Closeouts. Every woman needs a fun fashion coat or two, and Ethyl's Gold Jacquard trench coat will light up the city wherever you go -- a traditional double-breasted style in a not-so-traditional metallic gold brocade with jet-black buttons.

Well, this is a different type of jacket. Not everyone likes it, but I do. Very well made and comfortable. When I ask my sister if she liked it she said she wasn't sure. Mom said I pull it off. Anyhow, not a mainstream look.

Ordered a Medium in this jacket, as another reviewer who sounds like she wears a Small (5'1") recommended going one size up.
I agree, as the waist on a small would be too tight, even though I wear a size 4-6. The shoulders and hips would fit a true size 8 or 10, in my opinion.
It's a beautiful jacket. I'll need to hem the sleeves and move the buttons in a bit to make the chest and hips fit better. Once that's done, it should be wonderful. The fabric truly is lovely, and the black lining on my jacket is truly black in color.
Wish the waist tie were a bit longer, too, but since I sew I'll add a buckle and will cinch up the waist (will have to shorten the waistband). Or not!
It's very lovely fabric, sort of like a dark denim with a gold thread brocade overlay. Very unusual. The price of and quality of the fabric alone, inc. lining, make this pretty jacket well worth the price.

I live in Colorado and the primary reason for this purchase is to help me be extra warm this winter. When I tried it on, I knew that I definately hit pay dirt and I can handle anything Mother Nature gives me. Thanks!!

I bought this jacket because I love black and gold, and the ratings said that it was very elegant on - but the gold is really quite greenish and the fabric is unusual. I am a solid medium, once in a while a small, but this fit rather tight in the waist and across the back, so it will have to go back. Too bad, I had high hopes for this coat.....not as cute as they say it is though.
