Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsteach Beautiful color, is slightly fitted?.
This is a beautiful walking coat, just the right length and I think it will be quite warm. I did at first order a size 12, but felt it would not allow for a sweater under it. So I purchased the 14 and it is perfect. I would highly recommend this coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mainetomidcoast Wonderful coat
Beautiful wool, nice weight, warm, arms are nice and long, and I love the large collar. I like the look of the pockets but would have found slanted pockets more useful and comfortable - but I love the coat nonetheless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hampsterpants Love the coat.
I was initially hesitant about the coat. I wasn't sure it would be warm enough, and had hesitations since it was unlined. The other reviewer from Pittsburgh convinced me it was worth the chance. I can tell you it's soft, warm, and very flattering. I ordered a 4, and it fits like a glove.

I am so glad I took the chance and ordered this coat. It is so beautiful in person. It's softer to touch than you might expect. I find it true to size (not big like a lot of other Bean coats). Highly recommend!!

This is a great coat and you can dress it up or down. I disagree with others on pockets, I think it makes it different and adds interest. Runs just a tad smaller than other Bean coats, I usually wear a 4 or XS or S and the size 6 fits perfectly. It's pricey but very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CalifGirlinNC soft, beautiful wool fabric
I called to get the garment measurements for this coat & ended up ordering my regular size 8. There was room to layer a heavier sweater, but it was still nicely fitted in the body & arms. I love the large collar, the color of the fabric, and the softness of the wool. However, the front pockets would be better as slash pockets, which would be more functional (and would look nicer). I decided to return it : (

Rated 4 out of 5 by TrixieR Beautiful and great LL Bean quality...but
This is a lovely coat but the pockets are placed so that it makes me look oddly shaped.
I bought the size 6 and it fit. The pockets were it's downfall.
I have to spend it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYCSuzie Perfect Coat- warm and stylish
I rarely write reviews, but I wore this coat for the first time last night and loved it. The substantial material feels like cashmere, the cut is sophisticated and the collar adds some style. I sized up and it was comfortable with a heavy sweater under it. I am so pleased-- an excellent value.

I wore this coat on a cold windy day in NYC and it was so comfortable and warm. The button up collar worked great with a scarf. Highly recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basscatcher Initally, I put in the box for return...
...because the pockets are very boxey, coat cut very square throughout the hips, not very flattering. In fact, I felt that it made me look bottom heavy, and heavy throughout my body. But then I wore it to work, and fell in love with material, color and the cut around the shoulders, as well as the huge, dramatic collar. Its very dressy and classy, not be worn with tennis shoes! (With the collar up I was told I look like dracula, but I thought I looked pretty cool and elusive.)
