Rated 5 out of 5áby AlaskaLover Very nice looking coat (I purchased the red)
Very nice short trench style coat. I will probably buy one more in a different color. The red is pretty without being too bold. It is true to size, but if you are planning on wearing heavy layers, you may want to go up a size. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MidwestDressed Size Down
I love this trench! I am not usually a red person but the red color of this jacket is gorgeous. After reading the reviews, I decided to order a petite because most people seemed to think that the sleeves were too long. I am fairly tall (5'9") and definitely shouldn't have ordered the petite. I found that it also ran a bit big in the chest/waist/hips/etc. I will be exchanging for a size down and not petite...but otherwise the coat is a flattering shape, great quality, and a beautiful color.

The old port trench coat is perfect for our Florida weather, not to heavy, very comfy.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BmoreSF Nice "casual Friday" coat
The navy blue is a beautiful rich color. The coat fits well, although slightly large in the 2X (vs. the stated measurements). The coat looks dressy yet could easily be worn at for casual needs as well.

Rated 4 out of 5áby HatesBugsInTheWoods Sharp coat, fit is fine
I wanted this coat because my tan trench made me feel like Inspector Closeau. I was nervous because of the reviews...many said that it was too tight in the arms and back, and too big everywhere else, while others said it was too big period. Some said order up, some said down. (Maybe there are QA/QC problems?) I loved the color so I ordered it, following the size chart. It's just fine. It could have a bit more room in the upper arms, but there is no problem with being able to move. I have fairly small shoulders, but I definitely have some arm muscles and while it would be tight over a heavy sweater, it will work nicely for me. Give it a try!

Rated 3 out of 5áby iluvgeddy Wish I liked it!
The look of this coat is beautiful and it looks like it's very well made, as LLBean products are. However, the fit wasn't great on me on the shoulder/chest area. Going up a size, I know it would have been too large in the waist/hip area. I'm athletic so my body neither stick straight or curvy.
Perhaps if the fabric had a touch of Lycra or stretch in it, it would have worked but it didn't not.
Though it did not fit me per se, I would recommend to a friend to try just because the look is sharp. Again, bummed it didn't work for me.

Rated 1 out of 5áby LLBDC Stiff Material - Runs Small
I ordered this jacket a size large to fit roomy for bulky underlayers. It just fit so there was no roomy effect and the material was very stiff so it did not fall well. I returned it to the store with absolutely no problem. I love LLB return policy and awesome customer service...just not that jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5áby FargoChill Good weight and length
Good tayloring. Fits well in the petite size. The length is good over the longer sweaters for fall. Nicely lined and finished and the red is fun.

Rated 3 out of 5áby PWCLover Trench didn't work out
I read the reviews and ordered the trench in the next size up with much trepidation. I normally wear an XS petite and was pleased to find the S petite was roomy enough in the chest and sleeves for me. However I am returning the coat for 2 reasons. I just don't like the color offerings. I really want black and cannot understand why LL Bean would not offer this classic coat in such a basic color. You used to offer the double breasted trench in black. The second issue is the sleeve length. I have long arms and the sleeves are still way too long. I do not want to spend any extra money having the sleeves altered when I'm not thrilled with the color of the coat. Finally, I wish this coat was offered with a zip out lining -- though I was willing to overlook that due to the nice styling.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Arizona28 Coat
The coat is a true red and the fit is true to size. It will be a perfect rain coat when needed and a great coat for all other times.
