I love this cozy new coatigan but my usual size XSP is a looser fit so the online item description is incorrect since it was listed as having a ‘tailored fit’. I personally don’t mind the looser fit since it gives me room to layer comfortably. For size reference, I’m 5′ 2.5″ and 108 pounds. The material is so thick that it can also work as a fall jacket (or winter jacket if you live in a warmer climate). The material is 51% acrylic, 27% polyester and 22% nylon and machine washable.

If you’re deciding between the two colors I found that the black color is versatile with the clothes in my wardrobe. I’m leaning towards returning the toffee nut color since the color wasn’t what I expected in person. Click here and here to see the toffee nut color which is more muted  since I was hoping for a warmer/richer shade. I didn’t try it on in store in size XXSP since I had just ordered it over the phone with Customer Service in order to match the price I paid for the black color. I also felt bad that that the store would have to put away the size I tried (new COVID-19 fitting room policy) which meant that no other customer would have been able to try it on or buy it for a few days if they wanted size XXSP.

I wore the black coatigan three days in a row when we went out last week and the material started to get fuzzy along the inner sleeves where my arms rub against the sides. This is easily remedied by using a sweater shaver between wears but if this is bothersome then I would pass on the jacket. Refer to this clip to see the before and after of how it looks when I use the sweater shaver on the material.

I also did end up getting this tee in both grey and white after I received the black color I reviewed in this post. I went up two sizes for a relaxed fit. The sizing is a bit inconsistent since the white color has shorter sleeves than the grey color which I noticed after I washed and lined dried both colors. The white color is thin but it isn’t too sheer with a nude bra.
