Exactly what I was looking for!

I was searching all over for a long, stylish, and WARM winter coat, and I had a pretty specific idea in mind for what I wanted. In particular, I wanted one with a hood because I often let my hair air-dry, and a hood keeps my noggin warmer on winter mornings without smooshing my still-wet hair under a hat. This checks all of my must-have features: hood, heavy weight / warm, slanted (and deep!) side pockets, and a stylish silhouette that doesn't make me look like a marshmallow. I do wish it came in other colors, but I was okay with black since this fit all my other criteria. For size reference, I'm just under 5'4" with a short torso and long legs, and the bottom hem hits just under my knee. Although I typically wear a size 4 in pants and small or medium in tops, I ordered the size 8 because I wanted to make sure the sleeves were long enough to cover my wrists and the shoulders were not too tight. I probably could've worn the size 6, but I like to wear heavy sweaters in the winter, so the size 8 should be perfect for that. Hopefully the stitching holds up with time, but it is heavy and feels well-made, so I'm optimisitic!
