Style: 37042660 Colour:
Boiled wool maxi sweater jacket, collarless with a striped pattern. Single button closure and hip pockets. So-soft cotton lining.
I found the sleeves to be very tight and the waist to be much broader than it looks in the photo. I am 5' 6" tall, long limed and pretty skinny. Normally size XS is a bit big on me. This suggests that the sleeves are not cut properly. They have stretched a little with wear but are still not right. I decided to keep the coat as I like the material a lot and it is nice and warm, but I would not recommend getting it.
MUST BE ME
LOL - I read the reviews and I must say I am very jealous. I looked terrible in this coat. I am 5 ft. tall wear a 00 and the arms were too tight while the rest was too big. ? Maybe good for a tall person... I was so disappointed I didn't look like the model. LOL I do not include a photo out of charity....
Visually it is a really beautiful coat, and very well made. There is a soft liner inside that adds to coziness and comfort. Only downside was the fit. I am 5'7 110 lbs and the coat was tight in my arms, but loose all throughout. The hip area bowed out too much for it too look nice on me. I bet this coat would look great on someone who had larger hips, but I am a 24 in pants and it just looked silly on me. Perhaps just this coat in particular was warped in some way. I wish that it would have worked for me!
Gorgeous, unique and warm!
It is pieces like this that keep me coming back to Free People to purchase. It truly is eye catching with its Merlot/Plum accents offsetting the Taupe. Though it is wool I am pleased that the liner is a soft cotton fabric so it is not itchy whatsoever. And the liner is both on the body and inside the arms. The exterior of the garment which is wool is super soft and not at all like some other wools which can feel scratchy, probably because of the added acrylic and linen (84% is wool). I am a size 4/6 and 5'6" tall so I went with my usual size Small and it fits perfectly with a lite layer underneath. It does not look like a 'grandpa' sweatercoat because the design is tailored at the shoulder; not dropped shoulders. The garment is of the highest quality and that unique that it does justify the price factor. This was a birthday gift from my husband and I rather have this one item than a number of average looking, average quality pieces.
