I had been looking for a London Fog long raincoat with hood for a long time (to replace one I had years ago.) I was thrilled when I found this on overstock for a great price. In stores this would cost $240+, perhaps more. I was surprised that the material was like microfiber and much lighter weight than expected--however this does not make the coat less warm (somehow.) Also it comes with a faux-wool (polyester) lining that makes it suitable for colder fall weather. The hood has drawstrings which is helpful in keeping the hood on in wind. I would say if you are wondering what size to get- go with one size larger if you plan to wear with the inner lining as it can be a bit snug. Though I would have preferred a twill or wool material and I would still purchase an additional hooded dressy raincoat should I find one that is made of natural materials as used to be the norm for London Fog, these natural fiber coats are difficult to find (and expensive). That said I am happy with this purchase and the coat serves well as a dress rain coat (the black makes it formal looking I think=though the accents are silver and causal style, the buttons are large flat black buttons) -very water resistant and warm.
I was very excited to receive this coat. I've been hunting for a nice rain coat; this one fits the bill. It also allowes me to wear it on those earily spring and late fall days, as it has a light flannel lining (that that may be removed or zipped in) :-). The quality of the coat is exceptonal and I can honestly say it's perfect in it's construction and workmanship.
I love this trench coat! I wanted a single-breatsed style and princess-style seams. It's definitely more slimming. I like the toffee color. The hood can be unbuttoned off. (I would usually leave it off unless I was going to be out in a steady rain.) There is a light-weight lining that can be zipped in or out. The coat is long enough for all but ankle-length dresses and skirts. London Fog quality and Overstock prices -can't beat it!
I looked all over locally and on the web trying to find a coat of this quality and price. Only Overstock.com had it. Shipping was prompt as promised, accept the belt was missing, which they sent promptly as well. My only complaint is that it has threaded belt loops instead of fabric. Other than that, it's a great purchase. It keeps me warm and dry, and I've gotten many compliments on it. Thanks Overstock.com! I give it 5 stars!
