Women's Luxe Wool Walker Coat
Fabulous Coat, But Fits Small-Doesn't follow LE sizing chart!
Purchased this coat of my Mom who is generally a LE Petite M. This coat runs very SMALL. We are now trying size 12 regular & petite. Fabulous softness. Styling wonderful, but must have been cut too small. This coat does not follow your usual LE sizing chart. We were fortunate to still get her choice of color in her size. I can see why smaller sizes are still available and the larger sizes are selling out!!

Received the Walker Coat today. Utterly fabulous and very chic. Material is very soft, well constructed and looks tons more expensive than it is. I purchased it in the Indonesian teal which is a superb rich color. I love the stand up collar with the option of folding it down. The only caveat being that the coat runs very small as most of the reviews clearly stated. I am usually a LE dress size of 4/6 depending on the cut of the dress. Wisely, I chose to size up to a Petite 8 in the coat and honestly it fits like a dream, however, I am not sure if I can fit any bulky sweaters underneath it. I certainly can understand why it was advised to size up and even two sizes up depending on your body shape and type. I am small boned and boyish in shape this straighter style works well for me. I am 5.2 and weigh 120 lbs. If you are curvy or pear shaped this coat may not be for you. Thanks LE for a wonderful addition to my coat wardrobe!

Gorgeous, lightweight coat! Has a feminine, fitted flare to it. My only caution would be that it is really snug. I ordered my normal size 4 and I can't fit anything more than a form-fitted turtleneck under it. So my recommendation is that if you intend to wear heavy, bulky sweaters underneath, order up a size, but great for fall when you don't need too many layers! I wish I had order more colors before they sold out.

A beautiful coat
This is a lovely coat. SIze 8 fits me perfectly - 5'6 - 128 lb. - a couple of inches above the knee, room for a light sweater underneath. The boysenberry is gorgeous. It arrived nicely packaged and in great condition. I won't be wearing it for a few months:) but what a deal at the sale price! I now own 3 of the Landsend Luxe wool coats! and.. Landsends customer service is great.

This coat fits like it was custom tailored for me and the plush wool blend kept me toasty warm in the coldest weather. I purchasd the navy and am beyond pleased with the quality and classic styling of this coat I'm certain I will enjoy it for many years to come. BEST COAT EVER!

Perfect and soft
I bought this beautiful, well-constructed, mid-weight coat in Navy for my daughter. It is soft (has some cashmere in it) and good enough for temperature of in 30's or colder. It comes right above her knee (as she is 5'4") in Regular size, not like shown in the picture. It fits her like if it was custom made for her. Color is true to form and the design is very classic which she can wear it for a long time. As a matter of fact, it looks better in person than in the picture. Totally recommend to those who want a timeless, finely crafted warm coat.

Soft, warm coat with true sizing
I have only had this coat for about one week, but I love it and constantly receive compliments on it! It feels wonderful--soft and warm. And the color (burnt orange) is beautiful. After reading other reviews, I was hesitant that it wasn't warm enough. However, in Tennessee, I don't have much of a need for a heavy "stand-out-in-the-cold-all-day" coat. This is the ideal weight to for our average Tennessee winter weather. Over the past several days, windchills have been below 0, and I am comfortable walking several blocks in this coat. Additionally, other reviews seem to indicate that sizing is an issue. It was not an issue at all for me. I am 5'2", 115 lb and typically wear a 2-4 (XS petite). Based on the reviews, I ordered a 4 petite, and it fits nicely, but a 2 would also have fit. From the pictures, you can tell this is a fitted coat; if you are needing to wear a sweatshirt with layers, or something very bulky under your coat, this coat might well not fit. But if you typically wear fitted clothing, feel confident that you can order your "true" Lands End size. I have worn a button-down and cable knit sweater under this coat with no problems! I did purchase it on sale (maybe 30% off of the original price); at the sale price, this is a tremendous value. The coat will last for years and is very well made; I've recommended it to everyone who has complimented me on it!
