Rated 5 out of 5Â by AJCullen FINALLY!!!
I had this pre-ordered forever before it shipped, but I have finally recieved it and FINALLY a Free People Jacket (coat really, it is very heavy and warm) that will stand the test of time without losing embellishments or significantly different than pictured.
This item is just as pictured, and yes, IT IS LINED WITH SHERPA THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BODY! The sleeves are lined in another material. The sleeves have heavy embroidery, good quality zipper that glides up and down covered by snap buttons that have a matching design on the metal snaps that the embroidery has.
I am a size Small in Free People and the size Small in this fits me just as I expected, over size body but perfect in the shoulders and arm length. The arms on the stock photo model make the sleeves look tight, but they are not. They are like the sleeves in the catalog photo (they may have pinned the sleeves back in the stock photo). I'm glad the sleeves are relaxed because I will be able to add layers in extreme weather... not that this coat isn't warm enough on it's own; it's a very heavy coat.
I LOVE IT! FINALLY A FREE PEOPLE COAT THAT IS TRUELY WORTH 5 STARS.
*Keep in mind when ordering that this coat is supposed to be fantastically oversized, so if you want it more fitted order a size down.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by FPMakayla A PERFECT JACKET!!!
I have so many jackets, but none of them can compare to the quality and coziness of this one. I love how long it is. As soon as I tried it on, I could feel my body getting warmer. It is perfect for cold weather. Luckily, I woke up to snow the day after I received it in the mail, so I was so happy to get to wear it right away! :) But let me warn you, get ready for TONS OF COMPLIMENTS. This is by far my favorite winter jacket. I'm in love. I say stick to your true size. I'm normally an xs in FP and it fit just right. A bit oversized, but perfect length in the shoulders and arms.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by lubella The coolest coat on earth
Just got this in the mail and it's amazing. Hands down one of the coolest coats I've ever owned. Even though it's a big coat, it's tailored in a way that sintches the waist a bit and drapes perfectly. The collar is cool and oversized, and I found the sleeves to fit perfectly (and I have big arms). The detail on the sleeves make the coat. It's warm and totally one of a kind. Can't wait to wear it out :)

This coat is simply beautiful - such a cool and unique take on a winter staple! While the coat does run a little large, it is perfect for layering and true winter dressing for the elements.
I love that each of the coats is different - with one of a kind fading. Furthermore, the lining is throughout the coat (not just for show) so it is warm, cozy and fabulous.
I do, however, have one LARGE criticism given the price point - as the embroidery on the sleeves has already started to pill and pull. Some of the threads were even loose when it arrived from Free People! I have not washed the coat yet and have worn it with great care. I received the coat as a Christmas gift and feel as though my expectations for quality are not being met.
Beautiful coat - stylish and unique - but I question whether it will hold up over the long haul (I had hoped to have this coat for YEARS).

This parka is definitely a keeper. Very cozy and warm. beautiful embroidery. I am a small in FP and ended up going with an XS which fits great. Very happy with this coat!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by FPlovely Unique, beautiful jacket!
This jacket is amazing, love the denim, sherpa and embroidery combination! I am 5'8, 140lbs and usually a medium in FP. Because of the reviews, I ordered both the small and medium to compare the fits. The biggest difference for me was how the body of the jacket looked and fit. The small gave me some shape and fit how the jacket looks in the pictures. The body on the medium was baggy and kind of shapeless on me. I love the oversized look on small people though so if you're petite you should still get this jacket in XS or S depending on the look you're going for! I am keeping the small because I think the fit is more flattering for me personally. I can still fit a pretty heavy winter sweater underneath, which makes it a multi-season jacket! (At least in Colorado!) With a sweater, I've worn it in 10 degree weather. Without a sweater, I've stayed warm in 30 degree weather. I love it and wear it almost daily!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by apearson Big but still nice
I read all the reviews before buying and decided to take the leap in spite of the oversize cautions.
The oversize and fit don't bother me a bit except you really can't wear a heavy sweater underneath because the arms ARE fitted... so I wouldn't call this a "below zero" coat because that nice lining that you see at the collar is not in the sleeves.
What i didn't like was that the picture shows the denim color a much brighter blue...not the case...
Also, that nice rounded longer back shown in picture 2... another misrepresentation... the back is straight across. (I read both of those things in earlier reviews and still purchased it.)
I simply wanted to reinforce the point that the pictures of this coat are not accurate.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by stephyrm123 was hesitant to buy, but i love it!
i was looking forward to this years edition of the denim parka after missing out on last year's version and when it came out i was a little disappointed, but saw some pics of people wearing it and was sold that i needed it! it is VERY VERY loose! i am normally an xs in fp and got an xs and its still extremely roomy. if youre larger, maybe try a size down if u dont want it as roomy? i do love it tho! its so warm and adorable!! it reaches to about my knees and i am 5'4. you can layer almost anything under and still look cute. very petitie people though, beware buying it! you might look overwhelmed by the size of this.
