A fine long, perfectly thin leather coat with buttons. I am 5'4," around 112 pounds, and I got a MEDIUM because of other reviews of this brand always saying to order a size or two up. As far as sleekness, I'm sure the designer would want me to wear a small to show it off, but honestly, even as an A-cup, a small would've been too tight for movement around the shoulders and ribcage. As I mentioned in the other section, the color of the leather looked like it had very subtle and unintentional vertical, straight black streaks - maybe this was a part of the processing, and will go away in time. The jacket, size MEDIUM, for someone of my small size, fits fine, but does not look well-fitted and formed at this size. The look reminds me a little of a long rain coat instead of leather, but it is great light leather, smells and feels like leather, and I look forward to rocking it in formal wear or casual wear. It is a decent coat, O has such a great price on it, and I needed a replacement for my previous wool formal black coat, as it has gone missing.. I'm almost considering getting this jacket in a small as well, for when I don't have a sweater underneath, to just wear it in a more fitted form. The medium has plenty of waist room. The lining is dark purple, which is great. Oh, and this one, like so many these days, was MADE IN CHINA, but with Italian leather (I guess). FYI, retail on the tag is 599.00, so, again, a good deal here, and a useful Fall/early Winter cover-up.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same, but streaky - straight, vertical, very subtle streaks of color variation on the color (black)
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. nothing too beautiful, nothing horrible - looks kind-of like a rain coat, but it's leather - could be used for more formal situations in the cold too, if not for the very subtle streaky color
- How accurate was the sizing? runs half-size small.. so if you want it well fitted, and aren't planning on wearing more than a spring top underneath.. and you don't want to be able to move your arms forward and back - order in your size. Otherwise ORDER A SIZE UP for normal comfort
