    I returned this coat. In the picture, it looks like it has a nice drape. In reality, the fabric is thin and shapeless-- like felt--it hangs like a rag.

    Nice, mid-weight coat. Somewhat dressy. Use for work or going out.

    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.

    I like the color and the feel of the fabric. But, when I put it on, it hung like a bag. It had no shape at all. The collar was lower than I thought. You would definately have to have a scarf in cold or wind conditions. Overall, I wasn't pleased and returned it.

    The fabric and design is beautiful but the coat is tailored more like a blazer with narrow armholes and shorter, slimmer sleeves. I'm glad I ordered a size larger. I'm a size 16 which would normally be a 1x and I'd have room for a bulky sweater or blazer underneath. I ordered a 2x and I can only wear a blouse or lightweight sweater under this coat. The classic design fits my style even if it has limited function.
