I am 5ft 11/2 inchdes so short. I ordered the size relative to mine and the coat is big on me. The down keeps coming out of the many stitches that give the coat its design. Many people say they like the coat but the black one I bought shows up all the down and I feel like my coat has dandruff. I've washed it but it still comes out. Nice and warm though.
I purchased this jacket and thought that I was getting a good deal until the feathers started poking through; there are just too many of them poking through and I cannot pull them out fast enough. Just imagine wearing a black jacket covered in feathers. Save your money and don't purchase this jacket...you will definitely be disappointed.
Sounds too good to be true and it is. Water resistant--yes. Warm--OK. Down--OH YEAH! And the down bleeds from every seam. Have had it a year now and still shedding. Warmth factor decreases accordingly. People are always picking feathers off of me. Can't wear it for anything other than extremely casual outings b/c the feathers make it look bad. (Daughter continues to wear it and doesn't care as much as I do.)
