This coat is soo warm and so light! The length is perfect, falling mid thigh. The color is a lovely anthracite and not the boring black of many coats. The reason I only gave it 4 starts is that the sleeves are a little snug compared to some other coats I have had. If you have very large upper arms and wear very thick sweaters underneath it may feel tight but for normal arms, even with a sweater there is no issue. There is plenty of room across the shoulders so plenty of freedom of movement. It is fitted just slightly around the waist giving a lovely shape. I actually bought this coat as a second choice as my first choice was lost in shipping but I am sooo overjoyed that I now have this coat instead of the other. Great coat!
