This coat is beautifully made and for $800 I expect no less. However, I should have checked other resources prior to buying. The color on this website is nothing like actual color of coat. I was expecting a nice dark red/wine as depicted on these photos. However, it is a bright magenta/dark fuscia more on the purpleish side that does not go so much with my wardrobe (even though I am a pink-loving person haha). I had hoped to pair it with the same skirt shown here and the peony sweater that was
... read more initially styled with said skirt but the colors do not truly match as much. For such a pricey coat I expected a color that I could mix and match better with rest of my wardrobe. Sad to send it back since it is such a beautiful design. I am 127b, 5'6" and the size 6 fit perfectly.
I then saw same coat from other retailers and you can see actual purplish color on the other websites. Oh well, so sad.

Unexpected Color, Fantastic Coat
I bought this during a 20% off sale which made it even more worth the price. I would have purchased and kept it regardless, but just got lucky.
Looking at the pictures online, I thought the coat was going to be red. However; when it showed up it is more purple. I still like the color and did end up keeping the coat.
I do think the buttons are sewn on well, but I was surprised it did not come with additional buttons in case one gets lost. These are very unique buttons so I can't imagine it

This coat is sliming and warm. It is longer than I expected on me, but I am short-and this was not problematic. I have been looking for a military style coat for a long time and am happy to have finally found one that I fell in love with.
I almost did not recognize that this is the vest I just bought in the store. I would almost think of it more as a sleeveless coat. The style and colors really stand out. It is a really great piece and because it's sleeveless, you can fit something bulky underneath on cold days. Very versatile. I am 5'4 and it hits at my knee, which I like much better than in the photo.

Perfect!! Super stylish and a great concept. It is a coat vest and exactly what I have been searching for. It provides warmth but you can layer as much or as little as needed. The material is very soft and there is a really beautiful lining. It runs true to size and is really flattering.

Love it! And love that I can get items like this in Petite! Wish you could purchase Petites in stores!!!
Not for everyone - this coat has an INTENTIONAL slightly oversized body and sleeves, with a short sleeve length, and a heavy fabric that is perfect for cold California winters (and maybe Fall weather everywhere else). The weight comes from what seems to be a lining of a heavy hunter -green-colored neoprene-like substance. It definitely feels substantial and worth the price. A coat like this would look amazing with crisp, clean lines, culottes, joggers, flatforms/clogs, OR can transfer into
... read more workwear and an everyday coat with jeans. If you buy it in your size, it will fit more like a slightly-oversized-but tailored feel. If you size up, it has the potential to look sloppy. You've been warned! The material is thicker so it doesn't always lay flat - in fact - its thick and somewhat stiff because of that neoprene-like fabric. if you get a size too big, it has the potential to stick out in weird places, like when raising/lowering your arms or also the back shoots outwards from the bottom hem.
Its my new favorite coat and I hope it will be yours too!
For reference: I'm 5'7", 130-135 lbs. (post-holidays: up to 140), 34 C, 27-28 waist, typically 4 in dresses. I purchased the Small.

If you have any curves at all then this will look like a sack on you. I wanted to love it because of the material and I've been looking for a blazer/ jacket that was heavy in weight. This just looked awful on me. Maybe for someone who is very slender this will work but I was highly disappointed in the cut.

Wonderful autumn coat!
This coat is wonderful! I am usually an XS-S in Anthro and I got the XS. It is supposed to be a bit large. Goes with everything and great quality.
Beautiful color and quality! Runs TTS in my opinion!

best vest of the season
i would have never purchased this vest based on the pictures online. i was at my local anthro store today and the sales associate put it in my room. i threw it on over a shirt just to see if i would want something else to layer with the outfit i had on and fell in love. the size is not as bulky as it appears, and the color is beautiful. it is very soft and will match so many of my fall and winter outfits. i purchased a size small (i am 5'5", 135lbs normally but currently 8.5 months pregnant).

Soft, chic and perfect length
I am petite, but got this in a normal XS and it fits perfectly without being too long on my torso. It is the SOFTEST thing I have ever felt and does wonders to a simple outfit.
Tried this beauty on today and I fell in love. The style is mega cool and so perfectly fall. Pieces like this are what make Anthro a contender for fall style! The fit is cool and oversized as a poncho should be. The next can be adjusted with the super cool oversized snaps and the colors are great! The only downside is it's a tad itchy, but that can be easily remedied by a long sleeve underneath. Love this!

