beautiful coat and workmanship...one question pending with Aston as to whether the collar and cuffs are faux fur...I suspect they are and I wanted 100% through and through. If you don't mind any faux on your genuine coat, then it's still beautiful, but I didn't see that in the ad and for that I am disappointed.
I do like this coat a lot. I like the style and the warmth. The price is also very good. However, I returned what I ordered. I ordered three black coats all together. First one, small size: Beautiful and very supple fur. I returned because it fit a bit tight around the arms and the collar was frosty black not black. I almost kept this one thinking it might soften and fit might improve but the color of the collar bothered me. Second one: medium size: very soft and supple fur but fit a bit too loose for me and the color bleed and dirty my fingers, especially to finger nails tips. Third one, small size again: this one fit well and color was consistent over all. However, I also returned this one because 1. the color also bleed to fingers 2. the fur inside was very short and rough, much less quality than the other two. 3. the seams inside the coat showed white lines which showed bad quality workmanship. I am considering order it again to try my luck since the second small size seemed to fit but need to think about it a little more if I want to go through the trouble.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Some inconsistence. One of the coats I received had frost black collar vs. black
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was inconsistent. The first small size coat had supple fur but the color of the collar did not match the coat. The second small size coat had very short fur and felt rough when touched. Also the seams inside the coat showed whiite lines. Dye on the medium coat and one of the small coats bleed to fingers and dirty fingers and nails just when I tried them on and off.
- How accurate was the sizing? inconsistant again. One of the small coat fit well but the other one not.
I purchased the black Shearling Car Coat from Overstock because Overstock has the best price and quality available. I researched several websites / furriers who made the same claims, but the quality, pricing and, more importantly, availability did not compare. I ordered a Large (I normally wear a 10-12 coat), and the fit is perfect. The coat is warm and wonderful on a snowy, blustery day.
