Closeouts. There's an artisan quality about the Alma boiled wool coat from Country Fashion by Venario. Made from a European-caliber fabric and fully lined, this duster-length beauty makes a wonderful statement piece.

This coat has me in a bit of a quandary, size-wise. I am 5'10" and 165 lbs, broad shoulders. An XL was way too big so I got an L, which is still a bit big in the shoulders. But, if I sized down, the sleeves would be shorter. Also, the sleeves are narrow and because the coat is lined and thus does not stretch, I think I would be immobile in a smaller size. So, a bit of a dropped shoulder, and thus a slightly frumpier look than necessary, it is. The width of the bottom part doesn't help with this, but that gives the coat a nice weight. Just too bad they ran out of buttons just below the waist.
For a more formal look, which this coat would lend itself to, I would go to a M.
This is a light coat for outdoors or a really warm sweater for indoors.
