Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jessica_C Oh boy, does it run big!
They weren't kidding when they wrote a notice about this running huge! For comparison there's the Golden Quills parka-a popular jacket on this site, that runs pretty big, well this one is even bigger! I'm a small girl, only 100 pounds and there's absolutely no way I'll be able to pull this off, it downright swallowed me. A real shame since I like the style a lot. If you're normally a M or above then you'll fit into an XS, anyone smaller than that will need to get it tailored. Can't make a definite judgment on the quality since it was impossible for me to wear it but based on first impressions it's ok.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by amy21 Great BIG coat
Loving this! Bought recently, this coat is great, it's so warm, very roomy, vey 60's and can be worn over top of big sweaters, layered up, and looks awesome with boots. However- when they say 'extremely oversized silhouette' they mean it, I bought this in a small, and I love the oversized style, but if you're wanting a more fitted look, definitely size down one or two sizes. Overall a great buy.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by cece31 Better in theory
I tried this coat on in red in the store. The fabric felt thick and nice, and I liked the big hood. Once it was on, though, it was just a no. I'm 5'10 and 127 lbs and the Small was huge. I knew if I went down to an XS the sleeves would have been too short, but I honestly think the proportions are just a bit off. It's incredibly wideâthere's a ton of fabricâand I didn't like the way it looked cinched with the drawstring ties in front. I thought it looked cuter just open or with the button across the front, but that wouldn't have been that practical and I was definitely still swimming in it. I like this style in theory but the execution is just off.

I fell in love with this coat online and was thrilled when FP Paramus had it in stock. Based on the description online and the reviews I wanted to try it on in person. Oh boy does this baby run BIG! I ended up going with a S. It is a stunning jacket and I can't wait for it to be cool enough to wear. It's not super heavy but it feels pretty warm and you have room to layer without feeling like the stay puft marshmallow man :) I have another roomy FP cargo jacket from a couple seasons ago that is an 8 and I would say this coat in a S is just a touch larger. I typically wear a M or L in FP depending on the fit. For reference: 5"11 36D / 28" waist / 40" hips / 159lb.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ErinAlicia Comfy cozy staple for winter
This is one of those great FP pieces that the website doesn't do justice and you have to see in stores to appreciate the quality and design. Yes, it's oversized. But at 5'1" and petite, the XS works even on me. I just rolled up the sleeves one cuff (which shows the nice lining underneath) and voile. It's roomy enough for those oversized winter sweaters and for Free People, the price is actually pretty reasonable for something as often-worn as a coat. I'll be wearing this all season long.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by bcadalzo Never want to take this off!!
Holy moly this jacket surprised me! I didn't think it looked like anything special online but I saw it in the store today and it's SO CUTE! The fabric is also way softer than it appears. This jacket makes you feel like you're wearing your favorite tee as a warm, fuzzy blanket. It's also way more flattering than it appears online. Like every other reviewer has said, the coat does run pretty big and is clearly oversized but it's oversized in a really adorable way. I'm 5'6" and 125lb and I love the fit of the XS. Both colors are absolutely gorgeous in person and I had such a hard time deciding between them but ended up taking home the crimson. All in all, absolutely love this coat and would 100% recommend! I can't wait to wear it in the fall.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by K-K Awesome coat if you go down a size
This coat is fabulous. The style is great and it's so comfortable! But listen to the recommendation and size down - I typically wear a Medium or Large in FP and the Small fit perfectly in this. The Medium looked like an oversized men's jacket on me.

When I saw this coat, I immediately wanted it. I waited a day because I hate impulse buying, but then decided to buy it and I'm so glad I did! It's absolutely gorgeous. It is very oversized, but I like my clothes to fit me that way. I also hate the cold, so this looked like the perfect big, warm, blanket-like coat I could wrap up in this winter. I am 34-28-39, 5'8", and I usually wear a small in Free People. I sized down and bought the XS, and it is very roomy, but I love the way it looks. Also, the quality seems excellent! It is so soft, and I was pleasantly surprised at how heavy it was when I took it out of the bag. To me, the price seems low for how nice this is (although I'm not complaining!), but I could see paying way more for this coat. I purchased the crimson color, and it looks exactly as it does online. I'm beyond thrilled with this purchase, and would highly recommend this coat, if you like oversized pieces.
