    I'm totally in love with this coat! The unexpected color combined with the classic style makes for a fun overall effect. It's not a heavy coat, but I will get a lot of wear out of it during North Carolina's fall, early winter and early Spring. This coat will be a perfect topper for work or a night out. I originally ordered my true size, but sent back for the next size up to get more room in the shoulders.

      The moment I saw this coat I knew I had to have it...and when it arrived I knew I was right! I got the grey, although I really wanted the light blue...just felt the grey was more practical and would go with more. It's beautiful, well made like everything from Boden always is. We're having a warm streak here in Ohio, but I'm actually looking forward to cooler temps so I can break this beautiful coat out! I think it will be easy to dress up or down depending on what the occasion calls for, so versatile. I'm in love!

      I ordered this coat in the light blue and couldn't wait to receive it. I usually love Boden's coats...I have at least five! As soon as it arrived, I tried it on and, somehow, it looked bulky across the back. The size was correct as it fit everywhere else. All of my other Boden coats create a slimming silhouette, but this one just didn't. Also, the fabric was a disappointment, I was picturing a stiffer old school velvet and this had some sheen and crinkle to it. Just not my cup of tea!

      I love the look and light blue color of this jacket, but upon arrival it already had little blemishes in the fabric. I feel like it wouldn't last long in appearance with even light, normal wear. I wish the fabric was more resilient to scratching and marring. Sending it back for this reason alone.

      I was so excited for this coat to arrive; but alas, when I tried it on, my joy was quickly deflated. It seemed to fit everywhere except across the shoulder/back. It was decidedly tight. It might look good with a tight sleeveless top; but, then why would I be wearing a coat? So, I will be packaging it up and sending back to Boden with a heavy heart.

      I had to exchange the 12 for a 10 so it runs slightly large. Potential issue with the pleat in back staying flat (extra ironing?). Otherwise I love this jacket.

        Snug fit and cotton lining meant that all I could wear beneath would be a thin cotton t-shirt. The lining is a nice print, but cotton does not help the coat glide over whatever you are wearing underneath.

          Great coat - spectacular light blue color. Very soft, nice details. Perfect weight for most of the winter weather in Virginia. Nicely tailored with a little edginess to it.

            This is a great coat! The pale blue is a beautiful color, the velvet is stylish and very comfortable. It fits true to size, I'm 5'3" and typically a size 4 (US) which is what I ordered and it fits great. The coat is not long - the way it looks on the model is accurate, it ends at upper thigh - which I think is cute for a change from the mid-thing/knee-length styles.

            This jacket is adorable. I love so much about it - the color, the fabric, the buttons. It fit me really well through the shoulders, but then was way too big through the torso. It is not flattering at all on me. A smaller size would be too tight through my shoulders. I contemplated bringing it in to a taylor to be fitted, but in the end, I will sadly return it.
