Versatile with removable lining. Sizing is tricky inasmuch as with the liner in place, the coat is bulky, confining, and hard to wear over layers of clothing. With liner removed, coat is suitable over a sports coat for evening-out apparel. Not a fault of the coat, just generic to this type of lined trench coat. The three button closing may feel inadequate to those in extreme polar conditions, but has been more than appropriate for me. The construction and material seem very good and I anticipate a good bang for the buck on this purchase.
