This coat has a classic style, and will become a wardrobe staple for me. I was a little surprised at how light and unstructured it is, but that actually makes it more versatile. Worn over a suit jacket, it appears more business like without adding bulk. Over a casual shirt and jeans, it is rather like an elegant bathrobe. I have not yet tested it in very cold weather, but it seems that without layering it would not be suitable for temperatures far below freezing.

Tried on a size 14 at the store - beautiful, classy, elegant, except the shoulders were too big. Ordered a 12 online, but it didn't have the nice A-line fit in the body that the 14 did. I didn't think there would be so much difference between a 12 and 14. Plus the belt loops were sewn on at radically different heights. The coat, overall, didn't work for me enough to take the time to fix the belt loops. It also showed me that I'll probably be happier with a coat that doesn't have a belted waist. Beautiful fabric, having a button closure to secure was good, then the belt shapes the coat. I'm sure it's warm, though I didn't do more than try it on inside, and returned it.

I have been searching for a dress coat for years and I have finally found perfection. This coat is GORGEOUS! I am an attorney and needed a coat that will fit well over my suit jacket. This coat is a beautiful addition to my professional wardrobe. It is soft and very rich feeling. The length is perfect. There are no cons to this coat. I am very, very satisfied.
