"This vest was washed one time and ironed but it still puckers (the lining sags and shows)."

"I loved the vest but unfortunately it was too big and I was afraid the small might be too small so I returned it - which is very unusual when I order from Orvis - I would say
99.9% of the time I keep and love my purchases. Sorry not this time.

"I wasn't sure I'd like a stretch cord vest, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a good fit (my regular size large) with the armholes being adequate. It does not have a bulky look. It's a nice wine color with a hint of blue, and I'm delighted about that as I'm sick of the yellow-based colors and would love to have some blue-based choices. This vest goes perfectly with the plaid Western shirt Orvis offers. The only negative is that the lining puckers just a touch inside the bottom of the front. I hate the bother of fixing it, but who knows if there would be another problem with an exchange. I'm pleased with it otherwise so I'll just take care of it and make it perfect."

Disappointing,
November 25, 2012
By: FloristLady
"This vest is the style and color I was looking for. I need size XS and not all Orvis vests are XS so I was pleased to see this was. XS usually sells out quickly so I ordered this at full price. What a disappointment. The back of the armholes have a big gap that sticks out like wings. The nap of the fabric looks odd in places, and the button holes are misshaped. I wondered if this would look better if I soaked it overnight in cold water and then washed it according to directions. But then I decided that for what I paid I should not have to try that. I am sending it back and I would not wear it if they gave it to me free."

"I HAVE BOUGHT 2 PAIRS OFi BLUE JEANS AND WILL NOT PURCHASE ANY MORE LONG PANTS FROM ORVIS..I i AM 81 YEARS OLD AND STILL WANT TO LOOK STYLISH. THE PANTS SHOWN IN NEW YORK CITY HAVE BOOT CUT AND NARROW LEG WIDTHS . OrvisJEANS HAVE WIDE WIDTH LEGS PANTS FOR WOMEN . LONG PANTS WITH BOOT CUT WIDTH AND VERY NARROW pants leg width make womenl look thiner and lovelier."

Luxurious vest,
October 13, 2012
By: MorganP

"The rich, soft pincord and satiny lining impressed me as soon as I opened the bag. The fit is typical of Orvis's generous cut: I had no trouble buttoning the medium all the way down (where my wide hips often present problems), the wide armholes are cut so they flare out in front, and the bust is ample and then some for a 36C. Having 5 buttons keeps the front from gaping. I originally ordered the merlot but got fooled by the photo into thinking it would be a deep red; instead, it's well-named for the dark, bluish purple of a very big, young merlot wine. I'll try again for a color better suited to my wardrobe."
