by GeoInCalifornia Unique Design! Size Down! Too Heavy for Summer?
Beautiful details. Unique style. Excellent construction. However, the denim weight is too heavy for hot Summer days in Central CA. I absolutely adore it, but have nowhere to wear it. Wish the denim was light weight. The sizing runs large for Pilcro.
SIZE: I ordered my normal size Small for Pilcro and most Anthro Brand tops, jackets and vests. I wear a Medium for most non-Anthro Brands. The Pilcro Avie Denim Jacket fit perfectly in size small. I'm 5'5" tall, 135 lbs, 34D, long torso, narrow shoulders.
FIT: This vest runs large. The front crossed over my chest with almost 2 inches of overlap. The underarms were also too large. The vest tends to sag if worn unbuttoned, since it?s not fitted enough around the arms and shoulders. If you don?t plan to button this vest, then you may want to size down even if you have a larger chest. The length is on the short side as are most Pilcro denim jackets even in regular length.
DETAILS: The Pockets are very small. The buttons include the Pilcro Letterpress logo. The construction is top notch. However, I didn?t like the unfinished denim on the inside of the back cut out. The lace is delicate but nicely stitched on. However, I see this as a weak point that can easily catch and rip.
FABRIC: The denim is heavy weight, soft, and has stretch. Because the lace is delicate, this is hand wash, flat dry.
RECOMMENDED: This would look fantastic worn over a tank with a Maxi Skirt. Size down one size from your normal Anthro Brand size. Size down 2 sizes from your normal non-Anthro Brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shopgirlchic Much better than the white version.
I have already written a review for the white version which I was terribly disappointed in. I ordered this in the hopes that the denim version would be better and it is on all accounts. Quality is good, love the contrast so much better for the lace inset. I do disagree that this runs large, I found this to be very true to size both for this brand and anthro in general. I do still wish it was a bit more cropped, but will get lots of use out of just the same. Very soft and lightweight, I didn't find it to be too heavy for summer weather at all, will make a great edgy topper for maxi skirts and dresses. White one is officially going back now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DenverStacy So unique
I've been on the hunt for a good denim vest so was more than pleased to run across this at my visit to the store yesterday! It's a quality jacket! I think that the price point is a bit on the high side, but it seems whenever embroidery is added...the dollars go up! Regardless of the price, I still bought it. The denim is thick but surprisingly soft! The front of the jacket is longer than the back. Back of it hit me a little higher than the model shot so I think she's wearing a larger size than she needs. Color in the photos is accurate. I loved it so much that I had the sales associate cut the tags off and I wore it out of the store. I'm 5'5" 125lbs and a 34D and the XS was a perfect fit.
