Love this shell
This coat is made out of an amazingly comfortable material. Yes, the sleeves are snug, but it helps the coat to not look frumpy, as the body fits larger. And it really does stretch. It doesn't appear to be that warm. However, I had a long sleeve shirt and a sweatshirt on underneath in 30 degree weather on a walk and began to sweat! All in all I love it and am very glad I splurged.

This is one awesome Jacket!!
I got this jacket as a birthday present and absolutely love it!! I have received so many compliments on it and everyone wants to know where I got it. It is a great layering piece over my scuba hoodies and helps keep the cold new england wind out. This jacket is made impeccably well and you can tell that a lot of time was taken developing the style and fit. The unique tweed like fabric is an added plus to help my the jacket one of a kind.

I was super pumped to try this jacket but was so disappointed.
I wear a 12 in everything LLL except a 10 in CRBs and a few other things.
This jacket fit strangely loose I some areas and tight I others. Also, the main problem was something made it ride up weirdly so that I looked like I actually had a hunchback. I tinker it is because the fabric is quite stiff but there is a pleat in the back.
I wanted this t work but it just didn't. Bummer.

Looks great, cozy, love the cut, length
I just got this jacket and tried it on and it looks great I really like it, I haven't worn it out yet. Seeing the reviews, I wasn't sure if I should order my usual top/jacket size 6 or go down a size to a size 4. The reviews suggested going down a size might be snug on the shoulders which would irritate me. I got the size 6 and love the size. I am very petite, 5'2'' 110lbs and size 2 lululemon on the pants but the fit is great in size 6 for me. Nice on the shoulders. This is not a 'tent' jacket but it is a slight A line. It is a beautiful length, covers the bum but a nice bomber style that will look great with skinny jeans and rain boots. The black is sleek - can't wait to wear it out.

Holy constricting arms!!
There is no doubt, that i am a lulu addict, sowhen I saw this jacket on wmtm i ordered it right away! I ordered in a size 8, so I could layer (i usually run 6 or 8 in tops). I got it in the mail today. I instantly loved the color (plum/zinfadel), the body fits loose, but the arms are TIGHT, they pull and feel uncomfortable. I have never had this problem before, so i dont think my arms are that much larger than the rest of my body! So bummed!!

I wasn't sure if I needed this in a 2 or 4. I'm 5' and about 108 pounds, but we're all made differently! I ordered both the 2 and the 4 so I could try on and decide. I also got a lightweight zip up layer to wear under it. Here's what I found:
The 2 was tight under my arms, restricting comfortable arm movement. The 4 was perfect. The 2 may have been slightly more tailored to my body, but the 4 wasn't that noticably different. I am so glad I tried them both.
Other than the arm restriction, the 2 fit beautifully, even with a layer underneath. I am fairly muscular, so that may have been part of it. Just wanted to add my experience, because reading through all the other ones was helpful for me.

Good construction, missing a couple of key things
So overall, this jacket is very sturdy, well-constructed, and looks super cute. Two things that could've made it better are: 1) More pockets, 2) some kind of hidden cinching piece underneath the shell. Extra pockets would make it easy to store multiple small items in the jacket, and small pockets that sit higher up (maybe just below the chest) would be particularly useful for things like cell phones and keys. A cinching piece underneath the shell would be helpful because although this jacket was designed to be a bit loose so that you can layer underneath, it is far too loose at the bottom and allows for too much wind to flow upward. Perhaps future pieces can have either a draw cord or just an elastic piece lining around the lower part of the jacket, much like the way most performance (ski) jackets are made.

Love! So excited about my new jacket! =)
This is a beautiful jacket! I found the black tweed one on sale yesterday at my local store and wasn't there looking for a jacket, but loved it once I tried it on. It's very classy looking and very warm, thick and soft on the inside with an insulated hood. My usual size 4 fit perfectly but I sized up because I'm tall (5'10") to a 6, which does look a little big (slightly boxy) but wanted to make sure I could fit a thick sweater or hoodie comfortably underneath... Plus the added length helped to cover my butt. =) If you're on the fence and looking for a jacket that could be dressed up or down, I'd say this would fit the bill. It fits looser so if you're average height you could probably go with your usual size, but I sized up to make sure it was long enough - something to think about for my fellow tall ladies. =)

If you are on the fence...
Hurry and get off before this (sale) jacket is gone! It is super cute and is exactly what I needed as something that bridges the gap between sporty lulu hoodies that I cannot layer with and winter parkas. I will wear this to the studio as well as casually with jeans/cords. I can for sure fit a layer under it. The arms are not tight. Love it!

I bought this jacket to replace my older Lululemon jacket. I love the plum/deep zinfandel (maroon/ purple) colour! I was worried it might be too short in the front, but it's not. I usually take a size 10 in jackets and this one fit perfectly! The arms were not loose, so if I had gone down a size they would have been too tight. The back is very flattering and the perfect length. The cuffs actually do keep your knuckles warm. The hood is extra warm! My friend said she noticed my new jacket as soon as I walked in the room! We both love it!
