I'm a size 14/XL, and it's very difficult (read: impossible) to find a jean jacket that has sleeves I can roll up without the risk of restricting blood flow in my arms. This jacket is an answer to all my prayers! I can roll the sleeves TWICE without feeling restricted. It's comfortable, flattering, and honestly the best jean jacket I've ever bought."
