Women's Double Face Jacket
This is a wonderful jacket
Bought for my mom as a Christmas gift. For reference got Reg, size 4, taupe color. It's true to size and just beautiful. The cut and style are classy, and the 80% wool makes it toasty warm, but not unbearably hot for run-around town errands. Mom loves the extra touches; a nice hood on back, big, easy buttons on front, and roomy pockets to stash keys, cell phone, etc, if you're taking a walk. Great sale price, too. This jacket is a winner all-around.

a little bit boxy, but goes together well with other LE pieces
First, I am tall (5'8") and I found that this jacket was a bit too short to be ideal. Second, it is not reversible, and is a little bit boxy. Okay, those are the minuses. The pluses are many -- I got the light blue, and it is a beautiful color. The wool is really lovely, soft and substantial. the plaid lining is also very pretty. But I was happiest with the jacket because I had bought a cream/camel/light blue/navy pima cardi and matching oversize scarf, and they go just beautifully with this jacket, as do the light blue-grey cords. PUtting these pieces together makes me realize how much effort LE puts into its color ranges and how, with a little time spent agonizing over the catalogue, you can get a really nice couple of outfits out of coordinating pieces.

Very expensive looking, great but with Friends & Family discount.
True to size. I am 5'4", 114 lbs, first bought size reg 6, too big, size 4 reg. perfect. Very very expensive looking. What a great deal! Friends & Family discount - what a bargain. Also bought Lt Blue, beautiful! Will never go out of style.

Buy it for the color Atmosphere
This was one of the few jackets/coats offered in the color "atmosphere", new this year at Lands End. The color is what made me choose it. This item runs small. Lands End shoppers know it is traditional to generous sizing. For example. I am med build, 5' 2" 36" bust, 110 lbs. This little coat in a 2P, I could barely button. That size on an average day, has no danger of being small on me. Not reversible but easily worn inside-out. 40 degree min. temp. This is by no means a winter coat. I look ghastly in all but the most sophisticated of blues. The buttons were a bit loose, it's pricey perhaps, but the color and weight were out of this world. I did not reorder because I have many light-med weight coats. I shop too much to justify another.

Jacket fabric is scratchy.
Wool is scratchy and not a nice fabric. Size is true. Appears to be well made, but you have to wear something under the jacket or it itches and is uncomfortable.

Beautiful Navy Jacket
This is my second purchase in this style. I like the light weight casual style. It is very comfortable but not too warm for the foot hills climate. I can easily layer under this jacket. The workmanship is beautiful and compliments most colors. I am considering purchasing the 3rd color since it is available on sale.
