Men's Pattern Wool Topcoat
Great coat, with one caveat.
Love the coat, but wish the pockets were set a bit higher. Other than that, too many positives to list! (Note: Ignore the people who complain that the sleeves are too long - they're supposed to be long, to accommodate various arm lengths of customers of different sizes. The intelligent person understands that the coat will invariably needed to be tailored, at minimal cost.)

Nice looking coat
Great quality and fit for the money. Lighter colour than in the picture but it still looks great

Heavy duty warm commuter coat
I wear a business shirt 16/36 - This coat has a good length in the body sitting mid thigh. The shoulder sits exactly right. Arms are about 1 inch too long for me but this is offset by using the cuff button.
It is heavy duty for train or bus commuting and very warm. Not a fashion item.

Good fit with size 39. Handsome shape, warm enough in city. But brighter color than picture.

Nice in the pictures, but...
Something was a bit wrong with this jacket. My husband (5'10", 190#) loved it in the catalog, and we sprung for the grey herringbone color (size medium), even though it was extra. When we got it though, it didn't feel like he could fit a sport coat under it (which was the whole point), and the length was too long. He said the pockets seemed too low, and that the length was odd, not a short coat or a long one. Maybe it was made for a taller, skinnier guy. It was a really handsome coat though, and we returned it to try another.

Thick Quality Coat
I bought this for my husband and he loves it. The fabric is a standard grey herringbone, very nice quality, and very classic. The jacket is also thicker than I expected! He says it is super warm and comfy. I love how the jacket can be worn over a casual sweater and jeans or over a suit and give him a very nice sophisticated look.
Docking one "star" because the jacket lifts a bit when he lifts up his arms. It seems a bit wide in the shoulders. My husband has a nice tailored suit such that a similar thing happens, so we assumed it's just something with the way suit style jackets fit. Because this jacket is so thick it seems more obvious. Not a show stopper though, and the only times my husband will be lifting his arms while wearing it is on the subway.
Overall this is a very flattering jacket and will keep him very warm during the winter!

Looking good on the way to the office or a night at the opera!
Even if he he loved or hated this coat, my husband would never write a review so I'll give my take: it's perfect for him. He's suffered through Midwest winters trying to avoid wearing a topcoat but finally came around and bought this. It's stylish and nicely tailored with secure buttons and pockets that seem like they'll hold up to having gloves jammed in them constantly. The coat fits true to size and easily accommodates a suit jacket underneath without looking bulky. He thought the wool might be scratchy at the neck but it's very soft so no complaints. The herringbone pattern is quite handsome and ideal for camouflaging dirt, coffee, whatever. I didn't even know about the water-repellent finish, but that's a real plus that my own wool coats don't have.

Nice quality, runs large
Nice quality coat, ordered in the size my husband normally wears but it it was too large and had to return it.

The coat is perfect for me, but was tight in the shoulders, so I have returned it for a larger size as I want to be able to wear it over a sweater or suit jacket.

Beware Size Mismarked ???
I ordered large size since I wear 42 reg. When this coat arrived it was TOO small to wear over a shirt. This coat is supposed to be sized to wear over a suit jacket. Needless to say I was very dissapointed with the coat and Lands End. I have been a customer for 40 years. I returned the coat to the local Sears store. While there I noticed they had this coat in stock and thought I would try a extra large size since the large was so small. I got lost in the extra large. I was amazed by the difference in size between the coat I received and the coat in Sears so I decided to try on a large and to my amazement it fit perfect. I then tried a medium. The medium fit the same as the large I had ordered. Sears did an exchange. The only explaination must mean the large I received was actually medium even though it was labeled large. If you received a coat that is too small for your normal size it may also be be mis-labeled. I now would recommend this top coat both in size and quality.
