I love this jacket. It is comfortable because it is stretchy. It is long and has a flattering fit. I ordered one size smaller after reading the reviews and it fit perfectly. I'll get a lot of use out of this.
iT IS PERFECT
Thanks to the reviews before me who suggested ordering a size down. I am 5'5" / 132 and normally wear an 8. I took their advice and ordered a size down - size 6. This jacket is SO GREAT!! I like it because it is extremely well made - even without a lining the inside is very "viewable". The material makes it so comfy yet it looks so professional. This is a great piece to add to my wardrobe.
I originally ordered this in a 10. The measurements listed would indicate this is my size. However, it was much too big. So I returned and got an 8. The 8 is perfect. The sleeves are long enough, the length is long (to cover the bottom). Will look great with jeans or slacks. Can be dressed up or down. It is not lined, and the material has stretch, so very comfortable, especially for travel. I would suggest you size down. It is plenty spacious. I have wanted this jacket for a long time, and so glad it finally went on sale.

When this jacket arrived, I was so excited! It was the best Mail order purchase I ever made. The jacket is timeless and is very well made. I will enjoy wearing it with the matching pants and with other outfits.

This is a wardrobe staple!
This jacket is classy and classic with an edge from the cut and length. It is made from a rich feeling fabric and very well crafted. Fit is true to size. I love it.
Padaro Knit Jacket
This is a beautiful jacket. I am a size 4-6 and very tall. The 6 I ordered was fine as well as nice and long. I did have to alter the waist in just a bit. It is just the right weight for Florida winters.
Disappointed in this blazer
I loved the look of this blazer but it was way too large when it arrived. In addition, I found a hole in one of the sleeves after I wore it just once. I knew I could not say if I had caused it or if it arrived in that condition so I took it to my tailor to repair. I also had her take in the blazer and shorten the sleeve length. Since I had ordered the smallest size, I could not exchange for another size anyway. I still like it and the hole is almost not noticeable. I also ordered the matching pants which were quite long. Since I wore with boots I did not shorten them. Good thing since I followed the instructions and washed in cold water with other black clothing and put them in the dryer on the delicate setting. They shrunk substantially and the side seam is puckered. This suit was not inexpensive and I am extremely disappointed. Will never order from Territory Ahead again; the quality has gone way down since I ordered previously.
I received this blazer a few days ago, and sent it to the dry cleaners to be pressed, since mail order items always arrive with wrinkles. I LOVE this blazer!! The picture is nice, but doesn't really show what you're getting. This was MUCH nicer than I expected. I am actually ordering a second one (my husband's idea). I am 5' 8" ~145 pounds, and I love that this is long - it falls below my rear, so it's a great look for skinny jeans or leggings with boots. The fabric is a heavy ponte, and the stretch makes it comfortable. Unlike other reviewers, I found it true to size. I have broad shoulders and wear a 12, which I ordered, and like the fit. The buttons are not attractive and are a little too small for the buttonholes, so I will change them, and use very different buttons for the 2nd blazer. I will wear this a ton all winter.
Runs very large
Beautiful and beautifully made, however it runs VERY large, especially across the shoulders. One size smaller than my usual is still way too big. Debating on returning for exchange or having alterations. Both cost extra $$

I love this jacket. But the fit is much looser than the way it fits the model in the photo displayed. It runs large. I wish I had bought a size smaller.
Lovely fabric and fit!
The fabric and fit of this jacket is amazing! It has a beautiful drape yet feels substantial. It can be dressed up or down. You can't go wrong with this jacket!
