    I loved this coat and wanted to keep it so badly, but it was just a bit too small on top and the snaps wouldn't stay closed so I sent it back. It does belt high up on the waist and some people didn't like that, but I thought it was stylish!

    This coat is much better looking in person than it is online! I was amazed at the quality materials and constructed, plus the modern style. But there are a couple things you should know: 1) It weighs a ton! For me, this doesn't make it uncomfortable to wear, but it could be an issue when hanging it up. Because the sleeves (and therefore, the shoulders) are made of knit, this coat could get really stretched out if you leave it on a hanger for an extended period of time. Because it's so heavy, you really need a padded hanger (or 2!) to keep the shoulders from getting misshapen. During spring and summer I would strongly recommend folding this coat instead of leaving it hung up. 2) I agree with another reviewer who said the waist is set high on this coat. I am short waisted, so this type of coat usually looks good on me. But even for me, the waist falls almost right under the bustline - almost too high. If you are long waisted, this coat probably wouldn't look good on you.

    This is a fun coat, nice and warm, and very different. The snaps open easier than I would like, but I have not found it to be an issue. It is actually very well made; I was expecting that it would be more flimsy or cheap. It has very nice quality for a casual coat, and I love it more the more I wear it.
