Rated 3 out of 5Â by captaincat Cute, but no lining
I have been on the hunt for a cape-jacket for quite some time - something to transition from nippy fall winds to early winter. When I saw this, I immediately clicked add to basket.
The design is quite nice - a nice A-Line shape without becoming too swing-y or full and the details on the buttons are absolutely adorable. (They are little anchors and rope twined around them.) However, for a $350 jacket, it should at LEAST be lined - but it isn't. The wool, while a nice quality, is wool - meaning that it is slightly scratchy to wear alone and too "porous" to keep out any winds.
It was a nice idea, but sadly too expensive for a wool jacket that would be too warm to wear anytime but moderately chilly weather.

It's a great little piece that's infinitely wearable. Do I wish it were lined? Yes. However, I've found it to be ideal for transitional weather and easy enough to layer under when it's chilly.

This is what I am going to wear on the plane going on vacation. I wasn't looking for something heavily lined so I am delighted with my cape. Both my friend and I could wear this cape. I am 5'3",busty and have narrow shoulders and my friend is 5'9", smaller chested with wider shoulders. It really is one size fits all! I love the fact that it can be a pea coat over jeans or if I turn up the collar, the coat then becomes more dressy over dresses. What I like most is that it is classic and won't go out of style. To me this is an investment staple piece.
