I'm not into Victorian fashion, but I do like menswear inspired designs, so this coat appealed. The construction is great quality and the material also looks great. I normally have to get an XL in coats because of my shoulders and bust. I'm a 36C, which is pretty average, yet to get most coats to fit me through the chest, they end up being very loose everywhere else. This coat was the same, except that I was able to tighten the corset ribbon in back and make it look a little more tailored. This was helpful, but I don't think it makes the coat 5-star because ideally it should be tailored to draw in below the bust. The arms are also SUPER big. I mean BIG. They are very loose all the way down the arm, and they are also extremely long unless you are pretty tall. I'm 5'4 and the arms hang below the tips of my fingers. The coat is also long, at 5'4 it goes quite a bit past my knees. This combined with the arms makes the coat look oversized in a way. It will be most flattering on taller

I absolutely love this coat. It is lightweight enough for warmer nights, but still keeps you warm during the autumn days. I feel als though I walked straight out of Sherlock Holmes when wearing this coat. The only down side seems to be that the sleeves, at least on my coat, were extraordinarily long and I had to get them tailored.

This coat is beautiful, well made, great fit that can be adjusted, and is very slenderizing. It's warm without being heavy. There are only the two buttons plus one on the inside opposite but there's enough of an overlap to keep the coat from blowing open, and it gives you plenty of room for sitting and driving. I've been stopped several times while out and about to be complimented on it and asked where I got it. The only thing I'd have changed about it is to not have waited so long to order it!

Like others have stated, the arms on this coat are long, something us tall women can never find. If you are 5'9 and taller, we finally have a beautiful coat that we don't have to keep tugging on the sleeves and doesn't ride up to high waters while we're driving a car. I am 5'11 and 190 pounds and the Large fit just right. It is so elegant and rich looking that I may have to buy another as a back up!

I adore this coat. I'm 5'10, 170lbs and ordered the large. It fit perfectly! The sleeves are longer than on most coats, but that was part of the appeal for me. My arms are long and most coat/shirt sleeves hit just a bit too short. Not this one. I get compliments whenever I wear it, and I love the corset ties in the back. They make it easy to loosen the coat up to wear over layers or tighten it down for a fitted look. If they ever make this coat in another color, I will be all over it!
