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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanFavs Beautiful, classic coat
This coat is lovely! It is true to size, has classic lines and good quality that I expect from LL Bean. It looks great with jeans as well as dress pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnieNYC2014 Chic, Soft and STUNNING!!!!
I LOVE this coat! I live in NYC where I am picky about both warmth and style, and this coat fits the bill! It is VERY slimming and chic, and I happen to adore the large pockets (they are SO "Audrey Hepburn"). The coat is super soft, not like those cheap coats you find at discount stores. I'd say that you should order your regular size and not size down....it is fitted (but that is what makes it so stunning). I am wild about the charcoal color...it is such a nice change from black and gray seems to be all the rage this year. I will be wearing this coat all winter...I have another more formal coat in case I get invited to the theater, but this coat will be my go-to coat all winter. Buy it, ladies...you won't be sorry!!! (PS.....I tried on about four thousand coats before I found this one.....went to every upscale store in Manhattan....this was the definite winner AND a great price!)

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter Stunning!!
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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northeast48 Beautiful Coat
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 : (
