Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Second review for this item-updated
About four months ago, I gave this jacket a 4 star rating-I have changed my mind! After wearing it fairly regularly I have to say I love it! Yes, it runs large, so order down, yes, it's a bit boxy from frontal chest view, but it is comfortable and is a beautiful classic style. I have a lot of llbean products and I must admit, this is one of my favorite purchases from them-EVER! It's great with a scarf too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Desa Great Looking Jacket but More Sizes Needed
I bought this jacket in Russett which I absolutly loved. It was just the right weight for those spring and fall days; I love courduroy and the color was perfect. I love the mandarin collar and the princess seeming which gives the coat a great shape. Sadly, I am returning it. Although it fit perfectly through the chest, the jacket and sleeves were a little too short and the shoulders felt tight. I would buy this jacket in multiples if it came in Womens Plus size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Californiababyboomer Not my style
This jacket is slim fitting and very fine wale corduroy. I was looking for a dark blue wool sweater but this is the closest I could find. It has a slightly military style, almost reminds me of clothing from the China of Mao Tse Tung's day. It seems well made and has lots of pockets, but it is just not me. I am returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DanPayneMountain Great color, stylishly informal, a bit stiff
The indigo is a lovely color, and the fabric has a nice hand, and though it seems bulky where several seams come together I am hopeful this will improve with time and wear. The shoulders are a bit constricting for me (I am skinny but broad-shouldered, and a Large is usually over-generous) and the pockets are over-constructed--with the openings of the upper ones almost too high to be functional--but it has flair and is fun to wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RankinRean Bulky jacket & Nehru collar doesn't really work
I love the russet colour, but am not too happy with the jacket overall: (1) The pockets are excessively tailored, with too many layers of fabric, making this a bulky jacket. Plus: The two breast pockets are totally unnecessary and add to the bulk. Perhaps I should have bought a size smaller (I'm 5'8" and bought misses small), but the bulk would, I think, still be there. (2) The Nehru collar is flimsy -- why not have the extra fabric layers there, where they are really needed? This collar looks good only under a turtleneck, not a tee because the collar just doesn't sit up nicely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by prairiechik ALMOST...
I am 5'2" and 115 lbs. I ordered this jacket in the Russet, size petite small, and the Bay Leaf, size petite XS. The fabric is beautiful. The weight and drape are very nice, perfect for fall. The small was simple too big in general. The XS was perfect through the shoulders and in arm length. Would of liked a little more length but could of lived with it. Alas, the style is just to boxy. Like a square.:( If you like that look, you might like this jacket. I would prefer a more fitted waist. So...sending them back. My search for the perfect jacket continues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mcgyver Nice weight
I liked the style, length and weight of this jacket. I bought it for traveling this fall. The blue color is nice too . The only thing I'd change is remove the upper pocket bulk, I cut them out leaving only the slots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCMN New and improved!
Last year I ordered a similar jacket and returned it because it was "trimmed" with a twill tape that cheapened the look and made me concerned that it would shrink/fade differently than the corduroy fabric. I provided feedback re: my concerns and this year LLBean did a remake. Now it is all corduroy and it looks so much more classy and I expect it to last forever...important for one who does not love shopping! The construction is QUALITY, the color is perfect, the fit is awesome. I just love it when one of my favorite clothing sources listens to customer feedback and acts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PHS7 Great Jacket
This jacket is perfect for everyday as it is easy to wear and nice design. For size it might run a little large. It is fun as a grab'n go jacket and looks good on.
