Rated 5 out of 5Â by SuSu I was sooo happy when I saw this item browsing the Anthropologie website, it's totally reminiscent of the old Anthropologie. When I had ordered it, it was only available in the mustard color.
I received it in the mail today and couldn't be more ecstatic. I ordered a medium, and I usually wear a medium with Anthropologie cardigans/sweaters/jackets depending on the cut, and because I tend to like a looser fit. Being 5'2 with a 34C bust, it fit perfectly, definately couldn't have done a smaller size. The sleeves are not fitted which makes me happy, because Anthropologie used to have really fitted sleeves with their sweater coats making it difficult to layer a long sleeve tee under. I would order your true size with this sweater coat.
The fabric is slightly itchy if you're not wearing anything under, since I plan on wearing it with long sleeve tees under it shouldn't be a problem. Personally with it's unique design I would still keep it even if I wear a tank under.
Since this is such a unique piece not sure if it'll make it to sale, I'd get it now if you don't want to miss out. Now, however that it just appeared in more color I'm contemplating getting it in red instead, or keeping both! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tulip1 Perfect for me!
Saw this sweater coat online and had to go into the store to give it a try! I am 6'1", so I fully expected the waistline to be too high and the sleeves too short. I was so pleasantly surprised - truth be told, I was ecstatic! Not only was the fit right on, but I was able to buy true to size instead of ordering up to account for length. I agree with the reviewer who said it was more straight than A-line. I usually dress casually #I'm a stay-at-home mom#, but this sweater coat will make cute jeans, boots and long-sleeve T look pulled together in a hurry! Often I wait for sales, but I had to grab this one full-price!

I bought this at the sale price. It was worth it. I wanted the camel color but it was sold out. I could not decide between the red and blue so I ordered both, one in small and one in medium as I wasn't sure on the size either.
So, here is how it all turned out: BOTH were ADORABLE. I was tempted to keep them both. The red is a true red unlike the photo on the site that seems to show a bit of a pinky red (or possibly it's just my computer screen?). The small was a bit tight. The medium was perfect. I am 5 ft 7in and 155lbs for reference.
One other note: this item is much lighter and thinner than it appears in the photos. I wasn't expecting a full weight coat, but I was expecting more than a sweater....but no- this is definitely a sweater. It is 100% wool which is nice. the 'itch factor' is not high at all but it is slightly present.
Did I miss anything?
In summary: I completely suggest this sweater coat esp at the sales price. I ended up keeping the blue although it was close- the red is very cute. Still WISH I could get my hands on the camel though :((( Quality is great and of course the material is great as it is wool.
I would say it fits pretty TTS, but since it is winter outer-wear, you might want to go up a size (or two) if you intend to layer a regular sweater underneath.
