Women's Praise the Cord Jacket
Super cool double collar styling, but?..
A petite sizing of this jacket would be nice to pick from however, having said that even if petite was available I'd still give the quality of the material an average rating. It's very thin and flimsy. If the corduroy were more substantial, the collar would stand up (to accentuate the double collar) and the jacket would feel like it's worth the money spent. I chose "True to size" but I believe for this particular jacket, true to size would best fit taller women. I'm 5'3", 125 pounds and I ordered the Medium because I don't like garments tight around my shoulders. The length was too long for me and the torso was a bit too boxy although the description mentions a 'contoured fit'. I'm sure this jacket would fit someone who it taller and without wider shoulders, or who is long waisted, very nicely. Sadly, I returned the jacket.

very well made but thinner than I expected
The color was very handsome, the pin-whale of the corduroy is micro fine. The fabric is very thin, so this is more a visual piece than one to provide warmth. The detail Is awesome! I just needed a piece that would be more coat warm, not coat fashion:)

comfy, great stretch, not as flattering as picture
Overall this jacket is comfy and has great stretch. I love the style of the double collar and front buttons. It's not heavyweight, but certainly enough to layer over a sweater in the early fall or late spring. My reservation is about the sleeves and the lack of contouring, which is not overall flattering. It's still a comfortable wear, but I would like to see a bit more shape and less of a boxy approach.

Great with jeans.
Great with jeans but not with anything more than VERY casual. 5-stars for comfort!

Sleeves short and buttoned tight
Overall, I like this jacket. It is thinner than I expected. I wear a medium, which fits well in the body, except that I have long arms and like my sleeves to stay at my wrists when I lift my arms. These sleeves run shorter than I like, and the buttons on the sleeves button tight for a jacket, that is meant to be worn over other layers. My watch does not fit comfortably on my wrist under the tight wrist of the jacket (and I have skinny arms). I suspect that the large would be too big in the body, so I am not exchanging the size.

A Lovely Jacket!
I've been on the hunt for a dark grey "jacket" for a long time and originally found this early in my search. However I didn't get it because, and this is my only gripe, I think the price is just way too high. But a few months later I still hadn't found what I had in mind, so I returned to this option and courtesy of a Cyber Monday sale, went ahead and made the order....
....and I'm really glad I did. The large fits my generally-size-12 frame well (I'm 5'8" tall and tend to weigh between 155-170 lbs depending on my stress levels and the time of year...lol!), the corduroy is so fine gauge that my husband thought the material was suede, and the jacket has just enough spandex to be perfectly stretchy for ease of movement. I love the dark-but-not-too-dark grey color, the stand up double collar is really cute, and I think the zipper+buttons styling is a nice touch to the design. In short, I love the jacket.
I still think it's priced too high, mainly because this isn't a thick or even medium-thick jacket, it's more of a layering piece, but that said, the quality is very good, the styling is flattering and cute, and it fits well to size. I've been a Sahalie fleece customer for a few years now and I'm happy to say that this first non-fleece purchase has worked out very well!

I feel so beautiful when I wear this jacket!
This jacket has a style that makes me feel special! Hard to say exactly why.
It is tremendously flattering in how it follows the shape of your body but gives you room to move. I have worn it as an outer layer and underneath a winter coat...more like a sweater. It is the most favored item that I have purchased in several years!
