I had gotten a LaCera nightgown with this fabric last year for Christmas & she had gotten me the same thing & it made for a wonderful gift exchange as we both love cats & comfy flannel nighties & pajamas. I saw that this same fabric was made into pajamas while looking for Christmas gifts for family & friends this year & got myself a pair as I absolutely LOVE my nightie. This is definitely the best flannel I've come across in decades as to quality, it's thick but not stiff & only gets better with time.. LaCera's flannel is thick & soft & it gets softer with every wash. I had taken delivery of these pajamas last week & they're already my favorite pair! I've learned that with all 100% cotton items that these are best washed in cold or warm water & dried on low heat or air dried to prevent shrinkage. However, as LaCera cuts their nighties & pajamas generously, it probably won't matter if you wash them in hot water & use the hot setting on your dryer. If you have someone in your life that loves flannel pajamas or nighties; I cannot express how wonderful LaCera's nighties & pajamas are & gladly recommend them to all. ***FYI; wash these alone or with other red/dark colored clothes the first time as the dye does tend to bleed a bit.
Extremely well made and longer than expected, over the knees (the model in the picture must be several inches taller than me), which was a nice surprise. The coat is fairly light weight (not bulky) because of the down insulation. No extra padding is needed (thermals or sweater); the coat does its job perfectly! As someone who is susceptible to sore throats in the winter, the high collar solidly shields me from the cold and wind, and the large, removable, hidden-zippered hood and rib-knit cuffs help insulate and protect from inclement weather. The coat is also water repellent, another bonus. The only downfall…if I knew it was going on sale I would’ve waited and bought two (a friend really likes it), but I needed a winter coat badly. This coat is keeping me warm and toasty against harsh New England weather. 100% satisfied!
I was looking for a new jacket-- one that was stylish AND warm. Sometimes that is hard to find... I am fairly petite, and was wondering if this jacket would be too bulky, but it's not! The jacket has a nice fit in all the right places that is true to size (for me, anyway). And with it being down fill, it's fitted, but still very warm! Perfect for Minnesota winters. And the hood... the hood is so nice and warm as well. I love that the hood trim extends down to the chest area so it also looks like a scarf. The faux fur is also THE BEST faux fur I've ever seen on a jacket. It looks great and is soft to the touch-- not scraggly and scratchy like most faux fur trims. The faux leather details on the shoulders and zippers adds a nice contrast. I got the black jacket, and expected it to gather and show every piece of pet hair, but surprisingly, it seems to repel pet hair in addition to water! The price is also great, too! My co-worker even bought the same one after she saw mine. We've gotten many compliments. Very pleased with this jacket and would recommend this to anyone wanting something warm, stylish, AND flattering!
I would recommend this if you're looking for a good down coat. It's very warm and stylish; however, the overall weight of the jacket/coat makes it feel too cumbersome for me to wear. I suspect it's due to the nylon type of material, which I understand is water repellant. While that is a plus, it's far heavier than my full length down coat. Furthermore, I found the size to be rather snug at an XL. I usually wear a large, but sizing chart indicated an XL. Unfortunately, I am returning the item.
