! I usually wear a small in Madewell tops and i ordered the jacket in a small as well and it fits great! It is more of an oversized style but it has drawstrings on the inside that can be tightened to give it a waist. This is a great jacket for transitioning into spring!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have staple for your closet My new favorite! I’ve searched everywhere for a green jacket and this one is the best. Don’t hesitate, buy this now! The fit is much improved from a previous version that I tried on. The arms run slightly large, but only to make it more comfortable. You could fit a decent sized sweater underneath, but also could wear it with a t-shirt. The slightly large fit doesn’t affect the size you should order. Go with your regular Madewell size. For reference, I’m 5’6” and 135lbs with small chest and wider hips and I ordered a small. The material is heavyweight and the color is accurate on the website. My favorite part is the hidden interior ties to cinch you at the waist, gives it a nice shape!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Didn't think this looked *great* on the model, but took the plunge and was very pleased. Green is not as dark as it looks in the photo. Material is fairly heavy-duty.
