If you didn't know, you would assume it's made from some blend of silk and handkerchief linen. The jacket is also really good-quality and very well-made. You don't have the odd strings sticking out like you see on cheaper clothing you buy online. Every stitch is in the right place and perfectly executed. The jacket has a little bit of shoulder padding to maintain the shape.” —Emzet

    Promising Review: “When it first arrived it seemed like it was way too small to heat up a room so I went and bought a tower heater. That one used way too much power so I returned it. This small heater really surprised me by heating my condo up just enough for me to keep the house heater turned off! It's a space saver for sure, but does the job quite well.” —Kayla Turner

    15. Top off your bare arms with an oversized denim shirt, which will offer more flexibility than a closer-fitted jacket or hoodie.
