I loved this jacket in the charcoal color and wore it quite a bit when I first got it. I regretfully sent it to Goodwill today as it had pilled so badly that it eventually just looked like a matted mess, and there was really nothing to be done about it.

very cool jacket but pills like crazy
This was my favorite jacket and I always got tons of compliments when I wore it. Unfortunately it didn't take too long before little pills developed all over it that you can't get off.

Beware photo colors
After reading reviews from purchasers of petite & reg. sizes, I hesitated to buy this. But on sale and w/ add'l. discount I decided to go ahead. I ordred the petite in berry in xl, my usual size for an outer layer. I agree w/ reviews that it is not as slim looking as pictured. But the fabric was nice, the pockets flat and the lining smooth. My complaint was the COLOR! Catalog & online photo showed a beautiful deep raspberry, maybe a raspberry-blackberry cross. the jacket I received was kind of red w/ brown tones. Kind of like a cranberry - that is a ""berry"" but not the same as the picture. I decided to return for a large in charcoal. The fit was better. The charcoal is darker than pictured, almost black, but nice. Pockets were also fine on this jacket, the lining had a small hitch on one side. I need to tug to straighten it after I put it on. I may have to snip the thread holding lining to outer layer. Color has been an issue w/ about half the things I've ordered from TA. A dusty teal in the photo is more gray toned, a rose pink toward the peachy side is really a rose w/ lavendar undertones.
