I never expected to love this jacket as much as I do. I was on the search for the perfect olive green utility jacket (to fill the hole in my heart where my unfortunately cheap and oversized Old Navy Jacket used to live) when I spotted her. The camo really is very muted, and I love the hidden drawstring waist.. it adds a feminine touch to an otherwise masculine piece. I tried it on and was immediately sold by the fit.
I wear this little lady constantly with light colored tunics, my COH rockets, ankle boots and vintage bracelets. She goes with just about everything, and is one of the favorite & most worn members of my closet.

This jacket is the first thing in a while that I've bought and loved from Anthropologie, and I have been wearing it most days since picking it up. In contrast with another reviewer, I actually sized up in this jacket (I bought this in a regular S, but I'm 5'1'' and normally petite XXS/XS). It was the only size left in the store, but I'm glad that turned out to be the case because I might not have tried sizing up otherwise. Like most army-style jackets, this one really looks best looser, not fitted tightly to the body. Since it's not lined, being able to layer a sweater of decent thickness will be useful in wearing this jacket through winter in the northwest. As I'm short, I often cuff the sleeves once so that they end just at the wrist -- uncuffed, they reach my knuckles.
The camo print is subtle in person, making the jacket more of a neutral with an interesting detail than a costume-y piece. The silhouette is clean and neat, without any excessive decoration. I do wish it were lined, but the quality otherwise seems fine.
If you don't already have a similar style of jacket, this one's a great contender. My current uniform consists of mid-calf lace-up boots and skinny jeans with a nubby, textured sweater and this jacket on top. Throw on one or two layered necklaces and only minimal earrings/rings/other jewelry for the best balance of delicate and rugged.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Loquita Another lovely jacket from Sanctuary
Sanctuary has yet to fail me in terms of jackets, and this camo piece is no exception. I had been watching it for a while and was impressed by the reviews so I didn't hesitate when I saw it on sale (although I'm pretty surprised it even made it to the sales rack). I agree with the other reviewers - this jacket runs a bit large, but I stayed with my usual size small in order to have plenty of room for heavier layering...plus I simply like the slightly oversized look for this piece in particular. It has great details and overall quality. I can see myself wearing this often with lots of brass jewelry, jeans and boots, and like the contrast of the camo paired with lace, too. This jacket has lots of potential, and I'm definitely happy with the purchase.
