I almost don't know where to start when discussing this coat! I only leave reviews when I am ecstatic, I am ecstatic about this coat!!! I love beautiful pieces, and this coat is beautiful. Due to both the cost and the timeless style, I consider this an investment purchase. The fit is perfect for me I bought an 8, I am 5' 6", 36c, it is fairly lightweight (not thin) so I should be able to wear it on the chillier days in Southern California. This coat is consistent with Overland products, buy it if you can. If it's not your style, buy something else from this company - you will not be disappointed!!!!!!!
