        As much as I like this jacket, I am considering returning it because the teal color is much darker than what was pictured in the catalog and online. I would be interested in trying the red but I am afraid of what the true shade of red would be. If the company would allow free shipping for an exchange I would take the chance, but I don't want to pay for shipping back the article two times if I am not satisfied either time.

        I ordered this jacket in 2 sizes (my usual size and one larger) because I wanted to be sure to get the best fit. Sadly, neither jacket worked for me and I returned both of them. The two sizes were virtually identical; the drape was different from one side of the front to the other; the sleeves were extremely long; and the front flaps/seams were not as pictured. The fabric was fabulous and the color was luscious;I actually took the jacket to a seamstress to see if it could be altered to fit.

            I use this to attend symphony, opera and other 'dressy' venues. Honolulu is not a dress-up place, but at times, we do! This jacket is easy to wear over a dress or slacks, and it fits well. So far, nothing not great about it.

                  The picture of the teal colored jacket was exactly what I wanted. The one that arrived said it was teal, but looked nothing like the picture. More like a very dark green. Called NG to discuss a return and they graciously offered to send a pre-paid mailer. Don't have it yet, but I appreciate the service.

                  Comments about Boteh Embroidered Silk Jacket:

                  This was a Christmas gift from my sister and I love it. In spite of other comments, the color is very close to that pictured, though subtle, and goes with any neutral outfit (black, white, taupe, grey). The fabric is rich and the embroidery beautifully decorative, though unobtrusive. I'll wear this for many years to come. I hope to get the red next.
