I had reviews on other Larry Levine down jackets and they said to go up a size but that was not the case here. I had ordered an XL in another design but it was way too big. I reordered a large and it was perfect. I love the longer length, sleeves are perfect! I am 5'6" and around 150 lbs. so I would not recommend up sizing. I think I may even get another color :).
Loved this very stylish coat but had to return it as it was too small. Definitely order one size larger or. two sizes if you prefer your coat to fit loose. The mid calf length is good. The zipper is a bit difficult to get started so I am not sure if there is a defect or just from the angle from the length.
Just returned from Europe. Kept me perfectly warm in really cold Munich, and while in mountains of snowy Bavaria. Love having a hood to throw up as needed, though it did come forward over forehead and eyes unless I wore a hat underneath to hold it up. Slate color really nice, goes well with blonde hair and fair skin tone. Size medium just right with nothing else bulky underneath, a small would be tight in shoulders and bust, wt. 130 and 5'7". Do wish there was an interior cuff on sleeves, the lining at wrist seam with outer fabric tends to slide outside a bit. Many women in Europe with this style down anorak fur trimmed hooded coat. The snap tabs on waist make for a slimming profile. For the $$ I would buy again. Ordered one for my daughter in college in DC. Hers is a small in black, fits her and she is 5'8, slim. Fashion fussy 19 yr old, and likes it alot, especially for windy days on the hilltop at GU.
Loovvvee this jacket but....wore it for the first time for about 40mins. Got to work and took it off and the back stitching is ripped open!! Its NOT too small has enough room because I went up a size. I'm soo disappointed. Its very neat fitting and warm and also true to size, if it wasn't for the tearing it would be perfect.
While warm, this coat constantly leaves feathers all over my clothes which is very frustrating and embarrassing since I work in a very professional environment. Also irritating is that the hood is too big and falls over my eyes when up. Most coats have a hood adjuster where you can control how low the hood dips but not this one. Overall, it's just an okay coat. I'd rather spend an extra $50 and get something of better quality.
Very nice coat, lovely colour (charcoal), it does leave feathers on anything you wear underneath though as others have reported, don't wear black! the coat does fit on the small size I am usually a size 12 and the coat is snug with a sweater underneath, would recommend ordering a size bigger although it is warm and a thick sweater underneath might not be needed. Overall not bad, relatively happy. The hood is huge and does cover the face although when the snow is blowing it is very welcome. Very stylish.
My daughter wears an XS, so most down "puffer" coats overwhelm her size. This one is pretty, warm, and has a flattering shape. It got her very comfortably through a harsh NYC winter, and she loves it. She tried on dozens of others before trying this one from Overstock, so we were very happy to find it. Highly recommended.
The coat is stylish and I am keeping it, but there are issues with it. The hood is large and has no way to be tightened, so it either blows off or falls down over your eyes. Also, the zipper is tricky to maneuver as it has to be lined up in exactly the right way or it is not going to zip up.
I am very disappointed with the quality of this coat- i wore it 3 times before the zipper completely broke. It kept jamming up before it finally broke completely leaving me with an un-zippable coat. Other than that it was very warm, a little oversized but overall a good looking coat
When I read all the negative reviews for this coat, I was hesitant to order it but decided to try it anyway. I'm a student at Indiana University and needed a warm coat for walking across campus in the cold, and I'm glad I chose this coat. It's the warmest, nicest coat I've ever had. and it's a great price! The zipper works perfectly, and it fits true to size- I'm 5'2 and 100 lbs, and I ordered the small. The length hits right at my knee, sleeves are the perfect length, and it fits comfortably with enough room for me to layer a sweatshirt underneath- without looking too bulky. Some feathers do come out of the coat and stick to your clothes, which is annoying, but I think that's normal with any down coat. The hood is large, but it fits fine if I wear a hat underneath. I love this coat and would highly recommend it.
