        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.

        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.

                        The color was not even close to the color shown in the catalog or the wed site. Will not buy any thing from National Geographic again.

                                Any simularity between the color shown in the catalog and the item received is purly coincidental. Of course,you can return it at your expence for a full refund less shipping and handling.

                                  This really is a pretty jacket. The color is a teal green not aqua. It's light weight and a good length. My only negative is that the cut seems a bit sloppy across the shoulders in back. Maybe small shoulder pads will improve it, but if it happens to fit you perfectly, you'll be very pleased with this jacket.
