Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

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.

I am very happy with this jacket. It looks like a jacket not a shirt (it kind of looks like a shirt in the online photos). It is boxy as described but less so than I thought in would be. Re sizing I think it runs a tad on the large side. I am usually on the fence between a medium and a large in jackets and sweatshirts and the medium is better for me. I am 5'7 and weigh 132. I don't like jackets/tops too snug especially if I may wear a sweater underneath. Another reviewer said it looked utilitarian and it does, I like that. Brand new it is a little stiff but I can tell this will soften up nicely after a few washings. I think this jacket is timeless and will only get better with wear. It is a quality jacket very well made. Hope this helps! I love reading reviews before I buy something and hopefully this helps with sizing.
