Rated 5 out of 5 by Snger123 Top- of-the-line
All of the pieces that I've tried or bought by Tracy Reese have been beautifully designed and crafted with top-quality materials, and this lovely paisley coat does not disappoint. It gathers slightly at the waist all the way around, for a more feminine touch, and the hem-line lands about 8 inches above my knee (I would go for a size 6, at 5'8", 140 lbs, 34-B).
I was intrigued with the combo of 4 round polished-brass buttons above the waist-line, and 3 giant snaps below (there are 2 mini-snaps as well, to line things up just so). The colors are vivid-- this is a coat that smiles at you-- although I would say that the feel of the fabric is more durable than soft (75% poly, 25% wool) with a thick grain that promises to last over the years. When I tried it on, I checked for itchiness at the collar, and yes, I felt some around my neck. However, if were to wear this, I would grab one of my cashmere scarves, problem solved.
If I didn't already own two coats similar to this one, I would definitely snap this one up, perhaps on one of the "special sale" days that Anthro surprises us with every so often. It is whimsical, well-made and charming.

The picture does not do this coat justice. It is far more vibrant and beautiful in person. This is my second Plenty by Tracy Reese coat, and I love it just as much as the first. The fit is TTS, and it is the perfect fall coat

I'm totally in love with this coat. I've been eyeing on this gem for quite a while and was finally able to snatch it on Boxing Day. The quality is amazing. For reference, I'm 5'6, 118 lbs, 34A-25-36. I found the size 4 to be quite snug. Therefore, I went with the size 6 instead so I have room to do some layering. The buttons are quite sturdy and the color is very vibrant. However, I did find the coat to bleed a bit of color onto my beige leather handbag, staining it pink. Therefore, please beware of wearing this coat and rubbing it on light-colored surfaces. However, after I wore it with a red handbag, the colors matched and the problem was solved. Overall, it's a purchase you would not regret.
