Rated 5 out of 5 by sister2 So Cute
I saw this sweater coat in the store in red and loved the detail, i.e., the hood, toggle closing, combination of colors, fabrics, etc. Had a hard time deciding between the small and xs, but bought the xs. I usually wear a 2 or a 4. Even with the xs I was able to wear a blazer underneath. The fabric is unlined and therefore somewhat thin, but it's boiled wool so it's very dense. The cuffs fit snugly at the wrists making it feel warm and snugly. Though I have long arms, the sleeves were plenty long due to the ribbed cuffs and I did not find the sleeves to be too tight at all. Frankly, I'm surprised by the negative reviews..

Rated 3 out of 5 by Delveen I fell in love with this jacket when I first spotted it on line and on the model but in real life when I tried it on, it was just a bit blah for me. I would possibly conside this if it went on sale?

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanInLA Beautiful and unique!
I never write reviews but I wanted to respond to the negative reviews of this product, which almost made me not buy this beautiful sweater! First, it is a SWEATER, not a coat, and it fits--as designed--closely through the shoulders and chest, then flares out in a trapeze shape. It fits on me exactly like it does on the model, and is adorable. I say it runs large because I have very broad shoulders and long arms and a S fits perfectly. (I should add that I have a small chest (32B) which is probably good for this cut.) Also, the material is thin boiled wool--I can see this might seem a strange texture if you're unfamiliar with this material, but I love boiled wool. The pockets, cuffs, collar, and hood are all interesting whimsical details that make this a classic Anthro piece. Love!
