J Crew Factory’s black watch plaid blazer (HO13, 22235, $188) runs 0-14. The color is called hunter navy (HNA). 38% wool, 30% poly, 29% viscose, 3% spandex, 100% acetate lining.
Size 6 vs Size 8 – The Factory blazers have felt too tight in size 6, so I decided to try an 8 to compare. Unbuttoned, the fit is better in the 6 than the 8.
I can button the 6, but it’s a tight fit. I probably wouldn’t wear it buttoned anyway, but it’s nice to have the option. I don’t like the cutaway at the bottom. I feel forced to tuck my blouse if I button the blazer.
Size 8 – The 8 looked better when I rolled the sleeves.
In this pic you can see how wide it is thru the bust area and under the arms.
How do you like Factory blazers? Do you prefer them over retail?
