Mandarin Collar Boiled-Wool Coat
nice coat but priced to high
This item appeared darker in color in the catalog which is why I ordered it
I loved the style, but for the price I thought it would be a heavier coat.
I considered keeping it even though the color was off. but I just didn't see paying that price for it.

Disappointed; previous jacket purchases better.
This is my 3rd Mandarin Collar Boiled Wool Jacket I purchased. All in the same size.
The 1st I was very satisfied with. The second; not as good but was satisfactory. This latest purchase while I am keeping it, I was disappointed with it. The quality of the fabric is not as good as the other two and the cut is skimpy. Also I prefer the metal buttons to the plastic ones.

Like the length and button detail
This is a great looking coat...fits well, very good value! In fact, a friend rushed home to order one just like it when I wore it to a lunch meeting with her!

Attractive addition to any wardrobe
A good buy on sale. Overpriced for quality at original price. It looks well on and overall I am pleased, although the wool is somewhat scratchy, not the softness i expect from boiled wool items.

Ideal for mild winter weather
I love this coat. The fit was perfect (XLP), and very flattering. It was good to find a coat where the sleeves sat at the shoulder line and did not need shortening. The fabric was dense and heavy, so it is a good weight for our milder winter weather here in the Pacific NW. It is long enough to cover my behind and works equally well with skirts and pants. I like the chocolate color and wish it was available in other lighter shades. Highly recommended.

This makes a great extra layer, indoors or out. The side slits and soft fabric provide comfort and easy movement. Cuffs can be rolled back for a perfect sleeve-length fit.

boiled wool coat
this coat is attractive and warm. It is a bit scratchy around the neck and the weave tends to catch a bit. I have only worn it twice so I don't know how well it will wear. Pretty true to size.

This product was immediately returned
I bought two of these coats two years ago and loved them, even taking one to Alaska on vacation. After losing weight, I bought another this year and sent it right back. Not only was it shorter than the previous version, but it was MUCH lighter weight and the size ran small. I was so disappointed with the quality of this coat and would buy several if I could find the same item from two years ago. This might be acceptable for a spring coat, but not a winter coat as used to be available.
