Reconstructed Jean Jacket

Reconstructed Jean Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect layering spring denim I just received my jacket in the mail and immediately had to write a review because I felt the online reviews weren’t positive enough for this jacket! I actually love the reconstructed front of this denim jacket! It makes the front much more flattering and offsets the slightly boxy fit of the jacket in the back and shoulders. It creates just enough structure to make the jacket look hip without swallowing you! I personally love the slightly boxy denim jackets so I adore this one for its fresh take. I agree the denim is lighter weight than some jackets but is very soft and comfortable. For this reason, it’s a perfect spring staple! I think the cutoff cuffs add to the feeling of it being light weight but I think this is a plus! If you’re looking for a fun twist on a staple denim jacket, this one is for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for layering This jacket is my new wear-with-anything! The cutoff sleeves are amazing and stay folded when you cuff them. The jacket has a great structure to it and looks great layered over anything. It’s been perfect for the balmy LA winter and I know i’ll keep wearing it year-round. Was a little pricey for what it is, but I wear it often enough to justify the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit! Really like this boxy fit! It is true to size around the torso but has a much looser/boxy feel around the shoulders, arms and back, which I love. Sleeves look super cute rolled up as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Spring in the City! Loved this jacket - ordered my regular size & it fit slightly loose (could fit a thicker sweater under it) without being too baggy / shapeless. It's the perfect weight as we [finally] move into Spring in NYC. Warm over a sweater, but lightweight over a t-shirt / tank / dress. The sleeves are a cute added detail!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this jacket! Love the wash. Wish I listened to the other reviewer to size down though. Purchased size small (normal madewell size). This runs a little large. 120lb. 5'4". I will make it work,drying on high heat now. Got a great deal... Thanks madewell...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVELY The wash of the denim is beautiful. I LOVE the look of the front portion of the jacket, it might be my favorite part. It runs large for my taste so instead of a medium, I got a small. The small is still boxy/fitted enough and hits just right above my butt. I just wish the process to embroider the jacket was easier and more streamlined. If it was slightly thicker, this jacket would be perfect.
