Rated 3 out of 5 by Deb65 Runs True to Size
After reading all reviews, I ordered a size smaller than I normally would. I ordered a size 4. It was too small. I wasn't impressed with the quality or the fit, so I returned the coat and did not reorder. I cant imagine, a person who is a normal size 8 could wear this in a size 4. It sure didn't work for me.

Looks like a most..versatile, fashionable, yet warm and functional wool coat. More stock? Colors? Sizes? I'd buy one in each color. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kimhanoi2000 Nice coat
Just received coat today after long time to make search of size as I like this coat but not sure what's size should fit me (I am 5''4 W 106) normally size 0-2 with LLBean depending on style. Thanks for LLBean advisors they give me sufficient infos of garment measurement so I decided to go with size 0 ( vintage red) fit perfectly I am so happy with it as I am lazy person and don't like return/ exchange esp with LLBeab exchange process it took so long :). The material is nice and color as picture, try it on and look like in the pic also. This is my 2nd coats with LLBean and happy with my purchase, a bit expensive but hope worthwhile to spend with time goes as I like classic and formal style.

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.

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.
