Got it today and it's beautiful but way too small. I ordered th XL, as I'm as US size 16. It fit like a medium, ie, not just snug but couldn't fasten it by 6 inches and the arms were too tight. So bottim line, beautful but order 2 sizes up. My cousin is going to get this as a Christmas gift - she's a medium.
I was excited when I received this coat so quickly. It was packaged securely and in a garment bag. Unfortunately when I tried on the coat, it was way too small, even though I ordered my usual size. It was very tight across the shoulders and arms. Too bad because it was really a very fine coat that I liked a lot.
I wear a size 8, ordered a medium. Too, too small, so took a chance and ordered large. It really wasn't much better. It went back as well. Too bad, because the material was beautiful. I think the large would fit someone who wears a size 6 - maybe!!
I have major department cashmere coats and must say the price is phenomenal for the quality on this one. It is a well made and nice quality cashmere. But, I am 5'1" and 128 pounds and could not wear the Large I ordered. I read the reviews on size and thought I was safe with a large as my other cashmere coats fit and are a size 4 and an 8 petite. This Large is much smaller than both of those. I also have a coat, purchased in Italy, that is a 38 and it fits and is much larger than the Large 42 of this one. PLEASE let people know the sizing issue before they buy.
The cut does not compare with the cut of a really good coat hence the fit around the sleeves and chest is not very good (I am size 2 or4), simple design, brown is not a chocolate color, more with mustard color mix, but with good scarf it will work.
I have been looking for a 100% Italian cashmere coat but they were all over $1000.00 I took a chance and was delighted by quality and workmanship. I bought the large size 42. I am 5ft. 7 and it covered my knees. I am a size 4 in pants but an 8-10 in jackets . It is not meant for fierce winters but for travel back East I plan to use a leather jacket. I don't like coats that are too heavy so this was perfect for me. It is a classic elegant timeless coat. I am wondering about the brown color which looks more like Rust and would love some reviews on that color. I may get another one.
The cashmere coat is beautiful but not for a cold winter. It's very light in material-like a fleece. It fit nicely on the top and a little snug on the bottom but that's due to my shape. The large fits an 8-10 in size. I'm looking for a thicker material and am returning it.
