Women's Plus Size Luxe Wool Swing Coat
I have gotten so many compliments on this coat! I absolutely love it. It is beautiful on, well made and the red is a very nice shade. I got it on sale so that made the deal even sweeter! I am short (5'2") so I think the length of the sleeves and body are perfect!

A dressier alternative
I was looking for a prettier, dressier alternative to my causal jackets (all LE), and this coat is perfect for that. The wool is soft, the satin lining is silky, and I bought my usual size. The fit was roomy over a tee shirt, but not too big to size down. I'm a 5'4" pear shape, and it is hard to flatter and fit my shoulders and hips, but the swing cut does this well.
Others commented about the sleeve length, which is fine for me, but I could see where it would be short for someone who is tall or has long arms. The open, loose style at the wrist may be a concern, but if you wear gloves when going out in the cold, it will probably not be an issue. I would have preferred a fully stitched sleeve, and if i find the NJ air chills my forearms, it looks like it can be easily altered by stitching the seam closed.
At the sale price, I feel it was a GREAT BUY!

This coat is so gorgeous. The quality is superb and the fit is wonderful. I have short arms so any problems with arm length that others were having were no issue with me. If anything, the sleeves are a tad long, but good enough so I won't need alternations.
I bought the red, which is a lovely color. I put it on and my husband told me, opinion unasked for (which is a miracle): "That's a really nice coat. You look cute." Awwww. That makes this one a keeper. I'd recommend it to anyone, so long as they don't think of themselves as having long arms.

I love this coat. The fit is great, the fabric is wonderful, and the little details make it seem like a much more expensive coat. To me, it's perfect. Okay, so you're probably not going to want to wear this up north when it's really cold and the wind blows up your sleeves, but you need to be wearing something warmer then, anyway. As for the length of the sleeves, I have average arms, and the sleeves are just right on me. The only bad thing is I got it just as winter was ending, and now I have to wait until next year to wear it!

This jacket arrived today and I am very, very pleased. The fabric is exquisite, the cut is very flattering and the garnet color is rich. There have been some negative comments about sleeve length and that might be a problem for someone with long arms. My arms are just about average and the length is just fine. I already have recommended this jacket to others. It's a winner.

PERFECT for everyday outings and evenings
First the fabric is excellent quality and the cashmere adds a softness. Next, I LOVE the Bottle Green color as it's quite versatile with any color slacks for 3 season wear in colder Minnesota temps. Third, excellent detailing with satin lining. I like the shorter length for this Swing Coat. Fifth, the coat is not too heavy as I drive everywhere in this metro area, so I'm not outdoors walking often when I'd really need a heavier coat. Finally, I bought it on sale, so THANKS for a bargain. I've never ordered a Lands' End coat previously and I'm extremely PLEASED with this purchase!

Lovely coat if you have short arms
Only buy this coat if you have really short arms. The sleeves are unacceptably short for me. It's going back. :-(

I just got this yesterday so have not had a chance to wear it but, I tried it on and it fit exactly as expected. I have another swing coat from 2 years ago which I love which is the reason I decided to try this in a red (which is a beautiful red by the way). This new style does have slits on each side at the bottom of the seam which I'm thinking will ease the fit when sitting (which I did not see in the description). I am short (a tad under 5'3") so the sleeves fit me very well. I can see that for a taller person this would be an issue on this coat. I love Lands End and this coat is another great find....especially with the markdown and % discount.

Sleeves too short
I loved the quality and general fit of this coat, but just don't seem to be able to buy any long-sleeved woman's item from Lands End that has long enough sleeves. This coat road up 3 inches on my arm. I hated to send it back, but back it went.

A beautiful, very well-made coat, really nice fabric
This coat runs small, sleeves run short, and I have short arms. The red color is lovely. I normally wear a size 20W, and ordered a 22W and it is a little small, so have ordered a 24W to compare. Definitely worth trying to find the right size. Love the top stitching and the raglan sleeves. Cross fingers on next size up.
