Rated 3 out of 5Â by my_belle7 REALLY Wanted to Love This...
Been on the hunt for a high-quality, comfy, cozy, and unique daily-wearer. I LOVE army green & parka style coats. So when I stumbled on to this jacket--& read near every of the 50+ positive reviews...I was sold! Even rushed shipping! But here's the thing...the coat IS gorgeous, well-made, comfortable & unique--it's just TOO unique to be a daily-wearer. The arm detail is just too over the top...as my husband said, "It has a Michael Jackson vibe"...& my mom was on the fence, she thought I should keep it until I told her it was $300...I do appreciate what they were trying to do with the style of this coat, they just missed the mark. Sadly, I am RETURNING. I would totally order this if it was plain, or just slightly embellished...which brings me to my next review: I also ordered the "Crafted Cloth Tapestry Jacket"...and am IN LOVE! It is basically the same jacket structurally but with a more casual, daily-wearer vibe. If you are considering this jacket, but are on the fence, check it out. I'm def keeping it & expect to get TONS of wear out of it.
I ordered my customary S in both coats...yes, they run roomy, but that's the look. The drawstring waist allows you to customize. (5'5", 34C, 130lbs, broad shoulders)

But I really luv the black color. Lots of the reviews like the olive and although its beautiful I took more of a liking to the black. Maybe its because most of my wardrobe is black :) Runs a little big in my opinion. I ordered it in a small because I like my sleeves long. Im 5'6 and of slender build if that helps. There is definitely enough room to wear a sweater without feeling like your a sausage. Well made and the details on the sleeves is stunning. A must purchase!!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by oshun18 Beautiful jacket but issues with details
I have been dreaming about this jacket for a while and decided to splurge and buy it. I initially got M since that is my usual size but it was VERY big. I returned it and got a S and it looks way better while still maintaining the oversized look. So now for the 4 stars....like other reviewers I noticed flaws in the craftsmanship. There are beads missing and some even broken on both sleeves. It's not noticeable from a distance but if I am paying this price I expect the quality to be there. I can live with it and am keeping the jacket since I'm afraid of exchanging it for a jacket with greater defects!

I received my parka today. I ordered it in black. I was afraid the material would be a little to stiff for my taste. I was delighted to find that is is very very soft! The decorations stand out perfectly against a nicely aged looking black. The fit is perfect. Finally sleeves that aren't way to long on me. For my height 5"4" I have long arms. I would order the same jacket in olive, but I have FP's olive parka with the flower decoration on the back, I still love it too. So I will fight the urge to buy the other color. Another great feature is the easy single zipper, no added weight to my front! Fits flat and flattering. Can't wait for cold weather.

Mine arrived today and I loved it out of the bag and even when I tried it on. Ordered my usual size Small and it fit me loose like on the model. However, upon inspecting the details of the coat I discovered that some of the SILVER BEADS on the upper right arm were MISSING and the left arm's GOLD THREAD WAS COMING UP AND OFF. I am very displeased with the quality of the item right out of the bag and it's going straight back. It may be pretty, but it should never have arrived DAMAGED.

This is a very well made jacket! Runs big girls, size down!

I absolutely love this jacket! The embellishment is like nothing you see anywhere else. The jacket is definitely on the larger side but it s obvious that it is supposed to fit that way. It was a tad out of my price range but I have no regrets buying it. I highly recommend it. It is going to be perfect for the Fall-Spring!

when I first saw this, it had already sold out and I so I put my email address in just in case it came back in stock!! I am sooo glad I did...I have wanted this for almost a year and I finally gave in this time and ordered it. What a beautiful jacket and great detailing. The pictures do not do it justice...except the last one . It is a bit oversized but just right...it is a little heavier jacket so it's definitely for cool nights or winter. I have had some issues with FP sizing in the past...but more because I order off the the on line store...this one was right on!! Ordered a medium and I am 5"5 and 140 lbs...and it fits great. It's a keeper!
