I tried the tweed-y Next one and didn't like it at all.

Where else can I look? Either navy or grey. I am a 12 btw.

Don't they go sloppy looking after afew wears? Uniqlo one definitely does

Love that Whistles one, snow.

Dancergirl Thu 28-Feb-13 16:52:27

I like the Whistles one too! Where did you get the code from snow?

I have a Zara one from last year, it has aged well.
Some here too.

Have bumped the thread but the code for 25% off at whistles is WH25ss13 I tried it on last year and it was a great fit - black one was like moss stitch rather than sweat shirt fabric, felt less likely to go baggy, but I've ordered the grey one this time.
I want to try this black jacket from Me and Em....just fancy a change of style as I have a navy cotton blazer with a good stretch through it, already from Banana Republic, so I don't want another dark blazer, its a bit too samey. I'm in no panic for it so I'm waiting on a code.

Is the Whistles one any good for short people?

snoworneahva Thu 28-Feb-13 18:34:12

I'll let you know on Monday - I'm 5 8" it's arm length that I normally struggle with.

Snoworneahva, I bought the Whistles Lena blazer in black. I'm 5' 9" and also often have issues with arm lengths but this fits!

I have ordered this one from H & M. I will let you know how I get one. It's due to be delivered today or tomorrow.

I'm 5'4 and bought that whistles one last year in black. It wasn't v flattering on me. The fabric is too thick, and something about the cut and the way it hangs. I still prefer the Uniqlo cut and sewn jacket I bought three years ago

I've got the Topshop one and it doesn't bag. The dark blue one looks more expensive than the other colours, IMHO.

Whistles jersey arrived - sleeves are just long enough, could do with a bit longer but I have issues with arm length. Quality of fabric is spot on, it's thick and looks knitted rather than sweatshirt stuff - which was what I was after. It's also washable. Length - it falls mid hip - a good few inches above my widest part, so it's very flattering. Not too snug around the waist.

All in all very pleased, although it has a small snag in the fabric so it's being sent back for a replacement but otherwise it's a keeper.

I ordered the Hush one this week. It was nice but wasn't sure so i've sent it back.

I've ordered the Hush biker style to try next. And the Whistles one in grey.

Bunbaker Fri 01-Mar-13 17:18:45

My H & M one arrived and is a perfect fit. I had a load of friends round when it arrived and they were all very complimentary when I tried it on. It isn't really jersey though, even though it has a bit of stretch in it. I am very pleased with it.

Dancergirl Fri 01-Mar-13 17:29:03

annianni what was wrong with the Hush one? I've ordered the Whistles grey one to try but not sure if I want grey or navy?

What do you all think of this Kaliko one?

I ordered this one the other day and it arrived today and is wonderful :

Grey, cut well, slightly unusual and fabulous price.

Dancer I ordered the hush one in charcoal, pale grey and navy.

The charcoal didn't look right next to my hair (long brunette)
The navy was lovely and I did actually hang it up as a keeper because it looked nice with my jeans.
The pale grey just didn't seem to look right.

But I then saw the biker style and thought that might be better for me, more casual.

If the biker style is no good, I might order the navy again at a later date.

I think I want a navy jacket and a pale grey one, but different styles iykwim.

That kaliko one looks a bit smart for me. But i'm probably going to JL next week, so i'll have a look at it then.

Glad the Whistles grey seems to be working out for people although I had an email to say mine will be delivered on the 5th. The 5th?!! <wails>

Have my eye on the Hush navy but I shall wait and see how this next wave of purchases pans out for me before ordering more. Have a chequered history with Hush.

chubbymomie2012 Fri 01-Mar-13 18:40:56

Look at Mantaray in Debenhams. They have a gorgeous one they call grey but I think it's more blue/grey. I have bought it and love it. It's £40 x

snoworneahva Fri 01-Mar-13 21:25:59

I've just ordered this jersey biker jacket can't decide between blazer or biker jacket.

Annianni Sat 02-Mar-13 10:09:08

There's a grey marl Hush jacket in a M/L on ebay, new without tags if anyone's interested.
It finishes tomorrow and was at £4-20 when I last looked.

Dancergirl Sat 02-Mar-13 15:11:50

Thanks anni I think now it's a choice between the Hush navy one and the Whistles grey one.

Thank goodness for MN, how would we all shop without it? smile

Ok not jersey but I love it! What do you think? Bit pricey though [[http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=21&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&productId=8468650&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208526&parent_categoryId=203984&pageSize=20&refinements=category~[209745|208526]&noOfRefinements=1]]

Not usually a fan of them, but I like this look of this white stuff grey jersey blazer

I have ex swimmers shoulders so need to hit the high street to try on them all on - everything I buy online line pretty much gets sent back.

I am quite tempted by the Kaliko one. Just found it with 20% off on the Kaliko website and free p and p if anyone else is interested.
