So Overstock actually shipped me the wrong coat but I contacted customer service and that fixed that problem immediately... they shipped a replacement before I even got the return in the mail. Also they e-mailed me a pre-paid label so that was nice too. On to the heart of the matter. Its a very nice looking coat (very very refined and elegant). Nice hand and drape as well as a nice heft to the fabric yet the coat overall feels lightweight. Haven't worn it in cold weather yet (darn Colorado winters... its been 60-65 degree days since I received it!!!) but I suspect warmth won't be a problem. Its a wool blend so it isn't super itchy but I wish it was just a bit softer. The sizing was an interesting surprise. I ordered a 44 (I am normally a 42) in order to have room to go over bulky sweaters and suit coats... the coat was pretty large and I ended up having to have it altered even for that purpose. Oh well. I suspect if I ordered the correct size it would have been spot on for wearing over sweaters and suit coats... Order a size DOWN if you are going to wear it with light sweaters and shirts or else you could be swimming in it. If it is too small, Overstock seems perfectly happy to do an exchange for you. Overall I am very happy. For the price it is an outstanding coat.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice... a tiny bit itchy but not too bad
- How accurate was the sizing? Good... runs a tad large but that's what you'd expect with an overcoat (order your actual size)
The coat is very nice, but it is too bulky and thick for me to wear except for on very cold days. I was hoping for it to be a little lighter in terms of fabric and liner, but it is much like an overcoat in weight. It still is very nice and fits well when I wear it. The only other minor complaint is that the bottom button appears to be "loose" already after only 6 or 7 wearings. So I may need to sew it back on.
overall a wonderful buy: perfect fit (we ordered 44L, which fit my husband perfectly, he is 6.3, medium slim), great length (most coats are mid thigh or lower, this one covers the butt), not too thin and not too thick. as always, overstock provided excellent customer service since this was our second try.
