Rated 4 out of 5Â by RFB723 BEAUTIFUL Cape BUT cheap buttons
This cape is really nice! The fabric has a good weight to it, perfect for Fall. The sewing as well as lining is good and gives the cape a quality feel. The cut is a generous size, I could easily size down. However, since I'll probably wear it with sweaters under and it comes with a tie, I'll keep my regular size. My only gripe is the buttons. They're cheap plastic and they are sewed on very loosely, almost like an afterthought. I'll either have them completely replaced with better quality buttons or have these reinforced and replace them after they wear. For the sale price I can afford to do it and even though I would recommend this item I wish Anthro would pay more attention to detailing (like buttons).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BuffyCat I feel British in this Jacket/Cape!
This cape is awesome. If you are not used to capes, and all of their wonders, I would not recommend it. It has a tendency to widen you. I love the look it gives tho, the arms are very wide, but it has a totally Sherlock kind of British military look. The only gripe I have with it is the buttons, they are a little loose, and one fell off the second time I wore it, so I double sewed all of mine. I think it runs slightly large, so beware! Over all, i love this jacket cape, but I can see how it would not work for all people.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by lovetoshop24hoursday Really enjoying this
I bought this on a whim a few weeks ago with the extra sale prices and am really enjoying this one. For reference, I am 5'2", 134 lbs. and ordered a size 4. It does run a little big - I think the 4 is the right size, but I might have been able to wear a 2. Being short, I expected this to be much longer on me than the model, but it is not - and may be even a bit shorter; the back hits me on the lower part of my rear end. As far as the buttons (which have had many comments) they don't strike me as being cheap or expensive - they are lightweight, but don't seem like they will tarnish any time soon. I have not had any issues with them coming off after several wears either. The description that this has a british look is a pretty good one. This is a nice, medium weight fabric which will serve through most non-extreme weather. So far, I have worn it with skinny jeans, skinny pants and a pencil skirt and always get comments. I like it better than I thought I would!
