Rated 5 out of 5┬áby iggy74 LOVE
This little jacket rules. I am 5'8", 32D, 130 lbs with a long torso, and the small fits perfectly. Fitted enough to be very flattering, roomy enough to wear over more than a tissue-thin shirt. Asymetrical zip.
Cons: Price (yikes! But I know I will wear it a ton and I doubt it will make it to the sale rack) and DRY CLEAN only. But it's boiled wool, ladies, which basically means you can run a marathon in it and it shouldn't stink. Lovely, I know. ;-)
The pros win in this case. Supercute, warm, great fit, and the ivory even looks good next to my ghostly pale skin. Winner.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Kerfufflous1 Man I wish I could afford this
I tried this sweater/coat on in the store and was instantly in love. I'm about 130 lbs, 34B and the x-small looked fantastic. I loved the way the collar looked like an Elizabethan ruff when you zipped the collar all the way up. The only difficulty was that the zipper was a little sticky and caught on the knit collar really easily when you zipped it high.
And of course, it was way out of my budget. :(

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Bluemint I loved it, great fit, original
Taking into consideration the positive and negative feedback posted previously I decided to go try it in the store. I had low expectations but it met my top requirements: very nicely fitted at the waist (unlike in some of the photos here), enough room in the sleeves to wear long sleeves in the winter and the wide collar made my face look great (I love wide collars, they are very flattering). I picked a Small size as I'm usually a size 4-6 for tops and I have shoulders may be on the broader side (16") for a 32" chest (all around). I didn't bother trying to order a Petite size: the sleeves are too long but easy to cut (no seams). I didn't find the wool to be too scratchy (but some people like it really soft). The only downside is that dark colors would show underneath a bit as there is no lining but that was fine with me. I plan to use home dry cleaning and perhaps one professional dry cleaning every year.
