Better than I Expected
 from Kirkland, WA,  Nov 7, 2011

I ordered this coat looking for about a knee length black overcoat that would be classy in casual or format settings. The coat is a delightful dark black, and the fabric is light enough that it doesn't weigh on your shoulders, but is very warm, so only buy if you want a coat that will keep you cozy. The coat ran just a little bit large in the chest (I ordered a 42, but knowing what I do now I'd probably like a 40) but this is by no means a dealbreaker, I'm not sending it back, so don't worry over it too much, just don't order larger than your measured size. The hem is nice and long (approximately knee length to mid calf depending on how tall you are) so if you're worried about the coat being too short, i.e. mid-thigh, don't. Unless you're VERY tell, or genuinely want a coat that's at your ankles or so, I'd advise you to go with the regular length. This was better than I was expecting, and I would definitely advise this coat to someone looking to get a black trenchcoat, it can create either a Bohemian look or a classy gangster look alternately. It doesn't seem to attract lint, hair and other gunk quite as easily as most woolen black fabric, which is definitely a plus for me! Still, bear in mind black does make tagalongs more conspicuous, so I'd advise carrying a little lint roller in your pocket just in case. All in all, weighing in at ***, good quality and construction, classy appearance, warmth of fabric, and almost perfect sizing, a steal of a deal for someone looking for a black trench.
