Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanerinNH Runs Large But Very Nice Coat
I ordered this coat in a size 16 and had to return it as it was too large. I wear a size 16 in Bean shirts as my shoulders don't fit into size 14. I exchanged the coat for a size 14 and it fits well. A litle big in the body, but a little room for a sweater or fleece vest is a good thing. I am 5' 11' and weigh 148 pounds. I wish I had exchanged it earlier as I would preferred an Ebony coat instead of a Vintage Red one. The red is nice, but I prefer a darker color. I will buy one next year, if Bean still features this coat.

This coat is a great find. It can be worn for dressy occasions or for everyday wear. I wore it to a trip to New York recently and it was bitterly cold out. The coat kept me warm and toasty. I purchased a size 4. I am 120 lbs 5 ft 7 inches. It fit me perfectly. I can wear a sweater under it. I like the pockets because I like having a secure place to put things I need immediately like my car keys or gloves. I wear it to work and to the market. It is very versatile. I am glad I purchased it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by coggins A beautiful coat for a slim-waisted woman
Stylish, wonderful fabric, well-made. I am a 12, so to be safe I ordered a 14. I could not even button it. I sent it back and ordered a 16. It still felt snug through the waist and tight across the bust (and I am not buxom). Also the 16 was too long and looked bulky in the shoulders. I was so disappointed! This coat is cut for a very, very small waist. If you are straight up and down like I am, it is not for you.

So pleased with my Southport Wool Coat! Love the soft fabric, the coat is warm and stylish, and I have gotten many compliments on it. Fit is good....true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bklynslope Gorgeous coat
This coat is awesome on every level--quality, warmth, style. Bought it last season and have gotten plenty of use and it still looks beautiful--no pilling. I disagree with other comments about the pockets--they are part of what make this coat stylish and unique (along with the cool oversize collar), as opposed to all the other generic wool coats out there. Sure, if you need a coat to cram your hands in all day, select a different one. I've got gloves. This coat is super flattering, very warm, and feels very luxe. Highly recommend! I'm 5'4", 125 lbs and the size 6 is great over layers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBShpr classy coat
I saw this at the store and loved it. Great fit. Elegant look would look great with jeans too. I wish it came in a Petite, though, as I am 5 feet tall and had to return it because the sleeves were too long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Scoutie Stylish and warm
I looked hard for a new winter coat that was pretty and stylish. This one is very nice, looks great, fits well. I like the above-knee length. I would like slash pockets better, and the sleeves are rather tight, but it's very warm and otherwise comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoonSkier Lovely stylish coat
This coat is very nice! It feels soft and is substantial. I am 5'5", 122 lbs and the small fit nicely, with room for a sweater underneath. My husband thinks it's attractive on me, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jihye great coat, but a little big for me
I'm a petite person, about 5'3", a little over100lb. This coat unfortunately didn't have a petite size available so I went for the regular 0 in grey. Fits in the shoulders, but the arms are too long and the body isn't as fitted as in the pictures. I will be getting the coat altered since I like the coat otherwise.
79% wool isn't easy to come by, and the fabric is super soft and supple. The grey colour is very nice, just like the pictures! Wore it out today and it kept me warm despite the wind. Just wish there had been a petite range.
