Women's Pattern Wool Swing Car Coat
Buy a size down in tall!
I am a size medium tall with a height of 5'9" and weight of 142lbs. The size 10 T was too big in girth for me. Needed a size 8 T. The sleeves were long enough as was the overall length. The shoulders were wide enough across as well. Very well made. Love the angled pockets! When you take it out of the bag the weight tells you this coat is real. I will not exchange for a smaller size though, only return, because I don't like the tweed color. Will look to buy this type of coat in solid black instead.

Very well made- sizing runs large
I received my coat today and was very impressed with the quality and the detailing. I ordered a size 8 and the top was a little large but from the waist down it was quite loose. I know that it is a swing-style and so the bottom is supposed to be more A-line but this was way too big, especially around the waist.
I am exchanging it for a size 6- hopefully that will work as it is a beautiful coat! For reference I am 5' 6", 140 lbs and have an "hourglass" shape.

Liked the coat from the waist up. Didn't like the back pleat as it just emphasized my butt and didn't really seem to have a purpose - it wasn't flattering. I was going to try to sew it closed but I thought it would be too lumpy to sit on.

Really Nice Coat
Fits beautiful, has a nice shape. Perfect for the Fall or Spring...
I would buy this coat again if it came in different colours and fabric.
Very Flattering shape. I also agree with the comments about the "itchy neck" I read before I purchased this coat but..... it is made of wool and a light scarf or collared shirt prevents the slight itch you may get around the neck.
Very Happy with my coat.

GREAT Tall Gal Coat
I'm so glad my daughter taught me to read reviews (and search Tall Womens Coats) if I'm going to buy online because I LOVE this coat!! Yes I had scarves in case collar itched. I'm a tall gal who needed a new stylish coat. My daughters love this coat on me. Yes I purchased it bigger for suits etc. but I'm happy and it was warm in DC weather!!! First time ordering and I will be back.....

Good but not as warm as claimed
Ordered one size down and fit was fine on my tall size 12 pear shaped body. Material is fairly closely woven for a tweed, looks nice and feels fine.
I don't consider myself particularly sensitive to cold and live in a place where it has been between 5 and 25 degrees the last two weeks;this is the temperature range the coat is rated for. This coat is fine for a quick walk from car to a building and since I wanted it mostly for dressier occasions I will keep it for those. I will continue to use a down coat for waiting for the bus or going for walks in this weather.

Beautiful coat and fit, but itchy
I love the look of this coat. However, it is VERY scratchy. For anyone who has any sensitivity to wool, the neckline must be covered by a soft scarf to make it work.
I have been wearing it in the warmer winter weather of New England this year. It feels a little tighter than I'd like, perhaps because I'm wearing heavier layers than it can handle.
Overall, it is a beautiful coat and is exactly what I wanted. I would like it a bit bigger, and I really wish it didn't itch!

My husband encouraged me to get this coat instead of a shorter pea-coat style to replace my worn-out fall coat. He was right (don't tell him please!). I love it. I wear it nearly every day, with jeans, slacks or a skirt. I am 5'8". The length and swing works well for me, plus it keeps my tushy warm. I got the tweedy gray color. Have had it a few months and it still looks like new.

Nice dress coat
The petite small is a perfect length in the sleeves and overall length for me. It looks custom tailored, and the black and white tweed goes with anything. It may not be warm enough for the middle of a Minnesota winter, but I usually travel with a backup down jacket in the car, just in case. Nice coat!

This coat fits me to the "T".
The quality is superb. The workmanship could not be better. I have been wearing this coat to my job in court.
