Rated 4 out of 5┬áby cloudcover A Little Mao-Tse-Tung-ish
My initial hesitation in purchasing this item was that to me it looked more like a shirt than a jacket on the model and its overall boxy appearance. I am pleased to say that in person the quality is exceptional and it is much more weighty than it appears but the boxiness is definitely a fact. The small is too big for me in the body (I am 5'3", 125lbs, anthro size 4) so it definitely didn't fit like the picture. It looked more Chinese communist with the length reaching the top of my thighs with lots of room overall. Sideways the back poofed out a bit. I wish it was more tailored, I think that would give it a more feminine fit. Haven't decided on returning it, it's starting to grow on me.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby tillyd Great coat
Absolutely love the coat. Great fit. Denim is quite heavy which matches the style of the coat. I am looking forward to seeing how it wears. Hopefully it will soften nicely. Not as boxy as I thought it could be.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby GirlMadchen Good quality but oddly small around hips
Great heavy jacket. Lovely quality and interesting design. A bit boxy and the large fits well all over, except round the hips. I'm struggling to do up the lower button without it straining and it's odd that the jacket is cut this way when the rest of it is so roomy. I do have broad hips, but even so, this is an unusual fit issue for me. Hourglass figures may want to try before buying. Very stiff fabric - will take some time to break it in and soften. The jacket comes with internal "pockets" around the inside, lower 8" or so of the jacket.
