Honed in on the burgundy color offered this fall, but this is online only so no way to try out, even if not color, for size and fit.

I would mostly be interested in it if it works well for a business-casual jacket; it is too spendy and limited use for casual-only wear. Meaning, I like the look of more sporty-casual jackets with pencil skirts--safari, utility--if a bit polished--instead of a serious blazer. Not for "job interview" or major meetings, but for everyday lightweight topper.
Concerns are reviews:
-- that is is very boxy--a bit boxy is okay, but shapeless is meh.
-- Shiny gold buttons--love gold with burgundy as a look, but I don't wear any shiny gold (handbag hardware, jewelry, shoe trims). ? matchy problem?
--sizing? I think I'd have to order 2 sizes if I tried it, to see fitted vs. layering and boxy limits
--"crunchy" fabric--crisp vs crunchy?

Other than that, it looks fun!

Also trying the Talbots linen jacket--it may turn out to look too conservative, but the weight and color is good for summer to fall transition.

ETA photos added: The burgundy in smaller size, olive a size up. Note as in later post update the smaller size is tight, would be tight over sweaters, and looks skimpier from the back (not shown). The size up definitely has "ahh" ease but at cost of being more boxy and outdoorsy.Both are shown with the extra waist snap in play.
