Looks so great on the computer screen. In reality, not quite the "classic" it's advertised to be. Not enough buttons to effectively "close" the coat and have it remained closed in cold weather. Too fitted to allow room for suitcoat or blazer to fit comfortably even though the sizing is correct and the coat (sleeves, length) are otherwise fine. Had to send it back -- with regret. So the search continues for a classic, tailored, conservative black winter coat that works for office wear.

This is a great coat I have bought 2 one for me & a birthday present for my best friend. I like to wear it when I have a dress on it's long enough so my legs stay nice & warm. Gonna order another in a different color.

This coat is beautiful, with soft, quality wool. Very luxurious & timeless! It has a nice tailored fit. It's very slightly snug in the shoulders, but I have very big shoulders for a woman & I think it will still be fine with sweaters.

Beautiful fabric, well made. It fits perfectly. I love the length. Classic look that never goes out of style. Highly recommended for anyone who loves a classic timeless look. I'll have this coat for years. It is appropriate to wear anywhere at any time of day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GMEide Not what I expected from LLBean
The texture of the 'wool' was scratchy and not what 'it used to be' as I recall these wonderful winter coats.
Part of the 'wool' was missing on the lower front of the coat as if it was shaved off. I've wished for this coat since it first came out and what I received, was not what I expected from LLBean.
Regretfully, I am returning my coat this week.

I love this coat! It's long and soooooooo warm! It was on sale and on top of that even though I didn't get immediately approved for a card, the associate gave me 15% off anyway!!!! I just wish the coat had a hood but other than that I'm 100% satisfied

A rich and luxurious feel and look. Keeps you toasty in the chilliest and iciest of winters. A very professional look for work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Noloveforthiscoat Wanted to love it
I wanted to love this coat, but despite taking the smallest petite size (4P), it was way too big for my frame. I'm 5'2 and 120lbs, fit but by no means skinny, and this coat engulfed me. I am a big fan of the oversize style, but this just didn't work. The shoulders were massive, and the overall look was unflattering. This coat needed to be 2 to 3 sizes down. Bummer because it seemed very warm, and I really liked the color. LL bean, please make a true petite size of this coat?

This was exactly what I was looking for, for a trip from the west to Chicago. Warm and cozy without being heavy (gotta love that Thinsulate!!), and so easy to pack. Fits well - I usually wear a size 6, ordered a size 6, and it fits perfectly, even over several layers.
I echo others' reviews in that an extra button or two at the bottom would be nice and help when there's wind, but that is minor. Overall, it's a great coat, well made and soft, and fits exactly as it should.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hates2Shop As warm as was promised
This coat is very well made and I have received tons of compliments on it. The coat it replaced was very "boxy," so in comparison, this one feels very fitted. I usually take a size 14, and that's what I ordered, but I wish I had also ordered a 16 to compare sizes - the coat fits very well in the sleeves and on top, but as other reviewers have mentioned, for those of us who are a little curvier in the hips, the bottom of the coat gaps open more than I would have liked. Alas, by the time my coat arrived, it was no longer available in a 16 and was back-ordered until June. I also agree with the reviewer who wished that the pockets were lower, and I wish they were deeper. I'm not comfortable keeping my cell phone in there, although perhaps if the pockets were angled downward more than they are, I would. One thing that really impressed me is how warm the coat is without being bulky - in fact, even in the frigid temperatures we've been experiencing in the Northeast these past few weeks, I haven't even buttoned the coat up unless the wind was blowing. The downside is that it may be too warm for days when the temps reach high 30s or low 40s, but I guess that's a good excuse for buying another coat!
