Rated 5 out of 5 by SisterPrayalot I can't wait to be able to wear it!
Reading previous reviews, I ordered the coat one size LARGER than what I normally wear; it fits perfectly! Other reviews mention that the armholes are too high. I did not notice this with my purchase. Perhaps these "buyers" didn't order one size larger!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongTimeLLBean It's Beautiful
I'm in FL, so it might seem strange to buy a winter coat, but it's for a vacation trip later in the year outside of the tropics! :) I would not purchase winter gear from any place other than LL Bean!
This is a beautiful coat, the lambswool is as soft as a kitten! The pockets are cozy and very deep and will make great handwarmers.
The fit is true to the size chart.
I'm a bit sad that I'm not able to wear it now. Spring in FL is already 80 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongIslandViolet Soooo Soft
I usually order a size 14 in outwear to have enough room. Last year I ordered this jacket in a size 12 because that's all there was left and the reviews said it was oversized. Well, the size 12 was too tight and I had to return it even though I did love it. This year the only size left on sale was the stone at size 16. Well, I decided to give it a try and it is perfect. So you need to order a size up. It is so soft and the quality is unbelievable. I love this jacket and I would never have ordered the stone color but I love it. I am so glad I took a chance on the size and the color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tiredofmallshopping So disappointed......
After reading the reviews I decided to order a size up (due to comments about small armholes) - the jacket arrived today, the (blue) color is beautiful, the jacket appears to be well made but the sleeves are too short! I do not have long arms! I can't understand why it would be such an odd fit - it will definitely be going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Motochica Love this coat!
I have been looking for a peacoat all winter & finally found the perfect one! I love the soft fabric, Thinsulate lining and comfortable fit. I bought the Crisp Lapis & have received many compliments. Great pop of color for winter instead of black, navy, or gray. Looks great with jeans or dress slacks. I am soooo happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Modelmom14 Looks nice. Arm holes small.
The overall look of this jacket is classy. However, the armholes are either small or cut too high. The bottom of the arm hole digs into my armpits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JerseyGal A good all-purpose coat
I enjoy this coat for its versatility whether dressing up or just doing errands. I agree with other reviewers that the armhole openings are a bit too high; lowering them would give a better fit, but I can live with it. Not bad enough to return it. It is warm, the lining is so smooth, the details are impressive (love the nautical buttons), and I am pleased with my royal plum color choice. If the cut could be improved I could give it 5 stars.

I challenge LLBean to have this coat next year is light pink or light mauve for those of us who are cancer survivors. I think you will be surprised how many you sell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeBe2 Love This!
I love this coat! It is classic and warm. The thinsulate lining makes it my go to coat this winter. The sizing is great. I ordered the 10 (I tend to be 8-10 on top, 10-12 bottom) and it fits great with a bit of room. I ordered the navy because it reminded me of the coat my brother had in the 70's. Only con is mind your pets around the dark colors. It can pick up their hair really quick :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Memerex3 Pea Coat
I was disappointed to have to return this pea coat due to the armholes being so high resulting in a poor fit. I had read the reviews before ordering it and had read that was a problem other buyers had found as well but other reviewers were happy with their purchase so I gave it a try. It is a beautiful coat but it just did not work for me.
