The Optical-print jacket is one of J.Crew's latest arrivals. At first, I thought this jacket was a definite "leave it". But after looking at it some more, I see some things I like about it (like the rolled collar). Ultimately I am just not sure about it.
Since I have not seen this jacket in person, I have no clue whether the fabric or shape is nice. I have a feeling this jacket is one of those jackets that looks really awful on the majority of J.Crew shoppers (e.g. me), but über-fabulous on the select few who can pull this look off (e.g. the model in the picture).
I also do not think it is worth the $170 price tag. Especially since it is a three-quarter sleeve jacket. (I find for three-quarter sleeve jackets, that I am more limited in terms of when, season-wise, I can wear it).
Do you own the Optical-Print Jacket? Have you seen this jacket in your local J.Crew store? Do you love it or would you leave it? Do you think it is worth the price tag? Let us know what you think! :)
