A Beautiful Coat At A Great Price!
Discovered the Overland brand on a recent trip to New Mexico. Wow! What a lovely store (Sante Fe) with friendly and helpful staff! Did not plan on buying a coat but I have, of course, wanted a shorter shearling jacket having already got a 3/4 length shearling coat for decades.
Tried the Medium on first, I am a Size 6 or 8 with other brands, it was fine as I like things roomier anyway. But seeing there were Small and Extra Small, I tried them on too. Extra Small was more fitting with just a T-shirt on and looked great while the Small I could layer a denim jacket on too. Hubby reckoned Extra Small since sleeves are of perfect length, I went for Small and just rolled the sleeves up a bit more to reveal the beautiful thick pile of wool 😊
The lady who helped us (Janet or Janice) hearing that we were traveling from Chicago, offered to ship for free. I am so glad she suggested that option! We bought a few more items too! Even hubby found something for himself (he is known to dislike shopping).
What the others have said is correct, it's such a beautiful piece at an excellent price for the quality! It is true that the pockets are smaller (though they work out for my smaller hands anyway) - I would not recommend putting a bunch of items in there (I tried that with my vintage brown shearling coat, not a good idea to begin with as shearling coats are already heavy no reasons to drag down even further).
The other reviewers had already mentioned how lovely the top leather and inside wool feel, those are all true. What I would add is how impressed I am that even the pockets and zippers show the pride in workmanship. I am so glad we found this brand, a shame there isn't one in Chicago. Guess we'll have to check out the store in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin - being the closest to Chicago. Thanks so much for a great product at a good price point but most of all, for your people from the ones making the coat to your store personnel. Keep making them happy and proud!
