Rivington Sweater-Coat

Rivington Sweater-Coat is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Find it true to size Enough of reviews about good this coat looks (which I totally agree! LOVE!), I want to share my thought about the size. I am 5’3”, 108lbs, usually a XS due to my broad shoulders, and I have tried XXS and XS. They both fit fine, so I have been debating for so long on which one I should go with. I end up ordering XS and I am glad I did! it allows me to roll up the sleeves 2 inchs up, showing just the right amount of wrists to get a sharper look. XXS would be too short to roll up the sleeves for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality witches cape I'm a 6'-2" Male. I got a small and the sleeves were a tad short for me. A medium would probably fit me better even though I'm a men's large typically. However, I bought this for my girlfriend and the small fits her just right. She's 5'-8". Despite its short sleeves I will probably wear this when my girlfriend isn't around or when I'm practicing the dark arts. It's dope. She really likes it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My everyday go-to I loved this sweater so much from last year (light gray) that I couldn’t resist buying another in charcoal. It is slightly oversized, but I love that style so I ordered mine in my usual size. Last year I ordered it a size down, which worked out since the material stretches with time—just wanted the oversize look more apparent this year. The sweater does pill, as some folks have mentioned. It’s not that bad, and I wore it way too much last year, so if anyone’s sweater pilled it should have been mine! I stand by the 5-stars, but I will say this: The images provided here, of the charcoal color, reveal a seam down the center of the back, which made me wonder if the new version differed from last year’s. 1. Confirming this seam is NOT on the sweater. 2. It’s a little weird for Madewell to use an image of an obviously tailored sweater on their website. Makes me second-guess ordering online since you can’t fully trust the product image. Still a forever fan. Just a smart one. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I absolutely love it! I'm 5'5, 117 lbs and got my usual size XS. The green is beautiful and feels luxurious. Very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy I have gotten more than a handful of compliments on this sweater-coat. I absolutely love the color, as it's perfect for fall. It's incredibly cozy and warm as well. I did size down with a small, as normally I am a medium in most things. It sits nicely on the body and I especially love that it has pockets. I would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run don't walk I'm a MW lover because they last forever. This one again makes me want to live in it until next summer. The color is true from the picture and is prettier in person. Super light but stylish shaped. Runs 2 sizes large so size down. I'm 5'6, 130 broad shoulders regular S in other brands, XS in MX but XXS fits perfectly with a little room for a shirt or a thin sweater under it. The day I received my mail package I realized my size already sold out. Run don't walk to get it when it still has your size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy fall to early winter sweater Beautiful sweater that is toasty warm and very thick. It does not have much shape to it - very large and flowy. Instantly elevates a look. I love it with big sweaters and turtlenecks underneath. Looks great with my Madewell jeans too! I am petite and have a muscular build at 5’ 1”, 110 lbs and I bought the XXS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I am obsessed with this sweater-coat. It is so comfortable and cozy and can easily be dressed up or down. I've gotten so many compliments on it. I am usually a size S at Madewell, but sized down to an XS and it fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute wool sweater coat! I'm 5'2 and the xxs hits about an inches below my knees. I love that it's thick enough to have that boxy&structural feel but still lightweight and not stiff like a coat. The fit is meant to be oversize so I think it's best to stick with your original size, unless you're in-between sizes-then sizing down might be the better. It's not the softest since it's 100% wool but that also means no pilling!
