Rated 4 out of 5 by Zaramama Lovely Coat, But Arms Too Snug
I loved this coat right out of the box. It looks great on me, and the color red is surprisingly flattering. I don't wear red, as a rule. But I needed a dressy winter coat, and the price was right, so I got the red, and I don't regret it! The cut is a figure-flattering A-line cut. The only problem I have with the coat is that the arms are too snug. I have big arms, however, so that may not be a problem for everyone. I bought the coat in 4X. Another slight thing that some may perceive as a flaw is that the coat doesn't have a button at the collar, so you can't close the collar around your neck. However, the coat isn't heavy enough to wear for really freezing cold days, so if you wear a scarf around your neck, and a turtleneck for cold days, you should be OK. It's definitely not meant for sub-zero temperatures, though. More for mid-30's and up, if you're just going from your car to the door.

I own this coat in both red and black. It's soft, and works well for dress or casual occasions. I like the fact that it's large enough to accommodate a sweater underneath when the weather turns cold, but not overly boxy. (I'm 5'4", 117 lbs and the regular small fits well.)

Oh my! I read customer reviews about this coat, but couldn't have imagined how truly gorgeous it is. Size large fits my curvy frame beautifully (not much room for heavy sweater underneath, but that's not an issue for me,) the fabric is luxurious, and the tailoring is perfect. Even the sleeve length is good! I'm hoping for a cold winter so I get a chance to wear this beauty a lot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eunice Good coat
I ordered the blue. The fabric came wrinkled but the color is good and it seems like a basic car coat. When it is grey and cold here, the blue will be pretty. Wish I could purchase a coat of 100 per cent wool. Do not like wool blends, but have not found alternatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzie66 Great Color, nice weight
I bought this coat to prepare for Thanksgiving in Colorado. I am 5'7", 150+ lbs and the fit is perfect. It is not too baggy to wear with just a shirt underneath but is roomy enough for a thin sweater. I bought the blue and it is a lovely shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Veauxie Substantial, classic daytime coat
I've been tracking this in the catalog for about 3 years and finally leaped this summer. It's a beautiful coat at a very good sale price. It's well-tailored (the lining and seams are impeccably sewn), the wool fabric is soft but very substantial and the sleeves are roomy enough to accommodate layers withough making one look like a snowman. I'll be wearing this puppy for a long time. The vibrant red color will brighten up the Denver winter and the thigh length and slight A-line is flattering to a fuller figure and makes it a flexible garment from fall-through-spring. Patience pays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zobe66 Beautiful Coat but not for Me
This is a beautiful coat. The red is perfect and the fabric soft and lovely.
It unfortunately did not suit my body type and I had to return it.
