faux fur love
this is such a cute outer layer! i have other fur vests, but this one has the perfect length and the hood makes it extra cute, it's actually really versatile. it's also really warm, and has a surprisingly flattering silhouette. the only down side is that the wool lining is extremely scratchy, so it'd work best worn over a thicker layer with collars.
Perfect Winter Staple
I am a big fan of this one! Now...I am not a huge fan of faux fur, but this piece is really nice! Also, this is not a Free people brand item, this is made by 6 Shore Road, whom I am familiar with and know that their line tends to run a little on the snug side. But since this was an outwear item I decided to give it a try. I am 5'4", 180lbs, 36C and usually wear a Large or a Medium in outwear, depends on the fit that I want. I got this in both a Medium and a Large to try. The Large, my true size, definitely fit like it does on the model...it was a little big, the fur had a nice full look, but since I am short I felt that I looked like I was being engulfed by a faux animal, and the hood kinda swallowed my head. The Large just didn't fit my height good...it went down to the bottom of my butt. I also was ALMOST able to zip it, but like I mentioned above, 6 Shore Road items run smaller. The Medium I thought was perfect! It was a little more snug, didn't look like I was being swallowed by faux fur, the hood lined my head better, and it hit the lines on my body better...it just covered the top of my butt. I am definitely not able to zip the Medium, it's about 1.5-2 inches away from being able to close and zip...which is fine, I live in Southern California, so it's more of a statement piece than to keep me warn. But...it is a warm vest, definitely on the thicker side, lined with gray fabric, moves great, the fur is VERY soft and the coloring is great, just like the pictures! And I did not have any issue with a weird point at the top of the hood like another reviewer mentions. This is very well made. I don't think the price is too bad for this, but I was able to score this when Free People was doing a 25% off deal, so it made this much more worth it. This will definitely not be returned, I am keeping the Medium. I've gotten great compliments, everyone wants to touch it and calls it a polar bear. Hah!
I really wanted to like it
The "william wallace" thing actually sounded good to me... but to me it was more ewok. not flattering, cute, or even badass ..as i was hoping. Agree the hood looks silly, and the fur gets stuck in the zipper. fur also looks cheaper in person. Looks like something a child would wear as a costume. a big swing and a miss :/
I agree...VERY Will Wallace!
I was just obsessed with this vest. I was right to wait until I could actually try it on before ordering. I felt really silly in it. The hood is so pointy that I took it off immediately. I think the hood looks great when it's not on your head. :/ The actual vest part is flattering imo. It's made really well but the weird hood was the deal breaker for sure. I felt like a fuzzy little elf.
Feeling a little William Wallace
I'm not sure how I feel about this vest. I will say that I like it reversed better (the wool is quilted, but it's barely noticeable). The furry hood looks a little silly drawn up, but when it's reversed, it looks normal. Furry side out, the vest makes me feel like a fluffy cow -- reversed, it seems to be the right shape. The materials do seem to be of relatively high quality. The faux fur is fairly soft and the wool... is the normal texture you'd expect from wool outerwear. Not exactly soft, but you won't feel it on your skin with normal use. I'm not sure what I want to do with this vest but at the price point, I do feel I should be in love with it. Maybe i just haven't found the right outfit to pair it with, but I'm not feeling "luxurious" when I wear it. I'm feeling a little William Wallace, which is not exactly glamorous.
I can't express how happy I was to see a hooded fur vest this year from Free People! I've been on the lookout for one for years. High quality, and exactly as pictured, with the exception of the interior - it says that it is "quilted" but it is just a flat wool blend (which I actually like better). This runs roomy like previous fur vests from FP. I am 5'4", 125 lbs and a 32C and this fits perfectly (snug at the hips when zipped though). I cannot wait for cooler weather. Don't miss this one!
