Women's Boiled Wool Jacket
I bought this jacket at the last minute and I am glad I did!
I was going on a river cruise and I wanted a nice jacket to wear over jeans or slacks for cool evenings. I was pleasantly surprised how the tailoring flattered my figure nicely without looking or feeling bulky when I wore a sweater underneath. The lining is very nicely done and comfortable. The jacket looks and feels like it costs a whole lot more than I spent for it! I am 5'1" and 110 pounds and I bought a size regular 4.

The fabric feels like I am wearing a loofa sponge, and the golden burlap color is so ugly. Back it goes.
The fit is fine, but, I would never wear the Golden Burlap color in public.

Fabric Makes This Classic Jacket Heavy
This jacket's fabric content of 51% boiled wool and 49% rayon is a very heavy fabric. I like wool for its lightweight warmth, so I returned this well made classic jacket. Please make your boiled wood jackets in 100% wool.

Way too itchy!
I didn't find the fit of this item very flattering but I bet it would look flattering on a different body type (not too curvy). I'm giving the "fair" 2 star review because of the fabric quality. So scratchy and itchy on the outside and unfortunately it scratches at the hems. There is no way I would be able to wear this jacket for more than 10 minutes without gloves. Returned.

arm cuts too tight
Something is seriously wrong with the arm size. It is way too tight. I tried several times, all failed. I dig out my other petitie XS coats from other brands just too make sure and none has the same problem. I am petite XS. Maybe it only apply to XS sizes. Everything else is good. Too bad.

Love the color and fit
I ordered this coat in more than one size to be sure to get one that fit. I am wearing a 18Misses but ordered Capri Seas in a 16W. Fits great, and I love the color. Really cute coat for the price.

I am delighted with the quality and fit of this boiled wool jacket.
I ordered the pumpkin color first in my regular size 16W. It was too large, so I reordered it in 14W which fit perfectly on my long-armed apple shape. I am not one to wax rhapsodic about clothing, and it is rare that I don't find something wrong with today's garment construction, so I was pleasantly surprised to find these jackets beautifully made with a classic fit that is slimming and colors that are wonderful. Even the buttons are sewn on to stay. I don't like clothing with a lot of whoop-de-do, so I enjoy the spare details and clean lines of this jacket. I found it a perfect weight for driving around in our frigid Iowa winter, and with a sweater under it I was warm enough to run errands or shovel snow. I especially like the collar, because I can button up against the wind. In short, this jacket matches up to my high expectations of what well made clothing should feel like and look like. I received many compliments on the pumpkin jacket right from the get-go, and the fit was so slimming that I ended up ordering the blue and the teal jackets also. I have hardly worn any of my other winter jackets since. Thank you for a most excellent product.

Full disclosure: I bought this car coat at a significant discount so in all honestly, I probably would not have paid full price for it simply because I am a bargain shopper. The coat is not intended to keep you warm in a blizzard but it is a very nice car coat and the colour is fantastic and the fit is perfect.. I've received many compliments. I would probably give it 5 sails except I've already noticed a little pilling around the sleeves and inside of the arms..

RUNS VERY SMALL
This is my 2nd try at this jacket. I am 5'9" tall and have ordered both a regular and a tall. Neither fit. Sleeves were too short and it is cut very narrow. The jacket is nice with great colors and of good quality but just cut way too small.

I get so many compiments on this coat. It is a classic. I love this coat so much, I have it in 3 colors. It runs a bit large, which is fine for winter if you wear a sweater underneath. I bough a size down in the light blue for late winter early spring when just wearing a shirt or blouse underneath. I hope they offer this coat again in future winter seasons.
