Are you in the market for a new athletic jacket? Lululemon Canada has listed their Tranquility Jacket in the we made too much section for just $59, marked down from $128.
This jacket is all about options. It has a zip off bottom so you can either wear the jacket as a crop, or as a longer (mainly in the back) style. There are epaulettes buttoned at the shoulder, so you can wear your jacket styled like that or with the sleeves rolled up and buttoned inside the epaulettes. The jacket has a very artistic looking front to it when the bottom is attached. While the jacket is supposed to be black, it really looks like a dark grey to me in the pictures. Anyone agree?
Reviews on this jacket are very polarized. Some people really hate the style and are angry at Lululemon for ever making such a jacket. Others really like the crop version of the jacket, and think that Lululemon should just sell the crop version without the bottom attachment. Others really like the modern cut, like this reviewer:
This top is daring and new, only for someone who likes to be cutting edge. The fabric is lightweight and comfortable.
I think the top is really funky, but it does suit only certain personalities. However, there is huge styling potential for this jacket. With a little creativity, this jacket could really appear like four different jackets: in the long form with either sleeves down or up, and in the cropped form with sleeves up or down. Layer it with your routine workout apparel or even see if you can integrate it into your normal wardrobe. I could easily see this jacket paired with a pair of jeans and a tank top or even a chiffon blouse.
The jacket is currently available in sizes 4, 6, 8, and 10. Only size 12 is sold out. The one thing that no one can really dispute is how much of a deal this jacket is right now. Lululemon usually discounts up to about 40% off; however, this jacket is on sale for 54% off the regular price.
Lululemon Canada offers free shipping on all orders. Like all items in the we made too much section, this jacket is final sale. Returns are only allowed due to manufacturer's defect or in the case of Lululemon sending the wrong size.
