I actually bought this coat from a different retailer since overstock didn't have my size. When I first opened the box, I was a bit disappointed. The coat is much lighter than I thought it would be and the fabric is similar to a boucle, not a typical wool blend coat. But once I got past my initial disappointment and tried it on, I was very pleased with the look and fit. It's very feminine and unique with the oversized rouched collar and lovely beaded buttons. The color isn't an overly dark navy but is a very nice deep blue. And yes, I agree with the previous reviewer that it should come with extra buttons, as most coats do. Definitely reenforce the buttons. I'm 5' 6 1/2" and 133 lbs. and normally wear size 4 or small. Ordered a small and it fits beautifully but the sleeves are about 1 1/2" long which is unusual for me. Very slimming and falls to my knees so its a nice length. Overall it's a lovely coat, only wish the quality was a bit better.

I was really suprised when I received this coat. I am 6 feet tall, 157 pounds, wear a size medium but always order a size bigger in a coat. I must admit I was shocked at the sleeve length. It hit right at the wrist, perfect length for my long arms. Although the coat was a llittle big on me not so much that I could not get away with it. In addition, not thin at all but nice and warm. The ONLY complaint, the buttons on the coat are very distinctive yet there were no additional buttons included with the coat. Thus, if I lose one button, all must be replaced. That is the nly drawback with this coat. Include extra butotns!!!

I fell in love with this coat online and ordered it right away. It was beautiful coming out of the box and I was really pleasantly surprised at the quality and weight of it....it was beautiful! Then I put it on...OMG, there is no one on this earth that wheres a size small that would have been able to wear that coat! The sleeves were easily 6 inches too long (and I have long arms for a small woman), the length was probably another 6-8 inches too long, and the width was so wide I could have fit another person in there with me. I was devasted! I took it to a tailor to see if it would cost a fortune to alter, and not only would it cost a fortune, I was advised it would ruin the look of the coat. Ivanka, you need new and true fit models. So, I had to retrun it...and it was recieved by Overstock 10 days ago....I have gotten nothing but the run around regarding my refund...so all in all, poor fit, poor customer service...a total bust.
