The coat is beautiful and warm. Fits a little bit tight. I am tall and I also have long arms, and the sleeves are not very long for me.

Sleeves are long enough,which was a big concern for me. Coat is as cute as the picture shows. Very unique. Warm enough for spring or fall. Can't button top button across my chest if I have something too bulky under it but that's the only problem with fit. Tricky to press or steam so patience is required in that regard

Love this coat. So cute and stylish! Also warm. Lovely. And there are pockets! Like most formal/nice coats, they were sewn up at the mouth of the pocket, but a seamripper took care of that easily.Two thumbs up!

I absolutely adore this jacket. This coat is more the weight of a blazer, so it would work better for early fall or early spring when it's still a bit cool out but not very cold. Probably good for 50 degree weather. I love the corset-like ribbon lacing on the back...although I wish the ribbon were a bit more substantial. It makes it easy to customise the size...I wear a dress size 16/18 and I'm busty 42 DDD and this fit me fine once I let the ribbons out a bit. However, the sleeves are a bit long...I have long arms and the sleeve comes down to about 2 inches above my knuckles.Another reviewer asked about the pockets...they are easy to open without messing up the coat...if you poke a finger into hole at the beginning of the pocket, you'll feel some stitching inside. There is about an inch or so of fabric extending below the stitching...just pull your finger along the seam, and it will open with a little effort, exposing your new pockets

I was buying this coat as a gift and the photo online makes it look as if the coat is grey with black threading but when I received the coat it was totally brown in every way. What I thought was a grey color online was actually a light brown and the black threading was actually dark brown. It's just the way the coat comes out in pictures, you just can't tell from the photo. The person I was gifting for never wears brown so I returned it but it's still a beautiful coat just be aware it is brown.
