Party Jacket that will last
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 December 2019
As a garment manufacturer and importer for the last 20 years + here my review of the black jacket.
The outer fabric is flocked poly viscose which gives a nice soft hand feel similar to velvet but softer handle, the design is not a print but a heat emboss on the fabric which could be a total tacky mess but is done well and gives a good shiny paisley contrast in a slightly dark brown hue on the black base, it works well and looks classy on the garment, buttons are dark brown with a crested design.
Make up is ok on these garments from China much better than It Would be from Bangladesh, the sleeve insertion ( critical) is ok with no puckering at all although it could do with a firmer shoulder roll, the garment has interlinings on the chest panel which give a good drape and some extra weight, the lapel is a smart narrow cut width but could do with some heavier interlining as it feels thin, the Inside lining is good heavy suit standard quality and won’t fray on first wear and inserted with a nice silver Zig Zag Feature stitch.
The outer garment has two jet pockets with top flaps nicely done and an internal jet pocket again nicely finished. The garment is nicely trimmed with no loose threads.
The garment arrived in a poly bag and not too creased,only needs a light steam, be careful with an iron on the surface as it will melt if the iron is too hot.
All in all put with the right gear this will pass off as a good quality party jacket and well worth the few extra quid over the cheap stuff out there, this is a proper garment not a throw away printed polyester piece of rubbish.
Size wise I’m 44” chest XL fits perfect although long in the arms, knowing sizing can be an issue I ordered XXL first and it buried me.
Have given it 5 stars as it’s totally fit for purpose as a party jacket, comfortable in wear and cut and a genuine offer with thought from whoever did the spec and made it, nice job.
