Rated 5 out of 5 by KiWi2 Beautiful Jacket
I have this coat in 3 colors - black, magenta and coral red. I love them and always receive compliments when I wear them. The magenta is beautiful, though I'd call it a dark hot pink. The coral red is more orange than red, and the black is a rich, dark black. Love all of them.
A note about sizing: It took several orders to get the size right. I wear a 10 regular in another boiled wool LE coat that I have, but in this one I ended up buying a petite 12 because the sleeves were so long in the regular (hung almost to my fingernail bases). I never wear petite - I'm 5'7' with fairly long arms. The petite sleeves aren't perfect but are better than the regular.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sweetpeaga Good Blazer Length Dressy Casual Jacket
I own this coat in three colors and technically two sizes. But each color fits differently. What they have in common in sizing is that they all run small, especially through the shoulders. I can only wear a sweater under the one that I ordered two sizes up. The others are fitted, like a blazer. And I wear those with a thermal top and tee shirt layered in the winter.
The wool is very coarse and itchy. So I always wear a scarf with these jackets - even in the fall when I wear cotton and leave the scarf untied. The oldest of the jackets has begun to pick up lint. But it is still warm. And it looks nicer than the puffer style of jacket.
The pockets are only deep enough to hold a glove, silky scarf or car keys. I have considered sewing them closed for a sleeker look.
Due to the length and limited ability to layer, I would recommend this jacket for cold, but not bitterly windy days. It works in the south. But I think it would only be acceptable in colder climates in the fall and spring, or if you are often in cold buildings and need something warmer than a traditional suit jacket.

I purchased the orange color last year and I am still wearing it this year. It's warm and comfortable. I got a size 26 and it's plenty big in the shoulders and front. Buying another color now sine it's on sale.

Finally found a charcoal gray boiled wool jacket in my size - 16W
Fabric is nice and the fit is flattering. The jacket is just shy of perfect.
It needs at least one inside pocket because not all women like to carry a purse.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Brooke123 Pretty but cut wrong
I have never, ever put on a jacket and had it be tight around my upper arms. I can barely get it on over my arms and shoulders. Weird.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jagle This Jacket Makes Me So Happy!
This jacket is just beautiful, it makes me so happy. It is a perfect fit - I am 5'2" and I bought size 6 Petite and it looks like it was made for me. I didn't want to wear thick sweaters underneath and it is a bit tight with a sweater, but perfect with a lighter-weight top. The green is beautiful and brightens up a cold winter's morning. I am making up excuses to go out into the cold so I can put it on again. It slides on beautifully and is nice and warm - it doesn't snow where I live so it is the right thickness - I adore this jacket.

I am 5'10", 175pds, athletic shaped, 38/36D bust, 33" waist, 43" rear. I normally wear 10T in pants, 8L if there's stretch. I purchased the Coral/Orange in LT. The color is much more orange than the picture, but pretty. I was swimming in this so I am ordering MT. The weight feels nice, like it's made for a cool fall/spring night in NYC. The tailoring in the back makes for a nice flat fit.

I ordered this jacket in orange and I love the color! It's bright enough to make it fun but not flashy. The fit is true to size. I can fit a light sweater underneath. It's comfortable buttoned or not. I want to order the green one too!
