I loved the coat and the color red was lovely. However, when I tried on the coat the sleeves were about 4 inches too long. I am 5' 5" and I would have had to have gorilla arms to be long enough to wear this coat. I was very disappointed as I really liked the coat.
If the sleeves were taken up it would have run into the fabric tab on the sleeve so that was impossible to work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Reece3 Soft and warm
This coat in red was a gift from my mother three years ago. She bought it for the timeless styling and high quality LL Bean is known for. I love it. The wool of the coat is very, very soft and wears incredibly well. I have even slept in it when experiencing winter power outings. I have lost and gained weight over several winters and the coat faithfully has worn beautifully throughout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LouiseinWisconsin WOW!
This coat in the crisp lapis color is stunning! I ordered a size larger as I normally do with outerwear and it fits perfectly. The sleeve length is great for me and I'm 5'9" so that is not always the case. The fabric is soft and with the thinsulate lining will be warm enough for our Wisconsin winters. The thing I like the most about the coat besides the color, style and fabric is the fact that it is very SLIMMING! I thought it looked great on and my husband is the one who mentioned it was slimming. I'm very happy and will wear it on Thanksgiving . I can't wait!

Rated 4 out of 5 by OhioBeanShopper Really wanted to like this coat.
I am 5'2", and I ordered the petite. The arms were so long they almost covered my fingertips. The upper shoulders were very large, which made my head look tiny. The worst thing was the pocket placement. The coat was roomy, but the pocket openings curved out and looked like parentheses accentuating my tummy. Not flattering. . . It really looked like a man's coat on me. The camel color was beautiful and a little darker in person than on the website, which I liked. It seemed like a well-made item, but just not for my body shape (somewhat apple).

This coat is beautifully constructed and warm. It arrived packaged incredibly well, with tissue covering every button and very few wrinkles. My only disappointment is that it is the color. The coat is not teal as described but more of an emerald green or turquoise. I was truly hoping for a teal. But I like the coat enough to keep it despite the off color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mirawood Love this coat
I especially love the plum color, the warmth, and the quality of tailoring. I found the "slightly fitted" description accurate; it is neither boxy nor fitted, but slightly shaped.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JethroTull Great coat, but wears terribly
Bought this coat for my wife. It fits perfect and looks great. But it piles (I believe that is the terminology) worse then a wolf in spring. I mean we spend far too much time making the coat look respectable before she can wear it. I think this winter it will end up in the donation box pretty quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jelliestar Beautiful, high-quality coat... that's going back
This coat is beautifully made, impeccably sewn, and I'm sure it's wonderfully warm. However, I ordered the Crisp Lapis thinking it would be a deep shade of twilight blue, and when I opened the box... I mean, this coat is electric blue. As in, bright, wild, electric blue. The color itself is quite nice, but it's a good bit brighter than I'd like to wear on a daily basis. I have nothing but positives to say about construction, and of course about LL Bean's legendary customer service, but this coat, unfortunately, is going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusannaD Outstanding Coat
This coat has to be one of the best values in America! The teal color is gorgeous, the fabric is lovely, and the fit (I'm a 4R) is perfect. I have way more expensive coats in my closet and now I am wondering why. My next coat will be the longer version in black.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GGDC Boxy fit, rough wool
The fit is boxy (size 10) - not fitted at the waist as suggested in the photo. The wool is rough. Also, the navy is indistinguishable from black (unless they sent me a black). I just received it today and plan to return it. Not as advertised.
