This coat is a nice wool blend. Soft, warm, toasty if you layer beneath. It is well cut and the inset waist gives great waist definition. It hits me just at the knee which makes it versatile for both pants and skirts. It seems true to size as far as coats go, giving you room for at least one proper sweater. I took one star off because it has a tendency to wrinkle a bit and the A cut is a bit too pronounced leading to some flaring. If you are a woman whose hips are wider than her shoulders, this will probably be very flattering for you, but if your shoulders are broader, it will limit its use to more tailored pants.
