"Pretty, but snug fit"

Dry cleaning only. Collar and sleeves can be rolled up. Snug fit, I suggest you size up. Also, overpriced for $147.00.

"Timely Teal"

Incredibly perfect for Christmas parties, dinners, etc. but also the same year around for those kinds of events and conferences where you stand out as the speaker.

"beautiful!"

I bought the merlot color. It is a lovely shade of dark red well represented by the photo. The sleeves are a bit too long for me, but who cares! this is a gorgeous garment. Very light weight, making it comfortable to wear indoors.

"Wrong sizing"

If I can I would like to return but not sure I still have the packaging and paperwork. I wish it were available in a different (larger)size that was more consistent with US sizing

"Not what it looks like"

Any simularity between the color shown in the catalog and the item received is purly coincidental. Of course,you can return it at your expence for a full refund less shipping and handling.

"Beautiful jacket"

As much as I like this jacket, I am considering returning it because the teal color is much darker than what was pictured in the catalog and online. I would be interested in trying the red but I am afraid of what the true shade of red would be. If the company would allow free shipping for an exchange I would take the chance, but I don't want to pay for shipping back the article two times if I am not satisfied either time.

"Not tone on tone as expected"

I had looked at this jacket for a couple of years and really liked it in the catalog; however, when I received it, the Merlot version featured purple stitching. I was expecting a tone on tone rather than a contrast. It's a subtle contrast, but I didn't care for it. Perhaps it's different with other colors, but I was seduced by the photographs in the catalog.

"Good quality and style"

The jacket is of very good quality and the style is quite elegant. The teal color is a disappointment but not disappointing enough to return. While a nice color, it is darker than pictured. Good fit.

"Beautiful."

I use it over a black pencil skirt and black shell for somewhat dressy evening wear. I wore it to a nice dinner party. It adds pizazz to an outfit. The color looks great on me. I love the design in the fabric and the silk fabric itself. I like the simplicity of the collar and the cut. It was a reasonable price for the product.

"Boteh Silk Jacket color too dark"

The picture of the teal colored jacket was exactly what I wanted. The one that arrived said it was teal, but looked nothing like the picture. More like a very dark green. Called NG to discuss a return and they graciously offered to send a pre-paid mailer. Don't have it yet, but I appreciate the service.

"Lovely gift"

This was a Christmas gift from my sister and I love it. In spite of other comments, the color is very close to that pictured, though subtle, and goes with any neutral outfit (black, white, taupe, grey). The fabric is rich and the embroidery beautifully decorative, though unobtrusive. I'll wear this for many years to come. I hope to get the red next.

"WOW but woe"

I ordered this jacket in 2 sizes (my usual size and one larger) because I wanted to be sure to get the best fit. Sadly, neither jacket worked for me and I returned both of them. The two sizes were virtually identical; the drape was different from one side of the front to the other; the sleeves were extremely long; and the front flaps/seams were not as pictured. The fabric was fabulous and the color was luscious;I actually took the jacket to a seamstress to see if it could be altered to fit.

"Beautiful jacket"

This really is a pretty jacket. The color is a teal green not aqua. It's light weight and a good length. My only negative is that the cut seems a bit sloppy across the shoulders in back. Maybe small shoulder pads will improve it, but if it happens to fit you perfectly, you'll be very pleased with this jacket.

The jacket is very pretty, though the color is more green than blue. It fit, but the cut was not right on me (particularly the sleeves which are boxy) so I had to return it.

"Fabulous silk jacket"

I use this to attend symphony, opera and other 'dressy' venues. Honolulu is not a dress-up place, but at times, we do! This jacket is easy to wear over a dress or slacks, and it fits well. So far, nothing not great about it.