My favorite piece of the season
I have been looking for a poncho that isn't too bulky, one that I would be comfortable wearing often throughout the fall and winter seasons. THIS IS IT!
I am typically a size 2 and an XS or S at Anthro. I tried on both the XS and S in this and honestly, both were great. I like the additional length that the Small provides, being that I'm tall, but I totally could have gotten away with the XS, as well. Yes, it's a little itchy because it contains wool, but I would never wear it without a long
... read more sleeve top underneath, so I gave that little thought. A very nice, sturdy, well-constructed piece that was entirely worth the full price, IMO. You won't regret this gem!

Loved it but returned it
I so wanted to love this poncho but it is just too stiff with an unappealing texture. The style is fun though so if you could handle the weight and texture of the fabric or just wear it as a coat instead of your main piece, then I think it would be fine for you. I had to return it. I ordered the size small for my 5'8" 128lb size 34B frame. I think I could have gotten away with an x-small.
Great sweater coat! I bought the camel color and it looks so good over all black. It runs large. I usually buy a medium in sweaters but his one I bought the small. It is very unique and a cool take on a peacoat.

Love this coat
Lightweight warm in cold nice as a day jacket. Works well as a casual coat. Very soft but a little wooly. It's really nice color. Thinking about buying another. I got the dark one.
I have been looking forever for a Moto jacket and it looks like I finally found mine!
Love the stretch
And the color is perfect

Great moto jacket
I absolutely love this unlined ,super soft moss suede moto jacket. I usually wear medium in jackets but needed small in this one. The sleeves are very long and the back is slightly cropped. The color is very dark , rich green. The grey is also very nice.
This jacket is the prefect lightweight jacket and looks so good on. It has a nice custom fit feeling. I am normally a small and had to size up for this jacket. Even with a medium, i won't be able to wear any bulking long sleeve shirts underneath. It's more of a jacket to wear with a tank or silky type shirt.

I bought this jacket at my Anthro store, and I'm glad I tried it on in person; it runs a tad small. It is SUPER cozy, and very versatile for fall/winter. It's something you can wear shopping, to yoga, or out on a date. I love it, and have gotten so many compliments on it!

Perfect fall jacket
YAY just got this in the mail. Color is just like the website photo. The two fabrics are soft, comfortable, and contrast well together. It looks awesome on. It is pretty fitted, but true to size. I am 5 ft 4 inches and the sleeves (XS) are just the right length. The thickest thing I could wear under this jacket is a thin sweater (very thin) - otherwise the sleeves would be too tight. Looks great zipped and open. I love it.
So I've read some other reviews of this jacket and have to say that I can't believe no one else has experienced a sizing issue. The sleeves were tight - not snug, but tight - while the shoulders were too large. Maybe I got a badly sewn jacket? There was only one medium in the store to try on, but this one fit so strangely that I didn't even think that another might fit. It's a great style, seems well made, and is really unique. I tried a Medium. I often wear a Small at Anthropologie, but

If you can fit into this, it's really cool!
I'm a solid size 12, M/L in shirts. The large on this jacket was no where even close to zip able. I don't think even a size XL would work. It's a shame because it's a really cute jacket and the brown is a great shade for fall. Size up! Or look for in store. Bummer that the fit is so bizarre on this!

Love this Jacket!
I tried this on in-store. I specifically went to the store to check it for sizing and I'm glad I did. For reference, I'm 100 pounds and 5'4".
I tried the brown color in XS. The sleeves extended about 1.5 inches past my wrists. The main part of the jacket came to the top of my hips with the wonderfully soft cardigan part came about 2 inches below that. The sleeves were perfect and not too snug. I love the waterfall collar which again was so cozy and soft.
The body part was a touch wide for me
... read more but the XS Petite I think will fix all of the length/sizing issues.
The brown color is nice and will go with more but the blue looks so lovely! The jacket also appears to be well made.
Wow, this jacket is the most stunning piece I have seen at Anthropology since a very long time. The quality is extraordinary! The jacket feels very soft on my skin and the substantial weight of the jacket makes for a great fit without constant need for adjusting. I will pair it with skinny jeans, a sleek black dress or a leather skirt. I feel like I am wearing a timeless designer piece that makes a fashion statement. I usually wear a size S or M in Anthro jackets but had to size down to XS due

Love, love, but way too big!
I SO wanted to keep this, but the XS was even too big. I usually take an XS/S Petite and thought I could get away with the XS of this. It is just too big. So sad to be returning it, wish it came in an XXS or Petite.
