Rated 5 out of 5Â by Katiebau Amazing and true to size
As you know by now with all the other reviews this is an incredibly gorgeous coat. Sadly my usual xs was sold out. But loving this jacket so much a bought the small with the intention of getting it adjusted based on other reviews. I was worried that it would look ridiculously big on me, not just oversized as some of the other reviewers has stated. I was wrong! It is not swimming on me, and It is perfectly oversized- couldn't be happier. So if you concerned about the size, don't be, it's perfect.

This coat is extremely beautiful in person. It glistens in the sunshine! Very unique and stunning. A head-turner. Detail is gorgeous. Very roomy- perfect for your FP swaters underneath without feeling bulky! Great for fall, winter, and spring! Love this coat!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jessica_C unique and awesome
as it's shown in the pictures this parka runs HUGE! so people shouldn't give negative reviews because of that. anyway as far as fitting goes, there's only an inch difference between the bust of the small and xs, i am a true xs but had to order small because the xs was sold out and i wanted this item badly. the drawstrings on the sides prevented it from looking like a potato sack on me, the arms are super long they end at my fingers (and i have pretty long arms). despite the way it fits, this jacket is so awesome, military style parkas are in style now and thanks to free people mine will stand out!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by vfj One of my best FP purchases...if not the best.
Absolutely love this jacket and it looks even better in person. Ordered my usual FP small and it fits perfectly. I pretty much fell in love with this jacket as soon as I saw it, but unfortunately the first time I saw it was after it had initially sold out online. I eyed it for a while on an auction site, but I wasn't willing to drop like $500 for it. So, having said that, as soon as I saw it available online again I immediately bought it. I am so happy I did as it is my new favorite jacket and it will be worn to death. The detailing is fantastic and it truly is like nothing else I've ever seen.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by FPGigi Probably THE Coolest Thing You Can Buy
The best thing about Free People is their originality and craftsmanship; this coat epitomizes those characteristics AND is actually useful. It is such a gorgeous piece and if you're on the fence about it, don't be because you'll absolutely get your money's worth. This jacket never fails to get attention and compliments and sometimes it's just really cool seeing people who could not care less about fashion remark on its unique design and overall radness. It's nearly as heavy as a denim jacket and will provide about the same amount of warmth. It is very over-sized, like most of Free People's products. Your best bet is to buy true to your size because it's designed to be an exaggerated XS, S, M, etc. I wear an XS and am 5'9" (long arms and such) and I got an XS in this coat with no problems in arm length or any sort of constraint in the shoulders. There is a comfortable amount of room to layer a sweater over other thin, long sleeve layers within the coat because of its over-sized fit. Such a good investment, and an even better way to visibly maintain your style even in the dark winter months that require numerous layers just to survive! I would write a haiku about this jacket if I could, it's just that cool.
p.s. SUPER easy to dress up or down. Too fun to only wear on certain occasions!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by free person Too Large
I had been eyeing this coat since it was highlighted in the Free People catalog, so I finally decided to order one. After delivery, I immediately tried it on, only to discover that it runs HUGE! I ordered a size small but this coat fit more like a large, including sleeves that dangled past my fingertips. (For reference, I typically wear a small or medium in Free People clothing, being approx.a US size 6.) I felt like I was wearing a potato sack cinched at the waist. I certainly can understand how other customers found this coat to be so appealing since the detailing is eye-catching. However, this piece didn't work out for me; I felt like a little girl in her mama's coat.

I fell in love with the golden quills military the second I saw it and I just had to have it! I am a complete sucker and do love an unusual item in my waldrobe...I confess Im a bit of a unique item collector...but seriously this jacket truely is gorgeous!!!
Everytime I wear this jacket I get compliments...even from the most random strangers...its a great feel good factor to recieve so many compliments!
Its a great fit - I am 6 foot tall, so I went for a Large, which has given me plenty of room...Being so tall and having long arms, it has great length to the sleeves and good length in the body too for somebody as tall as myself. A drawcord waist so you can bring it in to adjust, which also gives this jacket great shape. The hood is a decent size, helps if you have a lot of hair to hide from the weather and covers your face if you get caught out in the rain!
I was slightly worried that the detailing on this jacket would be delicate and that it would have to be an item you wear carefully, but it surprised me and is very well made indeed! Its not at all delicate and you dont have to worry when wearing it at all. Infact, when this jacket arrived in the post, I fell even more in love with it as the detailing was even more beautiful than in the pictures! Also, the colouring of the coat was even more gorgeous as there is a lovely olive undertone which you cant really see in the pictures too. The jacket has a slight mottled effect, which reminds me of looking at the dappled effect you get at the bottom of a swimming pool from the water ripples.
Anyone who is lucky enough to have got their hands on this jacket will agree with me and anyone who hasnt yet will not be dissapointed in any way - its a must have!!!

I ordered the Medium. I sent it back. It was like an extra large. The sizes are off the wall. Its too bad, I liked the sleeve detail.I gave it a one star not for style, but for the product information.
