To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So I should have seen that ALL reviews until 10/12/19 were "Vine " reviews where the product was given for free to the reviewer, but I did not... Negatives: This coat is bulky and very heavy weightwise, it feels like a weighted blanket. In addition it smells just weird, it says "machine washable", but I did not want to test that; I highly doubt the wool would survive the washing machine. The fit is oversized and probably measured on a male model, the shoulders are huge and the thing just drags you down. The lining is sewn in crooked, hangs down on one side. Positive: The pockets are nice and big. I bought the light grey one and it is going back...
I have been looking, buying and returning for weeks. Coats are expensive and poorly made if they aren’t a fortune. I don’t know why I didn’t think of Daily Ritual sooner. I have several basic pieces from them at this point and Amazon has it going on with this label. The coat is perfect weight for average winter weather. Has a nice relaxed fit. If you like things fitted order a size down. The wool is soft and did not come totally wrinkled like so many. Off gas is minimal at most for a black dyed product. Don’t hesitate if you like the look and are considering buying. Amazing for the price and comparable to costs 5 times the price.
I really love this coat and it is over sized which is stated in description but you need to go down a size and it will still fit as an over sized coat and not a coat that just looks to big. So if you are a large order a medium and you will still get the oversize look. I tried to exchange for a medium and they want to charge me triple the price. I called Amazon and their response was a very nice lady that said "sorry can't help you". What kind of a response is that "we are going to charge you triple to exchange for the correct size." I even went by their size guide. Not good business in my book. I do love the coat-just don't know what else to do.
The material is high maintenance, I need to be careful with having every type of lint and dust in the environment stick to this coat. This material looks cheap since I bought it in black and you can see all the stuff that sticks to it. Mind you, I work in a clean corporate professional office, the dress code is professional. Needless to say, this coat has embarrassed me... I don't think this is a good buy even if you do not plan to be dressy and professional, perhaps in another color, it looks nice and will not notice the lint but for me, this black coat just looks dirty.
However, it is very comfortable, loose-fitting, warm and I like that I can layer on top of my suit, blazer, sweater, jacket, and then on top it off with this coat. I get cold and this jacket helps me keep warm, sadly it makes me look like a hobo.
The truth is, I should have ordered a medium, BUT the navy blue in a large was such an unbelievable bargain (less than half the price of it in a medium) that I took a chance on it. It's roomy, for sure - but it will be great with layers underneath and for the price I won't mind having the sleeves taken up a bit. So cute and perfect for fall with jeans and boots!
This is just to cool! The reviews weren’t that good but l bought it anyway.. l love it! It’s navy blue, large and Looks good with blue jeans, leggings and just whatever! The price is ridiculously cheap, I’ll buy grey! I decided to dry clean ..l like it that much.
