Rated 4 out of 5 by NomDePixels Don't size up!
...unless, maybe, you customarily wear very heavy sweaters. The fit is generous, and the Thinsulate adds visual bulk. I sized up because I don't like snug-fitting clothing generally, but the coat is kinda huge looking.
The loden color is more a medium olive than the deeper, earthier Army green I was hoping for. Still, the fabric is lovely---soft and rich looking---and the overall design is good---lapels are a good width, pockets are in exactly the right spot, and the seaming adds a bit of shape to the back. From the front, when buttoned, the coat is blocky and rather shapeless. It reminds me of my mother's 1970s car coats---if that's what you're looking for, you're golden, and if you like ironic or nostalgic clothing, you're in luck, too!
It sounds like a negative review, but it's not! This a beautiful, cozy coat that likely will last for years. Just buy your usual size....

Rated 3 out of 5 by fiverc Sleeves too long
I am 5'5" and 125 lbs, and I ordered a size 6 Regular of the Bright Purple color. The coat is well made and seems like it would fit over a light sweater. However, the sleeves are at least 2" too long! I sometimes wear Petite sizes in sleeveless or short-sleeved items in order to get the overall length I want, but I have never worn a Petite size for sleeve length. That is to say, my arms are pretty standard length, so I was surprised to find that this coat had sleeves that are much too long. I'll be returning the coat for that reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PersonalStyle Quality shows, but the fun is in the tall boots
Ok so it's the boring background, but perfect for occasions where other coats are too casual. It does show off anything worn with it.
It feels very substantial and well lined to someone who lives in boiled wool and wool cardigans. I feel ready for any occasion with it in my closet and I am glad I own it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AddictedtoQuality Fantastic!
I was not sure how the Bright Purple would work, but it is charming and whimsical..... and why not ? The coat is very light and warm and appropriate for any situation that requires an element of elegance.
I am 5 feet, five and a half inches tall, 145 lbs, ordered a 14 , perfect fit, needs something thinner underneath, not a sweater or a blazer--not a problem.
Very happy with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopWay2Much Nice looking, but cannot wear a blazer under
I cannot believe this item was sized properly. Normally I'm swimming in a size 16, hoping I could use this coat for business meetings in winter and wear a blazer or nice sweater underneath. But with only a T-shirt on to try it out, the arm holes and upper arms were okay but would never allow another layer. So, sending it back. If you have skinny upper arms and barely a bust line, then this style might work. Tailored too tight. Fabric is nice and the tag indicates it was made in Italy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by student2010 Very warm and beautiful coat
It was a perfect coat but my it was not the one my daughter wanted. If it was my size I would have kept it for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Estancia great coat
Loved this coat; quality, style. However I returned it for a smaller size. Received it yesterday and am very happy. It is nice to have quality clothing in the larger sizes. Tho' we may be larger, we do appreciate quality in style, fabrics, workmanship

Rated 5 out of 5 by LynneTS Best wool coat I've ever had!
I bought this coat more or less out of desparation -- I wanted a long jacket, reasonably attractive, and warm. This one is perfect. With the thinsulate, it's the warmest wool coat I've ever had, good even in bitter cold, near-zero temperatures. I get a lot of compliments on it, too. This is my second season with wearing it almost every day and it still looks new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NanaC Clasic Lambswool Polo Coat, 3/4 length
The coat is excellent for my purpose. I tried the longer version -- but it was too long for me. I am 5"1"" and the quarter length is just right. Fabric and color is lovely.
