ASYMMETRICAL KNIT TRIMMED WOOL BLEND COAT
Gorgeous, But Shoulders Too Tight/Small
Beautiful coat, but runs too small through the shoulders. I'm curvy athletic 5'7", 36D, long arms, broad shoulders. The coat fit perfectly (zipped and unzipped) everywhere especially through the waist, except for the shoulders. I hope to try a large if they come back in stock. I saw the reviews but was hoping it would work because often times the jacket will be too big through the midsection if I go up to fit the shoulders. Good luck!

Not what it seems
This jacket looks super cute, but the sides of the body and sleeves are more the material of a thick sock and wouldn't really keep you warm in the winter. Maybe as a cute fall jacket though, you definitely need to try this one on before deciding.

I went to try this coat on in store since the reviews were very mixed. I ended up having to order it online from the store since they did not have the color I wanted. I found the arms on this coat fit me fine but I can see it being a problem if you have bigger arms. I was fine getting my normal size med. This coat is very fitted. I love how it felt like it was tailored just to fit my body when trying it on. For reference I am 5'8 1/2, 36D, 167lbs

Great Classic Coat
I really like that this coat has a zipper and not buttons. Also the asymmetrical look adds a nice twist on the classic peacoat look. I'm 5'2" and 100lbs and the XS fit perfect. If anything it's on the snug side, since it's very form fitting, but I still have enough room to move around in. I could see the sleeves and/or shoulders being tight on some people, so you may want to go one size up if you plan on layering. The Royal Blue and Red colors are pretty and eye-catching, but I ended up getting Black since it's a classic color.

Great winter coat
Was really unsure which size to pick based off of the reviews. I'm 5'2 and 135 lbs, and usually wear a small at Express. I bought a winter coat here 2 years ago and it was a medium, which is now way too big. However, I bought a jacket recently in a small which is a bit too tight. I have a friend who bought this coat in XS but she's only about 10 lbs lighter than me and same height. So I was really confused as to which size I should buy. I went with the medium just to be safe and think it fits well. There's a bit of extra room and it could be a little smaller, but I have a feeling the small would just be TOO small. Because you tie the belt and don't have to worry about belt holes, it doesn't matter if it's slightly too large. At least you can wear heavy winter clothes with it. I agree that the sleeves run a bit tight, because the rest of the coat could be taken in about an inch but I think the sleeves fit perfectly. All in all, I would recommend trying this on before purchasing. Although I'm happy with my medium, I'd like to see how the small fits.
Sizing aside, I got it in the Camel and love it. It's a rich color and the quality is nice. It's warm and comfortable and very flattering. I haven't seen any other colors in person aside from the Olive Green, which I almost got and is really nice as well. So many winter coats that all look the same - this is a nice change of pace.
