I received this coat in the new heather acorn color. Refer to my review of the coat from last year here. The measurements of size 00 regular are as follows: 15″ shoulders, 12″ upper arms, 10″wrists , 23″ sleeve length, 37″ chest, 36″ waist, 35.5″ total length. Note that it’s dry clean only. This year’s version of the coat fits a little bit looser and longer when I compared this year’s measurements to last year’s measurements of the same size. The two front buttons hit a little lower on my torso than I prefer so I probably need the coat in petite sizing this year for a better overall fit. I did not like how the wool material and exposed seams looked in the heather acorn color as seen here and here in natural lighting. The coat is unlined and scratchy due to being 100% wool but if you wear it with long sleeves then the material should be tolerable. It’s a lightweight coat that’s suitable as a fall layering piece.

I was hoping to love this neutral cardigan but the sleeves are really long and I didn’t love the fit on me. I forgot take measurements but based on where it hits my wrist I would say the sleeve length is around 25″. My usual size XXS regular is a relaxed boxy fit through the body. As another reviewer noted the button holes are unfinished as seen here which makes it look like they just poked holes in the sweater. There are side slits so the hemof your top/tee will show on the sides unless you tuck in your top.

Thanks for stopping by!
