I was hesitant to purchase a coat online because having broad shoulders I have a hard time finding a good fit. It turned out that only a large was available, which worked out well (although I am a medium in all other apparel). First, I was impressed by the professional packaging of the coat - on a hanger in a dry-cleaner type bag. It truly feels like silk, and was wrinkle free. There was room for my shoulders without it being baggy elsewhere (the A-line cut is very flattering). With the lining in it was warm but it is not bulky. I could also see another mark of a well made item in the smaller "backer buttons" anchoring the exterior ones. I plan to wear this on a trip to Italy in the Spring, but it will surely be my favorite all-around jacket beyond that. I am 5'5" and it hits me just under the tush, about 1/3 down my thigh #"parka" length#.
