I just purchased this jacket. I was surprised to find tat it was covered in long white thread like fringe and it was MUCH longer and bigger than anticipated . Instead of sending it back, I trimmed off most of the threads and took the belt off the bottom and wrapped it around the waist. It's still a bit big but I kinda like it like that. So, if you are small like me, 5'3 115 lbs. buy an xs.
