Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoFitMom Unique fall jacket, warm and plush
I decided to buy this jacket despite a few negative reviews. I'm 5'3", 138#. After reading the reviews I called LLB and was advised based on my measurements to get Petite Medium. Based on that I ordered the chocolate brown. It arrived yesterday. What I loved was that it feels really heavy, plush and soft, an absolutely perfect fall jacket. Because it is soft, it can also be used perfectly well as a layer under a down jacket once it gets too cold to wear it outside just by itself. The brown is also the perfect color for fall. However, the size is way off because I was swimming in it even when I wore a full turtleneck sweater underneath. The pockets are great, sleeve length is perfect , nice tailored shape which will be even better once I get the coat in petite small. Length is on the short side, so if you are looking for more coverage this might be too short. I have now returned it and have ordered the petite small in deep red. Petite small because I want a better fit, and deep red because I want a color that will never be off-season across fall, winter and spring. I am very glad I ordered it. I don't wash my jackets regardless of hat the instructions say, just dry clean, so I cannot speak to whether it shrinks. Hope this helps. Great buy, very stylish and hard to find elsewhere!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SFCityWalker Disappointed
I received this jacket in January. After 6 months, some discoloration has appeared in a large swath on one of the arms, a patch on the front and another patch on the collar. (This is the dark brown jacket.) Appears to be a problem with the dye. It otherwise is an acceptable jacket. I'm disappointed because I like the original color and the style and fit of the jacket. I'm returning it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leighshops2much A little large
I normally wear a medium, 5'5", 135lb. I was swimming size medium. Sage color was pretty, but it's a bulky fit.

This lovely, soft, warm jacket was a Christmas present from my
dear Brother. Beyond comfortable! Adorable plaid lining, easy-to-zip front and perfect pockets. This jacket and I will be friends for a long time :-)

I bought the jacket in brown. I love the flannel lining. It is warm but lightweight enough to wear maybe 3 seasons. Excellent with pants and jeans. May buy in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fitmom150 Looking sharp! And feeling SO comfortable. :)
I was originally looking to buy the big shirt, but this caught my eye in the store. It is so soft, cozy, and fits just right. I like the comfort, especially when I have my hands in the pockets. I bought the brown which is quite lovely, but also have my eye on the red and blue. It is "more polished" than the big shirt and looks great with jeans or a skirt. I plan on dressing it up and down. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by HonestShopper The design was changed
I just found out that two years ago this jacket used have two pockets at the chest and the body length was much longer with the buttons instead of the zipper. The collar was also not stand-up like this one. They shouldn't have changed the design because the original one looks much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2casual4nyc Petite size too short
I am 5' tall, 114 lbs. and I found the petite small was too short for my taste and the fit boxy. I tried on the regular small in the store and I liked the length much more but the sleeves were too long. It is otherwise a good quality jacket and the blue color and lining are very pretty. This isn't the first time that I have found a petite jacket or sweater to be too short, even at my height. I hope LL Bean will redesign some of their petites to prevent this problem.
