Rated 4 out of 5Â by Anthro1Lover HOW does the COLLAR work???
First of all , I love anything with a high collar... I ordered this online and just received it.. The collar has 2 buttons on the inside but how does it work?? I have been tucking the collar in each other so it looks like the picture here. Good quality, very warm for a fall day. The zipper starts high up as you can see in the picture. fits TTS... Love the coat if someone can explain the buttons on the collar??

Elevenses obviously put a lot of creative, careful planning into this gorgeous coat's design. For example, who knew that an angled front zipper (veering off to my left) could line things up in such a dapper way, flaring the bottom corners out just so? And the delicious collar that can be buttoned up into a muff for the neck-- both cozy and stunning.
Some details: soft thick fabric is made up of 57% wool and 43% poly/rayon; the outer color is a vivd blue-- the photo's are spot-on-- with a surprising green-print lining underneath; and a tie-belt brings it all together at the waist. I appreciate that there are no buckles to wrangle with. The sportsy element is the knit material that runs vertically on each side of the coat-- stopping under the arm-pit-- and that is echoed by the collar. I've never seen a stylish wool winter coat pull this off before. The only tricky part, as other reviewers have mentioned, is finding the two tiny, cob-webby little button-loops on the outside of the large knit collar. They are there, just camiflaged.
I tried on a size 6, which fit very cleanly over a sleeveless turtle-neck. For reference, I am 5'8", 140 lbs, 34-B. But I decided to purchase the size 8, so that it fits easily over long-sleeved shirts/sweaters. (There are two folds right at the back shoulder-blades-- I didn't like how these strained & puckered with the smaller size). I am eagerly awaiting for my size 8 to arrive in the mail-- as my grandmother would say: "Looks like a million bucks!"

This is probably my favorite and most used purchase from Anthro so far.
It is truly a gorgeous coat. I am short, and usually a size 10-12...so things make me look bigger or overwhelm my body easily. Also, I have a huge chest, which makes finding jackets difficult.
This was the perfect fit in a size 12. I can still layer underneath comfortably, and it looks great with everything - dresses, jeans, cords, you name it, it goes with it. I got the gorgeous turquoise color and I've gotten so many compliments while wearing it around my current residence in Portland as well as around in Seattle. I like to wear it with the collar buttoned up and it is so cozy and warm...just a tad itchy, but if I put my hair in it I don't notice. I have been out on nights where it's been in the low 30's and I've been pretty warm. I usually hang my coats on my office chair and then throw them in the backseat of my car while driving and I have not noticed any wrinkling or otherwise loss of shape.
I totally love this coat - it will be with me for many years!
