I was in love with this jacket from the first time I saw it.
I was hoping against hope that it would go on sale, so I postponed my purchase as long as I could. Then they were all out of stock. I just kept checking every day to see if any showed up in my size. I wanted to order a medium, and none of those are ever came back in stock, so I tried a large , and it fit me well in spite of the fact I normally wear a size 8 in clothing, once in a while a 10 in coats. It is roomy enough to wear a sweater under it, But it drapes well and is not too big and baggy on its own with a regular shirt. I wear a 34D, and I had read the reviews said it was pretty tight across the chest. I don't think I would want it any smaller across the chest, but I didn't think it made me look bulky across the chest. The exterior is such a soft and lovely texture, and the interior of course has lovely Marino wool. It is about a half an inch thick so not like a super puffy coat, which I appreciate. I do wish the brown was a little more red, but the brown color is still looks very classy and timeless with the black. I especially love the two buckles that hold it closed near the top. I have difficulties with buttons, with zippers, and could potentially have problems with buckles, but these work easily for me. I was also tickled that this came from Fairfield Iowa where I used to live nearby as a kid.
