Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sohara SO BEAUTIFUL
As the title says, in all caps because I couldn't help myself, this coat is SO lovely. It scoops up around the waist like a dress shirt and then hangs down in back, making for a lovely line. If you've got a defined waist, this coat lets the viewer definitely see that. It's not too short around the sides; it's just lovely. The fur sleeves are quite shiny and were nice and just right on the length for me (I'm 5'6"). The hood IS detachable via zipper, which is awesome.
This coat also keeps out the wind brilliantly, and it's super-wonderfully warm. Seriously, I think the sleeves are totally windproof. The body isn't too shabby at keeping out wind, either, and I'm abnormally sensitive to cold/wind. The wool body DOES look brown if you're wearing black pants. Still, I plan to wear this with some knee-high black leather stiletto boots and rock it for all it's worth with some sunglasses and a serious attitude.
Fits TTS. Would probably overwhelm somebody petite. Looks especially awesome when you wear high, high shoes. I weigh 125 and generally wear an XS at Anthro; asked for and received an XS and it fits beautifully.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bohofunk I think it takes a petite frame to pull this off
My shoulders were too broad for this jacket. I felt like a football player in it. Also the straps are a little cheap looking. The faux fur is not bad and the wool is great quality. The hood is fantastic. The scoop side was also a no go for me, it just hit me at the wrong spot : (. Oh also not warm enough for the North East in dead winter. Moderately warm.

I am so in love with this coat/jacket. It looks good on me and it looks good on its own. And it doesn't hurt that I get tons of compliments every time I wear it. That's always good for the ego.
