not good in the rain
First off, I'm not sure the other reviewers and I are reviewing the same coat. I didn't find it large at all. In fact, the large is a perfect fit on my petite, 5'3" currently 154 pounds frame. In fact, if you run larger than my measurements weight wise, or have a measurement in the bust area greater than 34F (40 inches in the bust area otherwise) I can't recommend this coat at all. I'm very glad I waited to review it until I had worn it a few times, including wearing it to work during a much needed rainstorm. The detailing did not take well to water at all. And this was a fairly light rainstorm - it doesn't snow here in SoCal and rarely do we see hail. I've attached a picture of the damage to the detailing. Its still a beautiful coat, but one would expect the detailing on a coat to be able to withstand the elements, given most people don't wear coats unless it's cold outside or it is raining, hailing, or snowing. I give it three stars - it is perfect fit-wise, and very flattering, but I was disappointed to see the details bubbling after wearing it in the rain. I've attached a picture so others can see what I mean.

Love this coat
A note about the fit: It definitely runs large, especially in the chest area and in the sleeves, but I think the sizing is accurate for the double belt at the waist. I'm 5'6", 135lbs and ordered a medium. Overall I'm very happy with it, I like the heavy canvas and it feels durable. A fine coat for adventures.
I am heartbroken. I just got this coat, and it is amazing, however, it is to narrow in the shoulders for me, and the rest of it is just to much coat! I am 5'4", just not elegant enough for this piece.? I will hate returning it! Another FP success, just not for me!!!!
This coat arrived today and it looks amazing on. I can imagine that it would not work well on someone shorter though as I am 5'11". I ordered the M and it was quite roomy, with a little stretch and as I am quite broad shouldered and a 38C it would probably run large on a smaller chested person, so I would size down. It is perfect for the current spring/summer weather as Ireland does tend to get cold and windy when the sun is not out and will be perfect for the showers we are often subjected to.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT
Reading the reviews definitely helped me make the decision on the size so... Thanks! I would normally get a medium but in this case I got a small and it fits perfectly. The first pic shows the coat with light detailing. That is not the way it looks. If you check out the rest of the pix you will see how the coat actually looks. The coat is GREAT. It fits GREAT. I love the collar, the way the coat hangs, the style... Yeah... I recommend it. xox
More black than indigo
I was very disappointed with the color which was more black than blue. Due to that dark color the detail of the embroidery was not visible. Since I had purchased the coat because of the detail, I decided to return it. At first I thought that I was sent the wrong coat; the coloring was so different from the picture.
great design, color darker than in photo
The coat has a classic Victorian look to it and fits pretty true to size; it is a bit long in the back like the other reviewer described, but not on the floor or anything. My only issue with it is that the color is much darker than even the second model pic in the photo, more like a navy blue color as opposed to indigo. The dark shade of blue masks some of the detailing in the shoulders and arms. That being said, it is very versatile; can be work dressed up or down and the fabric is of a thick, cotton quality so it will be warm in addition to stylish.
Definitely Runs Large!
This is a beautiful coat. The shape and detailing of the coat is quite lovely but it definitely runs large. I am usually an xs or small, but in coats I like to have room for sweaters and layering so I usually buy coats in small. This fit more like a large. I am going to order an xs because I love it but I am worried that an xs will still be too large and I will have to return it as well.
I love the materials and detailing on this coat--everything is very high quality. I'm usually exactly a medium, but size M was huge on me--the shoulders and sleeves were very loose, and the back hem was practically at my ankles (I'm 5'5"). So, not exactly the sleek silhouette I was drawn to in the catalog photo. I still love the design and feel of the coat though, so I will be returning for a small.
