Fit Review Friday! Tech Lux Jacket Garnet

October 26, 2017


Happy Friday!! I'm so glad it's the weekend. I'm super excited because I'm going to New Orleans for a short trip with my husband. We're going to spend Halloween there! I was hoping to check out a ghost tour, but it doesn't look like that will happen. The one I really wanted to see is sold out. I'll try and keep the blog updated while I'm away, but no promises!

Today I have for you the Tech Lux Jacket in garnet. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Define Jackets.


Size 4

As I'm still looking for the perfect fall jacket in a burgundy shade I ordered this in garnet. The color is a gorgeous shade of wine-red. I originally purchased this in my usual size 4 and as you can see it's semi-fitted on me. The upper shoulders and arms are pretty loose. The back is very roomy and I could layer comfortably. This jacket is made of spacer fabric. It's kind of spongy and soft to touch.

I wasn't completely happy with how the arms looked though. I felt they could have been more fitted to avoid the sloppy feel. The sleeves are also ridiculously long. The size 4 didn't look bad, but I thought it could look possibly better, so I went and ordered the size 2 to try.


The size 2 fit much better in the arms and shoulders, but just a touch too fitted in the hips and lower body. The length of the sleeves were still too long, but it's an improvement from the size 4.

Size 2

The jacket looked very flattering from the back. I think it's almost a perfect fit. I have a very short torso which makes it difficult for me to find jackets that really look right and this one comes very close.


The front is almost too fitted in a size 2. What I didn't like is how straight the jacket made my body look from the front. (If anyone is wondering, I placed the tag inside the jacket which is why you see a rectangular shape near my chest.)

Size 2

Verdict? I was really torn. The size 2 is a better fit, but I wasn't completely happy with the sleeve length and how straight my body looked from the front. I ended up returning both sizes, so the search for the perfect burgundy jacket continues. I admit, I was really close to keeping one because of how comfortable I found it to be.

    1. You're totally right. I have to remind myself of that a lot. Otherwise I just tend to keep everything! But I've been pretty good about it lately. This one almost had me though.

      Will definitely post pics from my trip!
