    Although the material is luxuriously soft and the lining (as always) is fun, this coat fits my busty shape all wrong.

      Moleskin... So when i first saw that I thought it was going to be a rough or hard material. I don't really know where the name Moleskin came from but it's just cotton - flannel with out the fuzz. Overall I like the jacket it's soft and nice. The jacket is not to thick so it would be good for fall.

        I wanted a coat that would work over dresses or skirts in the spring or early fall and this fit the bill. It even works with jeans. The coat is a nice in-between weight, so not as thin as a Mac, but not as thick as a winter coat--just enough warmth from the moleskin (a thicker material; I got the winter white color) and fully lined. As always from Boden the coat is well tailored. My usual size 2R worked well, though I would suggest ordering up a size if you want to get a heavier weight sweater underneath. The only slight negative, and I knew it when I bought it, is I would have liked it to be an inch or so longer to completely cover the hem of my longer dresses (below the knee length; I am 5'3"), but otherwise it works beautifully.

        Well made but didn't work for me

        While I thought the coat was very well made, I ended up sending it back. The pocket placement hit at the worst spot for my build, making my hips look much larger. The pockets are also not very useful unless you leave unbuttoned. I thought the lining was cute but the coat color was a bland, flat black rather than a rich, dark one. I also thought the buttons were unattractive against the coat color. The sale price is excellent for the quality so I can see this easily working well for others.

        Maybe because it is double breasted, I feel like this is tighter than I wanted for over sweaters in the fall but my husband thought it looked edgy and liked it so for the sale price, I am going to give it a try. I like the blue because it goes with so much and is dark but not outdoorsy (like the browns and greens are).

          Like everything I've gotten from Boden, this coat is well made and fully lined. It's perfect for the unseasonably chilly spring this year. The classic style and long cut goes well with nice dresses for work as well as jeans on the weekend. Plus, the length keeps my skirts from getting blown around in the wind!

          I do wish the pockets were a bit different so I could put my hands in them, but I've just gotten in the habit of carrying gloves when I go for long walks.

                    Very nice coat - well made. However the buttons are a major issue. I could not push the buttons through the slot to close the coat. I am not a weakling - but they were tough! Because of this, I had to return it.
