Tudor Court Milano Tapestry Jacket
Only for a fairy princess
Truly a beautiful jacket. I bought mine in beige and grey. I will pass on my experience to those still wishing at after reading my review.
I was set on keeping it. It looked good and seemed to be well put together. I checked all the stitching and I loved the fit and the length. However, something to remember is the material on this jacket as well as another reviewer wrote of is the material frays easily. Wearing a shoulder purse would not be a good idea nor as I found a fanny purse while driving. By the time I got home, the sleeve that brushed the round clasp on the fanny purse had frayed badly from manuel shifting my car. But if you plan to use a clutch purse with this or something you hold in your hand you will be ok being careful carrying things spontaneously that will abrade it.
Another down side at least for mine that it smelled like it had been printed like ink from a press. If you are highly allergic, then pass this but it could have been just my jacket. I washed it gently by hand and it got rid of some of the smell and peppered it with Febrez to cover it.
If you think you can stay one step ahead of this jacket, go for it though using it just for those times at the opera and such things when only your program brochure will brush against it and maybe someone drives you, etc.
So I was Queen for a Day in this beautiful jacket and then it went back. I don't know if Haband will credit me but I hope so. It should say decorative fabric as the tapestry is silky not cottony so cannot withstand any rubbing or abrading.

Nice looking but.....
The type of material used for this jacket is very delicate. When pulled at the seams (just trying the jacket made holes around the back of the sleeves) the fabric starts to fray. sending mine back.

Love this jacket.
I just ordered this jacket in burgundy. I love the fit and the material is just beautiful. Have had many compliments on it. I found that it ran true to size.

Milano Taperstry Jacket (a little disappointed)
When I received this jacket, I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed. In the picture the colors and patterns are very distinct. In reality the colors and patterns are very muted. it appears to be all one color. The jacket is still very pretty and has a sheen to it that does not show in picture.
I'm sure I will enjoy wearing it.
By the way, you sent me another jacket by mistake which I did not open; will be returning this one for credit.

I bought the tan/gray version, size small. Sizing seems about right. Jacket is unlined. The look is very rich. I has a sheen to it that isn't really seen in the photos. It glows. On my computer the jacket looks dull, gray. I would call the predominate color closer to lightest brown. It's a neutral I would wear with many different colors. Love it.

I ordered me the jacket in Burgandy and a friend the same jacket in Navy. They are both beautiful and fit so well. We both have long arms and surprisingly these jackets fit perfect. Like the other reviewer said, the photo does not show how nice the pattern of the fabric is, Very vivid colors that blend well. I will be able to wear this to church or out to dinner. My husband even commented on how pretty it was.

Love it! It's beautiful. And, like all HABAND clothes, it fits perfectly. The only thing wrong is that the photograph, on line, does not show how beautiful the fabric is. I cannot see the the artistic flowers on it at all. So naturally, i had to write a review to let you know and encourage you to buy it for its beauty sake. Thanks and enjoy.
