sp8grl This jacket isn't heavy at all! It wouldn't be your choice if you're going out in the snow or any severe weather.It's a nice jacket though. VERY light weight. I bought a medium when I'm actually a large. Lots of room so it's not form-fitting. I have a heavy sweater on too. It's a little flimsily (I know, not a word) made. Just the outer material and buttons (no inner lining). It'll be good enough while CA is having this mild weather.

jlc102482 The only good thing about these coats (I ordered the yellow and the orange) are the colors. They are lovely, though they are deeper than shown in the photo.What you can't really see in the photo is that the texture of this coat, despite being 100% wool, is like a lightweight boucle cardigan. This is not a coat at all, it's a button-down sweater and it both looks and feels like one.Second, the sleeves have very exaggerated flares at the cuffs (bell sleeves) and, well, you look like a wizard. The effect isn't chic or fashionable - it's just plain weird and ugly.Third, this coat is INCREDIBLY itchy. It's completely unlined and the wool must be of very poor quality, as it is the scratchiest wool I've ever felt (and I'm a fiber artist who works with all kinds of wool on a regular basis)! I don't know if anyone would be able to stand wearing this coat for more than 5 seconds unless they were wearing a long sleeved turtleneck. It's seriously THAT itchy.It's also worth mentioning that the in the photo, the lapels of the collar look slightly oversized. But in person, they are enormous to the point where they overlap my shoulders and flap around like wings that have been put on backwards. Again, the effect is totally weird.Last, the sizing is way off. I am usually a large in coats, as I have a large bust, so I ordered a medium and a large in this coat just in case. The medium was HUGE. It's almost like this is a plus size item that's been mislabeled.

que24 I ordered the jacket and was very pleased with it. The color was the exact color that was displayed and the fit was true to size and looked quite nice. Besides the price was even better. However, I did encounter one small problem. Because the jacket is wool and has no lining inside it made me itch. Because I like the jacket so much I'm sewing a lining inside the jacket rather than sending it back. So, if you can stand wearing wool without it being lined, this jacket is for you, but if you're like me, who wears anything that's wool, it must have a lining, this isn' for you. Still I would recommend this jacket because it was such a great buy.

MB4046 First let me say this jacket is a great value! It looks just like what you see on the website. I was dissapointed to find it had NO lining whatsoever. I anticpated it to be a weight suitable for wearing as an overcoat and ordered mine larger that the size I wear for this reason. It will serve my purpose in Spring and Fall but is not going to work in Winter. It is simply a jacket to be worn with trousers. My mistake! But I am ultimately happy with the purchase for the price!

zuno This coat looks cheap and it is pretty low priced. You get what you pay for.I will have to wear a long sleave blouse because it itches a lot. It may be that I am allergic to wool but this is too uncomfortable.The coat looks nicer in the photo. The coat just looks unfinished and the sleaves are wide. They are kind of bell shaped.I do like the buttons and that the coat is true to size but that is all.

hollin922 I got this jacket in fold and Chili, and they are both gorgeous and stylish. My one complaint is that while they are both the same size, the gold one is definitely more fitted (which I like). Perhaps one was mis-labeled? Either way, I can rectify this by reserving the chili as more of an outerwear piece for late fall/early spring. I consider these a great purchase overall.

CholaG I use the word topper instead of coat b/c it's a very light coat and the size is really big, I guess if you have to wear sweaters underneath, you'll have plenty of room. The texture is very soft and for the price, you complain. I think it's a cute "topper" on a not so cold day!!!!

jmau Ordered this in the green and black - love the style - fits a little looser than expected - but great for over sweaters and long sleeves - agree with other that it is very itchy - but the style and price more than make up for it - will get a lot of use out of them!

judie37 The style of the jacket was ok , thats why I gave it a two star. The quality of the fabric was made of very coarse wool. It is not comfortable to wear, or to touch I would not recommend it to anyone, but I love overstock and will continue to shop from them.
