A smarter parka!
If you want a parka with a little more sense of style, then this linen jacket is just for you. This substantial linen fabric gives the jacket a great drape and feel - just perfect for warding off chilly spring mornings. Finished with an adjustable hood and button-fasten storm flap for extra protection against the elements. Fully lined for comfort. 100% linen. 100% polyester lining. Dry clean.

Approx. garment length: 81cm/32"
Why can't this garment be washed - neither linen nor polyester should shrink.

Our recommendation is to dry clean this parka to avoid any possibility of the garment shrinking. You could try hand or machine washing on a very low temperature but we wouldn't be able to guarantee its performance afterwards.

Please would you advise me of the hip measurement of the XL size

Jackie

In that size this Parka measures 54 3/4" around the bottom

I was wondering how tight fitting this parka was. I like mty jackets quite roomy with long sleeves. Although I am a small size 10-12 (UK) I am unsure whether to size up to give this jacket a more relaxed fit? Could you advise, kind regards, Nancy.

Nancy

I can advise that the garment chest measurement on the US size small (UK 10-12) is approximately 41 inches. The US size medium (UK 14/16) is approximately 43.5 inches.

Heavier than expected

Jacket heavier than expected. When one thinks of linen it is usually something lightweight and cool. This jacket is of a fairly coarse weave (think flour sack). I was surprised to find that the lining was a pale blue check rather than a colour similar to the jacket. I don't like that the binding on the hood seams is also blue and when the hood is in use the binding can be seen. One other downside is that although the description quotes "button adjustable cuffs" this is only achieved by moving the one button. I would expect two buttons on each cuff from the description. Given all the issues I am actually quite pleased with the jacket as it is weighty enough for cool spring and autumn days. It also has good deep pockets that will accommodate a purse and phone, no need to carry a bag when just our for a walk.

Useful but could be more flattering

I ordered the jacket in the pale blue initially, but when it arrived it was so pale it was almost white. Thankfully the khaki is a warm natural colour. As for style, Lands End should know that placing a drawstring waist at natural waist level in a floppy, unstructured jacket designed for the larger figure is very unflattering - think 'sack of spuds'. It's a basic plus size styling principle that it should be placed a couple of inches above the usual line.
