Rated 3 out of 5 by qwas123 Not flattering but warm
I would love this jacket if I had not looked in the mirror. The back has a flattering cut, but why not the front? So much extra fabric on the front, but well fitted across shoulders and in length of sleeves. I look like I am quite far along in pregnancy from the side view when it's not buttoned..maybe it is just how it falls from my chest? Russet is a great fall color, Fabric is soft, and the construction is high, LL Bean quality. I wish there were a happy medium between, "so fitted it looks painted on" and "I could be ready to birth triplets."
The slender blond model looks cute in the russet jacket, but she is sitting bent over, not standing. Looking back, that would have been a clue to its boxiness.

Please continue making these jackets! They are so easy and fun to throw on and dress up your slacks or jeans. In fact, I wore my jacket like this one and another you make in a different material similar styling, many days to work until the extreme cold weather snap. I am a high school TECH ED teacher and these are wonderful jackets for my clothing line-up. Thank you LLBEAN for these jackets and please continue with fun, a little fitted, yet just slightly loose jackets that are nice and long enough for our routine movement. There are times when I have to remove my jacket to quickly put on my lab coat. I love the ease.

This does not have a nice feminine shape. Kind of boxy without style. I'll keep mine rather than waste the postage to send back but not really happy with it. It was a good price on clearance. I'll wear it when I'm raking leaves or working in yard but not cute enough to wear when going out to eat unless it's McDonald's.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sparrow2 boxy jacket
This jacket was marked down from $79.00 dollar's to $29.99
(That in itself gave me pause for thought) But I could not resist and ordered the sage color in my usual size petite large. The jacket was boxy and unflattering on. Also the style of the jacket reminded me of the soldiers uniform in the Vietnam war. The sage color was dull and flat. I am giving two stars for the nice quality of the corduroy. Sent jacket back immediately. Now I know why this jacket has such a large price reduction. Very disappointed:(

Ordered in the sage green, just love it. The corduroy is soft, allows you to bend without bunching up. Good weight, but not too warm. I wear it as a jacket or sometimes as a blazer over a button down shirt. Cut is flattering, very pleased with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by midwestgram Very Good buy
Happy with my jacket because: it's a nice heavy corduroy; rust color is rich & attractive; top pockets are flat, bottom ones have flaps & can be used for keys, gloves, etc; fits me very well & looks good - not real form-fitting but a comfortable look & wear. I like the stand up collar. Went down a size to Large, even though my size measurements said XL - so reviews are correct! Runs big in chest, shoulders & arms, so size down1). Arms still run long, but I just turned them up, no problem & looks cute. I'm thinking of getting another color now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GauchoheartBearblood Great quality cord coat
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket. I originally ordered the sage and then got the russet color on the 2 a day mark down (bargain!). The coats are quality material, great color, and not too thick. Looks great with a scarf. Can dress this jacket up or down depending on what you have on the bottom. I just wish I found this coat before it sold out in the blue. Next year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by coldincalif Sizing is way off
Bought two of these -- one in size XL petite and the other in size large. Neither one of them fit and they have been returned for a refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ilovebooks Huge fit
This jacket in russet is really beautiful but the fit for me was very large. I ordered the XS regular, which works for most Bean jackets. This one, while a beautiful color and very well made, was ultra wide. I'm usually fine with oversized jackets because they allow for layering. However, this one was large in the most unflattering way. I think another reviewer called it "top heavy" and I agree!. Even though it was a daily deal at a great price, I knew that it would just sit in my closet, so I sent it back. I'd recommend sizing down if considering this jacket. If you're already a size XS and slender, I wouldn't recommend it at all.

I ordered the Bay Leaf and it's a beautiful color. This jacket is so well made and it's perfect for our Gulf climate. It will look wonderful with jeans and scarf. I ordered petite because I'm 5'4" and ordered my regular size because I wanted a little room to layer a sweater underneath it. If you can get this on the 2 a day mark down like I did, you'll be thrilled. It's an expensive looking jacket.
