Returned. I loved the look of this coat so much I tried ordering it twice, first in a small and then in an extra small (my regular size), but they were far too big for a flattering fit. Otherwise, the coat seemed very well-made and in nice classic colors. I usually wear XS at L.L. Bean -- definitely order a size down if you purchase this. (I'm a 5'4'', 115 lb, B-cup; purchased size Misses Petite XS and S.)

I read the reviews carefully. This does fit large, I ordered one size smaller than normal and it's a perfect fit around shoulder and chest.
Great length on this coat, I'm 5'6" and it hits just above the knees. Good for spring weather coverage.
The belt loops will need to be altered for me. They are high. This was mentioned in another post so I knew this going in. Very minor alteration required for this coat to be perfect.
I ordered the green and it's incredible.

The trench coat is exactly what I was looking for. The jacket was exactly as advertised a cross the board. The fit, length, and weight were on the money. This was a great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skeptic63 Practical and stylish coat
This is perfect for chilly fall or spring days. Looks professional for work, and is attractive as well.

I only wish that the belt was a bit longer, so that I could look a even more trendy in the rose coral!

I really like this trench coat. I knew from previous reviews that it was sized quite large, so I got a medium knowing it would be a little loose on me - exactly what I wanted in case I feel like layering. Looks good open as well as with the belt tied in a knot. I'm 5'4" and don't have the typical petite proportions (normal torso, don't have short legs), and the regular misses fits fine.. I did not order a petite despite the fact that some people my height would. The one thing that bugs me a little about this coat is that fluff seems to stick to it a bit. I'm glad I didn't buy the black one or else it would look awful by now since I have a cat with light fur!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PWCLover Had high hopes but was disappointed
I had planned to purchase this coat last year and am sorry I didn't because you no longer offer the version with the zip out wool liner. I think this is a poor move on your part because a coat like this cannot be worn in the colder months with the thin nylon liner this style has. Yes, you have other coats with the zip out liner but none in this classic style.
I decided to order it anyway. The coat fit me fine. I am 5'3", weigh 105 lbs, and was happy with the XS petite. I had a concern it would be short-waisted on me but it was not. However, I ended up returning it for 2 reasons. First of all, I did not like the bar throat latch. It really stood out against the black fabric. Honestly, I think it should be removed. I have to wonder how often anyone would use it. It just cheapens the look of the coat. The second issue I had was with the way the overhang fabric on the upper back stuck out. The fabric is stiff and when I tied the belt, this fabric didn't hang properly. It's almost like too much fabric was provided for this piece. I like the styling concept but it doesn't fall properly.
So, I am going to have to go elsewhere for a trench coat.

Love, love love this red trench coat. I know that it would rate five stars, as all of my other purchases over the years.
Only problem is that " it is sold out!"
Any chance there will be another shipment?

Rated 2 out of 5 by jenn778 nice quality but HUGE
I was really excited about this coat- I got the dill size medium in misses (I wear a medium in every top I own: 5'5", 120lbs, 34dd# and although the color was beautiful, the coat was absolutely huge on me. It wasn't even close to fitting #and I don't like anything really tight-fitting#. It went well past my knees when I was expecting mid-thigh and my fingers couldn't even protrude through the sleeves. Every aspect of the coat was huge which was very disappointing because of the great price.
