I've been searching for a high-waisted jacket to go with all my high-waisted dresses, and I'm pleased to say I have FOUND it!! It's definitely an authentic silhouette (which Frances mentioned earlier), which means it does give you those broader shoulders. Followed the size chart, and the fit is right on (the more I purchase from HoF, the more I find that to be true!).
I was so disappointed when this jacket sold out in my original colour choice (dark brown) before I could place an order, so I snapped up this lovely oatmeal version as soon as it was released. And I couldn't be happier. It creates a wonderful, authentic silhouette, and pairs beautifully with all my high-waisted separates and forties-style dresses. It is quite expensive, but the quality is superb and it's definitely an investment piece.
