This coat is perfect. It is true to size. I'm a size 2-4 in dresses but ordered a size 6 in the coat so it would be roomy enough for layering underneath if needed. It is very soft and warm and can be dressed up or down. I love it!

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.

At 5'7" 128 lbs. a 6 fits perfectly. Good for Pacific coast(Seattle) mild winters. (Not good for MN.) Throw over slacks for a dressy dinner look, or over long skirt to opera or party. Use on plane over jeans to keep legs warm. Also keeps you looking more sophisticated in airports instead of a jacket.

I've been looking for a replacement for my long black coat for a long time. Not until this coat did I find the one I wanted: soft, drapes well, and accommodates a suit jacket underneath (I'm 5'4" and ordered a 10P in this coat--the coat falls mid-calf, just perfect). It's also difficult these days to find a long coat with a vent in the back, and this one has it--I find vents make walking easier, and the coat drapes better, too. You can pull the coat in tighter around you (if you like) with an inner sash that goes through a loophole on the edge of the left side of the coat (the right side goes over the left when you belt it). My husband likes it too! Great buy, beautiful coat, and very glad I found it!
Pros: Dressy or casual, Good Fit, soft fabric, Tailoring
