I am very fond of this outfit because of its versatility and lack of fussiness. I cobbled it together from eBay and replacement parts, and am only missing the hair thingy. I think the original set with all of the accessories that Keri detailed above was quite a good deal at $22. It is rare indeed to find an intact set today on the secondary market, although the clothing pieces are usually readily available.
I like that the colors are relatively neutral. The fact that the jacket actually buttons tickles me. The pants fit our chubbier PM dolls, which is also a plus. The shoes are the only draw-back; while cute, they don't stay on for me, and would not be my choice for such an outfit. I'd rather see slip-on tennies. I give it an A- because of the shoes.
I've wanted this outfit for so long, and I finally found it secondhand! My set only has the pants, shirt, jacket, and sandals. These pieces are so easy to mix and match! I love Coconut too, so this is a great outfit for the girls to wear when they take her outside for a walk. A+
This is a great, versatile outfit with real mix-and-match capabilities. Ashley has claimed it, and it fits both her PM and Mattel versions!
The jacket - I'm glad AG has finally included a basic denim jacket in it's set! This one is made of good quality dark blue denim, thin enough to seem scale on the doll. The pockets are contrast-stitched in white, and the buttons can actually work! And I'm so glad there's no embroidery or anything so this can go with other pieces. A
The shirt - my sister had the matching girl's shirt, both are just adorable! Made of thickish soft cotton, Coconut in screenprinted and doused with glitter. Unlike the girl version, there's no rear-view of Coconut on the back, just velcro. The shirt has a bit of stretch and fit on PM Ashley easily. While I think AG overdid it with Coconut during these years I really like this piece. A+
The khakis - Ashley is always fairly hesitant to wear the khakis as they seem slightly feminine with their fitted shape and flared, slitted bottoms. They have real pockets and belt loops and velcro at the fly. They were even big enough to fit PM Ashley, our fattest doll! A
The sandals - didn't really care too much for the sandals, they're denim with a big platform, foam heel. I don't know why AG makes slides for doll feet, they just fall off! Also, the embroidered flowers make them seem a bit girly. We usually pair the set with the gray sneakers instead. B-
The ponytail holder - heh, I really liked this ponytail holder but it's gone AWOL at present. It had a lot of stretch and I loved the sparkles woven into the texture. Some of the pink strands started to pull out so it's slightly delicate, but great for ponytails. (If your set doesn't have it, though, it's no great loss. ) A

Adorable set! This is really versatile and great for mix and match. The little jacket is just love. The top is sweet (I remember requesting the one for girls), and the pants fit well on PM girls as well. I actually also love, love, love the little shoes... they slip off a lot, but they are SO darn cute! Wendy is actually wearing the shoes at the moment with a blue tank and bermuda shorts from Liberty Jane.
I just purchased this item from a board member and I think it is quite possibly our favourite AG outfit! I echo what the others have said about the shoes not staying on well, but I am going to stick those fuzzy furniture pads on the inside of the upper and then I think they'll stay on perfectly.
Love the jean jacket and the khakis - endless mix and match potential. The little Coconut t-shirt is adorable - she's even sparkly. An outfit that my eight year-old would love to wear.
This outfit is great for mix and matching. I love it together, but when you take the basic pieces and match them with other clothes, it's awesome. The jean jacket can be used for any season, the coconut t-shirt has the glittery detail, and the pockets on the pants aren't fakers. The shoes are cute, but they don't always stay on. But they're sandals and they match a bunch of things. The hairtie is fragile so watch out for that so it doesn't unravel. I lost the watch unfortunately.

I love the pants that come with this outfit. Our Emma (#7) is PM and has a big bottom and can usually only wear leggings or stretchy pants (I can certainly relate!) but these khaki cargo capri pants fit her so well! I wish I could get long pants and jeans for her that fit like these!!!
On the flip side, they are really too large on our brand new Marie-Grace doll who has a slimmer and hippy figure.
