Rated 5 out of 5 by MulberryGirl Luv!
Quality, quality, quality - that's what I LOVE about this coat. I fell in love with the style once I saw it, but waited for a sale/ discount code. So HAPPY with this purchase. I'm 5'3 / 148/ curvy purchased a size 6 and 8 and the 6 fits perfectly. Enough room if I wear a sweater no puling in the chest area. I understand the other reviewers comment on how this style is not the best for curvy girls, BUT it is flattering and if it was a cut any straighter it wouldn't have fit the bill. The cut is flattering for all shapes, but be aware it runs BIG! I sized down. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Apples Modern but Classic
I am 5ft 2" 115 and the 0 fit perfect. The length hits just below the knees and the arms are not super long as is sometimes the case. I would say the coat runs a little big but I like that I can still wear sweaters underneath. If you want a tight fit I would say size down? All in all, very cute/ stylish and great quality similar to jcrew coats for the price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by minders Cool, Classic, Timeless
Even though this was an online only item, I had a feeling it would be a quality product. So I ordered it and I'm happy with my purchase. Like I said in the title, this coat is classic and timeless with a bit of an edge (a little leather strap detailing on the shoulder). I'm 5'5.5 at 135lbs with an hour glass figure and I find the cut not overtly flattering but flattering enough. It's a serious-I-pay-for-good-shiz-and-I-care-about-style kind of coat. Classes up any outfit and cleans up any messy bun hair day. The only negative is that it's a bit heavy but if you don't mind that, go for it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MMC33 Nice coat.
I eyed this coat for a while. I'm pretty happy with it. I like the overall style, the quality of the wool is good, and the details are nice. That said, I'm not wowed. I was surprised by the cocoon shape to the coat - I thought it would fall straight. It is also larger than the specs I was given by Customer Service. So, I'll be spending a pretty penny in alterations to slim it down. With the cost of alterations, the coat was no great deal... so that is a bummer. Still, it has a great menswear vibe and it will be nice and warm next winter. Wish it had an interior pocket - might pay to have one added. Shouldn't all coats have an interior pocket???
Bottom line - nice coat. Not an awesome coat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hallie Poor Quality
Though I really like the style of this coat and it is warm, I am very disappointed with the quality. I have only had the jacket for two weeks and already two of the front buttons have fallen off, and all of the other ones are loose. This is especially disappointing because of the price - It's not a cheap jacket. It's going to be expensive to have a tailor replace all the buttons so that they don't fall off again. It's a shame because as I said it's a really great jacket otherwise! Unfortunately though I can not recommend it to anyone and I will not buy outerwear from Madewell in the future.
