My favorite wool coat

Reviewed by Never enough coats from Bloomington, IN on Friday, November 23, 2012
Fit: I'm a 38R in a suit and the 38R fits quite well. Might not fit as well over a suit but large enough to hold layers while still being relatively fitted.

Warmth: I have found that as pictured it is relatively warm (50s unbuttoned is fine, 30s to 40s buttoned), but there is a fourth button that increases the warmth significantly (down into the teens). I sweat a lot when it is too warm and have mild Raynaud's so I need gloves and a hat by then, but at least my core is warm.

Color: The charcoal is nearly black, not particularly grey.

Pockets: In addition to the two outer pockets, there are three small to medium-sized inner pockets (two drop-in pockets and one hidden zipper pocket, hidden against an inner seam).

Particulars: The pockets all arrived sewed shut and I didn't look at them closely quickly enough. Once I tore them open I found that one of the pockets had a hole in it when it arrived. I sewed it up myself, but it definitely cost a star in having that quality control problem.
