Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPLuver Almost complete perfection
I love this coat. The material is a wonderful sweatshirt-type material that can be easily dressed up or down, the taupe exterior with the grey stripe interior is beautiful, and it is machine washable. However, I think it would have been more flattering 2-3" shorter (I'm 5'6") and there is too much material on the lower half. I wish I'd ordered both the medium and large, but I think the medium would have been too tight in the chest (34DD or 36D). I want to be able to wear at least a light sweater under it without the buttons pulling. I really wish Free People would make some effort to provide a complete inventory in a major metropolitan area. I live just outside of Chicago with 4 stores within about 15 miles of me. You can't spread your inventory among these 4 stores?

Love at first site. It arrived and it was on me in a nanosecond. The fabric is so soft, the tayloring is superb (minus the pockets being a half mile back - my only complaint). This really is the perfect spring or fall coat and the way it swings and swishes as you walk is delightful. It is well worth the money.

I love this coat, its so comfortable and cool looking. I have never worn something that women stop me and tell me how they love my coat. This coat is warm and looks great with everything. You could not wear a thick sweater under it as the sleeves are too tight if you layer to much. I have worn a fitting top and and thin sweater under it.
I wish this was also in Black I would get another one in black in a second.

I live in Canada, where the coat will be perfect! We have an awesome FB store here in Calgary, where the salesperson Jen will pull out things as suggestions for me since I shop in there so frequently! As soon as I saw the coat, it was love at first site. I have many of the ruffled skirts that the coat will go over beautifully before the snow sets in. Thank you FB !

I love wearing it with maxi skirts--it makes me feel feminine in a distinguished (not frumpy) yet beautifully understated way. It somehow seems to go with every piece of wardrobe I own. It is well made and flows beautifully. The only drawback is that the pockets are too bar back, so it is difficult to reach for the,. Other than that, it is an awesome piece. I'm glad I bought it.

I received this as a Christmas present and love it! I'm 5'3" at 135 lbs and it's easy to feel a tad dumpy. I got a size small and it is perfect! In this coat, I feel and look amazing! I agree with a recent review that the fabric color is greenish and gray combined. It's gorgeous. People come up to me and compliment me on the coat all of the time. It's very feminine and cool at the same time! I tend to wear heels with it and it flows when I walk. It's very special and well worth the price.

As of the 22nd of Jan 2014, they're sending out the green & grey mix colour I see in the pictures. Called "latte".
When I ordered this jacket I didn't know what colour to expect. After thinking about it obsessively I decided it must be coming in a beige colour given all the other reviewers saying it was a different colour and the style pics being beige AND the colour being listed as "latte" which makes me think light brown.
I decided either way I would be happy with the coat because it would look good in either colour.
It came in the green-y colour I see in the pics now. It's slightly more dull than the photographs would suggest. I suppose the saturation has been played with a bit. But still amazing! I would personally size down to XS (from S) if I could re order, as it's a bit roomy. It all depends on what you plan to have under it. I would prefer it very tight fitting like what it looks like on the model, and I believe an XS would have gotten me there. I'm 172cm (5'8) and skinny and curvy! Usually a S or XS, although I'm getting the feeling I'm usually an XS in FP clothing.

I finally broke down and bought this coat after eyeing it for months. I must say that it was a good decision - I love this coat! So comfortable and feminine! I could swing around all day in this thing as well as feel all snuggled up as it is that comfortable! I do agree with the other reviews in that the pockets could be closer to the front instead of a mile back but overall, this coat is THE BOMB!
