I took the advice found in other reviews and ordered up a size and, as advised, it was a good fit in the larger size. The vest is simply and classically designed with a nice weight to it; the two way zipper is an added bonus.

Beautifully made but no pizzazz. I usually wear a small. The medium was too little, the large way too big. But the red color is fabulous, and the price was so good that I decided to experiment. I kept the large, laundered it with warm water and baby shampoo in the washer and dried it on medium heat. The vest drew up just enough to fit properly--amazing how well it washes--but there's no way around it. It's boxy and a little old-ladyish. I wear it with a black turtleneck and a big wraparound scarf, so it's fine for chilly offices and casual wear. Wouldn't buy it again though.

Warm vest but high collar didn't feel good against my neck. Would be fine if I wore a turtleneck. (Not-too) heavy zipper seems like it would last. Fitted. Ran small; as others have suggested, order up a size if you want to wear anything of substance under it.
