Rated 5 out of 5 by megB Good choice, good color
I LOVE this coat. I ordered it in blue in an XSmall. I wear it almost every day and get lots of compliments, especially on the color. It is warm and well made.
My only displeasure is that the neckline is a little low so I always need to wear a scarf to stay warm. This is because I am very petite- 5'1 ~103lbs. I wish Madewell had petite sizes!
Otherwise, I love this coat! It is one of my prized possessions.

Open, it's relaxed and cool, and closed it's truly stunning and figure flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fromlily Vibrant color, chic design, a good buy
I purchased this coat in royal blue, and I really love the color! I received many compliments on this coat. Design is chic and simple, and so it goes with both casual and formal look. This coat does not feel very oversized to me, I usually wear size 0 or xs, and so I purchased this coat in xs too. I think if I wanted a more oversized look, I should have sized up and purchase it in size small. But I liked more fitted look. Overall, it is a great buy!

Should've listened to other reviewers...The color and material is good... but the shape...I really don't get it...

I really really wanted to like this coat but after first getting a Small blue and having the sleeves be inches too short, and then getting the black in Medium and still finding the sleeves too short and the coat general ill-fitting I'm giving up on finding my Car Coat at Madewell. Too bad.

I disagree with the other reviewer: I found the quality of the material and the construction to be in line with typical Madewell products -- very high! The color is also amazing.
However, the cut of this is just terrible. They don't show it buttoned up on the model from the front and that's because it looks completely shapeless (like a sack) that way. It is cut completely straight and loose on the body, so that it made my (large) chest look non-existent and my hips bigger than they are. I don't even know how that's possible, but there it is.
I wanted to make it work, but back it went.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kitkat001 Disappointing
The cobalt blue colour is fabulous but the other aspects of this coat are disappointing. It is not oversized as depicted in the photo and the description. The material is really stiff and uncomfortable. The sleeves are too short. I am usually impressed with madewell quality but this item definitely doesn't meet my expectations at all.
