Women's Boiled Wool Jacket
This is the first Landsend wool coat/jacket that doesn't fit. I always wear a size 8. This one is too tight in the chest, shoulders and arms - almost couldn't button it up. The colour - berry - is beautiful and the fabric feels nice

Beautiful jacket - runs a little large...
Beautiful jacket- the midnight sky colour is just stunning - the best blue I've found - but no longer available in plus sizes. :( Please LE bring back this colour in plus sizes. I have a number of friends who have jumped online to order this coat and colour after seeing mine and been disappointed. Great jacket that runs a little large.

Beautiful Coat, but...
Have bought four of these coats and kept them all because it is a beautiful jacket. Gave it only four stars because of size problems. Here is what I found. The black REGULAR medium, one inch below arm is 38 inches. The very pretty Dark Berry in a PETITE Medium measured in same place is 42 inches, a difference of four inches, WOW. The Teal PETITE medium is 39 inches.The ivory in reg medium was the same size as the black. Kept all the jackets, just have to adjust what I am wearing under them. The Dark Berry is the perfect fit for me, can even wear a light sweater under that one. Wish all the others fit the same. I am 5'2" weigh 122 lbs. 36 D bra. Pleased with Lands end this makes eight coats I have bought from Lands End, first time I have had a problem with size. Do I recommend shopping at Lands End? YES
Thank You Lands End. Just so sorry about the size problem with this jacket.

What's happened to LE sizing?
I used to be able to buy LE clothes with confidence, knowing a 12 was a 12... Lately, the sizes cannot be depended upon and this jacket was a good example. No where close to a 12P... arms and back were so tight that I was afraid if I moved, the jacket would rip. The quality was fine and the color beautiful but it's clearly mis-sized. It's going back!

Love this jacket!
I am so happy I made this purchase, the jacket is lovely. I got the pumpkin color in a size 12. I could have worn a 10 but it would have been a bit snug and there would not have been room for anything with any bulk, like a sweater, to wear under it. Oftentimes I get a petite as the sleeves can be too long, but I did not find that to be the case with this jacket. It's not a heavy jacket but it's not lightweight either. It's just right.

TIGHT in shoulders and arms.
I agree with the reviewers who said this runs small in the arms and shoulders. I was surprised how tight the size 8 that I usually wear was. I rechecked the measurements and I am right between an 8 and 10 in the bust. The 8 felt constricting and very tight in the shoulders, arms, and bust. The waist area fit fine. Maybe it is the lining that is so small. It was so tight that I am not sure even a 12 would be comfortable. I buy a lot from LE, so maybe this is real-world sizing. Also, the first thing that struck me when I took it out of the box was how heavy it was and that it definitely would not be an item that I would ever take on a trip. I returned it.

I ordered this jacket in black and it is beautiful. It's soft and fits me fairly well. I am top heavy so most of my jackets are too large throughout the waist & hips & require altering. I ordered size 4 and it fit me well throughout the chest & upper body. It's goes perfectly with dress slacks. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I bought this in a size bigger after reading the reviews. It was too big. So I exchanged it for my size and it fit perfectly. I have thinner arms so I had plenty of room. The thing I LOVE about this jacket is the fit. It is not boxy like a lot of the other jackets. It gives you a nice waist and it's a great length. It's a perfect spring jacket.

Great fabric, Great Colour.
Fit was perfect every where except the arms which were strangely tiny in width.

For LE outerwear, I always order a Size S (6-8). Since many reviewers said that this jacket runs small, I ordered an 8R (8P was OOS) in black. The jacket fits perfectly with just enough extra room. I was afraid that the sleeves may be too tight (my upper arms are kind of thick). but there is enough room to wear a long-sleeved t-shirt or light weight sweater. The sleeves are a little long, but folding the cuff up makes them the perfect length. The fabric is nice and has an interesting feel to it.
