If I could give this coat six stars, I would! Reading other reviews, I was worried, when I ordered an XL, that it would be too big, and with sleeves so long my hands wouldn’t show. None of that is true! I'm a stocky 5’ 10” and this coat fits exactly like I wanted it to. I can wear a heavy shirt and vest underneath, and not feel stuffed. The cuffs fall comfortably at my wrists. I bought this coat just in time for a New Year’s trip to New York City, that included a night out during the visit of “Winter Storm Hercules.” I was comfortable with an aforementioned shirt and vest under this coat, walking around Times Square. I also have to say that a coat that buttons up is so liberating, considering some of the temperamental zippers that some of my more recent coats have had. Even with just two buttons buttoned, this coat is still warm and protective. The seven pockets too, are exceptional for a simple wool coat. An awesome STP bargain with a coupon.

I usually wear XL so I can layer under it. This fits in XL like other coats I own. weighs 3 lbs 8 ounces in XL. Bought it for use as a field coat. Would have given it 5 stars if the back stowage pocket was backed by wool rather than the nylon lining. Appears made well and is nice enough to wear about anywhere really. A really good mid weight wool coat. A couple extra buttons included.

Due to other reviews stating that the Jacket is sized big, I bought the L instead of an XL and the large is perfect. Excellent coat for use over just a T-shirt or as a final layer for a plentitude of outdoor activities from casual wear to hiking, working etc., makes the casual dresser look stylish. Bought this jacket for my move back to Alaska!

This jacket is very comfortable, not heavy. It is handsome and similar to a sport coat only somewhat thicker fabric and fabulous exterior pockets. It has a very well concealed interior pocket that would be useful for a cell phone. The reviews from the Woolrich website (where it is no longer available) contain repeated instances of the coat being considered too large for the size with the suggestion that one should order a size smaller than usual. They are numerous and worth checking. I am 6' 2" and weigh 210. The large fits well with room for a sweater underneath.
