I have been looking at this coat for quite some time. I went to the store planning to get the olive, but ended up getting the black and brown combination. Both colors are beautiful, but after trying them on, I decided on the black and brown combination. The black is striking and sporty with a touch of elegance. The photos don't do it justice. The black has a timeless look. I opted to take off the arm leather bands, which is easy to do, as I prefer the more streamlined look. I tried both a small and a medium. I am 5'9", 135#, age late 50s, generally tall and slender. The small fit better and offered a fitted stylish look. I love it and know I will wear it often! I am so happy I finally got it!
