الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Answer:

Wa Alaikum Salam 
If the wife wears the jacket with the intention of imitating a man, then it will be impermissible for her to wear it.
If there is no resemblance to a man or there is no intention of imitating a man, then it will be permissible for her to wear it.
