by bellabelou Color not as expected
The fit is nice (Misses Regular, 18, Royal Plum). However, the Royal Plum was not as dark or purple as it looked online. It is more of a pinkish-purple.
I attached 2 photos one of the Royal Plum coat and another one with the Royal Plum with a purple Anne Klein coat I bought a few years ago, just as a comparison in the colors.
Unfortunately, I am looking for a dark purple coat similar to my Anne Klein coat. So, the Royal Plum coat will be returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BoulderJoan Nice fabric but too boxy
The 100% wool outer on this coat is really nice. But the fit isn't made for someone with a slender build. I'm 5'6", 130 lb, needed a size 10 for the shoulders. The body of the coat was not at all fitted, way too boxy for me. I'm returning the coat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shieldmaiden Not what I was hoping for
Had high hopes especially since this coat is lined with thinsulate. Seems,extremely warm but the style,doesn't do,kit for me, The proportions are off to me. I think it could use some nicer details like princess seaming to give it more style. I'll be returning this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimhanoi2000 Well made and excellent LLBean coat
My coat just comes today and try on, it looks great, fit size, true color and good packaging everything is perfect. It is my first coat with LLBean and feel worthwhile to spend. I got some from others but now LLBean coat is my favorite to wear. I may order another color :).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boromom Love This Great Buy!
Bought this coat in camel and will probably order it in black also.
I went by someone else's recommendation that you order one size up if you want to wear heavy sweaters or a light weight jacket under it. Fabric is really nice and it's made well. This coat is classic in design and will never go out of style. Also purchased the plaid Irish scarf that matches perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Treeline nice fit, color not as expected
I purchased the Raspberry color because it looked more red than pink on the computer screen. It is not red; it is very much pink. The coat fit well but the color is not appropriate for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheRealJodi I. Love. This. Coat.
I've wanted a new wool coat for years, but since I live in a climate where waterproof is more important than warmth, I put it off. Finally decided the time was upon me.
I looked at a lot of coats, but I kept coming back to this one. So I bought it. When it arrived I held my breath. I'm tall and have long arms, so buying anything with long sleeves is a crapshoot. Especially online. I needn't have worried.
The coat fits like a dream. I usually take about an 18 or 20 shirt, and ordered the coat in size 20. Just the right amount of room to wear a shirt and light sweater underneath, and sleeves that cover my wrists. If I lived somewhere that required a coat like this more often, I'd probably order another one in a different color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeeAndDrew LOVE THIS COAT!!
I love this coat! It is beautiful and soft. And most important it keeps out the cold, damp, rainy, and snowy days we get here in NC. Yes, we do get some winter down here too!
It was a cold rainy winter day here in NC and I wondered why my hands were cold. I was perplexed because this coat cut the cold, and I forgot how cold it really was. It looks great and fits great. If you are debating size, I would go up to a larger size. It is nice to be able to put layers on underneath. I got the Royal Plum. I think it is a great choice. It is conservative and subdued, if you want that for your job, but feminine and different than all the black and tan ones.
This coat is so good, I can't wait till they offer it for men! My husband loves this coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by saksajm Worth the money
This coat is something I have been looking at for two years. It is a lot of money and I wanted to make sure it was exactly what I was looking for. This coat is extremely warm and feels very soft to the touch.I love the 3/4 length. I purchased the camel which is a prefect match to all other colors. Can't wait for more chances to wear it out!
