Wool Swing Coat
Could be a great coat.
I selected this coat because it was advertised as having raglan sleeves, which allows for freedom of movement. Not so. Way too tight across the upper back.

Pretty coat, love the back pleat
I like this coat very much especially the back pleat. It's easier getting in and out of the car. The color I chose, purple, is so pretty. I only wish that when I send items back that I would receive a confirmation for them. I always receive notice when items are shipped but never when they're returned, Very disconcerting.

The style and color are super .... but the fabric is so "thin" .... too much so for a winter coat and for the pleat in the back to "hold"....wrinkles!!!!!!! .... can you imagine a winter coat with fabric that wrinkles? Surprised Appleseeds would put its name on it. very disappointed.

I want to say this is a lovely coat...fabric and overall construction are good. But I agree with another reviewer that there is a problem with the collar, which is even evident in the catalog photo if you look closely. I might have attempted to steam that out or have a tailor look at it, except that the overall fit didn't work for me. Although the shoulders and sleeves felt roomy enough, I couldn't button the top two buttons at all. I am a Size 14, 38D, and the large fit well in every other respect, so I would say this coat might not be suitable for anyone above a B-cup in any size. Otherwise, it seems to be a high-quality coat in a classic and versatile style...and for the price I paid, I really wish it had worked.

I don't like the collar at all.
Material is not good. I like the color and the length. The item was returned.

This coat hangs beautifully.
I love the way the coat hangs. It was easy to get on and I have large shoulders which are usually a problem. The color is a beautiful rich red.
I love wool and am always glad to find a natural fiber. I can find things at Appleseed's that I can not find anywhere else. Traditional clothing is my style and I can find that at Appleseed's.

My idea of a swing coat is one that is almost A shaped. This coat is fitted in the back. Also on one side the collar did not sit properly, it creased. It was promptly returned.
